Preserve Henderson County Development Moratorium

Our mountains are being devastated. Our air, water, homes and quality of life are under attack from irresponsible development that is accelerating daily. We need more stringent protection for our mountains and communities, before there is nothing left to protect. We, the undersigned, demand that the Planning Board and Board of Commissioners meet their responsibilities to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our current residents by: - Enacting an immediate moratorium on large-scale development - Incorporating requirements for mandatory impact studies on infrastructure (including roads, water, sewage, schools and emergency services) in the proposed land development code - Granting no future vested rights to large-scale development - Strictly enforcing current and future development laws and imposing fines for violations
