Plan Bay Area is part of a national plan by many names. At a meeting on November 7, 2013 of the BOCC officials of Saint Lucie County listened to residents and voted 4 -1 to withdraw from Seven50, their version of Plan Bay Area. A tape of the meeting and some of the arguments against the plan:
- How does building stack and pack housing on the coast solve the problem of rising sea levels?We don’t trust Washington. We trust you, our local elected officials.
- This plan calls for housing without jobs. That is what we have now, housing without jobs. Why build more housing without jobs.
- We already have regional projects that don’t work. Nothing gets done by regional groups.
- Tell them to keep their money and leave us alone.
