A threat to our bluffs (10/16/2013)
From: Jim Gurley

An important public hearing is coming up next week about efforts to take away our bluffland protections adopted by the county just a few years ago. Rural AND city residents need to attend, and instruct the commissioners to vote against the bad proposed changes to our county ordinance.

Winona County Commissioner Steve Jacob, the ringleader of these roll-backs, likes to say he was given a “mandate” by his constituents to do so.

Well, I am a constituent of Mr. Jacob’s and I can tell you that he won our district by just 86 votes -- hardly a mandate, especially for the kind of reckless, radical changes he is proposing for the county.

Jacob strongly opposed holding a public information meeting about his major proposals, and has tried to rush them through as quickly as possible. Why? Is it because he’s afraid of people knowing what these changes are really about?

Mr. Jacob’s amendment would cause erosion on the top and bottom of bluffs, would weaken our model burial-ground ordinance, and make many more houses visible from the valleys below.

Attend the Winona County Planning Commission open public hearing and let the commissioners know how you feel! Tuesday October 22, at 7:00 p.m., second-floor county government building, 4th and Main in Winona.
