Question for Bob Stacey.
Bob, Under SB 1011 we were given the ability to designate Urban Reserves (first priority for future boundary expansions) on foundational farm land when on balance it is needed for the urban economy. You are on record of opposing the minor amount of Urban Reserves designated in Washington County that are on foundational farm land even though Cornelius, the County and even Metro feel they need this for employment over the next 50 years. Why are you stuck on applying the old rule of always protecting farm land when determining where boundary expansions occur when clearly it lead to bad decisions (like Damascus) and didn't work?
