Resolution Opposing the Adoption of Supplemental Standards for Multi-Family Housing in the Town of Boone
HCP ARTICLE BY JESSE WOOD HERE
It's great that we have one entity in local government with a little bit of common sense! If the Boone Planning Board were to have it's way, builders would not be allowed to build upscale apartment complexes with 3 car garages or "extra" bathrooms - no matter what the demand for them might be. If Boone wants to subsidize low income housing, they should do so with their own tax revenues and/or available grants. Preventing developers from building to accommodate what they believe to be market demand is not what a free country is all about! If buyers (or renters) want more parking, or more bathrooms, or smaller master bedrooms, they should be provided for. It's not up to the People's Republic of Boone to decide what others may have.
