Explain yourselves

The recent decision by two members of the Cherokee County parks and Recreation Board to allow one of our most treasured landmarks to be turned into an industrial site is beyond belief.

The Shinbone Wind Project project was kept secret and voted on without fanfare in what can only be interpreted as an attempt to exclude public participation in the matter. When the Board was charged with turning Cherokee Rock Village into a tourist attraction, I don’t think anyone had this in mind. In fact, the consequences of such a project will decrease tourism despite the sunny projections offered by the “independent” economic assessment conducted at Jacksonville State and financed by Pioneer Green Energy.

I think you’d have to search far and wide to find many in favor of turning our nature park into an access route for an overgrown power plant. this project should be canceled immediately and the two abstaining members of the Board asked to explain their action.
