I can see through Woodward's attempt to save the "pristine" land as nothing more than trying to wrangle commerce to a more desirable location for his Volusia County interests. How could this be considered "growth in the wrong place"? That land has been farmed for decades. Nothing but open potatoe fields and it has been making someone money. I like the comment about the 800 trucks a day on a two lane highway. You can tell who has no clue about commerce. How do you think the farms and nurseries that use the roads now have been making their way around all that rural heaven? Making a good living in the process. Don't let Woodward and the rest fool you . It's not to save the land from explosive over-developement , it's to put a dollar in the pocket of richer interests. That land's been making money for years, unless you stole those potatoes you ate today, or chips you ate yesterday. Someone grew them and sold them, possibly from those very farms. Call it Ag 1, call it Industrial, how many jobs does Woodward not want Putnam to have? Ask that question to the workers waiting in line for one of those new jobs.
