I do not understand why the woods is not getting permission for county sewer system eventhough they offered to build a section of the Rea Road extension. The full extension would connect N.C. 16 to N.C. 84 and help relieve a significant traffic problem in western Union County. Sealy's offer would save the state millions of dollars. It allowed the state to give higher priority to the road project.
I hope they get approval for sewer system.

Thank you,

The problem is there is a special interest group that is trying to stop all development to prove they can get there way.They moved here with no strings attached,now they expect the new commers to pay for what they screwed up.But if you look in that area there is not any commercial or industrial districts,thats where the tax base comes from.IF YOU STOP ROADS AN SEWER YOU STOP GROWTH.Thats the name of the game.Ckeck out Indian Trail,turn down all road improvments,stop sewer tapps,instant GRAVEYARD.

Actually the problem is growth unchecked without regard to ensuring that current/future infrastructure meets the current/future needs.

When 12 Mile Creek WWTP (which isn't even completed yet) has one of the WORST records within NC for exceedences to it's discharge (meaning dumping of UNTREATED sewage into the waterways), that alone should be a concern. Now that they say that when the plant is COMPLETED it WON'T meet the needs of the county based upon the APPROVED sewer permits (meaning current users hooked-up to the system PLUS future, not-yet build users) the need for the state to step in and curtail the County's Wild West growth pace was sorely needed.

I totally agree with Larryd. The growth is important, specially residential growth. Let the new comer come in to the county & they will help you your economy. Otherwise county will not grow, likewise some in south carolins. So give permission for water-sewer to the new development and please let the new residential developer to build some homes.

Why is it important to build uncontrolably? There
is ENOUGH growth in the area. There's not enough water, schools, adquate roads or infrastructure. It is PROVEN fact that residential growth does not generate enough tax revenue to fully support the growth. My taxes went up 11% thats (ELEVEN percent) this year to support the uncontrolled and unreasonable growth in western Union County. The newcomers don't mind paying it, because it is far cheaper than what they were paying up north. But those of us that have lived here most of their lives and are on fixed incomes, it is extremely difficult. The builder said this was not quid pro quo, but that's exactly what it is. If I don't get my sewer, then I won't build the road. What is that if it isn't Quid pro quo? I commend the planning board for standing up to the commissioners and the developers. I would love to see a permanent moritorium on all building in Western UC, but the County Commission is so in bed with the builder community it won't happen. I can't wait until the next election.
