Keeping our Fingers Crossed

"Henderson County Planning staff will recommend the Planning Board deny a subdivision permit for a controversial plan to build 86 homes and a fly fishing lodge next to the North Mills River Campground."
Its not a done deal yet but things are looking up for one of our favorite places to catch stockers.
"During the past two weeks, the Planning Department has been flooded with about 30 comments from groups and individuals on developer Kent Smith’s proposal to develop the Big Creek tract. Groups from the campground managers to environmentalists and trout fishermen said dense development would threaten water quality in the North Mills River, a state designated high quality trout stream and drinking water supply."
Thanks to the guys from Moldy Chum for getting the word out about this while I was on vacation.
