Falls Lake: The Mother of All Bad Zoning Cases

Record #:
The issues surrounding the re-zoning of a development in the Lake Falls watershed is explored. Ten reasons why the zoning is bad for the Raleigh area, the local water supply, the environment, and private citizens are stated. The main reason the zoning is drawing the anger from many is due to the pollution future developments may cause and the opening for shopping centers to be built in the watershed area under the new regulations. Wake County’s Board of Commissioners were the group who approved the rezoning.
