Sandusky County's Comprehensive Plan sounds OK at first glance, but a more thorough reading clearly shows this plan is straight out of the UN Agenda 21 master plan for every community in the USA as well as the world. When we accept grants from the EPA, HUD and other sources, this is your taxpayer money used against you. We are then beholden to government mandates and more layers of unelected bureaucrats. Sandusky County needs to solve its own unique set of problems rather than look to Washington and its boilerplate, one-size-fits-all solutions. The federal government is $17 trillion in debt, so grants are no longer the solution. No matter how you slice or shuffle the money, it will be an extra tax for the already burdened taxpayer.
This plan incrementally turns up the heat and leads us toward Agenda 21 goals and involvement with the UN. Please see www.agenda21course.com or google "Agenda 21 for dummies" to learn what this is about.
Greene and Pickaway counties in Ohio have commissioners who have said "no" to their communities' sustainable, comprehensive, smart-growth plans.
I would urge the Sandusky County commissioners, township trustees and other elected entities to please read the plan before giving it the stamp of approval. The plan, more than 300 pages, is extremely comprehensive and includes controlling every aspect of your life and property in Sandusky County. When you hear comprehensive, think "deprivation of property rights." Other terms to watch for are smart growth, growth management and sustainability, which now cleverly are used to disguise from elected officials and the public that it is UN Agenda 21.
United Nations Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of extreme environmentalism, social engineering, social justice, redistribution of global wealth and global political control that was initiated at the United Nations Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992. This plan of "sustainable development" views the American way of life as destructive to the environment. It is truly a socialist doctrine and has permeated every agency of government from federal to local.
