ON ANOTHER FRONT in NEW JERSEY: MORE PROOF Agenda 21 is AFTER property rights!

Thanks again to the New Jersey Patriot Blog for this newspaper article that shows the danger to property rights wrought by sustainability and Agenda 21:

In Belmar, developers of commercial district projects must achieve a minimum number of points on the borough’s sustainability checklist in order to proceed.

In Morristown, Jonathan Rose Companies, a green urban solutions planner, is guiding redevelopment and master plan revisions.

In Somerset County, stakeholders are discussing “Sustainable Somerset: The Strategic Plan for Somerset County,” a framework to foster the interrelated goals of regional economic growth and infrastructure, sustainable communities and environmental protection.

Three examples of the erosion of property rights and individual rights too!  In the Belmar example, you will have to comply with dubious “green” regulations to develop YOUR property.  In Morristown, a private company performs in effect a governmental function.  Jonathan Rose is not under the Constitution as it is private.  Who is watching the watchers?  In Somerset County, unknown and unelected “stakeholders” are promulgating ideas for regional regulations to enforce sustainability.  Sounds like Tom DeWeese is right again!

But the New Jersey Patriot Blog reports that Somerset County withdrew its sustainability plan by the planning board (BTW, apply for YOUR community’s planning board and stop Agenda 21 and ICLEI!) and it hopes the light can be shone on the matter.  Here’s a candle!  One small candle can save your life in a car stranded in a blizzard!  Let’s place our light together to get Agenda 21 and its handmaiden/Fifth Column ICLEI OUT OF USA!
