Action Alert! Action Alert! *** Senate To Vote on National Heritage Areas NIGHTMARE THE VOTE IS ON WEDNESDAY! You remember green lining. The Federal government puts a circle around an area they want to control and then over time gradually infill land use controls with Federal zoning and local zoning coercively imposed at the “suggestion” of the Federal agencies. They impose their will by the threat of lost loans, guarantees, Federal funds, water projects, Endangered Species Act enforcement, wetlands enforcement, lost road projects and many more. Local government caves in. You lose. Greenline control is like redlining loan companies use to reduce or eliminate economic support for communities within the redline. It is like a reverse buffer zone we stopped them from using around all national parks 20 years ago. Together, land use groups largely stopped the green lining name from being used, so now they have a substitute. It is Heritage Areas. The new Greenline land use control concept. They just put a pretty name on it, but if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck, no matter what some folks will tell you in Washington. Call Today, Tuesday and Wednesday. Ask for the staff person who handles heritage areas. Ask at least three others to call too. THE FOLLOWING LIST OF SENATORS MUST HEAR FROM YOU! On Wednesday, July 14, the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee will vote on bill that SPELLS DOOM FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS, LANDOWNERS, AND LOCAL ZONING. Sen. Craig Thomas’ “National Heritage Partnership Act” (S. 2543) would create a National Heritage Areas program that threatens to swallow every community in the United States. The National Heritage Partnership Act is a FEDERAL ZONING scheme perpetrated under the guise of preservation. It will spur a FLOOD of National Heritage Areas, each of which will DEVOUR private property rights and local land use control. Funding for National Heritage Areas is administered through the National Park Service to Green special interest groups. The Park Service and the Greens then team-up to preserve EVERYTHING within the Heritage Area that they deem fit! Private property rights will be LOST. Local control over zoning and land use will be LOST. UNLESS WE ACT NOW! The National Heritage Areas Policy Act is the latest attempt by the federal government to snuff-out property rights and purchase influence over local communities and their zoning practices.
