DID YOU KNOW THERE WAS A DEADLINE FOR HOUSING SETTLEMENT COMMENTS IMPOSED BY THE MONITOR?

We didn't and our officials certainly didn't tell us. Fortunately, THE EXAMINER NEWS has. Mount Pleasant's Supervisor Maybury certainly keeps her constituents informed.

MAYBURY BALKS @ DEADLINE FOR HOUSING SETTLEMENT COMMENTS

--A tight deadline to respond to information released this week that will be incorporated into a new zoning analysis related to the affordable housing settlement sparked scathing criticisms from Mount Pleasant Supervisor Joan Maybury.

Maybury, who has been highly outspoken on issues related to the 2009 agreement, argued that the 31 municipalities named in the settlement were given only one day to address potential inaccuracies in data released on Monday that had been collected for the upcoming release of the Huntington Analysis.

--The highly anticipated Huntington Analysis, now scheduled to be released on Sept. 8, will evaluate residential zoning to find out if a community’s current zoning is discriminatory by pushing minorities to specific parts of town, a controversial issue related to the settlement.

--On Monday, Maybury said that while municipalities had been informed that the deadline for responses was abruptly stretched to Friday, Aug. 29 instead of Tuesday, she said the town would not be opening the data package because of  “too many restrictions.” One restriction limits a municipality to viewing the new data on only one computer, she said.

  3. This isn't a bad newspaper in a time when we dont really have newspapers any more. What I really miss though is the North County newspaper. They had really in depth corruption, crime and graft stories, knew how to shine a light on government misdoings, and very good sports coverage.
