Douglas: abandon 2050 Plan

Darrell Everidge/

At Tuesday’s Board of Commissioners work session, commissioner John Douglas called for the abandonment of the 2050 Plan.

He called it “unworkable, unwise and unwanted.”

Douglass said he would not appoint a representative from the first district to the 2050 Citizen’s Panel.

“I hope that by withdrawing much of east and south Newton from participation, it will deal a fatal blow to the whole thing,” Douglas said.

The agenda for Tuesday’s BOC public meeting does not include discussion of the 2050. The meeting will be available via livestream at
