Raleigh Faces Backlash After Trashing Environmental Improvement Strategy
By Brent Woodcox
Stop me if you have heard this one before. Raleigh tries to implement a progressive, forward-thinking policy that will positively impact quality of life in our city. One person complains. City leaders immediately abandon the effort. It’s an all too familiar story in our city.
Well, it happened again.
From the News and Observer…
So that’s it. One business complains about what could happen and the effort to improve the city and our environment is completely abandoned. Even though the city had touted themselves as a national leader over the program.
Just like that. $30,000 in taxpayer money literally in the garbage. Raleigh isn’t a city of innovation. It’s a city of NIMBYs.
