Solution: let's pave Washington County.

Hi folks,

Something for the scatter brained NIMBY's who turned out in a deluge last year to vote down a perfectly sensible referendum on farmland preservation.

What's ahead for use of land?

Washington County plans for 2035

Posted: Jan. 12, 2008

West Bend - Washington County will be home to 157,265 people by 2035 - nearly 39,800 more than lived here in 2000, regional and county planners forecast in a draft county land-use plan.

Remember, what this means is that those of us who live in the cities and villages of Washington County will subsidize sewer and water and electricity for all those new businesses and subdivisions -- our tax dollars will be drizzled out to finance more strip malls. Maybe that's more attractive to voters than financing our schools?

And so it goes.
