Several years ago the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District created a new regulation that would create a new tax burden on the citizens. This tax would be determined by measuring the amount of impermeable surface (roof, asphalt driveway, etc) on a property (business, home, church, etc.). The logic (and I use this term loosely) goes something like this. The more impermeable surface you have, the more storm water run-off you create, and you, the citizen must pay for any harm to the environment that might be created.
Unfortunately, there is no proof that the water that runs off of your roof does any damage to the environment, nor did you the citizen have any chance to voice your objection to this tax (Does “taxation without representation” ring any bells?).
Again, for those of us who understand Agenda 21, this is just another way to tax the citizen into the poor house while “nudging” us to build taller, narrower, and hopefully smaller homes. Got to love those folks who just can’t get through a day without trying to control our every decision.
Last month (September 2014) the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law provided a Merit Brief to the Supreme Court of Ohio. The results of this case, which could have important implications beyond the state, will not be known for some time. To learn more about this case, follow this link.

Normally the author of the website www.Agenda21course.com does not compose the articles included in the newsletter. In this the author would like to make an exception.
The official website for Smart Growth, www.smartgrowthamerica.org , is working actively, aggressively, and successfully to advance Agenda 21 in an attempt to transform our cities.
The Smart Growth America website lists 10 principles which are currently being used to transform our cities. What the website does not tell you are the many negative consequences to the quality life of those living in the cities. Nor does it tell the truly horrible impact these principle will have on those living in the rural lands. Nor does it tell you how Smart Growth will steal freedom from every single American regardless of where they live. This then is why the information in this article is so important.
Below are the 10 smart growth principles listed on the www.smartgrowthamerica.org website which are being used to convince those going to the site just how wonderful will be the results of smart growth planning. You may click on any of the principles to see more information.
1. Mix land uses
As you no doubt know, if the left can keep environmental justice moving down the track, we will be nudged/forced off of the rural lands and into town to be monitored through the use of Smart Growth policies. Here are two examples of Smart Growth policies . To learn how the behavior of Seattle citizens are being controlled by the “garbage police”, click on this link.

Little things can go a long way towards transforming America-and not always in a good way.
One of those “little things” are the scooters, which are suddenly flooding our cities in large numbers. In Columbus, Ohio eight vendors will each be allowed to put 500 scooters on the streets/sidewalks. Safety wise, what could possibly go wrong in this scenario? Never fear. The solution according to the article is to simply “redesign the city streets” spending untold millions of dollars to allow the safer movement of the scooter riders and bicyclists.
More importantly the result, as more and more of the road is being dedicated to the use of scooters and bicycles, is greater congestion for those driving cars. This in turn encourages more and more folks to move closer to the downtown resulting in the building of more and more high rises to accommodate the influx of people to the downtown.
Voile! The city is redesigned into a Smart Growth city where the lives of the now packed and stacked citizenry can be more easily controlled by the Elite.
Perhaps a “little thing” like adding scooters to the city streets and sidewalks is not such a “little thing.”

Being sure that the homes in this Michigan town were assessed correctly for taxes was the excuse used by assessors to trespass INTO the town’s homes. When some homeowners refused the assessors entry, the homeowners were punished through their wallets.
Only because these policies were created by elected officials, who could be threatened with being “unelected”, was there a happy ending. Without this happy ending, would the next bureaucrats have attempted to invade the homes to check the amount of insulation in the walls or the efficiency of the appliances?

This short video uses information about development in Los Angeles, California to debunk the supposed necessity of creating a multitude of high rises to replace the suburbs. Further, the video explains how by following the money you can see who will really benefit if pack and stack is achieved, and why it is a mistake on all levels to allow this densification to occur.
