Epps Bridge vote

Be sure to check out Lee Becker's take on the proposed Epps Bridge development as that project is up for a vote tonight by the Oconee County Commission.

It's expected to be approved, but let if you live out in The OC be sure to let your commissioners know your thoughts. Me? I'm skeptical of it for a variety of reasons ...

- Substantially increased traffic to accommodate a boom-and-bust development
- Recommendation of denial from the North Georgia Regional Development Center
- Concerns over mitigation efforts of existing wetlands

I'd like to see significant conditions imposed by the commission if they opt to move forward, though I'd rather than say 'no thanks' to the project.
