Pickens County Council in charge or the United Nations?

My understanding was the Pickens County Comprehensive Plan was shelved and was not ever approved. But yet the County Council is getting ready to amend it. Pickens County Taxpayer Association and Conservatives of the Upstate members vehemently opposed the Comprehensive Plan several years ago, as it is a danger to Pickens County citizenry’s rights.

By amending this supposedly “shelved plan”…does this make it valid now?

Both PCTA and COTU have spoken numerous times on our disapproval of any Comprehensive Plan that weakens citizenry’s rights especially in the area of property rights. There was objectionable language in the plan that we brought attention to several years ago.

The council members are our only defense against this United Nations Agenda 21 of developing “comprehensive plans.” By passing this amendment, I am assuming the plan now is being taken off the shelf and given teeth.

I oppose taking this Comprehensive Plan off the shelf along with Conservatives of the Upstate members. We were assured it didn't have any teeth and just sat on a shelf...

Council’s number one priority should be protecting Pickens’ citizenry’s rights…and I truly understand the safety issue of the coal ash. But by amending the plan …I fear this gives the "shelved plan" teeth for misuse by other forces such as HUD and the EPA as well as non-governmental groups like Ten at the Top and Upstate Forever, etc…to have ammo to further their agenda.

Sustainable development encompasses every aspect of our lives and its goal is social equity. It is a political movement to replace capitalism with government control of EVERYTHING!  It is a relentless attack of property rights and freedom.

Please ask our council to be vigilant on what they are about to do by opening the door to this document by amending it. Taking it off the it new life.  The United Nations, EPA, and HUD are watching I am sure to gain footholds wherever they can.

Are we not sovereign? Do we truly want to open the door to the United Nations dictating the guidelines of what we can grow, eat, where we can live, the method of transportation we use to get to work, what jobs we can have, how many children we can have, and what kind of education our children can have?
