I love this county. I think adopting this ordinance would not protect, it would destroy the character of our county. It would invoke the meddling* control people in the suburbs use against each other. It turns our appreciation of the rights of our neighbors to do pretty much whatever they want on it’s head. Zoning makes pretty much everything illegal so anyone inclined to meddle will simply call the zoning officer to cite the victim under one of those prohibited acts, like making an objectionable sound that they can hear at the property line with human senses. Overcontrolling regulations like this stifle innovation, decrease productivity, increase costs, and generally drive people crazy. Rather than preventing problems it will cause them. Rather that enabling prosperity, this ordinance will kill jobs and drive people out of county.
* From Dictionary.com: “verb (used without object), meddling. 1. to involve oneself in a matter without right or invitation; interfere officiously and unwantedly: Stop meddling in my personal affairs.”
