The Fairbanks North Star Borough is in the process of attempting to push area-wide change with a scope that is far reaching. The disturbing part of this is that they are attempting to mislead the residents of the FNSB regarding the true end game.
They are asking for a change in the grandfather rules regarding all property. Next, they will begin to spot zone property throughout the FNSB and make it much more restrictive. If you live on a piece of property and moved there because you can live the lifestyle you wish to have, these changes will affect you. They are far reaching. Do not buy into the buzz lines — “times change and we just need to keep up” or “we are preparing for the development of the gas line” — those are the FNSB’s way to redirect your focus on the issue.
The issue is removing from you the ability to live on your property in the manner that you see fit. Help stop these people. They are attempting to restrict your freedom.
