means we value the small town feel of North Plains and believe the
current growth rate is sufficient. From 2005 to 2007, it is
expected that over 150 construction permits will be issued for
residential lots within the current city limits.
we value slow growth. If the annexations are approved, 389 more
housing units will be built as quickly as possible. North Plains
will be “Under Construction” for the foreseeable future.
we value a quality of life that will be lost with increased
traffic, noise, and congestion brought by hundreds of new residents.
we value preserving productive farmland for food security in a
global economy. The highest and best use of farmland is not for
means we value a community whose rural roots and identity are worth
preserving. With big new developments and cookie-cutter homes,
North Plains will look like “Anywhere, USA.”
NO means we, not developers, should decide what is best
for North Plains. After all, we’re the ones who live here!
