The County's Land Use Plan will be discussed this week on Noon Edition.

Every 10 years, Indiana law requires counties to produce a plan on how they will develop land. Monroe County’s plan has passed its initial committee, and now moves to the County Commissioners.

The plan is a controversial one, and this week on Noon Edition, we’ll sit down with both sides of the debate.

Joining us in studio will be Jim Murphy, President of CFC Properties; and Mark Stoops, a County Commissioner who voted to move the plan out of committee.

Join us right here for a live chat, or join the conversation by phone.

    What restrictions are proposed on the used of private property and how do you justify them? I am currently attempting to build permaculture farm in Monroe County using alternative building methods and ecologically balanced designs. I seem to be hindered at every step by prohibitive building codes and inflexible regulations. How does Monroe County justify stifling this innovation?

    Corporate greed ? Monroe Co. Is a bout to pass a Communist planing $ zoning MASTER PLAIN ! That will turn Monroe Co. In to a COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP! They are taking away our property rights & our American FREEDOM. Everything about Bloomington & Monroe Co. Is going to be a COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. They will run our lives by controlling everything, our property & business. They will dictate where we live & who we live with. Right now you cant grow stuff in your own garden with out a permit & its illegal to sale it, the farmers market is not open for ever one to sale, only a few spacial people can sale there. People cant live out in the county any more, except in little over crowed areas. We will be little more than slave to the commie pinheads & your think corporate is the problem??? Johnny F Baker
