Re: “Pollution rules might be delayed” (TNT, 3-2).

Please educate me. I don’t understand why stricter run-off rules for developments should cost cities and counties more money.

The developers should put in the required controls and infrastructure (roads, drainage lines, plantings, school requirements, etc.) as part of their developments, new or redos. If they don’t, these municipalities need to rewrite their rules. How much can that cost?

    yeah, the housing market is not bad enough so let’s add on some regulations to make it worse……..typical

    The housing market is bad because the houses that have already been built aren’t selling. No matter how much regulation, or lack thereof, is placed on builders, that’s not going to change.
