GOLD MINE FOR SALE

The Fairhope Conservation Easement is in limbo while Weeks Bay and the city council, does damage control. Let me make it clear that there is nothing wrong with conservation easements. The Fairhope Conservation Easement that is proposed is a political football being thrown around by the City Council. It is an excuse by special interests, developers, that want the property out of the control of the city. The property in question is prime property in the Fairhope municipal city limits, that cost us 13 million.

BALDWIN COUNTY MUNICIPAL ALERT – MUNICIPAL CONSERVATION EASEMENT

BALDWIN COUNTY MUNICIPAL ALERT – MUNICIPAL CONSERVATION EASEMENT | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE

In Fairhope, a conservation easement involving city property has become an issue for the entire county, all 14 municipalities. A conservation easement in a municipality is radically different than one…

Weeks Bay is now doing damage control due to the push back from Fairhope citizens, over 600. Today Weeks Bay had a lecture at the Graham Creek Nature Reserve. Invited were representatives of the 14 municipalities in Baldwin County. I could not make it but wish I were a fly on the wall. Weeks Bay is trying to convince municipalities in Baldwin county that they can manage municipal property better than the municipality.

If you actually believe that to be true than I have a great business opportunity in a Gold mine in Belize, that is a sure thing.

Think about the Fairhope City Council and the reason they insist that they make this decision, without public input. The Council has gone on record saying that they need to make the decision now because Fairhope cannot trust the elected politicians in the future to do the right thing. That is their reason. Think how damn stupid a position that is for an elected official to have.

The council wishes to give away the rights and control of 106 acres on one side of town while they look at buying 40 acres on the other side of town?????

DELIBERATE DISTORTION OR TWISTING OF MEANING

The Fairhope City Council and Weeks Bay are trying to tell the general public that a Conservation Easement does not mean Weeks Bay owns the property. True they also have no lease or title to the land.

It is all about planning and a land use plan that works with a comprehensive plan, not a conservation easement. The council wants the cart before the horse. They do not want to wait because they know no plan is going to give away 106 acres of municipal property.

DISPOSAL

The President of the Fairhope City Council has held on to that title for over 7 years. This is extremely rare, most often Councils share the position of Council President with other Council members.

I was encouraged to see both Skip Jones and John Manelos step up and tell Jack Burrell, publicly, that this cannot be done just because ‘Jack says so’. Many others have protested but this Council is notorious for shooting down anyone that protests its agenda. Jones and Manelos both are far more respected than any of this Council, which puts them out of Burrell’s bullying reach, so I am hoping that we are safe for the moment. Meantime, let’s hope that Fairhope voters remember that Diana Brewer and Jack Burrell have brought us this awesome deal to give away the triangle property…….surely, it must be a Godsend for Fairhope taxpayers, right? Brewer was justly voted off the CC for demanding that the Fly Creek Apartments be approved…..I am betting big that she and Jack and Corte have BIG plans for the triangle property. Most people probably would believe that putting it into a conservancy would save it from development; it won’t. Check out Mattie Kelly’s will in Destin, Florida and what happened to the property that she had put into a conservancy to be protected forever! It did not end up in the way that she had planned. Don’t trust… Read more »

Amen

Yep the conservation easement is just a back foot way to let Corte or the developers that OWN this council to get it and develop it
I know what happened in Destin. This council may think we are idiots but we KNOW that they are dishonest and crooked

Rewind

Trust Jack…..

Trust Jack…to sell out Fairhope to Corte

Burrell and the rest of the council are so transparent

Boone, Burrell, and Brown are EVIL. They must be defeated next election. They have shown that they’ve sold their souls to any developer for the best price
They don’t care about Fairhope. They care only about their bank account.
