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 in rural or coastal areas. In a municipality you have limited land and at the rate of growth our county is experiencing, why would a municipality give away control and management to a third party?
Municipal land should remain municipal land and any transfer of land, or management, should be voted on by the citizens of the community.
Fairhope City Council, in their endeavor to, EXECUTE, a Conservation Easement, without public input, is political corrupt. The council has shown on a regular basis their loyalty to developer Aurther Corte, this is just another example.

Political corruption is an accurate description of what is happening in Fairhope. Below are some posts from a couple of years ago. Spend 10 minutes and read them and you will see what a good ole boy deal
looks like and who the players are.
FREAKY FRIDAY – FRAUD
FREAKY FRIDAY – FRAUD | THE RIPP REPORT / BALDWIN COUNTY LEGAL EAGLE
FRAUD Webster’s Dictionary’s definition of fraud reads: “Deceit; trickery; cheating, intentional deception to cause a person to give up property or some lawful right. Something said to deceive; trick.
Councilman Brown and Burrell live next door to the triangle property, yet they refuse to recuse themselves from voting on the Conservation Easement. Instead they have been the biggest advocates of this un-armed robbery.

COFAIRHOPE: ATTENTION MAYOR AND COUNCIL Dear Mayor and Council please take your positions seriously and understand that a part of your responsibilities is to discipline yourselves.
Councilman Boone and Burrell stuck Fairhope citizens with wetlands while letting the developer off the hook. This dirty trick was at the last council meeting of the Can’t term and was the last item on the agenda. AGAIN they favor the developer over the community and hid the facts from the public.

In bed with the present council is Weeks Bay, Diana Brewer, who gets credit for this sneaky deal. Her track record speaks for itself, she is no friend of Fairhope.

It is so easy to see what they are doing. They are making a clandestine path to allow Corte to develop this land. While we cannot see on the other side of the smoke and mirrors they have set up in the name of a “Conservation Easement,” you can bet on the other side of the smoke and mirrors is Corte building more of his patio homes, homes by Truland and DR Horton, more apartments, and a shopping center.
Go ahead and call us conspiracy theorists. We have seen you guys work like rats in the darkened back rooms so much for so long, we just know you all are up to something that will benefit yourselves at the cost to the citizens.
These guys have been sneaky in what they are pulling off. If we, the citizens allow this to happen then we deserve this bunch.
Somebody must stop Corte buying the politicians at wholesale prices.
Of course the council is loyal to Corte. Corte gives some farm land for a courthouse, a road, and a cancer center and in turn makes the rest of his land much more valuable, takes a huge tax write off, and expects the county and the city to let him do whatever he wants because of his “charity.”
I was at the zoning meeting where he chastised us citizens because people in Atlanta had to wait two or three traffic light cycles to get through an intersection. Corte thinks we should have to tolerate this because he is greedy and feels he owns the town.
Corte you may own the council until we vote them out but you do not own us. We don’t owe you anything
The population of the entire Eastern Shore doesn’t care. They will allow the local governments to overbuild until the Eastern Shore looks like an overdeveloped wasteland.
Go ahead and sell your home and move to Atmore. The taxes are cheaper
Of course this Council will always favor the developers. The developers pay the council BIG money in campaign contributions. These contributions pay for the best Council money can buy!
When the voters of Baldwin ever wake up from the fairy tale they keep telling themselves then maybe the voters will see. Right now so many of the residents have just moved in from Mobile or other big areas and they are so happy just to be here. It is like they are in the Matrix and keep taking the blue pills.
If they ever wake up and see that their state delegation is voting in new taxes so that Baldwin is carrying the rest of the state, the local governments are owned by outside builders making big bucks to throw up cheap houses and then raising property taxes to pay for the overcrowded roads. Pretty soon the voters will be further taxed to upgrade the sewers because just paying spillage fines will get too frequent.
When this happens people will eventually wake up and see that this unsustainable pillaging has collapsed what was once our home. Then those responsible for the irresponsible growth will go somewhere else to ruin, just like the locusts they are.
