With Thrive 2055 beginning to gain momentum in the 16 County Area that includes SE Tennessee, NW Georgia, and NE Alabama, Citizens for Responsible Growth is hosting a town hall meeting to educate and inform affected citizens and elected officials of the "Dangers of Regionalism."
Mr. Don Casey, an expert on the importance of property rights, will speak on how comprehensive plans can affect one’s rights to own and manage their private property. Mr. Casey is a highly-sought-after property rights speaker, having recently returned from a presentation to the Australian Parliament.
Thrive 2055, with its stated objective of identifying regional values and goals, has hired consultants from outside the area to create a 40-year growth plan for 16 counties in three states, including Hamilton County. Mr. Casey will reveal just how the Thrive 2055 Plan will affect property rights as well as the future of the region.
There is no charge to attend the meeting and it will take place on Saturday, from 10 a.m.–12 p.m. at The Church on Main, 1601 Rossville Ave., Chattanooga, Tn. 37408, www.thechurchonmainstreet.com.
