We weren't there, but according to someone tonight, the Inter-Neighborhood Council unanimously (with one abstention) backed an emergency-resolution at a special meeting this evening on the contentious Jordan Lake boundary issue.
The resolution, introduced by Fairfield resident and South Durham environment/development activist Melissa Rooney, calls for elected officials to reject a developer-funded survey of the site in favor of an independent, government-funded study instead. The meat of the resolution:
THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Interneighborhood Council of Durham urges the Durham Board of County Commissioners and the Durham City Council to reject the developer-financed survey, and. if necessary, to conduct an impartial government-directed study of the Jordan Lake pool height, perhaps in collaboration with the several other units of government (e.g. Orange and Chatham counties) that also have regulatory responsibility for the watershed and that also protect the public interest;
The item will come to a head at Monday's Board of County Commissioners meeting, when officials are set to vote in what will likely be a 3-2 vote either way -- with newly-elected commissioner Brenda Howerton remaining publicly, and inscrutably, on the fence.
