Local Winkler Rd neighbors scored a victory Tuesday night as county comissioners voted to continue the ban on all blasting on Winkler Rd due to neighbors concerns and past experiences.
This is a victory for existing residents, and a setback for developers as it will add extra cost to new construction, cost that must be passed on to consumers. In the end, some projects may not be built if the cost is too high.
However, blasting county-wide is allowed as long as contractors follow certain rules. See related article and video at NBC-2.
