The Tennessee Liberty Alliance will host an open forum on January 11, 2014 for Knoxville regional residents to learn more about the current ideas and implementations for the Knoxville region that are guided by Plan East Tennessee (PlanET) and the Knoxville/Knox County Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC).

We all desire a thriving and healthy community as we move into the future, and it should be no surprise that there are many different ideas being put forth as to how to get there. Come with a friend and discover the latest ideas and plans of the MPC and PlanET, and how they will affect you and your family for generations to come.

Join moderator David "Shyne" Thompson, MPC's TPO director, Jeff Welch, and other area leaders to discover the pertinent facts regarding this critical topic of "sustainability". Local topics, including Westland Cove, will be open for discussion.

Anyone going to these meetings, please

get well acquainted with ICLEI. Find out if you town or city is an ICLEI member (Google it) and if it is fight it.
ICLEI, or the International Council for Local Environmental Incentives, is how UN Agenda 21 policies are slipped into place at local level.
The site, Freedom Advocates, tells you everything you need to know about ICLEI and how to fight it.
People power has halted ICLEI in it's tracks in some towns, so it can be stopped.

Please, I beg of anyone going to these meetings

Read up on - and watch videos - re The Delphi Technique on creating consensus and how to avoid getting snared by it.

More than Delphi

The results of this meeting have already been decided. Trained facilitators will guide the discussion and limit topics. After the meeting, the input will be interpreted in a way that will "demonstrate" that the participants concluded they wanted exactly what the organizers' goals were. Those "results" are then used to lobby for the funding and legislation the organizers want.

In my community, The promoters misread me and tried to get me to be a facilitator. I was provided with two books. One was of the sort that would be put in local libraries about how the community was going to discuss what it wanted. The other shorter version of the same book said what would be decided at these meetings. One bullet point was that "commercial ventures would not be allowed in rural areas". Another was that "cadres would be established to promote local smart growth". That is how specific the goals of these planners are. In fact, an ecological organization was locally established with DNR and foundation funding to promote local plans.

This is pretty much what "sustainable development" buys into. http://www.hrea.org/index.php?base_id=166

Google " Best promotes public health, safety, morals, order, convenience, prosperity, and general welfare."
to see how original these plans are. This phrase shows up in plans all over the English speaking world because they are stuck into plans by hired planners. It's so odd that land use plans try to improve morals. I asked our planner how that phrase got into our local plan. He said he put it in as a "tool" but that we could remove it. He was unsure about the origin of that wording.
