The Highlands have a Plan

While the outcome seemed fairly predictable, the Highlands Council made an historic decision today voting 9-5 to create a Regional Master Plan. The Gannett report on the meeting says it took 7.5 hours and they approved half of the 16 proposed amendments. My memory is that took more like 7.5 years, or maybe a couple decades. But the coverage over the next few days will really say a lot about the compromises made by both sides and I look forward to trying to sum it up in just 2-3 paragraphs.
