Open letter to future council: Save our heritage

I am deeply concerned about the destruction of the County’s heritage sites as well as development that does nothing to enhance and complement its past. The protection and preservation of our historical areas are crucial to PECs economic growth as a place to live and work as well as a tourist destination. Our history creates […]
