I'm not sure what a lengthy ordinance of 39 pages will do to enhance life in Blanco. Most of what Ms. Conn says in her letters makes sense.
People come to a town for all kinds of reasons. We have been here over 11 years and have owned property in the Blanco area for 13 years. We fell in love with the somewhat uncontrolled atmosphere here after visiting Fredericksburg, Wimberley, and Dripping Springs and noting that the first was just too touristy, and in the other two would be fine if we hadn't already had enough of living in big city suburbs.
I don't think we are barbarians. We are reasonably well-educated and had successful careers elsewhere; but the pickup truck, cold beer, good music, and true Texas flavor of Blanco were and are very attractive to us.
Regarding night skies: While our view of the skies is a little less clear than it was when I visited the area as a 24-year-old in the early 1960s, most of the light pollution (other than on football nights, which are OK), clearly comes from the migrations of the two big cities, to our South and East, and their suburbs. That will get a little worse as time goes on, even though both of those cities take steps to mitigate it, and we accept that.
Too many pages, don't overdo it!
