Some people may fear that any ordinances governing development will cause businesses to avoid the county, but this concern seems unlikely tor several reasons. First, none of the present proposals makes any unreasonable demands for protecting Summers County's environment, public health and safety--and a new business and its employees would benefit from these protections as much as anyone. In the current state of public awareness, areas with more effective environmental safeguards may actually appear more attractive than areas where such civic issues are ignored.
