Residents of Boone’s now defunct ETJ have formed the WCLC, and that is now a chapter of the BREDL. Members of the Watauga Citizens for Local Control are concerned that the absence of restrictions will lead to pollution. They wish to organize a presentation for the public hearing the Watauga County Commissioners shall hold to find out what new county zoning rules should replace those of the old ETJ. The last acronym stands for the Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League. It was formed in 1984 to keep nuclear waste out of the area.
