Apologies for the omission

Since it's important for the meaning to come across, I'll appreciate your publishing the following, that includes about seventeen omitted words from the letter about the county's traffic concurrency map published June 10.
   "What (County Executive Sims' representative) really said was that the carefully-thought-out rural-density zoning categories adopted via the county's comprehensive planning process are a huge mistake. But instead of correcting that mistake and disallowing land divisions by amending the comprehensive plan and changing the zoning map after public notice and public hearings, the county merely nullifies adopted zoning by adopting an obscure traffic map."
   P.S. At the County Council's June 10 meeting, the council did adopt the traffic concurrency map.
