People are reacting to the county’s proposal to build more homes in Isle of Wight — and most of the reactions are skeptical.

The ISLE 2040 plan, or Inventive Solutions for a Livable Environment, was presented at a special Board of Supervisors meeting Sept. 19.

The plan calls for increased density in the corridors along U.S. Highway 17 and U.S. Highway 258 south of Smithfield, and adding another area for development along Nike Park Road.
