I am so glad that we will be preserving the wetlands!

We need to protect our wetlands, but sometimes the protection is rather ridiculous. It seems that if you have enough money the rules do not apply. We all see the many housing developments, etc that end up being built in swamps. You can buy your way out of regulations, but if you are a small individual owning a property, you can not build on it or sell it because of the current wetland rules, unless you want to spend mega bucks. There are a number of lots on Little Rock Lake that are over 200x170 and can't be built on because they have wet spots. What lake area doesn't have wet lands especially when the points were filled in and created in the l960's.

Take a look at that project now. They let the developer go in an remove all the wetlands and the developer stopped working. He is now looking at jail time.
