Fresh from the Fl. Sportsman site! More $MC LIES!!
SMC Study Flawed
Do manatee zones increase property value? No, according to an article in the November issue of Citizens For Florida’s Waterways. Brevard County Property Appraiser Jim Ford said the study published by Save the Manatee Club that claimed higher values for manatee zones in Broward County had several major problems.
"Two of three test models showed manatee zones had a negative impact on value," Ford stresses. "Housing values declined around highly restrictive manatee zones. Data itself was also suspect. For example, a 1,020 square-foot home was said to have more than five bedrooms and four baths. The SMC report ignored standard research procedures in order to produce favorable results."
We should not be surprised. SMC propaganda rarely hinges on scientifically verified facts or figures.
How these $MC people get away with all these LIES is beyond me! Not only that, but when they SUE the FL. State and US Fed. gov'ts and OUR tax dollars are spent trying to defend these BS lawsuits!
