You don't and probably never lived in and area that's dependant on tourism or a limited source of revenue.
I grew up on the Jersey shore in a community that depended heavily on summer/seasonal tourism. Any time this country had a recession or some natural disaster prevented people from going to the beach we suffered greatly. Property values would rise and fall like the tides, depending on how the year was going.
If the tourists didn't come we'd loose income, jobs, buisnesses would close, people would be layed off, prices would rise in an attempt to make a profit and the area would generally become depressed. One bad season would take two or more years to recover.
People like you who live in major cities, like Chicago, don't have those worries and don't understand the impact these regulations will have.

Iggy....Iggy....Iggy....If we look at Jeb Bush , and what he has cost Florida taxpayers it is HUGE compared to what the protective zones for the Manatees would do...

1...The International Medical Corporation fraud..cost to taxpayers (iggy) ..353 million

2....Or the 4.5 million loan he defaulted on that contributed to the collapse of the Florida S&L...Which cost taxpayers 285 million.

Not to mention the Oil and gas frauds , Real Estate fraud , Medicare fraud , HUD fraud....on and on and on...

You guys are fighting the wrong fight...While you are fighting for your boat speeds Jeb is raping your state..And YOU the taxpayer is picking up the bill for this pathetic excuse of a Gov.

If this kind of fraud doesn't hurt the state do you really think the "protective zones" will....?

I'm not getting on the Manatee issue...I can't say the STM has good intentions with everything they do...And it looks like Dean is fighting for both sides...so thats a plus for us all

I wish him luck!
Fact: Property is valued higher in non-restricted waterfronts.
Fact: Property value decreases after zoning!
Fact: An hour of Idleing is not attractive to the prospective waterfront home buyer!

Jon,
I can't really blame him, that is the ULTIMATE goal of the ECO-Radical groups is to move everybody off the coast and inland about 10 miles. BUT what he can do is get involved, if he is so inclined. Just send him to the websites I've listed here and he get all kinds of info. on how to HELP fight this B/S.

I swear sc, you are the proverbial antagonist!
"Right" is subjective...
Right for who?
