Re: Best Homes w/Slip in the Chesapeake Bay Area
It is almost impossible to build or cut trees within 1,000 feet of the Bay. The fine is 5k per tree! In order to reduce run-off, there are strict limits on how much of a lot can be covered with impermeable surfaces. The State wants you to build tall homes with small footprints.
