Environment

Environment:  Continue protecting the environment using the county’s stormwater ordinance which sets the standard for other jurisdictions along with supporting the Rural & Critical Lands Program.  However, some changes are needed.  Sections of the stormwater ordinance need rewriting to avoid confusion such as recent issues with impervious surface.  The Rural & Critical Lands ordinance should not require all lands be placed under conservation easement, e.g. those lands around the Marine Corps Air Station.  Rather they should remain on the tax roles for controlled economic growth.
