More Wetland Gangstas!

I wonder if Peter B. Groves will have more luck than Charles.  Maybe that will depend on whether the Friends take an interest in him.  Has Mr. Groves seen the quote from Randy Gaylord?

County Prosecuting Attorney Randy Gaylord said islanders can contact the county to view a "wetland inventory map" and if a wetland is shown on your property, and you disagree, it's up to you to disprove it.

Dear Ms. Biletnikoff:

I have reviewed the New County Map on "Possible Wetlands." We OWN the parcel at 1920 White Point Road, SJI. The proposed "wetland" you show there at the NE part of our property is a man made pond, 15 feet deep. (pic encl). In fact all the small blips of green on White Point are man made ponds save one blip which is a septic drain field. (Can't figure that one out, because it is dry ground unless it is pouring rain.)

I don't know who SGH is, but this person, who drew the map, has made every man made pond I know of into a "Possible Wetland."

Pick the correct answer Ms. Biletnikoff:

1) We just do what we are told to do!

2) We have no training in reading aerials.

3) We want to get every inch of land we can under the County's new jurisdictions and we will use any method we can gin up to do so.

Unfortunately, I can't speak for the others who have no idea this aggressive mapping is going on, BUT THERE ARE NO WETLANDS ON OUR PROPERTY, PLEASE REMOVE THIS DESIGNATION FROM OUR LAND.

Thank you for your attention to this matter. We look forward to seeing that this "wetland" designation has been removed.
