Chesapeake Bay's health is tied to local government strategies
My favorite watchdog group, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, is keeping track of Virginia municipal governments' plans to reduce polluting run-off into my favorite bay. Click here to keep track.
I'm particularly interested in how James City County plans to "continue to promote low impact design/better site design approaches to land development in the County." If it's anything like the mini-buffer of trees and nonpermeable parking surface that they permitted in the new Courthouse Commons shopping center, I am underwhelmed.
