Dan, how this one came about was because several waterfront property owners in the area have travel trailers sitting on them.

The people on the other side of the road, in other words not directly on the waterfront itself, got their noses out of joint because the trailers spoiled their view.

Never mind that a waterfront lot runs into the vicinity of $300,000.00 plus with nothing on it. The lots across the road are $150,000 less.

I'm having a bit of a hard time digesting this one, because the lower priced lots rise up quickly from the lake and they can very easily see over every trailer that is there.

But you are also right in that if someone challenges the law it likely will not stand up. Even the area director says that it's a really grey area. I just hope that nobody ever bothers to be so inconsiderate as to complain about any other properties. If they are that excited about it, buy the waterfront lot right in front of them.

Exactly, Keith! The NIMBY crowd are always ready to complain, but put up the money to ensure it doesn't happen? " Oh look! It's snowing in August."
My next door neighbour is an exception. There was an empty lot on the other side of them; he bought it and left it as a sort of park.
Now that he's taking some Cedars down, you should hear the whining from 'other' neighbours.
I'm thrilled to bits; he gave me a cord of free D. fir firewood! (That's $250 value)

Sounds like a bribe to me.

Actually, our village's Visitors' Bureau created our "little library". Located on the Erie Canal, all season long we have a steady flow of boaters tying up overnight or for the weekend. Our "little library" is right in the middle of the major docking area. Welcome to Baldwinsville, NY, folks! And do take a book or leave one with which you are done reading!

Nicely crafted book nook, Paul. Very clever design; as Stick would say, 'Kudos' to the folks at the Baldwin Visitors Bureau!
