Shoreline Protection

"A note from Michael Caccavo, attorney at law, Barre, VT, to our lakefront property owners:
I remind you that the new Shoreland Protection Act becomes law and will be in effect on Tuesday, July 1, 2014. Because everything prior is grandfathered, it might be a good idea for every property owner to document the state of the property with date stamped photos or a video. They should be sure to show the shoreline, the buildings and other structures, driveways, cleared areas and gardens, as well as the wooded areas of the lot and any recent cuttings . The new law has restrictions on expansion of buildings, drives and parking lots, lawn and cleared areas as well cutting in wooded areas. It could be important in the future to have documentation of how things were when the law went into effect.  
With the start date approaching, not only should people who want to cut get to work this weekend, everyone should get out there and document what they have now."
