In the following press release from the Pacific Legal Foundation it discusses the practice of FORCED mitigation. What should be of interest to the people of Coos County is that the attorney involved in this important case was the same attorney who was going to represent the people of Coos County in the lawsuit against the USFWS, Mr. Anthony Francois.
Of course, the City Council of Bandon and two of the three County Commissioners, Mellissa Cribbins and John Sweet betrayed the people of Coos County when they decide not to stand up against the USFWS and defend the people of the Coquille Valley from the Bandon Marsh mosquito infestation.
In other words, the following story should be the Bandon marsh expansion story, but the citizens of Coos County can thank the spineless representatives on the County Board of Commissioners and the Bandon City Council for kowtowing to the feds. Now, the property owners in the county are at the mercy of these federal agencies…..Rob T.

San Juan County, Washington, requires shoreline property owners who want permission to build to dedicate large parts of their land as water quality buffers to filter pollutants that come from other parcels in the watershed. But the county uses an excessive one-size-fits-all formula that takes too much land, with no parcel-specific determination of how much area is needed to filter water that starts on the shoreline parcel, as opposed to serving the public purpose of filtering all of the neighbors’ water run-off.
PLF is representing the grassroots property rights organization Common Sense Alliance in asking the Supreme Court of the United States to require that San Juan County prove that its buffer ordinance takes no more property than is necessary to mitigate the building impacts of the property owners.
