Re: Pat Neal wins Harbor Sound wetland permit.
According to Mr. Neal, "The board's decision (to approve his wetland permit) proved the judge misunderstood how mitigation is done in Florida." Yeah, the judge didn't realize that in Florida, "mitigation" is done by making large political donations and having other developers in a position with the authority to approve the request.
That's how you "get 'er done" in Florida.
Don't be misled. "Mitigation" is just a feel-good, ease-the-conscience device for those people who destroy nature for their own ends.
Never miss a local story.
