Grandfathered

Palm Beach County has taken yet another step back from their strict invasive plant policy (See previous blog entries here & here), as reported in the Sun-Sentinel. Under pressure from homeowners, the county commission voted Tuesday to exempt properties developed prior to 1986 from the law, which calls for the removal of nine invasive plant species. If those homes happen to be near an environmentally sensitive area, the plants do have to be removed, but the county will pay for it. For another take on the story, see this article from the Palm Beach Post.
