Line of Sight
When exiting the property, you drive down the long gravel easement and then stop in front of the main road. You have the choice to turn right or left. Looking to the right, you see the road gradually climbs uphill, and in about 350 feet it crests- you can't see any further. The newer laws have determined that you need 500 feet before that happens, not 350.
I was talking to my brother about it, and we were thinking maybe it would prohibit development. I considered stacking up my library books on decorating, gardening and goats, and returning them. A sad morning, indeed. However, I'm learning to step back and be more patient while waiting for information.
Because Dave took his friend out to the property, a friend who works in the field, and he said he's never seen a development not allowed to build because of an issue like this- and he's been in the field for almost 30 years.
Encouraged, I suggested that just in case, we can get around the issue by simply putting a sign at the end of the driveway that says "Right Turn Only!". Then we can just ignore the sign, and simply turn left whenever we please. For some reason, he didn't like my idea. Something about getting permits and doing things legally. Whatever.
