If you wanted to open a Bar but you seem to be somewhat close to a Church, did you know you have to be 500 feet or more away from their front door to your front door? That's a fact.
However, when it comes to chicken houses, currently you only have to be 100 feet away from any property line. After almost ten months of deliberation, meetings and public discussions, (get this) they've been able to expand that distance from 100 feet to 400 feet, WOW!
Now here's the most interesting part you're not hearing from your so called Main Stream Media. Did you know that not one Town representative has been to ANY of the meetings regarding the BIGGEST industry on the entire Eastern Shore!
Yeah, there are a ton of people out there screaming at the County Executive as well as County Council Members but you know what, it's NOT their fault. You see, YOU elect local Mayors, Town Managers and sorts to REPRESENT YOU and your community/municipality. If you happen to own a piece of land that sits next to a large parcel of land and someone buys it to open up chicken houses, well, they'll be 400 feet away from you with a landscaping buffer to separate the two properties, WOW!
Now you people understand this. Not one of your Town Representatives showed up to these public meetings and there's been a lot of them. I've talked to some of the County Council Members about this issues and they agree, the newly proposed legislation they'll be voting on next Tuesday is not perfect but it will stop any new applicants from getting away with what was on the books in the past and they can tweak things as time goes on.
When you elect a Mayor or Town Manager, know what the heck you are doing. STOP voting for lazy chicken sh!t people who don't take their position seriously because in this case every single one of them in Wicomico County failed you 100%. Every meeting on this matter should have been packed with your town representatives.
