“Permitting hell” for a little piece of heaven.

Each of us has either been there – or at least we’ve heard first-hand stories – of regulatory nonsense.  This one is a doozy.  Thank you to Martin Doyle at Property and Environment Research Center (PERC) for so eloquently articulating the permitting challenges that innovative landowners, Scott and Sandy Campbell of the Silvies Valley, Oregon faced while enhancing habitat by trying to build systems that mimic the natural hydrologic flow regime.  While “permitting hell” is nowhere a landowner should be, the Campbell’s should inspire other landowners to continue to be thoughtful and deliberate stewards of the natural resources on their property.
