Apparently there's a new scheme afoot as reported on cruisersnet. Palm Beach has very quietly and suddenly gotten the Corps of Engineers to propose filling in most of Lake Worth
with fill and topping it off with sea grass (no anchoring
allowed) and that includes the next village over, which claims they had NO advance notice. Depths should be 2-6' over the sea grass, depending on who is asked.
From what's been said, it was "Here's the 30 day comment period, hope y'all like the view from under the steamroller" and they've figured out a way to get rid of all those pesky folks who want to anchor
and spoil the view of the lake.
I give 'em points for clever and sneaky, one a those rich folk musta found a good lawyer.
