Weary Shoreline

Everyone loves a good waterfront view, but most of us have probably never stopped to think about what price local ecosystems pay for waterfront development.

As the Maryland General Assembly meets to debate new, stricter regulations on Chesapeake Bay waterfront development, MPT will air a riveting new program that examines Maryland’s Critical Area Law. Weary Shoreline, airing Wednesday, February 27 at 9 p.m., explores how Maryland’s Critical Area Law—enacted in 1984 to preserve sensitive Chesapeake Bay shoreline by limiting growth—has instead fostered development, lawlessness and community animus through its complexity and ambiguity.

The program is featured on today's Baltimore Sun’s Bay & Environment Blog. Read all about it here.
