The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has ruled recently that thousands of residences and other structures identified as being built within the hydroelectric project should be removed.

Man I hate the feds. What a cancer.
Another federal agency out of control! Defund asap.
FERC is about to be clobbered from three sides.
I am not impacted by this as I see it. I know a lot of your area is very effected. Is your place inside the FERC zone?
So, it sounds as if they have been doing fine for at least 30 years, producing electric power and enjoying the lake, but now that the hydroelectric company has had to apply for permission to continue doing what it’s been doing for the past 30 years, the government is moving the goal posts.
This is known as making law ex post facto. That has been considered a basic violation of justice ever since King John was forced to sign the Magna Carta. Only now it’s mostly done by regulation instead of the sword. But the sword is implied, of course.
Dig down, you’ll find a tree hugging obastard acolyte at the bottom of this. Some pinhead punk know nothing radical. I hate this government with a purple passion.
A FERC spokeswoman declined to comment to The Associated Press. Previously, the agency told The Kansas City Star in a written statement that FERCs role is to ensure that the licensee is following the terms of the license, and approve shoreline management plans. It is the responsibility of the licensee to carry out the terms and conditions of the license, including shoreline management plan.
(1) Return all land to its native state, except for the dachas of the ruling class.
(2) Eliminate 6.5-billion people by whatever means necessary.
Claire McCaskill is a Hussein cultist who should be fired next year!
I don't think so. I can pay for my home, retire and still owe a sizable yearly nut to bureaucratic totalitarians. How is that free?
Concur,..it’s Agenda 21.
I thought I had adjusted to the IBC. Now it turns out there are another 5 or so codes beyond the typical IMC, IFC, IPC, IEC, IBC, etc.
Now there also is the International Zoning Code, International Energy Code, International Performance Code, International Property Maintenance Code, and the all too ubiquitous International Wildland-Urban Interface Code.
Int’l Performance Code introduces the concept of “Intolerable Design”. IWUIC introduces to “code officials” authority to disconnect utility services without notice to either the occupant or the utility company if any of the codes are found to be violated.
What type of codes, one might ask.
Walls and fences in the front of all buildings may not exceed 3’ tall in the front and 6 ft on sides and rear. Any group of 5 or more parking spaces must have a 3.5’ wall between the parking and any street (go figure).
Home offices may not exceed 15% of bldg floor area and less than half of that space may be used for storage. Visitors must be made by appointment and no more than one at a time.
These are codes made in the US and England in a local liberal area with intentions to apply them internationally.
They are published with legalese such that a municipal government merely need assign an Ordinance Number, name of township, and date, vote on them and they are local law.
If you see them, reject them before it’s too late.
Whatever you folks do, don’t look at the corporation called Ameren that’s behind the effort to evict those residents. ...or the crooked real estate interests that sold the properties belonging to the dam project’s previous owner. Local governments and local businesses sometimes use the federal government to do their anti-competition bidding. All levels of government, including local, all political parties, and all kinds of big business: socialists, using government to steal from the little folks and prevent competition.
Try starving the beast.
Fourth Amendment? What’s that?
More Agenda 21
Where are those codes written in law? Just wondering...
Where are those codes written in law? Just wondering...would like to cite them....
More Agenda 21 in action!
Pinging the Agenda 21 List!
If you want to be on or off the list, please freep mail me. It is a relatively low volume list. Those of us who have been studying the issue have collected various articles and thread links on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:
They are doing so currently in central Arkansas - the Lake Maumelle watershed to be specific. The rights of private property owners will be restricted in the use of their land to conform with the land use plan. They are doing so under the guise of environmental protections and watershed protection, but it a thin veil of horse manure.
Google Lake Maumelle Watershed and you should get thousands of hits - both the liberal envirotard web stuffing of the ArkTimes, but also from Tea Pary groups who have been fighting the encroachment. An example of what it mandates if passed: 25% of your private lot must remain undisturbed, no sturctures over 2 stories tall, the height of fences is stipulated, etc. It is not about watershed protection as much as it is about removing your contol over private land that you own.
Well they have 12 more mos to make trouble all over the country and then as soon as we swear in Newt or Herman or even Perry the party is over for the EPA and all of these other rogue agencies. I am just counting the days.
Zoning laws are the favored means of control of local tyrants everywhere. The watermelon greens (green on the outside, red on the inside) have seen them as a way to institute detailed control at the state and federal level that would never be tolerated locally.
This is what is going on with Agenda 21 and numerous referendums and legislative systems around the country. In Arizona we surrendered a significant amount of local control over zoning to the State for just these sort of rules. It is taking property without compensation.
The forbidding of significant walls around a property (3 foot tall fences in front, no more than 6 foot in the back and sides), is to insure that the enforcement agents can see what is in your property to enforce the zoning codes.
Ok here is the silver lining if any in this. If the land is now worthless and cannot be sold that means its value is $0 so the taxes should be 0$ also!
Another step closer.
Thanks for the ping.
ask the folks at Nacimiento Lake how this will play out....
ask folks at Berreyessa .....
If you play with the Feds....you dance to their tune....
This is economic stimulus action for surveyors and appraisers in the affected location. The rest of us will just have to pay higher title insurance premiums.
Oh, forgot the biggest recipients of this stimulus action—the F’ing attorneys!
I think a great bumpersticker would be
SMASH THE WATERMELONS!
end environmental fascism!
Concerning your post. I'm optimistic, yet cautious. How many times have we put our faith in politicians and had them stab us in the back?
There is an untold story that could link the former P&Z Director who quit without notice, the approval of a new flood zone map and the sudden FERC demand to remove many homes, mostly along the Big Niangua past Bridal Cave (MM 7-8-9 etc.) The lake becomes more narrow in this section, which brings about the 670 zone, apparently.
No one knows where he went or why he quit so suddenly. I suspect there is a connection.
Clair McCackle may be the key to putting a stop to FERC. Blunt, sadly, has not taken much interest except to sign on Clair's bill prohibiting FERC’s actions.
The Lake of the Ozarks was built in 1929-1930.
You are welcome!
Generally they become local regulations at the county and municipal level, once those governing bodies vote them in,...which they are scripted to advocate.
Technically, federal government and major agencies now design and construct to International Building Code, and the 10 or so other adjunct codes all interlock together.
Reviewing how they are written, they follow the European model of codification, which tends to dictate the actual method of design calculations made during the design process, resulting in everything appearing to be ‘canned’ or off the shelf design.
Thanks, I do realize that...just wondering if you have a particular city/county you are talking about. Are you referencing ICLEI by any chance? I’m co-producer of a radio show, and we’ve been covering a lot of this Agenda 21 stuff...and want to talk with people who have gone thru it, or gotten OUT of it.... check out.... ISPYONSALEM.com
Thanks for the ping!
“Concerning your post. I’m optimistic, yet cautious. How many times have we put our faith in politicians and had them stab us in the back?”
Me too. I am hopeful that the GOP and a new president will take care of the problems. This is their last chance with us. If they fall down this time we will be very interested in a third party as I believe a lot of others will.
Yes. The article mentions 30 years as the age of many of the lakeshore cottages. But many of these hydro projects go back to FDR, or Hoover before him.
Lake of the Ozarks, MO) — Congresswomen Vicky Hartzler will be at the Lake of the Ozarks this week meeting with homeowners who are at risk of losing their homes. The meeting is Tuesday**
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission says some properties sit too close to the shoreline and within the boundary of the Bagnell Dam project.
Hartzler along with Senators Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill have all proposed legislation that would protect the rights of thousands of homeowners at the lake.
