Va. Oyster Legislation Creating Waves

YORKTOWN, Va. (AP) — Legislation that could open much of Virginia’s shoreline to oyster farming has spawned a spat between two neighbors in York County.

Tim McCulloch’s beef with real estate magnate Greg Garrett involves Garrett’s plans to grow oysters in up to 1,530 cages around his $2.5 million mansion on the York River. That would make his operation one of the largest of its kind in Virginia.

The venture would be located inside a small cove that’s overlooked by McCullouch’s own $2.5 million mansion.

Republican Sen. Tommy Norment introduced SB1190 on behalf of Garrett, and it could open up Virginia’s shoreline to similar ventures.

The legislation is scheduled for a hearing in Richmond on Monday.
