The image, like a handful of properties in River Falls, shows an existing building on the stream bank which has been in place long before the current zoning and buffer requirements were put into place. It is highly unlikely that new development built directly on the bank of any river would meet with approval in any community. That said, zoning can be used to encourage the types of development that can enhance the community and strike a balance between protecting the river buffer and providing access and proximity to the resource, consistent with local, regional and state regulation.
