Stop Sugar Hill/Buy the Land Press Conferences
Wednesday, October 1st
5-5:30 pm at both locations:
In Ft. Myers: FDEP South District Office, 2295 Victoria Avenue, Ft. Myers, FL 33902
In Ft. Pierce: FDEP Branch Office, 337 N. U.S. Hwy 1, Ft. Pierce, FL 34952
Next week is the deadline for FDEP and SFWMD comments to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) on the Sugar Hill Sector Plan - the DEO process is such that denial is impossible without negative comments from the agencies.
Despite what you may have seen/heard from Hendry County, all of the U.S. Sugar property in the Sugar Hill Sector Plan is included in the contract to buy U.S. Sugar land for Everglades restoration and the protection of the estuaries. Some of that property is for restoration projects and the rest of it is for swapping to get the non-U.S. Sugar lands in the EAA needed to send clean water south. Check out the attached materials!
Join us to deliver a loud, clear message to FDEP, SFWMD and the Governor:
Stop the Harm
Buy the Land
Send Water South
Fund it Now
Save the Estuaries
Save the Everglades
For those who attend the press conference, we'll be meeting afterwards for free pizza!
Make sure you grab a sticker and meet us at Downtown House of Pizza at 1520 Hendry St, Fort Myers, FL 33901 directly after the press conference!
Please contact me for more information and to let us know if your organization would like to speak at the press conference.
