You did it...
For those of us who love and fight for Florida’s springs, these are words we don’t get to say often enough.
We found out last week that thanks to overwhelming opposition, the developer has withdrawn the comprehensive plan amendment and zoning change needed to build the proposed Westgate Resort along the Rainbow River!
This victory is the result of months of work and synergy between the Florida Springs Council, Rainbow River Conservation, Inc., and you. It belongs to every single person who signed this petition.
The Florida Springs Council pulls together experts, lawyers, advocates, and funding from across the state and targets those resources at the biggest threats facing Florida’s springs. We don’t just fight to fight. We fight to win.
The Florida Springs Council dedicated tremendous staff time and resources to stopping the Westgate Rainbow River Resort. But many foundations will not support the kind of direct advocacy that we know, and just proved, works. If you would like to see the Florida Springs Council continue to win major victories like this one on behalf of Florida’s springs, please consider a donation to help us continue our advocacy work.
I know of no better investment in protecting Florida’s springs and rivers.
Thank you for all that you do for our springs.
