Meeting About Poe Springs in Gainesville


This is a critical meeting for protection of Poe Springs… Pls take time to call Alachua County Commissioners and let them know that high attendance events will definitely have enormous adverse affect on both the Spring and the Santa Fe River!  Think, just too many people in a confined area.

PLEASE CALL and tell them what you think 352 -264-6900  Alachua County Commissioners
Mike Byerly,  Paula Delaney, Rodney Long, Cynthia Chestnut & Lee Pinkoson

Ask them to imagine the pollution generated by the flocks at Ginnie Springs, garbage in river, urine stained trees, cigarette butts everywhere, trash on land and soil erosion…

Why must this be a MONEY MAKER ANYWAY??? Poe Springs itself is worthy of protection.

Byerly is solid proponent of protection as prob Delaney would be too, Long is a sell, prob good too. But calls will be vital….
