Florida, Land of Beauty and Nature!

Its about the marine life, the nested birds, and the various land creatures that scurry around on the few remaining sandy parcels that fringe our waterways in Madeira Beach.

  • Imagine the automobile exhaust polluting our air as rows and rows of cars sit waiting for traffic to move.
  • How will emergency vehicles make it around that area and across the bridge in what will be gridlock?

It appears that the planners have pushed to the ultimate limit… leaving no room for error.

Raise your hand and be counted among those who care about a thoughtful city plan…  And those who care about our fragile and beautiful environment!
