Ariel Hartney started this petition to Board of Osceola County Commissioners

Allowing companies to destroy our natural areas, promoting uncontrolled growth and environmental destruction comes at too high a cost to the citizens of Osceola County. In the interest of promoting sustainability, we must impose higher environmental impact fees on construction projects, including toll road construction. We also demand that a full environmental impact assessment be performed by an independent third party before projects are submitted to the public for approval. Our air and water quality must be the priority in Osceola county and violators must be made to face public scrutiny and pay for monitoring and remediation efforts. Our natural areas are crucial to the well being of the citizens of this county and their loss will directly result in a loss of quality of life, reduction in air quality and increased temperatures. We demand that the BOCC act in the best interests of its citizens and not put industry first. The traditional mindset of promoting uncontrolled growth using finite resources is unsustainable and counter to the preservation of our natural resources.
