Stop the planned destruction of 120 acre wetland forest in West Miramar, FL
0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!
Florida has lost over 100,000 acres of wetlands in the last few years.
We are determined to save the wetlands in our neighborhood, more specifically the 120 acres of land located at the southwest corner of Bass Creek Road and SW 172 Avenue in Miramar. This area is teaming with threatened and endangered wildlife that must be protected.
Lennar Construction has filed an Application for Land Use Plan Amendment (#1502812) to develop 385 (modified from 537) single-family residential units on this land.
This proposed development will
- erase 120 acres of existing natural wildlife habitat and surrounding wetlands. This area is now home for dozens of threatened and endangered animals such as osprey, heron, key deer, turtles, and exotic plant-life.
- destroy a fragile wetland-forest eco-system that reduces green-house gasses, and is essential to preserving our drinking water,
- add over 1000 cars to our already congested and dangerous roadways and add further delays to the response time of our Emergency Responders
Sign this petition - - tell Mayor Wayne M. Messam and the City of Miramar Commissioners to reject proposed land use plan amendment #1502812, and convert this area into an environmentally “impact positive” nature preserve and education center. Please also make a comment about why it's important to you!
