PALM BEACH GARDENS FLORIDA RESIDENTS - WE NEED YOUR VOICE!!! Revoke Permits for West Side of Briger Tract. Say No to 331 unnecessary homes. Preserve the last remaining intact land you have left!!!! 

The Palm Beach County Taxpayers have been tricked into paying over 700 million dollars to Scripps Biotech to develop on one of the last largest remaining pine flat woods east of 95 in Palm Beach County - The Briger Tract!

We were tricked into thinking that it would bring in more jobs and good for our economy, but once again all we are seeing is more strip malls, more residential homes (while so many foreclosed homes sit empty) and the newest bombshell United Technologies (Pratt Whitney) - known for military weapons will be setting up shop in our backyard!

Call your City Commission and tell them to Preserve the Briger for an educational resource for the 13 surrounding schools! Preserve the Briger to help with rising CO2, and for water retainment during storms. 

100 acres have already been destroyed, there are 500 acres left! Palm Beach Gardens Residents- WE NEED YOUR VOICE!!!!

Since the destruction we have watched a known annual Bald Eagle nest get destroyed, dead bobcats in the road (because there is no where else to go), and more developers pockets getting fatter and fatter with your TAX DOLLARS!

When will enough be enough?

4. Call your City Commission tell them to preserve the west side of the Briger Tract, and to stop the destruction of the east side and make it an educational resource. As of now they are planning to leave NO preserves...they need to go back to the drawing board and protect some of this land if not all of it!
