Quick Fact – Did you know the State regulates almost all changes to the landscape that affect surface water flows?

You have been told that the State of Florida does not protect wetlands.  That is simply not true!  The State regulates “almost all changes to the landscape that affect surface water flows“.

Did you know, even if a property contains no wetlands, it is still subject to State Wetlands Permitting if changes to the landscape will impact other properties?  This is more stringent than the proposed local ordinance and this State Wetlands Protection is already in place.

A yes vote on Referendum A will add additional layers of Government Regulation. If a Wakulla Wetlands Ordinance is adopted, it can only be changed by a unanimous vote of all County Commissions or by another referendum of Wakulla County Voters.

A NO vote on Referendum A will eliminate this threat.

    I knew that voting yes for Amendment A would be duplicating rules. It seems to me that any and all involvement by the County could only financially cost the County Tax Payers money and could result in involved time and effort for the County to respond to. We have many things that need attention in this County but sticking ourselves in issues that are already covered by State rules and regulation seems to be counterproductive to me. Everyone I know loves the Ecology and wants to be a good Citizen. Over regulating this issue does not help the issue.
