This is the first time in the Coalition’s history they are opposing a proposed city project for Reedy Creek.
Earilier this week we ran an article about a the proposed Reedy Creek Restoration. At the time I was unaware of the Reedy Creek Coalition’s opinion on the matter. Today the Coalition has posted an article that goes into the details of their opposition and why for the first time in their history they are opposing a proposed city project for Reedy Creek.
Reason 1: Lack of Data Collection for Proper Choice of Stream Restoration Site
Reason 2: Proposed Site is “High Risk”
Reason 3: Address Root Causes of Stream Degradation First: Watershed Restoration before Stream Restoration
Reason 4: Proposed Site is “Low Benefit”
Reason 5: Destruction of Tree Canopy and Park Property
