We've scheduled an important meeting this Thursday, December 8 at 7:00 pm at the Palm Valley Community Center, 148 Canal Blvd. We'll be forming committees and discussing next steps, including fundraising plans. We want your input and ideas so we can be as effective as possible in defeating development at the Outpost.
This will be the first of our monthly meetings; we're anticipating county hearings in the near future.
We know how busy everyone is, so we will try to get this meeting done in an hour.
As always, an important reminder, if you haven't already done so....
- Write or call county officials.
- Write letters to editors.
- The usual $5 donation for bumper stickers will be reduced to just $1 for those who attend the meeting Thursday. If you can't make the meeting, order a bumper sticker. (Or two.) Let's show how many people want to save the Outpost from development. Choose from 5 great designs including the spoonbill above. Yard signs are also available at $25 apiece. Scroll down here to see them.
We're anticipating a hearing in early 2017, and we need to fight hard to keep Guana as pristine as it is now - with no habitat destruction or contamination of the lake from 77 proposed homes at the Outpost. Please spread the word to those who cherish the natural beauty of Guana and the wildlife it protects.
We hope to see you at the meeting December 8 at 7:00!

"...it is some of the most beautiful real estate in northeast Florida, completely natural. Guana is exactly like it was two hundred years ago, heavily wooded with tremendous oaks, hickories, magnolias, and pines."
- Herb Peyton (describing the 8,000-acre, heavily-wooded tract of Guana. Newboy, 1997.)
