Fellow Residents,

§ Write yourCountyCommissionersand Planning And Zoning Board Members. Their email addresses are below:

§ Commissioners -bcc1jjohns@sjcfl.us; bcc2jsmith@sjcfl.us; bcc3pwaldron@sjcfl.us; bccd4@sjcfl.us; bcc5hdean@sjcfl.us

§ Even if you have written them before,do it again and again. Ifwe don’t, they’ll think we have given up. Silence means agreement.

Buc’ee’s:   Some of our neighbors have been working to gather info about Buc-ee’s to provide you with information pertaining to the new proposed Buc-ee’s coming the exit of International Golf Parkway / World Golf Village.  See jpeg below.  and provided a link to a petition.  Click here if you would like to sign it.

Keep in mind that there are also neighbors who feel this could be an asset to our area.

I am keeping neutral, just trying to help get the word out so folks can make a decision for their own sake.
