At the end of the Rainbow

Published Jul. 8, 2007 Opinion
With 17,000 homesites already approved for development - some OK'd as far back as the 1960s - their fear is justified. With nitrate levels in the Rainbow River up 500 percent over the past 50 years, it's scientific fact that more isn't better for the Rainbow.

But allowing building on the slopes of Rainbow Springs is not how to develop. Allowing 17,000 homes to be built where they're unwanted is not how to develop. Keeping on keeping on, when we have endless examples of Florida development disasters to reference, is not how to develop.
