Leaders Discuss New Policies to Protect Wakulla Springs

Published Apr 10, 2008
Local leaders are working against the clock to come up with stricter rules to help protect Wakulla Springs. They have to submit their new policies to the state by this summer. On Thursday they tried to hash it all out.

Commissioners and city planners came up with some ideas for new policies, things like creating a Springs Protection Zone. It would make rules a lot tighter for those who want to develop in the area and possibly for those who already live here.

City and county planners have a July deadline with the state to submit those policies. They didn't vote on anything on Thursday, but they did agree that they're at least on the right track. They hope to also introduce the ideas to Gadsden and Jefferson County leaders as well.
