Preserving "Pure Florida"
(The Island Vision Statement)
The County appointed Steering Committee hosted town hall meetings to arrive at a consensus vision of the Island's most important features and future priorities. It contains findings and recommendations for critical subjects from the environment to lifestyle and infrastructure. Much of the Vision Statement could have been written yesterday.
The Thornton Key-Palm Island-Knight Island-Don Pedro Island Community Plan
Weighing in at 69 pages, the TKPIKIDPI Community Plan isn't exactly a summer beach read. But the importance and relevance of this document makes it time well spent. With topics like development, green space, environmental quality (even iguanas!), navigation, beach renourishment, ferry service, roads, golf carts -- the list goes on and on -- there so much ground covered that there is little if anything left that has not been explored and addressed.
