Petition Statement

Protect and preserve this natural area, and opposed the proposed South Avenue Retail project, the construction of BJ's and a gas station on the Graniteville “Swamp”/Salt Marsh and Forest, as well as to any other commercial use of that land.
There are currently 90 signatures. NEW goal - We need 100 signatures!

Petition Background

If the forests on the Eastern shoreline remained during Hurricane Sandy, they would have buffered the rising waters and perhaps there would not have been the kind of destruction we witnessed as well as the tragic loss of life. Proposed development of this land puts the surrounding community at risk of serious flooding, traffic, and pollution and endangers wildlife and makes economically vulnerable people responsible for picking up the pieces when harm is done.
