It is a joke that this is even being considered. Upcoming rally...

Hopefully they channel some of that energy to saving Black Hammock. It's going to be the thing developed if this deal doesn't go through.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

I don't want to see either developed.  There should be a way to get both. 

Development-wise, the Durbin land will be less expensive to develop and subsequently sell than the Black Hammock land will, and that is likely the biggest business incentive.

Make sure to sign the petition too: https://www.change.org/p/rick-scott-and-danny-becton-save-julington-durbin-preserve

This would establish a dangerous precedent that would potentially open up all of our conservation lands to future development.  Also, the Black Hammock Island property will be very hard to develop, anyway.  Lawsuits previously stopped a proposed development.

The Black Hammock property will *not* be hard to develop and there’s no reason to think it’s not imminent if this deal fails. Claiming otherwise is wishful thinking. The property is also zoned for septic tanks - on an island in the middle of preserve land. Everyone who opposes this deal needs to step up to save Black Hammock or it’s virtually certain that we’ll lose it, especially if the environmental community keeps their heads in the sand.

I would say the developer will have a wee bit more difficulty selling Black Hammock vs Julington.

Everyone's favorite Ex-Mayor is in the fold. So it must be a great deal for Jax. And, money has nothing to do with it.
