Rally Today Against Waterfront Sprawl

SprawlCHESAPEAKEBAYPROGRAMA reminder to all who love the Bay:  Please show up at 7 p.m. today (Tuesday, Sept. 17) for a rally against sprawl that pollutes the Chesapeake.  Location: Kent Island High School, ADDRESS CORRECTION: 900 Love Point Road in Stevensville, Maryland.  Bring signs and raise your voice against the ill-conceived Four Seasons  project during the meeting of the Queen Anne’s County Commission.

Say “No!” to waterfront overdevelopment!  Say “Yes” to a healthy Chesapeake and smart planning!

The proposed Four Seasons development would plop more than 1,000 new homes on top of farmland and forests beside a Bay tributary, increasing runoff pollution into the Bay and traffic congestion on Kent Island. 

At a time when rising sea levels and flooding are of growing concerns, this project would put a new exurb of houses right in the path of future storm surges.
