Letter: Sunrise Grove amendment would ensure protection of tree canopy on Martin Grade » tcpalm.com Mobile:
My long-term dream has been to protect the tree canopy on Martin Grade. A while back, Rich Campbell wrote a column about the proposed Sunrise Grove comprehensive plan amendment, which is intended to create an agricultural-technological employment center in western Palm City just south of Tradition. Campbell asked whether it would help or hurt our efforts.
I met with Sunrise Grove representatives and they agreed that the scenic beauty of the Martin Grade is an irreplaceable asset to our community. We brainstormed ways they could help protect the trees and, following on those discussions, I submitted proposed changes to the Sunrise Grove amendment to the county.
