Add your support to the “No Roads to Ruin” Coalition… click here to lend your voice to a statewide coalition opposing the three toll roads – including the Southwest-Central Florida Connector, extending from Collier County to Polk County — being proposed to destroy large swaths of Florida’s last remaining rural lands, pollute waterways, and threaten endangered wildlife including the iconic Florida panther.
If completed as proposed, 330 miles of toll roads could be constructed by 2030. Road building alone will immediately destroy more than 52,800 acres of undeveloped areas and promote unsustainable sprawl, destroying hundreds of thousands of additional acres.
Your voice is needed to help stop this misguided plan!
