Seven50 Opposition History

In December 2012, the Board of County Commissioners of Indian River County voted to withdraw from the Seven50 plan.

There is an ever-increasing government overreach in Indian River County.

It was presented by “The Southeast Florida Regional Sustainable Communities HUD Grant Initiative.” Under their freshly-minted new name of “Seven50,” meaning, the control of seven Florida counties within 50 years, they planned to encompass an area stretching from Indian River County all the way to Key West. What this group learned at their meeting caused a small citizen uprising. Read the rest of this entry
