LAKE CLAY CONSERVATION PROJECT

Thank you for your support of this project. The project was reviewed by FDEP BOARD MEMBERS on June 16, 2017 in Tallahassee and was not approved for further consideration for funding. 

The Town of Lake Placid is greatful for their consideration of the project.   They have blessed Highlands County and our immediate area with the preservation of many properties.

For a general review of the projects strengths and weaknesses in comparison to Florida Forever goals a report can be downloaded at this link.

With the same sense of community that inspired the Town of Lake Placid's beautification program through Keep Lake Placid Beautiful, wherein graceful majestic palms were placed swaying over the town's US 27 corridor, the town is seeking your support for a project that will beautify, protect, conserve and last for generations.

If you have ever appreciated the beauty of the US 27 Lake Clay overlook from US 27, you will want to consider joining the petition or having your organization support by resolution, the Town of Lake Placid efforts to have FDEP consider purchasing this property under the Forever Florida Program.  

Lake Placid Town Council supported this project at their March Council meeting by passing a RESOLUTION OF SUPPORT.   The project is scheduled for presentation to the Florida Forever Program in Tallahassee on June 16th, 2017 for consideration. 

How can you help?   A petition of project support will be available at Town Hall for signatures.   If you have an organization, please consider adopting a resolution of support for the project.
