It cost money to create new, viable water solutions, so it's easier to just tell the people who are already here to use less water.

I do get a kick out of the names of developments though.
The developers WANT it?

Are they building all these residences to stand empty?

Nobody's buying them?

What makes America great, and different than around the world is our PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS.

Private property OWNERSHIP is what keeps us from being Cuba, just for starters.

What has hurt Florida as opposed to say, Texas is...this nonsense with growth restrictions, planning boards and now fake conservation under Amendment One REQUIRING the politicians to pretend to "protect nature" with MANDATORY SPENDING. Thereby making the price of the remaining property even HIGHER and unaffordable.

Florida and no state deserves to put over 50% of the PUBLIC LAND in the hands of corrupt politicians.

I'd much rather see FAMILIES being able to AFFORD entry level housing, create family formations and stabilize society encouraging responsibility and pride.

One of our local high schools in Sebastian has cows next door. Sweet. Awww.

I'd rather see families with their kids able to walk to school, thanks.

LOL agro-business is so evil.

Especially those rotten citrus farmers in Indian River County.

Quote:
The Indian River Citrus District’s premium crop has been, and will continue to be, grapefruit. Currently, the District raises 70% of the total grapefruit crop grown in the State of Florida. Three out of every four grapefruit that leave the State of Florida fresh come from this District. Exports continue to be of major importance to the seedless grapefruit picture. Approximately 14 million cartons of “Indian River” fruit were exported during the 2006-2007 season. Once market for the Indian River Citrus District is the traditional northeastern United States. Traditionally 8 to 10 million cartons have been shipped there from the Indian River. The most important market, in terms of the number of cartons shipped, is the country of Japan. The Indian River Citrus District accounts for over 95 percent of all of the Florida fruit shipped there. Each year approximately 11 million cartons make the voyage across the vast Pacific to the quality-conscious Japanese buyers and consumers. Europe continues to rank third. Here a number of countries import a total of 5 million cartons of Florida grapefruit annually. Historically, 80 percent of this grapefruit comes from the Indian River Citrus District. Other markets such as Eastern Europe and China are known as potential expansion markets for the Indian River grower. Indian River citrus is now shipped to 23 countries making it a global delicacy.

Welcome to the new azz backwards America where proudly creating products that the world needs, wants and enjoys is a bad thing.

If you don't like the laws that politicians impose, vote BETTER for more FREEDOMs ....NOT Amendment ONE to the State Constitution REQUIRING MANDATORY SPENDING with flowery ideological BS wording.

Dont worry about the residents use of water. Worry about the bottled water companies that take our water and sell it elsewhere.

water or fire-- you decide- but not like Hillsborough county who spent millions on a cement reservoir that is broken and can't fix or use- make a skateboard park out of it- We have water- and nature normally fixes it self- but we are an awfully wasteful creature and people will make money on air- so.
