ABOUT US >

FOLKs is a group of concerned residents who want to preserve the low-density community character of the Lower Keys. We oppose adding 1300 more ROGOs (building allocations) because they undermine 30+ years of science-based and court-approved growth limitations for the Keys. Hurricane evacuation becomes more dangerous and everyday traffic unbearable. Our fragile environment cannot stand more development: the marine ecosystem is continuing to deteriorate even without additional development. We say NO to 1300 more ROGOs!
