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!

CURRENT ISSUE:

Water quality in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary is not improving, despite the millions spent on centralized sewers.  The National Marine Sanctuary, and the Mayors and council members of Marathon, Key West and Islamorada need to know what you think. Please email them directly, or send your email to us and we will take it to the Sanctuary meeting and copy the Mayors and Council members (this helps us so we can tally them and print them out and present an impressive stack of responses). 

And please come to the Sanctuary meeting NOV 13 in Marathon City Hall at 9 am. There’s a brief presentation about wastewater treatment plants from George Garrett, Marathon Planning Director, and public comment starts right afterwards.
