Local citizens losing their voice on issues

The voice of the average citizen has just about been lost when it comes to local land use changes. Whether it’s a zoning or a permitting issue, it’s not as easy as it once was to have issues decided based on local concerns.

For example, right now a group of Sumter residents are trying to fight the permitting of the Fern Spring project in Sumterville that the Southwest Florida Water Management District permitted last month.
