Say NO to SMR\'s routes for Major Transmission Line

141 Signatures Goal: 250

We the undersigned SUPPORT FPL\'s preferred route for the Bobwhite-Manatee Major Transmission Line and OPPOSE the alternate routes proposed by Schroeder-Manatee Ranch (SMR). SMR wants to put this 230-kv High Voltage Transmission Line with 100-foot tall concrete poles next to existing homes in eastern Sarasota and Manatee Counties. Florida Power and Light chose a route that has the least impact on existing residents and their quality of life, health, and property values and on the environment, including the critical habitat of Gum Slough. SMR\'s alternate #1 would run the transmission line along Verna and Fruitville Roads. SMR\'s other alternate would run the transmission line next to the Gum Slough Preserve, threatening this environmentally sensitive area, and next to existing homes in and aroung Bern Creek Ranches and on Fruitville Road. SMR wants the line to run near our existing homes and away from SMR\'s future development - which development will be served by the transmision line. We believe that EXISTING RESIDENTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN SMR\'S FUTURE DEVELOPMENT AND PROFITS.
