Our mission is to protect our environment and natural resources, thereby preserving quality of life in Citrus County. We do this by monitoring local government, researching issues and disseminating relevant information through our members and delegates. We are all citizen volunteers.
The latest update for the extension of Suncoast Parkway 3 to continue north from SR44 up through Citrus County to parallel I-75 north past Jacksonville has been put on the back burner. FDOT will be concentrating on relieving traffic on I-75 by widening I-75 and making other improvements.

A “white paper” generated by Dan Hilliard and published by Kings Bay Springs Alliance, Inc. - for your quick consumption.
Kings Bay Springs Alliance, Inc., is asking that if you agree that addressing the damage done by turf fertilizer to our water systems is in order, and that the following would generally be in addition to the current ordinance, please email the county commissioner of your choice - or all five of them - and tell them it’s time to toughen up our residential fertilizer ordinance to save our water systems! (Note: agriculture is exempt)
1. Prohibit sales of turf fertilizer June thru September inclusive.
2. Prohibit the application of turf fertilizers during the same time frame with possible exception of golf courses.
3. Prohibit the use of turf fertilizers within 100' of any storm water drainage conveyance which will transmit runoff directly into any water body.
4. Prohibit the application of fast release turf fertilizer on any property adjacent to water bodies unless the shoreline is protected by swales to control runoff.
5. Incorporate a concurrent Florida Friendly Landscape ordinance which is consistent with state guidance and promotes the conversion of landscaping of residential and business properties for a specified but limited time (10 years?) by use of property tax incentives. The ordinance should be incorporated into the Citrus County LDC.
