Coral Bay worries about watershed

The pace of growth and development in Coral Bay has prompted its community association to produce a two-page brochure about the importance of protecting the environment.  "Runoff, erosion, sedimentation and bad land use" threaten the area, according to the document, available online at http://www.coralbaycommunitycouncil.org/.  The Coral Bay Community Council meeting will hear about the matter from volunteer vision coordinator Terry Mahr.  The group’s president, Sharon Coldren, said she hopes the brochure will persuade land owners to insist "that builders follow good procedures" such as clearing only for the footprint of a house and preserving trees and leaving guts undisturbed.
