Permanent protection and management of 2,000 acres of targeted forests, fields, and wetlands will simultaneously benefit the Panama City Crayfish (PCC) and will remove regulation, provide flood protection for the community, and filter water that feeds our bay.
1) Removes the PCC from the U.S. Endangered Species Act (ESA) which removes ESA permitting for development;
2) Provides recreational space for communities, which are compatible with residential areas, future residential and commercial development, and increases property values; and
3) Provides flood relief through stormwater management, which helps keep our yards dry, bay clean, and fisheries healthy.
