Todd Powell gives us some insight into the Envision Alachua project developing right here in our community. The true team approach in the planning stage of this project is part of the reason why the project has had such a positive impact. “The birth of Envision Alachua also goes back to 2005 when Plum Creek sold a 658-acre property (now known as Phifer Flatwoods Preserve) through a public auction.”
Since then, diverse mixes of developers from all facets of our community have spent countless hours devoting their time to improving our community and economy. “Protecting and optimizing water resources are a priority in the Envision Alachua plan” along with other initiatives such as land conservation, wildlife conservation, maintaining agriculture and sustainable forest management just to name a few. It hasn’t been all roses; there has been some resistance, but Envision Alachua maintains they will continue to move forward with complete transparency and are eager to listen and respond to the feedback from our community in hopes of improving our community for the better.
