Stop Springwater Sprawl is a movement to ensure that a beautiful, rural township home to an international wetland, vast county forests and prime agricultural land isn’t lost to unnecessary sprawl. Sprawl hurts us all and specifically threatens:
- tax dollars of hard working families and individuals
- prime farmland that is already being lost at a staggering rate
- green spaces, fresh water sources and environmentally sensitive lands
- small community nature and rural living
