Suncoast Chapter “POWW” Waterfront Preservation

Victory | May 03 2009

Coastal Preservation

The chapter was involved with the POWW Coalition (Preserve Our Wallets and Waterfront) to preserve both waterfront parks and habitat and taxpayer dollars from the Tampa Devils Rays' proposed development of an open-air stadium in downtown St. Petersburg. The area has now been protected as a designated city park.

Coastal Preservation

Beaches are a unique and dynamic landscape that should be protected for the future. The Surfrider Foundation is leading efforts at the state and local levels to protect our shorelines on every coast. Our efforts are focused on establishing appropriate setbacks for development, opposing shoreline structures, and placing coastal lands in public trust.
