Comments on My January 2022 Memo to the Mayor regarding Split Oak Forest

In one of the most bipartisan, clear-cut decisions of November 2020, 86% agreed to protect Split Oak Forest with a Charter Amendment. I wrote a memo to the Mayor and Commissioners as early as January 2022 asking them to rescind their application which would allow destruction of at least 160 acres of public lands.  It’s time we take a step towards transparency and listen to our residents. The voters decisively stood for Split Oak Forest. Orange County needs to rescind their application ahead of April 20, 2022. The private entities pushing for this toll road may donate their own land for it, but the taxpayers said, “Go around.”
