about south river federation

South River Federation submitted comments this week to the Department of Neighborhood and Environmental Programs in Annapolis regarding the Forest Stand Delineation for the proposed Crystal Springs Development .

The Federation has three concerns:

  • First, we are concerned that the 75 acres that was originally supposed to be placed in a conservation easement may be reduced to 64.52 acres.
  • Second, that the 75 acres of conserved land should not be used for storm water management. All stormwater ponds and catchment areas should be incorporated into the developed portion of the site.
  • Third, that the 15 acres of land that is to be reforested should not be reduced to 13 acres.

The Federation desires to provide an independent voice for the well being of Crab Creek and the South River. Click here to see the official letter that the Federation submitted.
