Concerned Citizens for Tarpon Springs, Inc. to Hold Find Another Site Music Benefit
On January 18-19, 2004 in a twelve-hour City Commission meeting the City of Tarpon Springs, despite the opposition from the largest citizen's turnout in the history of Tampa Bay, voted in favor of the proposal by Wal-Mart to build a super center on the banks of the Anclote River. This meeting was attended by over 400 citizens who feel this development is unnecessary and will have a negative impact on the Anclote River, the small town businesses, the small town ambiance, and history of this Greek community which attracts tourists daily.
The battle has continued on and January 19, 2008 was the three-year anniversary. However, many of these hearings/meetings require legal assistance and expert witnesses. Therefore, on Saturday, April 19, 2008, from 2 to 8 p.m., there will be a six-hour Music Benefit to help with these fees. It will be held at The Zone, 121 E. Tarpon Avenue, Tarpon Springs. This will be a non-smoking environment for the benefit. For further information call: 727-367-3592. Why not come out and celebrate EARTH DAY week by protecting our wetlands?
