SSJ Endorses SAFEBOR


The Santa Fe River Bill of Rights (SAFEBOR) campaign aims to enact new legal safeguards for the Santa Fe River where it borders Alachua County. Campaign organizers and volunteers are poised to gather more than 18,000 petition signatures from registered Alachua County voters in the next six months in order to secure a spot on the November 2020 ballot to amend the Alachua County charter to give the river its own rights. If the ballot initiative is approved by Alachua County voters in the 2020 general election, the county’s home rule charter will be amended to recognize the right of the Santa Fe River to naturally exist and flourish as an ecosystem, and the river’s right to be free of activities or practices that infringe upon those rights.
