The environment is very important to the residents of the Mayo Peninsula. We care about our water quality and the wildlife that lives in and around it. We care about the sustainability of the shorelines of our beaches. We want to see these protected and cherished through many generations. Below you will find the major environmental concerns of the Neighbors of the Mayo Peninsula.
Increased impervious surfaces will worsen polluted stormwater runoff.
Development will accelerate loss of forests/wetlands and may provide inadequate mitigation.
Maintain existing wetlands, wildlife habitat, and connectivity with surrounding natural areas. Ensure that the county submits required reports on resident, threatened, and endangered wildlife in the state-defined Critical Areas of the Mayo Peninsula.
