And how should a beautiful, ignorant stream of water know it heads for an early release - out across the desert, running toward the Gulf, below sea level, to murmur its lullaby, and see the Imperial Valley rise out of burning sand with cotton blossoms, wheat, watermelons, roses, how should it know?

~Carl Sandburg, Good Morning America, 1928
traffic_sm.jpgOur every day lives revolve around transportation choices and clogged roadways. The Sierra Club Central Florida Group supports transportation options that minimize dangerous carbon emissions and impacts to land, airspace and the waterways of Central Florida. Walking, bicycling and public transit alternatives minimize the consumption of limited resources such as fuel and reduce noise pollution.

The Central Florida Group will encourage land use patterns that minimize travel requirements to provide pedestrians, bicyclist and public transit use with adequate access to jobs, shopping, services and recreation. Rail systems are most effective in stimulating compact development patterns and corridors that reduce motor vehicle use and provide protection of public conservation lands, habitat diversity, and water resource protection. We will encourage the revitalization or retrofitting of existing communities to achieve these qualities and to enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors to Central Florida.
