A group of Hillsborough County residents is trying to save cypress wetlands near Dale Mabry Highway from rezoning that could lead to development.
WMNF spoke with Lauren McFadden, a resident of Carrollwood-Northdale area.
“What they’re wanting to do in this wetland area is change the zoning to ‘commercial general.'”
“What the area is now is just over four areas of wetlands. … It’s considered a cypress dome.”
McFadden is worried about what would happen with excess rainwater if the wetlands are removed.
