UPDATE- 8/9/14 – Well pumps are now in place, as well as the main electrical service for three-phase power.  A prescribed burn has been performed to clear unnecessary underbrush and begin a natural growth cycle.  Initial enclosure design is complete and has been discussed with regulatory agencies.  The maintenance trailer is in place and a platform has been built for access from our pole barn.  Our first reefer has been obtained and is currently in storage.  Additional gopher tortoise fencing has been replaced and silt fence repair completed.  The location for the initial enclosure is being cleared and prepped for the first enclosure to go up.  Permitting is in process for the disbursement of electrical service as well the initial enclosure construction.

4/30/14 –  The CFAR at Forever Florida Site Plan has been approved by Osceola County. That completed our Planning stage. Phase 1 has begun. Gopher tortoises on site have been relocated and silt fencing is in place to prevent them from returning.  Wells have been drilled and capped, as well as an old well no longer in use.  The roads have been laid in–crushed concrete and tamped down.  Conduit has been placed under the roads for easy future access.  We will still need plumbing support later when the well pumps are put in place and to run to the various parts of the facility.  The maintenance barn is in place, ready to start working on enclosure design and construction.

Fund raising is complete for Phase 1 and a new campaign is starting for funding of Phase 2, Enclosure Construction.
