The Threat...

Over the past 10 years, the County Commission has yielded to the development industry again and again.

Thousands of new homes now sit empty, depressing the entire real estate market. Many developments were started and now sit empty with the skeleton of roads running through them.


Large land owners have been lured in by the promise of a greater financial reward for building houses than growing citrus. In time, and without good growth management, our rural agricultural land will be transformed to housing and we will look like south Florida. This is starting up again, as the economy recovers. The by-products of this rampant growth are more water shortages, traffic, pollution, crime, gangs, drugs, rising taxes and housing costs, and diminished farmland, habitat and quality of life.


The Solution...

In a democracy, the best solutions to community problems come from its citizens. The IRNA brings organization and expression to such solutions. We are the strong, clear voice for citizens who oppose the South Floridazation of Indian River County.

As organized citizens, we have been and will continue to be a political force in local elections, endorsing those candidates who pledge to represent the interests of the vast majority of residents and their cherished lifestyle.

The IRNA will continue to monitor growth and development issues, presenting factual and in-depth information to the public and our elected officials
