NBC-2: Cape Coral leaders back Now or Neverglades. August 29, 2016. Written by Jesse Pagan.
CAPE CORAL- Cape Coral city leaders are now backing the Now or Neverglades Declaration, pushing for changes in the way water is released from Lake Okeechobee.
The declaration asks that Amendment One money be used to buy the land that is south of the lake. This land would then be used to store and treat the freshwater released from the lake, keeping it away from the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries.
