itizens for Yellow Creek (CYC) is a group of concerned citizens who acknowledge the need to preserve and protect the Yellow Creek Watershed, but who oppose the formation of the Yellow Creek Watershed Conservancy District as the best way to accomplish that goal.
Our Mission is to:
-Educate residents and business owners within the Yellow Creek Watershed how the establishment of a conservancy district would negatively affect them;
-Explain alternatives to the creation of a conservancy district;
-Make the case that establishment of a conservancy district would add an unaccountable, unelected bureaucracy that would burden all property owners within the watershed;
- clarify how a conservancy district would serve the interest of a few property owners at the expense of every other property owner within the watershed; and
-Defeat the establishment of a watershed conservancy district by all means available to CYC.
ellow Creek is a treasured tributary of the Cuyahoga River, recognized for its high-water quality and its natural beauty. Citizens for Yellow Creek think it imperative to preserve, protect and even enhance the Yellow Creek and all 31 square miles of its watershed; however, we object to and oppose the formation of a watershed conservancy district – essentially an unelected, autonomous layer of bureaucracy that could be created with a petition from just 500 residents – as the best way to do that.
We object to the ability of the few (with just 500 signatures) to impact the lives of so many (thousands of property owners) in the nine affected communities without local control, community consent or legal jurisdiction. Those nine communities include parts of Akron, Cuyahoga Falls, Bath Township, Richfield Village, Richfield Township, Fairlawn, Copley, Sharon and Granger.
Educate yourself on the impacts of a watershed conservancy district on ALL of the residents in that district; check out pages 11-12 in the December issue of the Bath Country Journal:
