Mosaic applied for expansion of phosphate mining into the Horse Creek area of Desoto County. Desoto County voted to deny Mosaic’s request for 14,000 agricultural areas to be rezoned for mining, but Mosaic is appealing. Water quality is one of Audubon’s and Everglades Coalitions top environmental priorities in 2019. Mediation on Mosaic’s Appeal of Re-zoning Denial is scheduled the 3rd of April at DeSoto Administration Building, 1st Floor Boardroom, 201 East Oak St., Arcadia, FL. Speaking at a hearing, may require attendance at a previous meeting and registration.
