Is the wise use
of our resources and health of our communities important to you?
Hunter Lake will destroy thousands of acres of beautiful bottom
land and some upland hardwood forests of Horse Creek and Brush Creek.
The best areas are comparable to Washington and Carpenter Parks
with white oak covered hillsides overlooking winding creeks.
There is no need to lose this valuable historic and natural area.
Cleaner, cheaper water is available from wells and gravel pits along
the Sangamon River.
The solution for Springfield Citizens is clear.
The Horse Creek Valley can be saved because research shows the lake
does not need to be built. Saving the land will eliminate Springfield's
open space deficit and provide expanded opportunities for recreation
and to visitors exploring the amazing legacy of our fair city.
