Crucial Water District Vote Affecting Coral Springs and Parkland Residents on November 8 Ballot

Water districts like the Coral Springs Improvement District encourage residents to vote no to maintain the status quo.

As Election Day approaches, voters are faced with making their choice for commission, congress, senate, and governor. However, one measure on the ballot would effect proposed changes to water districts in Coral Springs and Parkland.

Rep. Dan Daley (D-Coral Springs), who previously worked with the late Rep. Kristen Jacobs on the ballot measures, took them over once joining her in the State Legislature.
“When I got to the House, I took over the effort, and we’ve had support from Coral Springs City Commission and Parkland City Commission in passing these local bills,” he said.
Daley believes the current voting mechanism doesn’t provide accountability or transparency, with votes for the Board coming from the largest landowners, not through a standard majority.
If the measure is approved, members of the District Board of Supervisors would be elected by a majority vote of all qualified electors of the district instead of just landowners for four years terms, with staggering elections every two years beginning in November 2024.

“The proposed measure will increase transparency and accountability with a simple majority vote of all residents of the district,” said Daley.

The measures impact the Coral Springs Improvement District, Pine Tree Water Control District, and Sunshine Water Control District.
North Springs Improvement District will be on the ballot issue in 2024.
