The year before we moved to Florida, between hurricanes we came for a visit to see - is this where we wanted to retire. During our visit we drove down a beautiful street in the center of a town - I said "If we move to Florida, I want to live here" I did not know at the time "here" is Tarpon Springs.

Board of Directors
Friends of the Anclote River - The Concerned Citizens of Tarpon Springs/ Friends of the Anclote River is a non-partisan group of citizens who have joined together to focus on selected local issues and use their collective voice and actions to help preserve the unique identity, small town character and cultural heritage of their community by ensuring future development adheres to these goals while providing adequate protection for the environment, natural resources and wildlife.
The organization was started by a group of citizens who were dedicated to preserving the health and environmental beauty of the Anclote River by minimizing and limiting new development and all sources of pollution to the river while protecting the fish and wildlife that inhabit it.

What is black propaganda? The term black propaganda is reserved for those materials planted by the United States but in such as way that it seems to be the product or even an internal document of the target group. In other words, "black propaganda" is nothing less than a form of intellectual and political subversion. Its purpose is to attribute actions to a source, other than the true one.
About RiverWatch Homes and Community. RiverWatch has 159 homes. Of which they were once all beautiful, loved and lived in. In recent years RiverWatch saw a bit of a decline, but through community and ADHERENCE of our covenants, and deed restrictions. If something is not right, we work to change things to make it so, AS a Community.
This page will eventually contain links to things such as how to's, lawn, boats, fishing, pics of the community, classified section, whatever the community wants ... maybe a forum?

Community Refferals ~ Is there a vendor you like? One you don't?

Ideas such as: Lawn Care
What else would YOU like to see?
Twice a year (coinciding with the fall and spring clean-up) our community hosts a community wide garage / yard sale.
For many, a lush, green lawn is a symbol of proud homeownership as well as a pleasant place on which to relax or play. Lawns, however, require a lot of water--water which, depending where you live, may be in short supply.
This page is a running list of the main things to be looked at when driving through the neighborhood each month. You may get a letter for some "other kind" of violation, but the thing we are looking at for all is "this" ... if the following month "that" has not been "taken care of" you WILL get a letter.
PLEASE do not say "I wasn't warned" :-) YAY!!!
Tarpon Springs Florida HARD FREEZE WARNING - december 13 2010 and december 14 2010
On January 18-19, 2004 in a twelve hour City Commission meeting the City of Tarpon Springs, despite the opposition from the largest citizen’s turnout in the history of Tampa Bay, voted in favor of the proposal by Wal-Mart to build a super center on the banks of the Anclote River. This meeting was attended by over 400 citizens who feel this development is unnecessary and will have a negative impact on the Anclote river, the small town businesses, the small town ambiance, and history of this Greek community which attracts tourists daily.
