A petition circulating online is calling for an end to a proposal to put an RV park near The Hamilton Pool Preserve.

“Our kids have grown up here. Our daughter had birthday parties down at Hamilton pool,” said Stagecoach Ranch resident Bob Adkins.

People who live nearby believe the quality of water and wildlife at Hamilton Pool is in jeopardy. Two developers are eyeing a 10-acre piece of land above the entrance to the pool.

“The property is about 500, 600 feet from Hamilton Creek which then flows down into Hamilton Pool, and septic systems have been known to fail in this area,” said Stagecoach Ranch resident Tom Hegemier. “So we’re just concerned that something could happen, a spill that gets into Hamilton Pool pretty easily, and then it could actually pollute Hamilton Pool.”
