In 2005, Florida passed S.B. 360 without much fanfare outside of planning circles. The new legislation puts teeth into the landmark 1975 Florida Local Government Comprehensive Planning Act, requiring local governments to demonstrate school and water concurrency and mandating financial feasibility studies for comp. plan amendments. It also provides specific guidelines for what must be included in Comp. Plans.
Florida has long been recognized for its progressive planning policies. The state is also a darling of the NRA with some of the most lenient gun control laws in the nation. Where else could there be broad public support for both guns and planning?
Anyone else find Florida's eccentric politics interesting?
