    Wait a minute, we're supposed to have plans? What do you mean plans? We have a Comprehensive Plan that has a very nice spot on the bookshelf that is really not any good, but you are implying that planners work to create other "plans" that we would use? This must be crazy talk! (Please note that the tone of this reply is meant to be very sarcastic; although the message that we don't do ANY long range planning is very accurate.)

    So in short, no.
    Much work remains to be done before we can announce our total failure to make any progress.

    As soon as the Department of Community Affairs figures out how to handle it, Comprehensive Plan Amendments in Florida are supposed to show that they are at least neutral. ie: do not increase VMT, etc.

    Government facilities (state, county and municipal) are supposed to be built to "green" standards.

    It's still very early in the game here, however so no experence yet.

    Our county does have a plan. I has action plans for municipalities, the business sector and the county.

    We have completed stage 5 (final stage) of the 'Cities for Climate Protection' system - http://www.environment.gov.au/settlements/local/ccp/

    We have moved on now to a 3% per annum, compounding, reduction for our enterprise and the City as a whole. Doesn't sound like much but that is definitely a stretch target.
