The transition team for Florida's Gov.-elect is proposing to merge the state's growth management agency with the Department of Transportation to "streamline" regulatory reviews. I seriously doubt this proposal will happen. Nevertheless there are a number of underlying pro-growth themes which could be implemented in the near future:
-Weakening of Rule 9J-5
-Elimination of DRI State reviews
-Limiting the State's role in comp plan amendments
-Reduced environmental regulations
I'm curious to hear what's being discussed in planning departments throughout the state on this issue.
