A group in Florida called Florida Hometown Democracy is proposing an amendment to the State Constitution that would allow registered voters (versus elected officials) to approve or disapprove changes to their community's comprehensive land use plan.

An online poll shows the following results:
"A grass-roots movement wants Florida law changed so residents would control development in their communities by voting on all zoning changes. Your opinion?"
(71.3%): A good idea. Elected officials have caved in to developers and made South Florida too crowded.
(28.7%): A bad idea. Zoning issues are complicated, and voters won't know enough to make good decisions.

Your thoughts???
