Florida Anti-Growth Amendment to Put Land Use Decisions in Voter's Hands

Amendment 4 would require city and county comprehensive plans to go in front of the voters to be approved. It has been approved for a 2010 ballot.

A spokesperson for the backers of the amendment, which they have dubbed "Hometown Democracy," had this to say, in the Orlando Sentinel:

"The voters are just saying we want to have the say-so if you want to go ahead with projects in a way that's different than permitted under the comprehensive plan. If they want to do it according to the comprehensive plan, they won't have any problem whatsoever."
