'Mixed Use' Is Mixing Up A Florida County
The problem boils down to this: mixed use allows developers to do things that the Citrus County comprehensive plan does not. Mixed use became a part of the land development code in 1990; in 1997, it was taken out of the county's comprehensive plan. When Circuit Judge Jack Springstead overruled the County Commission's February 2002 approval of the Halls River Retreat development, he said the comprehensive plan must trump all other considerations.
