The Land O'Lakes Leadership Council and the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce had criticized the vision plan authorized by the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council for suggesting future buildings adhere to a style dubbed "Crackeresque". The style limited buildings to metal roofs, porches, columns and picket fences. Critics favored architectural consistency within individual developments, but not an overall standard for Land O'Lakes. "We're not keying on any one thing, that everybody's going to have a teepee and campfire on their property," said former Pascoe property appraiser Ted Williams. Supporters of the initial vision plan are talking compromise.
