Florida Hometown Democracy Gaining Ground

October 20th, 2008 by flanews

Supporters of a controversial plan to limit development say theyve got enough support to get their amendment on the 2010 ballot. The Florida Hometown Democracy amendment would give voters the power to approve or deny city and county land-use changes. Supporters of the amendment say they have more than 611,000 signatures needed to place Hometown Democracy on the 2010 ballot. Spokesman for the plan John Hedrick said the amendment would give more power to the people.

Citizen in that city or in that county depending on who proposed the amendment is going to be able to vote on it in an election and see if they agree with what the governments done. This will definitely give the people the final say so on the decisions in the community, said Hedrick.

Opponents of the plan say the group doesnt have enough signatures for the 2010 ballot. The number of required signatures is based on the number of people who voted in the last presidential election and is expected to increase significantly after November 4th.
