Collier commissioners oppose Amendment 4 » Naples Daily News

NAPLES — Collier County joined Marco Island and Naples as among the local governments showing their opposition to the Florida Hometown Democracy amendment going before voters in November.

The Board of Collier County Commissioners unanimously expressed their opposition to Amendment 4, known as the Hometown Democracy amendment, while adopting other legislative priorities on Tuesday afternoon.

If approved by voters statewide on Nov. 2, Amendment 4 will require referendums on many land-use issues by requiring all changes to a local government’s comprehensive plan be put to a vote.

Bill Poteet, vice president of the Naples Area Board of Realtors, requested commissioners take the formal position to show voters how important a “no” vote will be.

Marco Island City Council took the same stance at the recommendation of island realtors and businesses earlier this October.

Commentary: Great Madness. A couple of union leader wannabe’s. Land use attorney on the Ave Maria School of Law faculty is ‘processy’ – what about little citizen against big developer and big government? Andy-controlling-the-citizen type. Brother Wayne, el chain of command … ever heard of it. Wayne would sly, “Skip local government and jump on the amendment process.” No gear, more beer. No innovation, more regulation, and more money, too.
