McIntosh Citizen Boards
Board of Adjustment (BOA):
Role: The Land Planning Agency's board acts as the Board of Adjustment. The board has two roles, administrative review and deeming special exceptions. Adminstrative review means the board hears and decides appeals where there may be an alleged error made by an administrative official. They also have the role of granting special exceptions to the codes.

Land Planning Agency (LPA):
- The LPA deals with Land Use and Codes. One task before the LPA is to update the town's comprehensive plan. Former LPA boards constructed the current land development codes.

Any one that has lived here or has just passed through has one lasting memory and that is how beautiful the trees are here, that’s what our committee is preserving." - Sean DowieWho:

Editor and Publisher:
I'm Cher From McIntosh, FL I'm a graduate student at the University of Florida working on a master's degree in Mass Communication. While I was finishing my undergrad degree in journalism last year, I reported on McIntosh, Fla. for an in-depth reporting class. I figured that the reporting and the public record files should go somewhere people can access them. Reporters don't report to keep the information they find to themselves. Some of that reporting is included here in a forum that allows response. McIntosh suffers because with no news coverage, the local government and the rumor mill have too much potential to run rampant over residents. I moved to McIntosh in the fall of 1999. My profile
