McIntosh Mirror: Reflecting news in the Tosh

Want to impact your community? Many of McIntosh's citizen boards have open seats and a council at a loss as to how to fill them.

Light-up McIntosh December 15

Light-up McIntosh will begin at the Civic Center at 6:30 p.m. The event will host Santa Clause and an area choir from six local churches will sing.

McIntosh Citizen Boards and School Board

(I'm in the process of collecting this information. Details as they come in.)

McIntosh Citizen Boards

Board of Adjustment (BOA):

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.


The BOA meets when necessary. Meeting agendas will be posted at the Town Hall and meetings will be held in the Civic Center.

Code Enforcement Board:

The Code Enforcement Board


When: First Thursday of the month

Historic Preservation Board:

The Historic Preservation Board makes determinations about certificates of appropriateness for McIntosh's Historic District.


June Glass
Tammy Flagg

When: Meetings are posted at the town office.

Land Planning Agency (LPA):

"I think the LPA is important because it deals with other people's property and how our town will be in the future." - Charlsie Stott



Tree Committee:

Role: Handles permits for cutting and trimming protected trees
"The purpose of the Tree committee is to preserve the natural beauty of McIntosh by making sure we have a well established and nurtured Tree Canopy that provides an abundance of shade and memories for years to come. 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 Dowie

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

About This Blog

The primary purpose of this blog is to accurately reflect what happens in town public meetings and dispel rumors. I record the meetings and make them available for download. One of the goals of this blog is to offer residents a place to voice opinions. The comments, views and opinions expressed there are not necessarily those of the editor.

"A Popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance: And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives." - James Madison, 1822

"Personal journalism is also not a new invention. People have been stirring the pot since before the nation’s founding; one of the most prominent in America’s early history was Ben Franklin, whose Pennsylvania Gazette was civic-minded and occasionally controversial." - Dan Gillmor, 2004, We the Media
