05.01.07 -- Workshop tonight
Tuesday, May 01, 2007
By CHER PHILLIPS
The McIntosh Town Council will hold a workshop tonight to discuss the historic ordinance and the tree ordinance.
In the April monthly meeting, the council decided they would hold a workshop to discuss changes to these two ordinances.
The Historic Ordinance is currently in a repeal process. The Land Planning Agency, a citizen board, recommended that the historic ordinance 151 that was passed last year be repealed and the old ordinance dating back to the 1990's be returned to law.
The council voted to have the LPA and the Historic Preservation Board meet together to hammer out an ordinance both parties could live with, but the joint meeting did not take place. Part of the reason was a lack of appropriate communication and sufficient notice.
The other ordinance under revision will be the Tree Ordinance. The Tree Committee has been trying to pass an updated ordinance for more than a year now. Last month, the ordinance was picked apart line by line in an LPA meeting. This revision was just another in a long series of revisions spurred by council members and citizen boards.

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
