Reporting: Manatee County'Great Debate' Frames Broad Impact of Florida's Amendment 4

The Great Debate over Florida's "Hometown Democracy" Amendment 4 at the Manatee County Central Library here last night lent a frame to the broad impact of the Nov. 2 initiative to require any changes to a county master plan to be approved by voters. Sponsored by The American Reporter and the Federation of Manatee County Community Associations, the debate between four non-incumbent candidates seeking three seats on the county's Board of Commissioners included seven debate "statements" touching on the amendment's potential impact on housing, banking, development, and even adoption of flood-prone evacuation zones.
