January 7th 2016 General Meeting

Commissioner Mike Byerly on Plum Creek’s huge development plan for east Alachua County

Plum Creek Real Estate Investment Trust continues to pursue extensive new development rights on its rural timberlands in eastern Alachua County. After its initial application to alter the county’s Comprehensive Plan received a strong recommendation of DENIAL from Alachua County staff, Plum Creek withdrew their application and submitted a revised application.

County staff has again recommended DENIAL, on the same bases – the “new plan” is basically the same as the old plan.

The application now goes to the County Commission on February 16th and February 18th. Commissioners need to know that YOU care about this issue. We need everyone there for these meetings, even if you do not speak.

Commissioner Byerly will bring you up-to-date on the issue at our January 7th, 2016 General Meeting at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 4225 NW 34th St, Gainesville, FL 32605. Please join us!
