Royal Poinciana zoning plan may go to voters | www.palmbeachdailynews.com

Perhaps this is how they are getting around HB 537. That is the state legislation that put the kabosh on attempts to change provisions of a comprehensive plan or development order. The same state legislation made "null and void" the yes vote on height limitations in March of this year here in Lake Worth. This addresses the point, I think.

The Neighborhood Alliance and the Palm Beach Preservation Alliance began the petition drive Nov. 13, the day the Town Council voted to adopt zoning and comprehensive plan amendments to pass the zoning measure. Under town law, zoning changes such as the PUD-5 do not take effect for 30 days after passage to allow time for a petition drive for a voter referendum.-before-voters.
