First reading of city’s new EAR plan a go

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Chiefland City Commission voted unanimously 4-0 at Monday night’s meeting to approve the city’s new comprehensive plan.

The plan, which was last updated in 2000 and addresses ordinances relating to land use, transportation, housing, infrastructure, economic development and intergovernmental coordination, to name a few, must still undergo a final reading.

 But in the meantime, it will be sent to the Florida Department of Community Affairs for approval.

Bruce Day, a representative from the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council—the organization providing planning services for the city—said the DCA will have about a 60-day review, which will give Chiefland officials time to further review the amendments to the plan.

Vice-Mayor Teresa Barron, the only commissioner to ask questions about the plan, expressed concern over a few of the amended items.

She said a few of the colors used to discern different areas within some of the comprehensive plan’s maps were hard to differentiate.

Day said it was probably due to a printing error.
