ALACHUA COUNTY, FL - In January 2008, the Countywide Visioning and Planning Committee was reconvened to continue to provide a strong forum for dialogue concerning future growth and development in Alachua County. In April 2008, the Countywide Visioning and Planning Committee created a multi-jurisdictional task force to amend the Boundary Adjustment Act.
The Boundary Adjustment Act, Ch. 225 of the Alachua County Code, was established in 1990 and is a special act of the Florida Legislature which governs annexation in Alachua County.
The Countywide Visioning and Planning Committee has adopted recommendations for amending the Boundary Adjustment Act. These recommendations will be presented to the Legislative Delegation, for the purpose of introducing a special act to the Florida Legislature to modify the Boundary Adjustment Act.
The Legislative Delegation will be considering the proposed modifications at a public hearing to be held at the Thomas Center's Spanish Court (302 NE 6th Ave., Gainesville) on Wednesday, January 28, 2009 at 9 a.m.
