UDB

Many in the community are shocked at the recent 11-1 vote to expand the Urban Development Boundary which will allow for expanding our foot print further west yet. See this Miami Herald article for a basic write-up, but many questions need be answered more thoroughly.
More land allows developers to develop, which stimulates the economy. But developing west of the UDB encroaches on important natural infrastructure which stabilizes the affects of weather.
Most commissioners voted for this expansion. Whose interest did they have in mind?

  1. This is not only surprising, but disturbing. I won't even begin to speculate whose interest the Commission had in mind when voting for this, but it certainly wasn't the best interest of the community or the environment.
