Growth Management in Legislature I: Bennett's DRI Bill

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune had this editorial today dinging the this DRI bill that's been working through the Senate. The bill would do a number of things that are problematic to most growth management advocates, espcially raising the DRI threshold for residential development in rural counties (where the plans, LDRs and staff are far more limited) where DRI review is considered the only way to get effective, integrated treatment of environmental and infrastructure issues.

This is one to follow during the waning weeks of the session, because if it gets cleaned up enough to get past the editorial board response and gets more traction, it could end up being a train for other "helpful" growth management legislation.
