The Real Deal Miami

New bill would help rural developers

April 04, 2008 01:51PM

The state Senate Committee on Agriculture has reversed a decision it
made last week, now favoring a revision of Florida’s “agricultural
enclave law,” that would allow for increased development on farms
surrounded by non-farm land. If passed, it would allow developers to
build on rural land up to the average density of all developments in a
three mile radius. Currently, one can build only up to the density of
adjacent parcels.
