Pause on land-use changes

State worries about changes to Miami’s land-use plans have prompted a review of at least a dozen pending measures. The city won’t be able to vote on any of them until early next year, and zoning changes that require altering land use are also halted. The Florida Department of Community Affairs objected to parts of the city’s proposed amendment to its comprehensive plan, said Ed George, department spokesman. City Manager Pete Hernandez said the planning advisory board, the zoning board and the city commission are prohibited from discussing planning and zoning requests that require land-use changes during the review.
