Orange County Commissioner Emily Bonilla Opposes Land Grab Bill “HB883”

ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN NEWS) –  Orange County District 5 Commissioner Emily Bonilla is a longtime champion against over development in the Lake Pickett community and opposes a land grab bill know as Florida House Bill 883.
 Statement by Commissioner Emily Bonilla on Florida House Bill 883
Today, Commissioner Bonilla urged State Representatives in Tallahassee to vote “no” on Florida House Bill 883 and protect what the people in Orange County have been fighting so hard to protect:
“They are slipping into an HB bill to make anything within 3 miles of UCF “urban”, which will include the Lake Pickett developments area. They are using State Legislators as a way to get around the Administrative Law Judge recommendation to the Governor and Cabinet that the development is INCONSISTENT because it is an “urban” development in a “rural” area according to our Comprehensive Land Use Plan. “ 
The two main points HB 883 include are:
  • Every 10 years – an initiative or referendum to create a rural boundary or urban development boundary must be voted on during a general election.
  • The planned development of land within 3 miles of a state university campus will be classified as urban service area or within an urban development boundary and may not be classified as rural land. 
HB 883 was tabled today but can come before House Representatives later this week.
Commissioner Bonilla’s election campaign was built on opposing the Lake Pickett development, known as the Grow, and she is scheduled to speak in front of the Governor and Cabinet Meeting in Tallahassee on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.
