Future Growth in Leon County and Tallahassee

How is growth for Tallahassee and Leon County being planned and implemented? How does the planning process work and how can citizens make their voices heard? Those questions and more will be discussed at the League of Women Voters of Tallahassee's Nov. 15 Hot Topic luncheon.

Presenters will be:

Diane Williams-Cox, a member of the Leon County Planning Commission. Williams-Cox, a onetime candidate for the Florida House of Representatives, is an accountability and compliance officer for the Voices for Florida Open Doors Outreach Network. She is active in many community and national organizations, including the newly formed Southside United Citizens Action Alliance. 

Pam Hall, a longtime advocate concerned with our community's land use and environmental policy and regulations and their impact. She is also a founder of 

Citizens United for Responsible Growth.

Michael (Mike) Brezin, president of the Betton Hills Neighborhood Association. He played a role in recent efforts to retain the Myers Park parcel as a park, to protect neighborhood interests under the revised Accessory Dwelling Unit ordinance, and in forming a coalition of in-town neighborhoods.
