Hometown Democracy Debate
Hometown Democracy was the brainchild of a Palm Beach woman and is backed by several environmental groups. It would place any changes to a city's or county's land use development plans up for a vote.
Petition drives against hometown democracy are being directed by two groups and are backed by a variety of business groups.
Both groups have until the end of January to collect enough signatures to put their referenda up for a vote next year.
