Florida Musings: Citizen Groups' Standing in Jeopardy (submitted by Terrell Arline)

OK - here's a cross-blog link to a post by Terrell Arline on Mike Morell's Florida Musings site regarding two recent cases that seem (haven't read the orders yet) to seriously threaten the ability of non-profit corporations to challenge plan amendments under 163.3184. This is a big deal because these corporate forms are one of the critical ways that local citizens can actually afford to fight land use battles (not only by sometimes being tax deductible, but also by providing a way to aggregate funds to pay an attorney without anyone risking serious tax liability).

I'll post later this week about another threat to public participation in the planning process - a recent final order from DCA under which local government's now aren't subject to compliance review for their public participation programs (or failure to follow them when adopting amendments).
