Fallschase Questioned

By  | 

After a public hearing Tuesday night, Leon County commissioners will make a decision on whether to move forward with the Fallschase development.

Tuesday's hearing will review zoning changes to the area. However, the Apalachee Regional Planning Council is questioning the deal.

The council's executive director says the recent development agreement with Leon County is different from the adopted development order from the 1970s, so the council is asking the Department of Community Affairs whether the developer, AIG Baker, needs to amend the development order to be consistent with the agreement.

Bob Rackleff, Leon County Commissioner, says, "What it has said in this letter is that it doesn't think we've followed the law and wants the Department of Community Affairs to weigh in on this."

The attorney representing Fallschase could not talk on camera; he could only say that the agreement is legal.

The public hearing for the Fallschase development is scheduled for Tuesday night at 6 p.m. in the County Commission chambers.
