Planning commission endorses moratorium

The Jackson County Planning Commission last night endorsed a moratorium on approval of subdivision plats imposed earlier by the Board of County Commissioners.

The Planning Commission, headed by T.E. Little of Marianna, took the “supportive” position after a lengthy discussion with planning experts about growth problems associated with large scale real estate development.

The moratorium, set at 120 days on the recommendation of County Commission Chairman M.A. Schack, who is an ex-officio member of the planning board, is designed to give the county sufficient time to come up with subdivision guidelines that would prevent the type of growth problems that have occurred all over South Florida. — Jackson County Floridan, Tuesday, Oct. 16, 1973
