BUD Petition filed

On behalf of the Group Two plaintiffs, we filed a petition on Thursday, November 29, 2007, requesting an administrative hearing on the Dept. of Community Affairs proposed final order approving Monroe County's proposed ordinance 35-2007, which would amend the Beneficial Use Determination (BUD) process by adding several years, and thousands of dollars, to the process (which the US Supreme Court has held we must go through before filing a taking suit), and by eliminating any administrative compensation remedy (not that the County has ever offered to pay fair market value, anyway). Until this process ends, the existing BUD ordinance will stay in effect. A copy of the petition will be posted later today on
