In anticipation of the results of the Amendment 4 vote today, the city of Palmetto completed its 20-year comprehensive growth plan Monday night, the Bradenton Herald reports.

If Amendment 4 passes, it would require residents to vote to approve new comprehensive land-use plans as well as any changes made to existing plans.

The Palmetto plan, which had been under a two-year review process, was unanimously approved by the city commission.

The Herald reports,

β€œWe wanted to get as much done as we could before Amendment 4,” city attorney Mark Barnebey said, β€œbecause breaking this down into bite-sized portions, which could be referendum questions for individual votes, probably would have taken us several dozen (votes). From a procedural standpoint, it was important to get this done.”
