Below is a letter sent to the Gainesville City Commission.
The letter is in response to the commission considering an amendment to their residency restriction that would roll back the restriction from 2500 to the State’s 1000 square feet.
FAC supports this Amendment for two reasons; 1000 feet is better than 2500 feet, and there would be a provision in the ordinance that would not make it retroactive, so that people required to register before the enactment of the restriction would not be subject to it (no ex post facto issue).
If you would like to submit your comments to the City Commission, you can find their contact information here:
Remember, FAC SUPPORTS (is in favor of) this amendment.
