Petition to Put “Protection” Back in Lake County’s Rural Protection Areas
Currently Lake County and Florida state development rules have a loophole! Lake County has several Rural areas defined as "Rural Protection Areas". These areas limit development to 1 home every 5 acres. However, cities in Lake County can annex parcels that are currently in Rural Protection Areas then change the density to whatever the particular city code allows - often several per acre.
