Watch the Public Hearing That Defeated the Vacation Rental Rezoning
Watch the Public Hearing and 2 Advisory Committee Meetings:
December 8, 2020 Public Hearing
Board of County Commissioners Regular Meeting
The motion by John Tobia to proceed with rezoning changes died for lack of a second motion to approve. Over 100 Brevard County residents attended to show support for communities who did not want zoning amendments. The agenda item – H.2. – was moved with little notice to a later designation in the meeting agenda. Public speaking time for attendees was cut from 3 minutes to 2 minutes, with very little notice. Some meeting attendees gathered outside waiting for Public Comments were reportedly told the meeting had ended after the Commissioner vote was taken, and that there would be no opportunity for Public Comments.
