[ARCHIVED] Uncover Broward County Amendment Two

Uncover Amendment Two

On the November 3, 2020 ballot, Broward County voters will see a question regarding an amendment to the Broward County Charter. The Amendment 2 question, if passed, would allow the County to move forward on transportation surtax projects on County property within a City, without having to comply with the local municipality's zoning, regulations and ordinances. In other words, the City of Hollywood Ordinances would be bypassed if this amendment is approved by voters.

What is the ballot language?


“To facilitate implementation of surtax-funded improvements to the countywide transportation system, shall the Broward County Charter be amended to provide that County ordinances regulating the development, including zoning, permitting, construction, operation, or administration, of transportation improvement projects that are (1) on County-owned or County-leased property and (2) funded in whole or in part with proceeds from the transportation surtax approved by the County’s voters in 2018, prevail over conflicting Municipal ordinances?”

YES  ____________

NO  ____________

Potential impacts of Charter Amendment 2?

If Amendment 2 passes, the City will no longer have the ability to regulate the development, zoning, permitting, construction, operation, or administration of any transportation improvement projects on County-owned or County-leased property that are funded all or in part with proceeds from the transportation surtax. City leaders ask that you be an informed voter and have your voice heard on this important matter.
