Alachua County vote to not challenge City of Hawthorne's approval to annex land

Alachua county commissioners voted 3 to 2 not to challenge the City of Hawthorne's plan to annex land to Plum Creek. Commissioners also voted to allow Plum Creek to amend the county’s comprehensive land plan.

commissioner Hutchinson says the county wants the City of Hawthorne to continue forth with their dealings with Plum Creek, as the county prepares for future negotiations with the timber giant. “This Plum Creek business is not done," says Commissioner Hutchinson. "I mean we have many other things with Plum Creek. It’s incumbent on us to negotiate the best deal.”
