On March 1st, 2016, the Alachua County Commission met to consider whether the Plum Creek proposal should be transmitted to state government. Commissioner Hutchinson moved that the commission reject the proposal and begin meetings to discuss Hutchinson’s Tacachale Plan. That motion passed with Commissioners Hutchinson, Byerly, and Cornell voting for the motion and Commissioners Chestnut and Pinkoson voting against the motion.
