2010 Florida Statutes
It is hereby declared to be the finding of the Legislature that the area described herein as the “Capitol Center” is a vital part of the past, present, and future of the State of Florida and that its development must be regulated in such a manner as to ensure the character and dignity of the public facilities which constitute the capitol buildings of the State of Florida. The Legislature, in adopting this act, has recognized that the downtown area of the City of Tallahassee and the other area included in the district is, first and foremost, the Capitol Center of a great state and that the final authority for planning and development within the Capitol Center, whether public or private, should vest in the state. It is not the purpose of this act to acquire property or to prohibit private development, but rather to ensure that all development within the district, whether public or private, is consistent with the state concern for a well-planned, efficient and aesthetically attractive state capitol.
