  1. Poinciana was created by the state as a geographical single PUD spanning Polk and Osceola counties in the year 1972. Amendment six states ‘Unless otherwise required, districts must be compact, as equal in population as feasible, and where feasible must make use of existing city, county and geographical boundaries.’ Since defined among existing geographical boundaries recognized by the State of Florida, it would be contrary to Amendment 6 to split Poinciana among three separate state house districts. Maps that have been submitted show it is feasible to include Poinciana in a single district. Therefore why cannot Poinciana be defined within a single district as required by Amendment 6?

    This comment applies to all other maps created splitting the Poinciana PUD into multiple congressional, senate or state house districts.

    In Okaloosa County, this plan ignores common sense boundaries and uses obscure waterways and block lines for borders. It also divides neighborhoods by using these obscure lines.

    We suggest the following changes.
    1. On the western side the line follows I-10 to the Crestview city limit, then continues to Hwy 4 (Antioch Rd), instead of meandering further up city limits and a small stream to Hwy 90, the line should go straight up Hwy 4 to Hwy 90 and then to the Yellow River. This line is a cleaner split.

    2. On the eastern side, the line meanders from Hwy 90 southeast to the Shoal River along block lines that split neighborhoods. There are two choices for a cleaner boundary.

    a. The line should continue east along Hwy 90 to the Shoal River
    b. From Hwy 90, the line should go south along Okaloosa Ln to the railroad tracks, then follow the tracks southeast to the Shoal River.

    The strip of land in Navarre (mainland but South of 98) this map and three others (9017, 9021, 9023) put in District 2 looks to be complete gerrymandering and make absolutely no sense. Navarre should be kept whole. This will be a nightmare and cost the county more money having to print two ballots in five or six precincts. Not sure how it will even stand the smell test with Amendment 5. It also makes much more sense to have Navarre Beach with Navarre in my opinion.
