Denise Layne, president of the Lutz Civic Association and executive director of the Coalition 4 Responsible Growth, talks about managing rural development. She discusses the history of the Lutz Civic Association, the Coalition 4 Responsible Growth, rural development in Lutz, the politics of the Hillsborough Board of County Commissioners, the building of a high school in Lutz, the Dale Mabry corridor plan, lobbying the Florida Congress, and her experiences bringing groups of developers and activists together. The interview ends with a discussion of private interests dominating the political process, which Ms. Layne feels is in part due to poor public education for the voting public.
