What isn’t the Destination Management Plan?
The DMP is not a piece of legislation. It has no force of law and never will. Any law, regulation, or fee would have to go through its own separate ordinance process which means three touches, and at least one public hearing before a vote. No tax could be imposed without authority from the State legislature or a vote of the people.
