Background Discussion
  • On June 9, 2015 the Board of County Commission approved Ordinance 15-17, providing for an Amended and Restated Land Development Code (LDC). 
  • The Amended and Restated Code was a major “housecleaning,” primarily targeted at reorganizing and better clarifying the language and regulations in the LDC. 
  • The reorganization included: 1) moving, consolidating, and deleting repetitive language; 2) deleting titles and adding others for consistency; 3) updating cross-references internally; 4) updating cross-references to Florida Statutes; 5) removing Public Works and Property Maintenance Standards from the Code into separate Manuals; and 6) making modifications to reflect current practice.
  • As staff has started to implement the code in their reviews, some errors have been noted.  This is not uncommon with a re-organization of this size and scale.  Many of the “errors” or “glitches” are simply items that were missed, omitted by error, or typographical errors.
  • This is the first round of general “clean-ups” to the LDC.  As staff and the public continue to work with the LDC, more changes and corrections are anticipated.  Staff will bring forward additional amendments in the near future. 
  • Staff recommends approval.
