Background Discussion
  • The Water Supply Facilities Work Plan was adopted by reference into the Comprehensive Plan in May, 2008 following the approval of the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) Regional Water Supply Plan (RWSP) approval in 2006. 
  • The SWFWMD updates the RWSP every five years.  The most recent update was approved on July 26, 2011.  In order to meet water supply and water facilities planning requirements, the Comprehensive Plan must address 6 criteria that are outlined in the staff report.
  • The purpose of this Comprehensive Plan Text Amendment is to adopt the Water Supply Facilities Work Plan by reference into the Technical Support Document of the Comprehensive Plan and update applicable policies to be consistent with the newly adopted plan.
  • On September 11, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners adopted the Water Supply Facilities Work Plan.
  • On November 8, 2012, by a vote of 7 - 0, the Planning Commission recommended transmittal.
  • On December 6, 2012, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Board of County Commissioners recommended transmittal.
  • The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity sent a letter dated January 11, 2013 stating that the Agency had no comment regarding the proposed amendment.  Other state agencies also issued letters noting that they had no comment.
  • Staff recommends approval.
