Land Development Code

Background Discussion

Palma Sola Bay Club is a development on the west side of 75th Street West at 34th Avenue West. This development is only partially built out and currently holds a right-of-way maintenance agreement with the County for landscaping, irrigation, and a neighborhood sign on the County property at the northwest corner of 75th Street West and 34th Avenue West. This corner property is a stormwater pond acquired and constructed with the widening of 75th Street West in the early 2000s.

The developer has approached the County with a proposal to add additional landscaping to the pond property where it fronts 75th Street West. This will include relocating their neighborhood sign.  The Association will not only be responsible for maintaining the landscaping they install, but also for mowing the entire parcel. This is a benefit to the County in that the parcel will look much better than standard County maintenance and will also save approximately $2,000 annually in mowing costs.

By this agenda, staff is requesting the Board of County Commissioners to rescind the original right-of-way maintenance agreement and approve the new one that provides for the enhanced landscaping and the assumption of lawn mowing of the entire pond area by the Association. Attached to this agenda is a general location map of the neighborhood and stormwater pond location, the existing agreement to be rescinded, and the new agreement to be executed.
