Background Discussion

• Section 125.022, Florida Statutes, was amended by House Bill 7103 earlier this year to accomplish several purposes, one of which was to establish maximum timeframes for the review of Development Orders and Permits. The effective date of the bill was July 1, 2019.

• To address the House Bill, staff and the County’s consultant drafted a Development Review Administrative Manual (Resolution 20-004) that contains administrative procedures and staff protocols for reviewing and processing applications for Development Orders or Development Permits, and draft changes to Land Development Code Chapters 2 (Definitions) and 3 (Review Authorities and Procedures), to reflect the changes in the Statutes.

• The changes to the LDC are text amendments that require Planning Commission recommendation and Board of County Commission approval, reflected in Ordinance 20-06. 

• The Development Review Administrative Manual will be adopted by the Board of County Commission as a Resolution, at the same hearing as Ordinance 20-06.

• The County Administrator presented a Draft LDC Amendment Schedule to the BOCC on September 24, 2019, of which included Administrative Procedures. 

• A Planning Task Force Meeting was held with staff and the public on November 21, 2019.

• Planning Commission recommended approval of Ordinance 20-06 on December 12, 2019.

• A BOCC Worksession was held on December 17, 2019.  See Recap Memo of Worksession Discussion.  The BOCC commented on staffing levels, fees, pre-aps and the Rapid Response process.  Overall, the BOCC understood the changes are mandated by the State and will help to formalize and simplify the Development Review Process.  Based on the discussion, staff revised the requirement for pre-application meetings, requiring Final Site Plan and Final Plats, as well as Public Hearing cases be mandatory, with discretionary authority given the director.

• The BOCC Adopted Hearing for the LDC Amendments and the Manual is currently scheduled for January 9, 2019.

• Staff recommends approval of the LDC Text Amendments to Chapters 2 and 3 and the Resolution adopting the Development Review Administrative Manual.
