Item 41 Outreach and Planning Committee October 30, 2012 Routine Report Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Related Reviews Report Purpose This report is provided for the Committee’s information and shows District activity in the review of Local Government Comprehensive Plans and Amendments. Staff updates the report monthly. Background/History The District provides technical and policy information on water resources and water resource management to local governments as they prepare amendments to their local government comprehensive plans. This information encompasses all aspects of water resource management, including water supply, flood protection, water quality and natural systems, and is intended to support sound land use decisions. A number of statutory provisions direct the District in the provision of this assistance, particularly Section 373.0391, Florida Statutes (F.S.), Technical Assistance to Local Governments. As a part of the District's efforts to ensure that appropriate water resource information and policy direction is reflected in local government comprehensive plans, the District conducts reviews of local government proposed plan amendments. The state land planning agency, the Department of Community Affairs (DCA), administers this review process. Comments submitted by the District typically become a part of DCA's "objections, recommendations, and comments" report to the local government. In addition, the District will often perform informal reviews of draft plan updates working directly with local governments. Benefits/Costs The benefits of the District's local government technical assistance program are to ensure local government elected officials has sound water resource technical and policy information as they amend their local government comprehensive plans. This helps to ensure local plans are compatible with the District's plans, programs and statutory direction. Costs for this program primarily include staff time and are budgeted in Fund 10 (Governing Board). Staff Recommendation: See Exhibit This item is provided for the Committee's information, and no action is required. Presenter: Colleen Thayer, Bureau Chief, Public Affairs
