  2. Citrus County Comprehensive Plan • The Plan has been adopted as required by the Growth Management Act • It contains 16 elements and a Generalized Future Land Use Map. Citrus County Planning Division

  3. Citrus County Comprehensive Plan • The Growth Management Act requires the preparation of an Evaluation and Appraisal Report every seven years. Citrus County Planning Division

  5. Evaluation and Appraisal • Identify major issues for the community • Review past actions of the local government in implementing the plan since the last EAR • Assess the degree to which plan objectives have been achieved • Assess both successes and shortcomings of the plan Citrus County Planning Division

  6. Evaluation and Appraisal • Identify ways that the plan should be changed • Respond to changing conditions and trends affecting the local community • Respond to the need for new data • Respond to changes in state requirements regarding growth management and development • Respond to changes in regional plans Citrus County Planning Division

  7. Steps in the Evaluation and Appraisal Process • Major Issues List Prepared • Letter of Understanding sent to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) regarding the topics selected. • Prepare a draft Evaluation and Appraisal Report • Public Hearings • Planning and Development Review Board (PDRB) • BCC Adoption Hearing - adoption of the EAR by resolution or ordinance. • Review and Approval by DCA • Within 90 days after the EAR is received, DCA will make a final determination whether the report is sufficient. Citrus County Planning Division

  8. EAR Based Amendments • Once deemed sufficient, the county may then prepare amendments to the Comprehensive Plan based on the recommendations contained in the report. • The amendments must be adopted in a single cycle within18 months after the report is deemed sufficient. A 6-month extension may be requested. • Failure to timely adopt and EAR based amendments will result in a prohibition on future amendments to the plan. Citrus County Planning Division

  9. Major Issues • 10-Year Water Supply Plan • Water supply facilities work plan mandated by the 2002 Florida Legislature. • A 10-year work plan for building public, private, and regional water supply facilities necessary to serve existing and new development. • Coordinate with the regional water management plans adopted by the water management district. Citrus County Planning Division

  10. Major Issues • Greenhouse Gases • The Florida Legislature enacted House Bill 697 in the 2008 session. House Bill 697 established new local planning requirements; • Energy efficient land use patterns; • Transportation strategies to address greenhouse gas reductions; • Energy conservation; • Energy efficient housing. Citrus County Planning Division

  11. Major Issues • Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA) • CHHA is defined as the area expected to be inundated by storm surge during a Category 1 hurricane. • Extent of the CHHA is based on hurricane modeling program called SLOSH (Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes). • In September of 2010 the SLOSH map data was updated. Citrus County Planning Division

  12. Major Issues • Coastal Lakes Commercial District (CLC) District • Presently, CLC is limited to those uses that are primarily for “water related, water dependent or necessary for support of the immediate population”. • Suggested revision to allow hotel and motel facilities to encourage resource based tourism development. Citrus County Planning Division

  13. Major Issues • Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) • Consider a “transfer of development rights” system to permanently move development density away from sensitive areas in the coastal and lakes area to more suitable development locations in the central ridge or Planned Service Area. Citrus County Planning Division

  14. Major Issues • Coordination with other Transportation Plans • 2035 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) • Transportation Planning Organization (TPO). • Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA) Citrus County Planning Division

  15. Major Issues • Transportation Design Standards • Transit Oriented Development (TOD) concepts. • Comprehensive plan and associated development regulations should be amended to support and encourage TOD and multi-modal transportation planning design in future development. Citrus County Planning Division

  16. Major Issues • Future Land Use Guidelines and Standards • Family Homestead – consider possible policy adjustments or other regulatory relief related to family homesteads consistent with Ch. 163.3179 Florida Statutes. • Needs Analysis – review the issue of requiring a demonstrated needs analysis to justify changes to Generalized Future Land Use Map to assure consistency with the requirements of DCA Rule 9J-5 and Florida Statutes. • Industrial land use – clarify future land use designations as to light industrial versus heavy industrial. • Low impact development standards – consider the adoption of appropriate policies for low impact development standards. Citrus County Planning Division

  17. Major Issues • Northwest Citrus County Barge Canal Area • Cross Florida Greenway – provide updated description of the Greenway in the Future Land Use Element, on the map series and other relevant chapters. • Proposed Citrus County public boat ramp – provide description of the proposed facility in the Recreation Element and other relevant chapters. Citrus County Planning Division

  18. Additional Issues • Performance based septic systems: • “Policy 3.20.4 The County shall require all undeveloped lots of record not served by central sewer to utilize performance-based treatment systems with at least a ten (10) mg per liter treatment standard for nitrogen by 2012.” • Additional standards for springs protection were adopted in 2008 regarding “performance based” septic systems. If the County chooses not to exceed state standards then a standard septic tank would be sufficient and Policy 3.20.4 should be modified or eliminated. Citrus County Planning Division
