WRITTEN REQUEST TO ADDRESS THE COMMISSION

JOSEPH DI CAROLIS - MOVE WOODLAKE HOMEOWNERS' ASSOCIATION SIGN

Joseph Di Carolis, Woodlake Homeowners' Association, requested permission to move the Woodlake sign from another association's property to city-owned property. He said the sign would still be approximately 13 feet from the sidewalk, but placed about 8 -10 feet from its current location. He said that the existing sign's light is on city property.

Mayor Capellini recused himself from the discussion because he is a resident of the area. He passed the gavel to Vice Mayor Shaddow. She advised that the next item on the agenda concerned the same matter and asked if Harold Stein would come forward and make his presentation before a decision was made.

HAROLD STEIN - DISCUSSION OF THE WOODLAKE SIGN

Harold Stein, President, Deer Creek Improvement Association, came forward to discuss the Woodlake sign. He began by stating that irrigation pumps were found on the 15th fairway and at the Forum. In 1987 the associations formed a committee and signed an agreement to maintain the lake at a cost of $300 per association. The agreement included permission to withdraw water from the lake and in turn, the Woodlake association could place their sign on another association's property. Mr. Stein claimed that Mr. Di Carolis believes the decline of the lake's water level is due to pumping water from the lake to irrigate and subsequently asked for the pumping to cease. Mr. Stein said the lake is spring fed and its level is controlled by the C2 canal, not the irrigation.

Vice Mayor Shaddow said that the city did not have a copy of the agreement, did not know what it stipulated and should probably not take up the issue. However, she offered City Attorney Andrew Maurodis as a mediator to the associations.

Both sides agreed to mediation.

HOSA REQUESTS ASSISTANCE FROM THE CITY

Renee Gardithey, Health Occupations Students of America, requested assistance from the city so that the club could attend the HOSA State Leadership Conference in Orlando. She stated that they helped with Operation Santa and held fund-raisers.

Commissioner Noland made a motion to give HOSA $2000.00, but asked that they help with the community built park, Fort Riverbend. The motion was seconded by Vice Mayor Shaddow. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Noland Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Shaddow, and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

 

ROBERT TODOROFF - FLORIDA JUNIOR OLYMPICS TAE KWON DO QUALIFIERS

Robert Todoroff, the Sports Mall, discussed the Florida Junior Olympics Tae Kwon Do qualifiers coming to his venue. He asked for logistical support from the city such as table and chairs and use of the pier for a reception.

Vice Mayor Shaddow suggested roadway banners announcing the event around the Sports Mall and to check with the Chamber of Commerce.

PUBLIC HEARINGS

AMENDMENT TO LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE AND TO CHANGE PERMITTED USES

Mayor Capellini advised this was the time and place scheduled for a public hearing on the following:

Ordinance 2000/001

(See following sheets for title.)

Legally advertised Sun-Sentinel - March 11, 2000

Mayor Capellini opened the hearing to the public.

Paul Hauser came forward to discuss the changes as they pertained to check cashing stores.

Mr. Hauser was advised by City Attorney Andrew Maurodis that check cashing stores would no longer be permitted in a B1 zoning district.

Mr. Hauser continued that he purchased a parcel just west of Dixie Highway and intended to move his existing business a block or so west due to difficulties at the business' current location.

Attorney Maurodis stated he would not be vested with his current rights if he moved from his present location.

Prior to purchasing the property, Mr. Hauser wrote to the city asking about the permitted uses in the B1 zoning district for that area and received a response stating that a check cashing store was a permitted use. Based on this letter, he bought the property. His store is the only one in Deerfield Beach permitted to receive payment for Florida Power & Light (FPL) bills. He stated that check cashing is not 50% of his business. His store sells Broward County bus passes. He said the store is too small for the volume of business.

Vice Mayor Shaddow commented that at the time he purchased the property, the city had legally noticed that zoning was in progress.

Director of Planning and Growth Management Gerald Ferguson added this particular change was made after Mr. Hauser's inquiry.

Vice Mayor Shaddow suggested the ordinance could be changed to allow check cashing stores as a conditional use in a B2 zoning district.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed reminded the Commission the stores were placed in a B3 zoning district as a conditional use so that in certain neighborhoods check cashing stores would not be one after the other.

Vice Mayor Shaddow interjected each case should be examined individually and variances granted based on special circumstances. She asked Commissioner Clarke-Reed if she wanted to make any adjustments at this time to the ordinance.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed responded no.

Vice Mayor Shaddow again suggested that the Commission consider placing check cashing stores in a B2 zoning district as a conditional use. Vice Mayor Shaddow asked if the Commission could grant relief under the new ordinance by permitting Mr. Hauser to operate in a B1 zoning district.

Mr. Ferguson replied no and City Attorney Maurodis concurred. City Attorney Maurodis continued that the new ordinance would clarify that a check cashing store is not a financial institution.

Commissioner Trinchitella inquired about relief for Mr. Hauser.

City Attorney Maurodis advised that check cashing stores could either be allowed in a B1 zoning district or Mr. Hauser have a vested-rights determination.

Commissioner Noland asked where Mr. Hauser was in the process.

Mr. Ferguson replied that a site plan was submitted to the city approximately six weeks prior.

The Commission informally decided to wait until the next public hearing before taking any action.

A motion to close the public hearing was made by Commissioner Noland was seconded by Commissioner Trinchitella. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Noland Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Shaddow, and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

A motion to approve the first public hearing and set the second public hearing was made by Vice Mayor Shaddow and seconded by Commissioner Trinchitella. Roll call showed: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Noland Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Shaddow, and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.
