calming -Tony Stallaro, President of Starlight Cove Homeowners Association, 364 NW

neighborhoods: Starlight Cove, Deer Isle, Gates of Hillsboro, Harbors of Riverglen and
Riverglen. He said that the current Ordinance does not allow residents to park their
cars on the swale over night but in the streets, which creates a traffic problem because
the streets are narrow. Mr. Stallaro stated that they have contacted the Broward
Sheriff's office and spoken with the homeowners in all the developments; however, the
homeowners are aware that they cannot be fined because the code allows them to park
on the streets. Therefore, he requested that the Commission consider an ordinance
amendment to rectify this problem.

determine what action can be taken.

Commissioner Gonot stated that he spoke with Mr. Maurodis and he indicated that he
would review the Ordinance to review if it can be amended to address this matter.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked if the subject streets are City streets?
Mr. Stallaro replied yes. He said that the homeowners are not using their driveways
although they have a two or four car driveway.

In response to Mayor Capellini's question, Mr. Maurodis replied that the Association
does not have control over the streets.

Mr. Stallaro requested authorization to form a traffic calming committee for the five
associations surrounding the Starlight Cove, as Mr. DiPalma recommended for the
Cove residents. He said that they have met with Mr. DiPalma and he is aware of some
of the issues and concerns. He further requested authorization to have Mr. DiPalma
conduct a traffic study, specifically for vehicles speeding, running stop signs and using
NW 6 th Street, NW 41 st Way, and NW 45 Avenue to cut through traffic to avoid the
intersection of Hillsboro Boulevard and Powerline Road.

H. QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS
Mayor Capellini advised that Items H-1 through H-7 are quasi-judicial hearings in nature
and anyone who wishes to testify must be sworn in.

Andrew Maurodis, City Attorney, placed all individuals to speak on the above-mentioned
items under oath

ITEM H-1
ORDINANCE NO. 2001/ 010 -Mogerman O'Leary & Patel IV, Inc. by
Lisa Zelch (Application No. 00-R-131)

COMMENTS: To rezone a .402 acre parcel from RM-25 (Residential, Multi
Family) to B-1 (Community Business) 123 N. E. 20 Avenue.

Dennis Mele, 200 East Broward Boulevard, counsel for applicant, highlighted the map
with the property in question. He said that H-1 is a rezoning for a portion of the property
because the majority of the property is currently zoned B-1 and the remaining 2 1/ 2 lots
are zoned residential. Therefore, he requested that the 2 1/ 2 lots are added to the four
lots that are currently zoned B-1.

Mr. Mele further stated that the site plan is a part of Item H-2 and the initial use of the
property is for a parking lot for the beach area. He said the parking is not required
parking for any use but additional parking to be available for the publics use. As part of
the application, they are also requesting a variance to allow 9' x 18' instead of the
standard 10' x 20' parking spaces. At the Planning and Zoning meeting there was great
deal of discussion regarding the size of parking spaces and public comments
concerning the 9' x 18' spaces. He said that they are not requesting amending the
Code citywide to allow 9' x 18' parking spaces, but in the subject location only.

In addition, Mr. Mele stated that there was great support at the Planning and Zoning
Board meeting in favor of the proposed project because of the need for parking in the
area. He said the proposed lot would consist of 111 spaces, and if the spaces were 10'
x 20' the lot would decrease by 44 spaces, leaving only 77 parking spaces. They have
currently met or exceeded the open space and landscape requirements to include
additional buffer walls around the edge of the property.

Gerald Ferguson, Planning and Growth Management Director, stated that the project
has been approved by the Planning and Zoning Board, rezoning and site plan. The site
plans were revised to comply with all departmental requirements and comments listed in
the Development Review Committee report, (DRC), with the exception of the parking
space sizes. He said the subject property is located within the CRA and the adopted
CRA Plan has recognized that 9' x 18' parking spaces are appropriated. He further
stated that Bill Reynolds, EDSA, member of the City's CRA consultant team is present
to address the parking space sizes.
QUASI-JUDICIAL HEARINGS -CONTINUED
Bill Reynolds, Planner and Landscape Architect, Edward D. Stone, Jr. and Associates,
EDSA, stated that they assisted the City in the plans for the CRA and where the subject
parking area is being proposed. He said that their standard is to recommend 9' x 18'
parking spaces. They have conducted research in the municipal code with other cities
within Broward County to include the County, i. e. the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Dania
Beach, Oakland Park, and Hollywood and all have adopted 9' x 18' standard.

In response to Mayor Capellini's question, Mr. Reynolds replied yes the City asked him
to appear before the Commission to address the parking space issue.

Mayor Capellini expressed opposition to the City hiring consultants to come and defend
the applicant's application whether it is for large or small parking spaces. He said that
this is totally inappropriate.

Continuing, Mr. Reynolds stated that the standard spaces are in response to the
downsizing of automobiles, environmental concerns in coastal areas, and generally do
not represent a problem for transportation purposes.

Mayor Capellini further stated that if staff have an opinion on the subject matter, it
should be reference, but an outside consultant should not be brought in to support an
applicant because it would set a precedent and asked that it not be done again.

Maureen McGarry, 1442 SE 6 th Street, stated that she is in favor of additional parking
spaces in the beach area but spoke in opposition of the 9' x 18' parking spaces. And
said that the City of Deerfield Beach should not set its standards according to that of
other cities but consider the safety and convenience of the citizens.

Mr. Ferguson stated that the intent of having Mr. Reynolds address the Commission
was not to defend the developer but as a recommendation considered in the CRA, he
asked that the CRA consultant address that the 9' x 18' parking spaces are consistent
with the adopted CRA Plan. And would take Mayor Capellini's comments at heart for
future concerns.

Mr. Mele further stated that the City of Coral Springs and Cooper City uses 9' x 18'
parking spaces and have a high population of young people, as well as the City of
Hillsboro Beach. And by allowing 9' x 18' parking spaces on the beach it would allow
more parking spaces than if 10' x 20' is required.

Michael O'Leary, Mogerman O'Leary & Patel, stated that as part of the community, they
have worked with the City to improve the areas within the City's vision. He said the
subject property has been vacant for approximately 15 or 20 years and they have taken
the initiative to put it to use by constructing a parking lot, which is greatly needed in the
area. He said that 9' x 18' is reasonable to allow people to get in and out of their cars.
And urged the Commission to approve the variance to allow parking spaces to be 9'
x18' rather than 10' x 20' for this specific lot. Commissioner Clarke-Reed asked what size are the parking spaces for the lot that Mr.
O'Leary currently manages on the beach?

Mr. O'Leary replied 9' x 18'.
Vice Mayor Noland stated that the neighbors have expressed concerns regarding the
parking hours remaining open until 2: 00 a. m. and stated that the City's parking lot on the
beach now closes at 11: 00 p. m. And recommended that the proposed parking lot close
at said time since there are homes in the area.

Mr. Mele stated that they would like to accommodate the businesses in the area, which
is why the 2: 00 a. m. time was recommended.

Vice Mayor Noland further expressed concern regarding the driveways. She suggested
that traffic not exit the parking lot into the residential neighborhood.

Mr. Mele explained that they have addressed this matter and recommended that the
driveways be restricted to have traffic forced to A1A. He further stated that the traffic in
the parking lot would need to circulate from one driveway back into the parking lot if
they cannot find a parking space.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed recommended that the traffic circulate in the parking lot and
not onto the street for safety issues.

Mr. Mele stated that if the traffic circulates in the parking lot, they would have to reduce
the number of parking spaces. However, they would work with the City Engineer to
either channel the traffic or reduce the parking spaces by four to allow traffic to circulate
in the parking lot.

In response to Vice Mayor Noland's question, Mr. Mele replied that the standard drive
aisle size for planners is 24' in width, two way direction. And one way is less.

Vice Mayor Noland requested that the standard drive aisle size be included subject to
approval.

MOTION was made by Commissioner Trinchitella and Seconded by Vice Mayor Noland
to adopt Ordinance No. 2001/ 010. Roll Call: YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed,
Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella, Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor
Capellini. NAYS: None.

COMMENTS: To construct a 111-space parking lot; AND seeking a
VARIANCE to allow parking spaces to be 9'X18' rather than 10' X 20'

This item was discussed under Item H-1. And recommended for approval subject to the
restrictions indicated by Vice Mayor Noland standard drive aisle size and traffic is
circulated within the parking lot and not onto the streets from the parking lot driveway.

Mayor Capellini stated that he is in favor of 10' x 20' parking spaces because they are
more comfortable and convenient, however, parking is needed in the subject area and
the use is currently for parking only. Therefore, he recommended a restriction,
indicating that if the property is used for any other reason the parking condition would
not carry over.

Andrew Maurodis, City Attorney, recommended that the item be approved with the
understanding that the parking would not serve as required parking for any use.

There were further discussion regarding the time the parking lot would close. And Vice
Mayor Noland recommended that the lot be closed at 11: 00 p. m.

Michael O'Leary, Applicant, requested that they be allowed to close the lot at 11: 00 p. m.
and not allow additional parking. But allow those that have parked their cars in the lot to
remain until they are ready to leave.

Vice Mayor Noland agreed to allow the cars that are parked in the lot prior to 11: 00 p. m.

at 15 West Hillsboro Boulevard.
QUASI -JUDICIAL HEARINGS -CONTINUED
Gerald Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management, stated that the City
previously approved the Check Cashing Store that is being constructed on Hillsboro
Boulevard. The original plans provided for a curb cut off of Hillsboro Boulevard with
parking spaces along the road with an entrance at the north. Due to the Florida
Department of Transportation (FDOT) not approving the site plan, the applicant is
requesting variances for one parking space (8 spaces instead of 9) and for the
landscape island widths. He said that the Development Review Committee has
approved the minor modification.

Dr. Michael Bartel, 57 W. Hillsboro Boulevard, expressed concern that a check-cashing
store was granted a variance in a B-1 zone, which zoning does not allow such facilities.
He urged the Commission to take into consideration that the building is being
constructed for two businesses with eight (8)-parking spaces.

Donald Paustian, Applicant, stated that they were approached by the City to beautify the
corner, after approval of their plans. And they voluntarily made the changes to include
installing shutters, lights, and additional landscaping.

Vice Mayor Noland stated that the curb cut has resulted in the reduction of two parking
spaces.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed stated that Dr. Bartel has indicated that there are two
businesses being constructed in the new building; however, the Commission only
approved the applicant for the Check Cashing Store, and asked if were plans for
another business to be located in the building. If so, it would require additional parking.

Mr. Ferguson stated that the parking spaces are based on the square footage of the
building.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed reiterated that the Commission only approved the Check
Cashing Store and not for any other business to share the building. And asked what
was the intent of the applicant?

Mr. Paustian replied that the plan calls for two stores to be built on the property one of
which would be the Check Cashing Store and the other side for another business.

The Commission expressed opposition of two stores being located in the building, due
to the Commission having only approved the Check Cashing Store.

Mr. Paustian agreed to only have the Check Cashing Store in the building and prohibit
any other use in the building.

Andrew Mauordis, City Attorney, recommended that a deed restriction be executed
indicating that there would only be one use in the building. And suggested that the
certificate of occupancy not be issued prior to receiving the deed restriction.

ITEM I-2 TAPE 1, COUNT 2243
Request for waiver of sidewalk requirement by Gregory Mire for
Centex Homes

COMMENTS: Section 98-19 (19) of the Land Development Code
Requires that sidewalks be constructed along both sides of all streets. The
same section also provides "The City Commission may waive sidewalk
requirements where no need is demonstrated for the sidewalk."

Gerald Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management, stated the applicant
Gregory Mire is requesting a waiver of the sidewalk requirement for the south side of
SW 10 th Street west of the entrance to the Waterways/ Centex Homes development. He
said that the City's code requires sidewalks on both sides of the street. He said
included in the Commission's backup is correspondence from DOT Turnpike District
opposing the installation of a sidewalk in this area because it would pose a safety
GENERAL ITEMS -CONTINUED
hazard related to pedestrians in the vicinity of the Turnpike and the Sawgrass
Expressway. Mr. Ferguson further stated that the City Engineer also forwarded a letter
agreeing with DOT. He said when the site plan was submitted for approval, the
applicant neglected to request the waiver. However, this owner and the adjacent owner
to the East, have constructed a sidewalk along SW 10th Street from Waterways
Boulevard easterly to Powerline Road.

Larry Deetjen, City Manager, stated that he has met with the representative from
Centex, and suggested that since there are traffic signals currently installed that the
applicant consider installing a sidewalk on the north side of SW 10 th Street. This would
aid residents of Waterways to Quiet Waters Park safely to the intersection of Powerline
Road and north to the park entrance. He said that there are continuous sidewalks,
thanks to Waterways Centex, Independence Bay and the mall on the south side, which
is a very busy intersection. Therefore, by installing the sidewalk on the north side it will
aid the pedestrians.

Mr. Deetjen further stated that he received a telephone call from the applicant today
expressing concerns that his suggestion would mean a longer length, therefore, it would
be an additional expense to construct the sidewalk. And he suggested a possible
partnership with the City, County, etc. and have the applicant pay only the amount that
was required to be installed to the Turnpike.

Gregory Mire, representing the applicant, stated that he would like to have his client
meet with the City Manager to work out an equitable arrangement on the distribution of
the sidewalk requirements by the City. And requested the Commission's approval to
waive the sidewalk requirement for the south side of SW 10 th Street west of the
entrance to the Waterways/ Centex Homes development.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed recommended that the Commission grant the waiver for the
southwest side and direct the City Manager to meet with Mr. Mire and the County
regarding the north side to Quiet Waters Park.

In response to Commissioner Clarke-Reed's question, Mr. Deetjen stated that when a
development of this size, over 1,000 homes are constructed, sidewalks are to allow
residents and visitors to safely walk to and from sections of the community. And in this
case installing sidewalks towards the Turnpike has been opposed by both the DOT and
the City's Engineer for safety reasons; having them constructed to the development to
Quiet Waters Park would assist the pedestrians in this area. He said the applicant is
required to pay for a portion of the traffic signal that would be installed and sidewalks
are related to traffic safety. 16
Mr. Mire stated the requirements for sidewalks are required adjacent to the project, and
since the sidewalk that Mr. Deetjen is proposing is on the other side of the street, does
not fall in the classification of being a requirement. Therefore, they would like to
accommodate the City's concerns as well as theirs. And requested that the sidewalk
requirement be waived because they have a bond at the County, which is being held
until they build.

Mr. Deetjen stated that the applicant was required to place a bond for the traffic signal
installation; which was released prior to any consultation with the City. Therefore, the
City of Deerfield Beach will be installing traffic signals at the subject intersection and
paid for partially by the taxpayers of Deerfield Beach. And requested the cooperation of
what has occurred in the subject area.

Mr. Mire stated that he is not familiar with all the details surrounding this matter;
therefore, he cannot address Mr. Deetjen's comments. And requested the condition of
approval and said that they will work with the City and negotiate an exercise.

After further discussion, Commissioner Clarke-Reed recommended that this item be
tabled until the May 15, 2001 City Commission meeting.

MOTION was made by Vice Mayor Noland and Seconded by Commissioner Clarke-Reed
to table this item until the May 15, 2001 City Commission meeting. Roll Call:
YEAS: Commissioner Clarke-Reed, Commissioner Gonot, Commissioner Trinchitella,
Vice Mayor Noland and Mayor Capellini. NAYS: None.

Consideration by the City Commission of a recommendation
regarding host landfill fee

COMMENTS: Larry Deetjen, City Manager, to discuss with Commission
landfill fee.

Larry Deetjen, City Manager, stated that there has been much discussion from officials
from other communities, however, they have not mentioned the five and three axle
vehicles that transport to and from the landfill, approximately 1200 daily. He said that
although the backup material includes a Pennsylvania article, the same is performed in
the St. Petersburg area. And said that to get to the landfill, the vehicles must travel the
streets of Deerfield Beach, Powerline Road, Green Road and the Sawgrass. Therefore,
he requested that the Commission consider in the future a fee to be levied on the
vehicles or paid for by the landfill that is in operation in the City of Deerfield Beach.

After further discussion, the Commission stated that if this is implemented, the fees
would be raised and it would result in an increase for the taxpayers.
It was the Consensus of the Commission to strike this item.

Health Insurance Request for Service Proposals regarding RFP's
COMMENTS: Mike Norcia, Risk Manager, to discuss health insurance
Mike Norcia, Risk Manager, distributed to the Commissioners the scope of service and
response to the questions asked by Vice Mayor Noland.

Vice Mayor Noland expressed opposition to the information being provided to the
Commission at this time because it does not give them the opportunity to review it. And
recommended that requested information be provided to the Commission prior to the
meeting in the future.

Mr. Norcia stated that he has met with the City Attorney regarding this matter and was
advised that they do not have a complete request for proposal but recommended a
scope of service and did not require advertisement. Therefore, seven companies were

plan. And listed those companies that submitted bids and outlined the information that
was submitted with the scope of services.

Vice Mayor Noland stated that the City has been with Blue Cross and Blue Shield for
approximately 14 years. And asked if their representatives could address the
Commission's concerns and not pay a consultant $50,000.

In addition, Vice Mayor Noland stated that the City's Annual Physical Report indicated
that in 1997 there was $694,000 favorable in the insurance and in 1998, $450,209
favorable and in 1999, unfavorable, $210,000, She asked how did the City go from
$450,209 favorable to $210,000 unfavorable?

GENERAL ITEMS -CONTINUED.
Mr. Norcia stated that he was not employed with the City; therefore, he could not
answer the question. Nevertheless, the inflation of health care was beginning to
increase in 1999 -2000. And the previous risk manager was not raising the rates each
year, which resulted in the City's fund decreasing each year.

Commissioner Trinchitella stated that because the previous risk manager allowed the
rates to decrease, and now the Administration and Staff is recommended that all funds
be recovered in one year. He asked what is Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS)
recommending as an increase?

Mr. Norcia replied that the cost is approximately 15% in total.
After further discussion, it was the consensus of the Commission to direct the
Administration and Staff to have a Blue Cross and Blue Shield representative to appear
before the Commission to address questions and concerns regarding the employees
health insurance.

COMMENTS: Update on Fire Inspection Program, presented by Chief

at the September 19, 2000 City Commission meeting, Chief Lother stated that it would
take approximately one year to have the fire inspections up to date.

GENERAL ITEMS -CONTINUED
Gary Lother, Fire Chief, stated that in October 2000 the City Commission approved two

In response to Vice Mayor Noland's question, Chief Lother replied that he has

status of this situation. She further stated that Chief Lother should have recommended

In response to Mayor Capellini's question, Andrew Maurodis, replied that the City can
cause the Union to go to arbitration; however, it would be a long process.

she is constantly receiving questions regarding Martin Luther King, Jr. and Hillsboro
Boulevards. She said the City Manager previously advised that the project would be
completed prior to the Mango Festival, which is only a month away.

Darrick Green, Administrative Assistant to City Manager, stated that there is a
temporary delay in the realignment of MLK and Hillsboro Boulevards due to
administrative processing between the County and the City as it relates to execution of
the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Agreements, unexpended funding.
He said currently it is an environmental review checklist, which is required by HUD and
must be executed prior to any infrastructure improvements begin.

Larry Deetjen, City Manager, stated that at a previous City Commission meeting, Tony
Viola, Director of Engineering and Utilities, was directed by the City Commission to
submit a plan to the County and was told that the County would fund the project.
However, the County made a decision not to fund it, therefore, the City reviewed other
avenues to fund the project. And proceeded to use unexpended funds from the CDBG
and advised the County that the City would like to continue to proceed with the project.

At which time, Mr. Green was informed that if CDBG funds are used for the project, the
County's environmental guidelines must be adhered to.

Commissioner Clarke-Reed stated that this project has been ongoing for approximately
eight years.

other funds are considered to move forward with the project.

the Federal Government and Broward County and to reprogram the funds at this time
would delay the City use of CDBG funds, further for other projects. Therefore, he
requested that Commissioner Clarke-Reed and the residents of District 2 continue to be
patient in hopes that the project would soon move forward.
