ITEM G-1 TAPE 1. COUNT 616
Ordinance 2001/ -Land Use Plan Amendment #29-A

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF DEERFIELD BEACH AMENDING
THE LAND USE PLAN MAP AND TEXT OF THE CITY OF DEERFIELD
BEACH COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FUTURE LAND USE ELEMENT TO
CREATE AND DESIGNATE A REGIONAL ACTIVITY CENTER.

The Ordinance was read by title only.
Jerry Ferguson, Director of Planning and Growth Management, stated that the last year
when the City Commission adopted the Community Redevelopment Agency Plan it was
noted that City's Land Use and zoning must be changed to be consistent with the CRA
Plan. He said the proposed Ordinance is the first step for said process and is the
transmittal hearing for application to amend the Broward County Land Use Plan and the
City's. The process is long and requires the County and the State of Florida Community
Affairs approval, which means the proposed Ordinance second public hearing and
adoption would take place in approximately May or June 2001. Therefore, he
recommended that the Commission approve the transmittal of the amendment with the
intention to adopt the proposed Ordinance.

Continuing, Mr. Ferguson highlighted the CRA, which begins at Federal Highway to the
Ocean, the portion west of the Intracostal is referred to as the Cove area, and east as
the Beach portion. He said that the proposed Ordinance only affects the beach portion
and outlined the various land use designations in the subject area. Once the land use
amendment is adopted, zoning must occur in addition to the sign criteria. In conclusion,
Mr. Ferguson said that if the Commission approves the proposed Land Use Amendment
tonight, it would not be approving specific development, but allows the flexibility to
implement the CRA Plan.

Notwithstanding, in accordance with recent amendments to Florida Statutes, Section
163.3184 (8) (b) any member of the public that speaks on this item, the State of Florida,
Department of Community Affairs, would mail a courtesy informational statement
regarding the ruling of the Notice of Intent in compliance with Florida Statutes. Mr.
Ferguson also stated that the proposed plan has been reviewed and recommended
approval by the Planning and Zoning Board.

Leigh Kerr, Kerr and Associates, Inc., 808 E. Las Olas Boulevard, Suite 104, Fort
Lauderdale, Florida, established in 1985 and begin working for the City of Deerfield
Beach in the early 80's. Mr. Kerr stated that the amendment to Land Use Plan is for the
beach portion only. He highlight the map of the Regional Activity Center, RAC, which is
approximately 91 acres in size with the entire Community Redevelopment Area being
approximately 165 acres. The City's current Land Use Plan does not allow the flexibility
PUBLIC HEARINGS -CONTINUED
that the City needs to develop CRA and the CRA Plan. He said that flexible mixed-use
type land use category is required which is the purpose for the Regional Activity Center,
RAC would afford the City.

Mr. Kerr said that the RAC was established in the County plan approximately ten (10)
years ago which allows land use within areas to be available for local governments
flexibility to control through zoning. RAC areas are such as the Downtown Fort
Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale beach area, Downtown Hollywood, portion, and a portion
of the Broward Community College. Notwithstanding, a RAC does not approve a
specific development, but allows the flexibility for the cities to adequately develop its
Comprehensive Plan particularly for the CRA. He said that that the RAC is designed
for specific types of areas within the County to include the areas of regional significant
which include tourist activities, and the beach area is definitely a tourist destination and
activity zone with in the City as well as Broward County. The RAC must also facilitate
redevelopment and a specific purpose would be that the City of Deerfield Beach has
already established a CRA. Therefore, the City does qualify under those requirements,
and it is a good candidate to accept by the County and the State of Florida, Department
of Community Affairs.

Continuing, Mr. Kerr stated that the RAC facilitates mixed-use development and the City
is determined to accomplish on the beach area, through its CRA Plan and it encourages
transits. Therefore, recommended in the report, Application for Amendment to the City
of Deerfield Beach and Broward County Land Use Plans, is the expansion of the
community shuttle that is presently occurring within the City. He said that the Broward
County Transit Program offers a 16-passenger bus with maintenance stipend with
operation at the local level. He said that they have development the documents
required to be submitted with the application, to include a map change, for one area as
the RAC, text amendment to include goals, objectives and policies.

In conclusion, Mr. Kerr stated that they developed intensity standards in the terms of the
impacts on the community facilities, traffic, and alike on the anticipated development
scenario of 2,000 residential units, 900 hotel rooms, 175,000 square feet. Also, to
provide additional flexibility developed was a conversion chart to allow a minimum or
maximum intensity, by reducing the intensity in another fashion. He said that the RAC
would bring a lot of positive areas to the City of Deerfield Beach. And recommended
that zoning ordinances be developed if the proposed land use be implemented.

In response to Mayor Capellini's question, Mr. Kerr replied that the Broward County
Land Use Plan recognizes the Regional Center Activity (RCA). And restrictions can be
placed on height limitation of buildings on the beach area.
PUBLIC HEARINGS -CONTINUED
Marge Hilton, Representative Original Save Our Beach Committee, 1101 SE 5 th Court,
Deerfield Beach, stated that they are a group of citizens that would like to preserve and
protect the City's beach, as well as the use and access of the beach. Therefore, she
urge that the Commission denied the proposed Land Use Plan Amendment. She
further stated that the amendment would increases the following; commercial
designation 77%, from 99,000-sq. ft. to 175,000 sq. ft.; hotel designated rooms 105%,
from 439 to 900; multi-family units 33%, from 1,507 to 2,000. She said the reason for
this amendment is a continued assault on making the beach less resident user friendly
in exchange for attracting tourist who would further congest the beach and make a large
profit for a few developers.

In conclusion, Mrs. Hilton said that Broward County is being assaulted on many fronts
by development, which is at the expense of the public, to include Hollywood, Fort
Lauderdale and Deerfield Beach. She said that it is the citizens that loose their quality
of life for unnecessary commercial and hotel development on the beach. Therefore, she
urged the Commission to deny the request and allow the citizens to enjoy the beach.
