west of Whitcomb Bayou.

8. REASONS FOR ACQUISITION: Of the total 230+ acres, approximately 180 acres
consists of natural floodplain, is adjacent to
flood-prone areas, and contains vast amounts of
wetlands. Preservation of this property would
protect ground water recharge and the natural storm-
water detention/retention characteristics of the area.
The remaining 50 acres+ is high, heavily treed and
well drained uplands. The property would also provide
open space and recreation.

protection ordinance.

Properties Incorporated is the owner of
approximately 90 acres in the southern portion

10 acres usable for development at
$25,000 per acre.
5 acres scattered upland area at
$10,000 per acre.

Mr. Bill Howard, and Gulf Stream Development
own the northern portion of the project and
have also indicated their willingness to nego-
tiate a sale with the District.

10. (continued) Based on the same values submitted in Mr.
Roach's offer, the following would be a
breakdown of the approximate land costs
involved in a purchase from Mr. Howard and
Gulf Stream Development:
45 acres uplands at $25,000 $1,125,000
95 acres wetland at 5,000 475,000
Total $1,60000

11. STAFF COMMENTS: The City submitted three (3) options for purchase. These
are listed below in priority.

A. Buy all 230 acres+ including high and dry wooded areas.
B. Purchase the wetlands only, including the area around
Hidden Lake.
C. Purchase only the lake and its perimeter.

It appears from correspondence received from Mr. Roach as
well as conversations with him that the Basin could possibly
work out an option to purchase portions of his property over
a period of years. As well this type of purchase could possi-
bly be negotiated with the other owners.

WATER STORAGE LAND ACQUISITION FUND
(WSLAF)

SUMMARY DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED ACQUISITION


1. NOMINATION: Parcel Nos. 4 and 5

2. AGENCY: Pasco County

3. AREA COVERED: Parcel 4 21 acres+
Parcel 5 15 acres+
Total 36 acres+

4. NUMBER OF LANDOWNERS: Two (2)

5. ESTIMATED COST: $300,000 (Appraiser's Tentative Estimate)
$350,000 (Pasco County's Estimate)

6. PRESENT ZONING: A-C, Agricultural District, land is now vacant

7. LOCATION OF LAND: East of Old Dixie Highway and north of Perrine Ranch Road

8. REASONS FOR ACQUISITION: Preservation of wetlands and the natural drainage
system. This site contains cypress heads and low
sensitive wetlands which should remain in its natural
state.

9. LOCAL SUPPORT: Pasco County will assume operation, maintenance and costs
involved in any improvement of this site for drainage and
future park development to the sites.

10. OWNERS WILLINGNESS TO NEGOTIATE: Both property owners have indicated their
willingness to sell at fair market value
with the understanding that the land remain
in its natural state.

11. STAFF COMMENTS: The County is presently developing plans for the improvement
(i.e. realignment and widening) of Perrine Ranch Road which
is a major east-west artery. One concept is for the road to
bisect both parcels 4 and 5. However, the County is looking
more favorably toward realigning the road so that the same
will skirt the two parcels along their southerly boundary,
encroaching upon approximately four acres+ of parcel number
four in its extreme southwest corner. The County has agreed
in concept to contribute an amount equal to the fair market
value of the four acres (i.e. purchase price), for the area
to be encroached upon by the road. After purchase of the
parcel the Basin Board would convey the four acres to the
County for road right-of-way. An agreement outlining the
terms of such a concept would need to be prepared and approved
by all parties prior to acquisition.
