MEMORANDUM

TO: DISTRICT GOVERNING BOARD

FROM: FRITZ H. MUSSELMANN, Director, Real Estate Department ,

RE: Land Acquisition Status Report


I. BASIN 10

A. DISTRICT

1. During this past year, the Ad Hoc Committee on Save Our Rivers has
been evaluating the various projects included in our existing Five-Year
Plan of acquisition as well as other project nominations which were
/ submitted to the various Basin Boards for consideration of acquisition
under the program. At the Committee's last meeting on October 7, 1982,
the members recommended and approved certain modifications and
additions to the Five-Year Plan which are shown on the attached Exhibit
"A." The Exhibit shows a listing of the projects in the present Five-Year
Plan as well as those in the proposed plan. According to Chapter 373.59,
Florida Statutes, each District shall file annually, with the Legislature
and the Secretary of Environmental Regulation a report of acquisition
activity together with modifications or additions to the Five-Year Plan.
This report and updated Five-Year Plan are due by January 15 of each
year. We plan to present the formal Five-Year Plan document to the
Board for consideration of approval at the December meeting.

Attached is a breakdown (Exhibit "B") of lands acquired using Save Our
Rivers funds.

B. GREEN SWAMP FLOOD DETENTION AREA (GSFDA)

1. SWF Parcel Nos. 10-200-420, 421, 422, 571 796, 804, 805, 838, 840 and
848 totaling 61.09+ acres have been negotiated and approved for pur-
chase at a total of $30,485 or $6,097 from local funds and $24,388 from
the Save Our Rivers program.

2. Suit was filed (SWFWMD-vs-Bendick) on August 26, 1982, covering SWF
Parcel Nos. 10-200-424, 793, 803, 817, 827, 829, 835, 842 and 843
totaling 36.42+ acres. These were parcels we have been unable to
"^ negotiate. However, it appears we may be able to settle parcels 424 and
835 prior to trial. We are presently awaiting a trial date.

3. SWFWMD-vs-Mason, Cope and Nichols Now that funds are available
under the Save Our Rivers Program, we are reactivating the suits on the
remaining parcels in these cases that have not been tried or settled,
which total 41.03+ acres.

4. We have received 68 parcel appraisals from Knight Appraisal Services,
Inc. covering a total of 260.10 acres. Appraisals covering 34 of the
parcels were approved by the Board at the November meeting covering a
total of 100.26+ acres. Offer letters have been sent to the various
landowners to commence negotiations. If negotiable, the total purchase
price of the 34 parcels based on the approved appraisals would be $36,400
with $7,280, or 20 percent coming from local funds and the remaining
$29,120 from the Save Our Rivers funds. We are presently reviewing the
other 34 appraisals and plan to present same for consideration at the
December meeting of the Governing Board.

II. BASIN 13

A. TAMPA BYPASS CANAL SHOAL REMOVAL

1. We are in the process of negotiating with the landowners of two parcels
which were previously used as disposal areas during the construction of
the Tampa Bypass Canal (TBC), in an effort to obtain an easement from
either party in order for the Corps of Engineers to begin the removal of
approximately 800,000 cubic yards of silt which has built up in the TBC
at its entry into McKay Bay. The work will cover an area extending
approximately from the U. S. Highway 41 Bridge (50th Street), into
McKay Bay to the 22nd Street Causeway. To date, we have obtained
temporary rights-of-entry from the landowners in order for the Corps to
make test borings to determine the suitability of the two sites. In
addition, we are investigating the possibility of either purchasing and/or
exchanging one of the sites as it appears we may need a permanent
disposal area for future use. The site would need to be a minimum of 40
acres in size.

B. CYPRESS CREEK F.D.A. 13-500

1. SWF Parcel No. 13-500-219 We have an appraisal from Knight Appraisal
Services Inc., in the amount of $427,750 for 427.75 acres. Since approval
of the appraisal at the last Hillsborough River Basin Board and District
Governing Board meetings, we have determined that a small portion of
the parcel i.e., less than 1/2 acre has been conveyed by the owners to
another party. We are, therefore, revising the legal description and
having the appraisal updated to reflect the exclusion of the small parcel
from this purchase. It appears at this time the owners will be willing to
sell at the revised appraisal amount which will be presented to the Hills-
borough River Basin Board in December and the Governing Board in ^.
January for final approval.

This parcel is eligible for funding under the Save Our Rivers program;
therefore, the Basin Board will be required to pay 20 percent of the
purchase price, with the remaining balance being funded by the
program. The 20 percent matching funds are available from the Cypress
Creek Land Reserve Account.

III. BASIN 16

A. ANCLOTE WATER STORAGE LANDS (STARKEY) 15-010 and 16-010

1. Parcels 15-010-017 and 16-010-007 have been acquired by the Pinellas-
Anclote Basin Board under the Save Our Rivers program which included a
20 percent match on the Basin Board's behalf. Parcel 15-010-017 con-
sists of 310.51 acres and was purchased at the approved appraisal amount
of $543,392.50. Parcel 16-010-007 consisting of 281.75 acres was also
purchased at the approved appraisal amount of $493,062.50.

We have an agreement which was approved by the Board with the Starkey
family to purchase four other adjacent parcels (i.e., 16-010-008 through
16-010-011) over the next four years. Closing on each parcel is sched-
uled to be on or before July 31 of each year.

B. SAWGRASS LAKE 16-560

1. Parcel 16-560-133 (Sawgrass Lake Addition) was purchased at the
approved appraisal amount of $775,000 for 50.1 acres. The Pinellas-
Anclote Basin Board contributed 20 percent matching funds or $155,000
with the balance funded by the Save Our Rivers program.

C. JOE'S CREEK 16-040

1. Phase I We have approved appraisals by Donald S. Johnson and William
H. Caldwell for parcel 16-040-101 in the amount of $116,100 for 6.5
acres, 16-040-102 in the amount of $68,000 for 2.32 acres and 16-040-103
in the amount of $49,000 for 1.92 acres. Offers were made to all three
property owners on 9/9/82 and we are in the process of negotiating the
purchases.

2. Phases II and III Pinellas-Anclote Basin Board and Governing Board have
agreed to proceed with acquisition of Phase II this fiscal year (82-83) as
budgeted. The Pinellas-Anclote Basin Board also agreed that Basin
funding for Phase III to be acquired in FY 83-84 will not exceed $450,000,
with the remaining funding requirements to be contributed by local
governmental entities.
