STER MANAGEMENT DIST T
REVIEW COMMISSION

The activities of Florida's five water management districts have great impact on citizens throughout the
state, and the Commission believes that the public can provide valuable information on the operation
of the water management districts and the laws they administer. The Commission solicits your input
at a regional public hearing to be held on:

THURSDAY, JULY 27, 1995

PUBLIC HEARING LOCATION:
Florida West Coast Symphony Center
709 North Tamiami Trail
Sarasota, Florida 34236

AGENDA:
5:00- 6:30 P.M. Registration
5:30 8:30 P.M. Public Testimony

Testimony during the public hearing will be limited to five minutes per speaker on a first-come, first
served basis. Speakers representing the same group or issue should select one spokesperson so the
Commission may hear as many perspectives as possible. The Commission asks that each speaker
submit his or her comments in writing at the time of presentation. Sufficient copies for each of the
twenty-one Commissioners would be helpful. Testimony will begin at the designated opening time and
conclude with the last speaker present, if prior to the posted concluding time. Citizens unable to attend
the public hearing may submit written comments or recommendations to the Commission.

PLEASE NOTE: The remaining portions of the Commission's two-day meeting will also be held at the
Florida West Coast Symphony Center located at 709 North Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, Florida. The first
meeting segment will begin at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, July 27,1995, with an overview of the programs
and operations of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, which will be followed by a
presentation by the Executive Director of the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority.
During Commission subcommittee meetings, to be held from 12:30 3:15 P.M., discussions will focus
on issues relevant to the following subcommittee areas: District Responsibilities & Operations; Land
Acquisition, Planning & Management; and Financial Structure & Budgeting. As noted above, the public
hearing portion of the meeting will be held from 5:30 8:30 P.M. (or until the last speaker has been
heard). Commencing at 8:00 A.M. on Friday, July 28, 1995, the full Commission will conduct its regular
business meeting and issue discussions, followed by formal presentations by state and local govern-
mental representatives, agricultural interests, and environmental engineers or attorneys. Interested
persons are invited to attend all meetings.

This meeting in Sarasota will be the Commission's final public hearing. Thereafter, the Commission will
conduct additional meetings to discuss and formulate its recommendations to the Governor and
Legislature, which are tentatively scheduled to be held in the following cities on the dates indicated:
Orlando (August 24-25); Tallahassee (September 26-27); Tampa (October 19-20); Orlando (November
9r10); and Tallahassee (November 30-December 1). Although public testimony will not be solicited
during these discussion meetings, the public is invited to attend all sessions.
