SELECT COMMITTEE ON GROWTH MANAGEMENT

STAFF ANALYSIS

April 26, 1983


BILL NUMBER: PCB 83-4

COMPANION/SIMILAR: -Teon % \) \) \0o

RELATING TO: Minimum Requirements for Comprehensive Plans



I. SUMMARY

A. Present Situation

Currently, under the Local Government Comprehensive Planning
Act, Chapter 163, the state land planning agency may comment on
the issue of whether a local government comprehensive element is
consistent with the state comprehensive plan, when the plan is
being developed or amended. There is no requirement that the
state approve or disapprove any of the elements of local govern-
ment comprehensive plans and no criteria for such an approval or
disapproval.

B. Probable Effect of Bill

This bill adds a new section to Chapter 163, Florida
Statutes, relating to the contents of the coastal zone protection
elements that certain local governments are required to prepare
and implement. The bill requires that these elements contain
land use maps, analyses of transportation and drainage systems,
hazardous mitigation plans, regulatory techniques to protect
the ecosystem, human life, and property, and plans for siting
water dependent facilities.

The bill requires the state land planning agency to
adopt, by rule, minimum criteria for the review and the approval
or disapproval of the elements. It also provides that the state
land planning agency may adopt procedural rules for conducting
the reviews of the elements.

Approval of the coastal zone elements will determine the
continued eligibility of the county or the municipality for
state funding for beach erosion projects and state disaster
relief funds. Further, an approved coastal zone element will
be a prerequisite for the consideration of all coastal construc-
tion permit applications in the municipality or county.











II. FISCAL IMPACTS


A. State Government

An appropriation of $2,183,032 from the general revenue
fund to the state land planning agency is made to implement
the provisions of the act.

B. Local Government

Since the bill provides an appropriation for the purpose
of making grants to local governments for the revision of the
coastal zone protection elements, no local impact is expected.


III. GROWTH IMPACTS

A. Overall Impact

The purpose of the Local Government Comprehensive Plan-
ning Act was to require local governments to develop compre-
hensive plans to be used as guidance in making future decisions.
It is the intent of this bill to insure that at least one
element of those comprehensive plans meets some minimum state
criteria. The state has a particular interest in the coastal
zone element since coastal counties are expected to absorb
over eighty-two percent of Florida's population growth in the
1980s.
