POSSIBLE COMPREHENSIVE PLANNING APPROACH


Florida has repeatedly attempted to have statewide
comprehensive planning. Its state, local, and regional processes
have essentially failed as growth management tools. Currently,
both the ELMS II Committee and the Water Issues Task Force are
looking into the planning structure. It may be wise to attempt
only limited planning goals for 1983, finishing the job during
the 1984 session. To ensure that the 1984 session is productive,
it is suggested that the 1983 session planning legislation focus
solely on the state's portion of the planning process as follows:



1983 State Planning Goals


1. Develop necessary data on public infrastructure
needed to support projected populations in the years 1990 and
2000.

2. Limit the work to public facilities and infrastructure:

water supplies
sewerage systems
sanitary landfills
hazardous waste sites
state highway system
parks and public beaches
environmentally endangered lands purchases
universities
community colleges
airports
ports
prisons

electrical power plants
transmission lines

3. Suggested processes to be followed:

(a) Have the Governor's Office of Planning and
Budget allocate to every regional planning council region its
predicted share of projected populations for the years 1990 and
2000.

(b) Direct state agencies to estimate public
infrastructure needed to support projected 1990 and 2000 popula-
tions in the areas listed above.


-Page One-









(c) Require each agency to estimate the cost of
the state providing the public infrastructure needs based on
current revenue projected forward to the years 1990 and 2000.

(d) Where budget shortfalls exist, require state
agencies to prioritize which of the projected needs should be
served by any increase in state funding.

(e) Set legislative deadlines for information to
be prepared and submitted to either the Department of Community
Affairs or the Governor's Office of Planning and Budget.

(f) Require the agency selected in (e) above to,
after public hearings, bring forward a draft state comprehensive
plans for public infrastructure goals, needs, and priorities by
January 1, 1984. The agency should be required to also recommend
funding for identified priority needs.

The instructions should clearly require the agency
to distinguish between current unmet infrastructure needs and
infrastructure needs caused by population growth between now and
the years 1990 and 2000, so this information is available for
legislative consideration in 1984.
