MEMORANDUM


TO: Jake Varn
FROM: Charles Pattison
RE: Comments on Draft 'Consolidated Summary Of Perceived Problems"
DATE: November 4, 1996

I would like to make a few additional points concerning item 4, Absence of linkages between
plans and between permitting and planning.

I very much agree that the existing, legally approved local comprehensive plans for the most
part have given inadequate consideration to the tie between land use planning and sustainable
water supplies. In fact, most people agree that these plans may have already "authorized" more
development than existing supplies could serve. The problem then, in addition to this
circumstance, is what should be done about it.

As you know, just because a land use is approved and shown in a local comprehensive plan does
not mean it will actually get built. But the approval does mean that when development.comes to
these areas, it can proceed without going through a plan amendment process, so long as it is
consistent with the plan. Regarding available water supplies, there is no comprehensive plan of
which I am aware that even looks at an allocation issue it appears to be a first come, first serve
consideration. So, with all of this development "authorized", there is no consistent way of
deciding which development should move forward with regard to water supplies.

I would also like to have some attention focused on what limitations might be anticipated from
development expectation reductions where water supply deficiencies are documented. What
might a local government expect if it were to acknowledge water restrictions and attempt to
reduce "authorized" development? Is there any authority in Chapter 163, Part II, that would
shield local or state government from action under the Private Property Rights Act?

A final note concerns what WMDs, DEP, Agriculture, and other agencies expect from better
information on water supplies going into the local land use planning process. The Department's
current position is that while we can use such information to prevent making the current situation
worse (i.e., "authorizing" additional development in areas with known supply problems), there
does not appear to be an easy fix for the already over authorized development. How should this
situation be addressed? I can tell you in discussions the Department has had with DEP and
several WMDs, it is almost too late to deal with this at the time a plan amendment appears at our
door. Although it looks like all of us need to enter the local plan amendment process much
earlier than we do presently, there is no statutory provision for doing so.

Thanks for considering these points. If it's appropriate during the November 8 meeting, perhaps
we can spend a few minutes on this. I will also plan to bring with me a summary of our statutory
and administrative authority dealing with the water supply issue as a handout.
