is the direction to proceed. Mr. Lambert pointed out that the Green
Swamp was declared an area of Critical State Concern by the Florida
Legislature and is of great hydrologic significance as a recharge area.
He said he felt the staff's efforts toward reducing the scope of the
project is the proper direction to proceed. Chairman Samson stated

be presented on a regular basis in order to keep the Board fully informed

Proposed Land Use Policy
Mr. Tatum noted that the proposed Land Use Policy was discussed with the
Agriculture and Land Use Committee, and several other Governing Board
members, at 5:00 p.m. today. The Committee recommended deferring further
discussion on the proposed policy until tomorrow's Governing Board
meeting. Mrs. Parsons said she did not realize the policy would be
coming before the Board tomorrow and asked if the Board could postpone
making a decision for another month. Mr. Tatum explained that the
policy has been under review for quite some time and a decision needs to
be made regarding the policy prior to the budget cycle. Mrs. Pieper
said she, as a Basin Board member, had significant concerns regarding
the policy. Chairman Samson informed the Basin Board members that the
policy could be addressed at any time and is subject to change at the
discretion of the Governing Board.

I Water Shortage Plan
Mr. Owen reported that comments and changes have been incorporated into
the Water Shortage Plan and staff will be recommending approval for
public distribution at tomorrow's meeting. During discussion, Mr. Owen
stated restrictions will be uniform throughout the area declared to have
a water shortage. Chairman Samson said if a water shortage is experienced,
the Plan may required modification, but adoption will at least provide a
basis for control. Mr. Updike recommended that an effort be made to
develop a common matrix for water shortage plans throughout the five
water management districts to avoid confusion, particularly for those
citizens whose property boundaries fall within more than one district.
Chairman Samson directed staff to relate the Board's concern regarding
the need for uniform plans to the other water management districts.

agenda as a follow-up to discussion at the November meeting regarding
the potential for changing the lake level hearing procedures. Mr. Blain
said legal staff has identified several steps which could be modified,

in effect. Chairman Samson suggested this matter be discussed at tomorrow's
meeting and further directed legal staff to set forth options in summary
format for consideration at the February work session.
