RE: Kissimmee Restoration

Dear Mr. Creel:

This is a follow-up to the meeting in September between
representatives of your office, the Attorney General's office,
some of the owners of lands riparian to the Kissimmee River, DER
Secretary Carol Browner, DNR Executive Director Virginia
Wetherell and Division of State Lands Director Pete Mallison with
regard to land acquisition by the district in support of the
Kissimmee Restoration project.

The letter dated September 2, 1992 from Chairman Milledge to
the Governor and its attachment, the suggestion of a method to
proceed in the form of a motion by the District Governing Board,
were discussed at the meeting. As an alternative to the
Governing Board's suggestion, it was agreed that a three-step
process should be explored. As the first step, Board of
Trustees' staff at the Department of Natural Resources and the
District would conduct a rough Ordinary High Water Line Survey.

Preliminary work along the Kissimmee conducted by the Bureau
of Survey and Mapping in the Division of State Lands at the
0) Department of Natural Resources, however, indicates that the
rough line, relative to all of the policy lands, is extremely
close to the safe upland line. It therefore appears that setting
a rough OHWL will not be of help in negotiating acquisitions.

In the meantime, Chairman Milledge's letter is under active
consideration and a response will be issued as soon as possible.

1avid M. Maloney
