HOME BUILDER, REALTOR AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPER LEGISLATIVE ALERT

WATER SUPPLY ISSUE

CS/HB 2713



-- THE LORIDA BOME BUILDERS, REALTORS AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPERS
OPPOSE NEW PLANNING _MANDATE TO RESOLVE WATER SUPPLY
PROBLEMS/SHORTAGES. WE SIMPLY CANNOT SOLVE THE CURRENT PROBLEMS
AND PERIODIC SHORTAGES IN VARIOUS AREAS OF THE STATE FROM TIME TO
TIME BY SOLELY PLANNING OUR WAY OUT.

-- THE ABOVE WATER BILL DOES NOTHING TO PRODUCE ONE NEW DROP OF
WATER YET, LOCAL GOVERNMENTS RAVE THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR
IMPLEMENTING CONCURRENCY.

THE FLORIDA HOME BUILDERS AND THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY HAS
SUPPORTED A RECURRING DEDICATED SOURCE OF FUNDS BEING MADE
AVAILABLE TO LOCAL GOVERNMENTS IN THE FORM OF UP TO .25 OF EXISTING
W.X.D. MUILAE FOR AtLTRNATIVE WATER SUPPLY XINFRSTRUCTURE
DEVELOPMENT -- YET THE W.M.D.S, WO APPARENTLY HAVE THE LT.
GOVERNOR'S EAR, OPPOSE ANY FUNDS, EVEN PROM EXISTING SOURCES, FOR
WATER SUPPLY DEVELOPMENT.

-- THE W.M.D.s PROPOSE A REGULATORYRY" "SCARCITY," "NO-GROWTH"
APPROACH TO SOLVING THE WATER SUPPLY PROBLEM INSTEAD OF FOCUSING ON
PRODUCING ENOUGH WATER TO ADDRESS ALL NEEDS.

-- UNLESS THERE IS FUNDING TO IMPLEMENT "NEW" PLANNING
REQUIREMENTS, THERE SHOULD BE NO "NEW" PLANNING REQUIREMENTS.
CS/HB 2713 CONTAINS "NEW" PLANNING MANDATES WITHOUT FUNDING.

-- BECAUSE LOCAL GOVERNMENTS UNDER THE GROWTH MANAGEMENT ACT ARE
GIVEN THE RESPONSIBILITY FOR WATER SUPPLY DEVELOPMENT AND
CONCURRENCY, WMDS SHOULD NOT BE GIVEN MORE POWER AND RESPONSIBILITY
FOR SUPPLY DEVELOPMENT. BECAUSE WMDS ARE THE REGULATOR, PUTTING
THEM IN CHARGE OF THE SUPPLY SIDE IS LIKE THE "FOX IN CHARGE OF THE
HEN HOUSE." CS/HB 2713 PUTS THE WHDS IN CHARGE.

-- HOME BUILDERS AND THE DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY WERE DECEIVED ONCE
IN THE MID- 1980'S WHEN WE WERE PROMISED INFRASTURCTURE FUNDING IN
EXCHANGE FOR GROWTH MANAGEMENT; BUT, ALL WE ENDED UP WITH WAS
PLANNING MANDATES WITH NO FUNDING. WE WILL NOT BE DECEIVED TWICE.


OPPOSE CSJHE 2713 WRICH CONTAINS KEWL" PLANNING MANDATES WITHOUT
FNDI AND WHICH CONTAINS THE WMD' S "SCARCITY," "MORATORIA
APPROACHADDRESSING T WATER SUP LY PROBLEM IN FLORIDA
