ACTION ITEMS: PUBLIC HEARINGS

  • Comprehensive Plan Amendment.
Recommendation to Village Council on Adoption of map 1.4 Future Land

Use as amended.

Mr. Dacquisto explained the DCA approved the comprehensive plan with the condition to change the Future Land Use map to Coastal High Hazard Area. He notified the Board of the addition of the parking area adjacent from down town on the map.

In result to this change there is a change to the zoning for the parking down town. Some of those lots are vacant, some have residence and some are existing parking lots. To accommodate houses in parking districts right now, they have become continuing permitted uses. Although you cannot change a parking to a residence you can maintain the existing residence.

The Board questioned Mr. Dacquisto concerning the B1 district and the color-coding. The Board discussed options for expanding the commercial district. The Board asked staff about including the newly annexed area and whether this was an appropriate time to include it. Mr. Dacquisto stated the annexed area stays with Miami-Dade until the Village Council and the Board change it. Therefore, it is not necessary to include it at this moment. The Board is extending the business district up to 103 St. East and West sides as general commercial with the exceptions of the Police Station, the Village Hall and the Library.

All were in favor. The special multi-use redevelopment area will be left as it is.

Recommendation to Village Council on Adoption map 5.1 Coastal Areas as Amended.

Mr. Dacquisto explained what the Coastal Area map is exactly the same area as shown on the Future Land Use map. This is the area they came up with that would be inundated by a storm surge including the area up the canal. The Board questioned if the houses being rebuilt would have to be raised 17 ft. and Mr. Dacquisto stated no, that would be regulated by the flood designation. Chairman Fernandez opened public comment but there was none. Mr. Powell moved to recommend Future Use

map as the Board amended it subject to a question for Mr. Sarafan concerning the Bay, to go to council for approval.

Mr. Madsen seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion 5-0. Mr. Powell moved to recommend for adoption of the Coastal Areas to council for approval, Mr. Madsen seconded the motion and the vote was unanimous in favor of the motion 5-0.

DISCUSSION ITEMS:

Drafting Zoning Code.

The board questioned item number O7O016, what administrative officer would appeal to the Board. Mr. Dacquisto clarified he was looking for direction on how to word it from the Board. The Board also requested clarification on the time limits in which someone can appeal. Concerning the appeals to council the Board questioned how many votes would overturn the Board’s decision. The Board requested the language be included to the effect of evidence on record from the planning and zoning hearing for the appeal to council. They also requested in order to be heard in an appeal a transcript of the hearing must be a part of the application. The variance provisions state in order for a second variance to be heard the applicant must obtain four votes from the Board or wait one year. They decided to change that provision to three months instead of one year and must obtain four votes if they want their variance to be heard prior to the ninety days.
