speeds; the definitions would be moved to the appendix; the number and spacing of
driveways; governing developments on the access to the site; and developments
surrounded by wetlands.

      a.     Questions of Staff by Stakeholder Committee

reasonable access; criteria regarding high operational speeds; connectivity and

capacity and emergency access; secondary access; causing an increase in truck traffic;
the access control language; flexible spacing requirements; the County Engineer could

Ms. Cindy Jolly, Development Director, spoke regarding the current code requirements
for open-play. A discussion came up regarding a situation where there were multiple
                                   LDC 08/18/2010
                                     Page 2 of 6
parks within a community that met the code requirements in the area, should they still
require the open-play on each park. The Neighborhood Park Ordinance was adopted
many years ago and the only revisions had been to limit what could be considered a
neighborhood park.

      a.     Questions of Staff by Stakeholder Committee

Discussion followed that the result of the requirements was there were larger parks that
were very similar; the current code did not encourage a variety of sizes and programs of
parks; suggested language that would reduce the minimum size requirements for a park
to count toward the neighborhood park requirement; the developer would still be
required to meet the overall acreage area for the park; program elements; setback
requirements from wetlands and water bodies; 55 and above parks; countywide park
systems; a separate section may be needed for senior communities; a suggestion to
determine the total amount of neighborhood park needed, and require at least 50
percent of that land be within a park or parks that were one acre or more; distance
limitations; and pocket parks.

      b.     Public Comment

Ms. Nancy Hazelwood and Mr. Richard Riley spoke regarding tree requirements for
parks; pocket parks; and to keep the trees.

Ms. Jolly explained they had never required the planting of trees in the park. She spoke
regarding park landscaping requirements and defining the edge line.

      c.     Discussion by Stakeholder Committee

There was no further discussion.

      and Lighting Standards

Ms. Cindy Jolly, Development Director, explained the Committee had previously
reviewed the item and there were outstanding comments regarding compact vehicles
and bicycle parking. Standards were added to address the compact vehicles and
bicycle parking. She spoke regarding the new section that was added; the possibility of
offering incentives for office and industrial to allow reductions in the number of parking
spaces required with car pools or van pools; low emitting and fuel efficient vehicles;
solar cars; and the availability of reliable transit systems. She continued to review the
various sections of Chapter 9 with the Committee members.

parking spaces; expedited plan reviews; possible TBARTA resources; possible
application for reduced parking; possible parking facility reductions provided for

alternative vehicles; could smaller size parking spaces count toward the required
parking; smart cars and motorcycles; incentives for recharging stations for electric

redeveloped sites; parking on sidewalks; masonry wall screening; loading areas or
docks; adjacent non-developable properties; existing non-conformities; parking lots
located along the rear and sides of buildings; aisle widths included in the table; driveway

5.    Chapter 12, Special Development Standards; Division 9, Mining

Ms. Cindy Jolly, Development Director, distributed information regarding mining and
heavy minerals. The big difference with using the term mineral extraction involved
mineral rights. She spoke regarding revisions made and explained in order to get to the
limestone, they would breach the aquifer. She explained further that Staff had been in
contact with the Bureau of Mines and that she would need to research further the
monitoring wells language.

      a.     Questions of Staff by Stakeholder Committee

Discussion followed regarding the language included in this chapter; revocation
procedures; mines were now Conditional Uses which included revocation procedures;
the need for future discussions regarding the language; the County would only need
monitoring regulations for something that was not required from another agency; peat
mining; monitoring for metal contents; separation requirements; developable residential
areas; maximum height restrictions by zoning districts; mine locations; blasting; and the
hours of operation were set by the BOCC.

      b.     Public Comment

Mr. Robert Williams spoke regarding meetings held with Ms. Jolly regarding the
Ordinance and stated he appreciated her efforts. He spoke regarding mineral rights,
surface estates, and sub-surface estates; monitoring well requirements; limerock and
peat mining; the ability for local government to request an amendment to an operating
permit; the County had every right to deal with any problems regarding the mine, but
being able to amend the permit was objectionable; monitoring issues; permitting
requirements; separation requirements from residential uses; stacking heights and drag
lines; and hours of operation.
                                     LDC 08/18/2010
                                       Page 4 of 6
Mr. George Foster explained he was a geologist who worked with the mining
companies. He spoke regarding the Bureau of Mines permitting requirements;
monitoring requirements including the installation of at least three monitoring wells, five
feet deeper than the proposed depth of the mining, routine monitoring for all potential
contaminants, and the reporting requirements; monitoring associated with the water use
permit; ground water monitoring to prove the applicant would not lower the water table
more than one-tenth of a foot at the property line; and other required permits.

Ms. Nancy Hazewood said Tallahassee did not always have the most stringent
regulations and felt the main emphasis was to protect the quality of living for the
residents.

       c.     Discussion by Stakeholder Committee

There was no further discussion.


6.     Development Services Consolidated Fee Schedule

Ms. Cindy Jolly, Development Director, explained all fees related to site development
were placed into one document and spoke regarding revisions that had been made to
the various Resolutions and fees. Staff hoped to complete the compilation and to bring
it before the Board by the end of this fiscal year. Once the Land Development Code
was completed and the different processes were developed, Staff would go back and
analyze the specific costs involved and provide a more detailed amendment to the fee
schedule. She reviewed Attachment A and the fees involved.

Ms. Baker stated the Board had made it clear that they did not want to subsidize the
cost of development from the General Fund, and that the applicant should pay the user
fees and costs associated with processing the application.

Ms. Jolly requested any comments be forwarded to her.

       a.     Questions of Staff by Stakeholder Committee

Discussion followed regarding the DRI/NOPC fee going from $3,000.00 to $10,000.00;
