          Annexation of Riverland Road and Melrose Park


          What This Process Will Do
          This process will establish the zoning standards by which you will be
          governed. Once adopted, all development and uses will be required
          to comply with these standards.

                                                FORT LAUDERDALE

       Annexation of Riverland Road and Melrose Park

  What This Process Will Not Do
 Change development standards not specifically addressed at this meeting. If
the Broward County Zoning Code specifically addresses a development
standard that is not addressed at this meeting, then the Broward County Zoning
Code will continue to govern that development standard after your
neighborhood is rezoned.

 This process does not apply to nuisance-related issues. Nuisance-related
issues include noise, property maintenance (i.e., tall weeds, junk vehicles,
unsafe structures) and lighting (glare).    Nuisance-related issues in your
neighborhood are currently governed by City code requirements, and will
remain so after your neighborhood is rezoned.

This process WILL NOT make legally non-conforming or “grandfather”
development that was not properly permitted by either the County or by the
City. Uses that were established and/or structures that were constructed
without obtaining the proper permits, will be required to meet all applicable
zoning and building codes.

          Annexation of Riverland Road and Melrose Park

 What This Process Will Not Do
  What does legal non-conforming or “grandfather” mean?
  Legal non-conforming or grandfathering are terms used in zoning to refer
  to development or uses that were legally approved under previous zoning
  regulations, which regulations have later been changed to a different
  development standard, or which now prohibits previously permitted uses.

  How does this apply to you?
  If you choose to adopt zoning standards that differ from those standards
  that you are presently governed under, then any legally approved
  development or use that does not comply with the new standards will be
  considered legally non-conforming or grandfathered. Such development or
  use may remain on the property indefinitely.

           Annexation of Riverland Road and Melrose Park

What This Process Will Not Do
 However,  the structure or use may not be enlarged or expanded unless such
expansion complies with the current code requirements Further, the legally non-
conforming structure or use may remain, provided that no more than 50% of the
structure is destroyed or damaged. If more than 50% of a legally non-
conforming structure is damaged or destroyed, then the reconstruction of that
structure will be required to comply with current zoning standards.

 Will this process apply to the Florida Building Code?
No - all development in the State of Florida is required to comply with the
Florida Building Code, regardless of what jurisdiction (City or County) you are
in, or what zoning classification you are governed by.

MELROSE PARK OPEN HOUSE
COMMENT CARD SUMMARY
MONDAY, JANUARY 29, 2007

• I would like my existing lot width to stay the same. When Foster Marine improved the area a few years ago,
they changed the entrance of Tennessee Avenue to Jackson Boulevard and caused me to have more swale
area than I previously had. I have a hard time wetting the grass. They also placed a water hydrant there. I
would like to see parking of cars two wheels on the grass and two wheels on the street. There are enough city
parks, so people should not allow basketball hoops on the side of the road to create a problem for traffic and
destroy the swales and sprinklers.

• One of the main things we want is for our Melrose Park to remain a single-family residential area.

• Existing church in RS-4. Legal non-conforming in RS-4. RS versus community facility zoning.
Melrose Park Christ Church of Universal Love, Inc. 260 SW 38th Terrace, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312.

• Want street lights. Access from Broward Boulevard should be limited to one or two entrances. Can the “main
street” concept be implemented on Davie Boulevard between I-95 and US 441?

• I would like to see speed bumps or some sort of speed control placed on Berkeley
