       south, Range 24 east, Lake County, Florida, which is contiguous to the city limits
       of the City of Leesburg, Florida, providing that said property so annexed shall be
       liable for its proportionate share of the existing and future indebtedness of said
       City; providing that such annexed property shall be subject to all laws and
       ordinances of said City as if all such territory had been a part of the City of
       Leesburg at the time of passage and approval of said laws and ordinances;
       providing that such annexed territory shall be placed in City Commission District
       3; and providing an effective date.

Commissioner Knowles moved to approve the ordinance and Commissioner Christian seconded
the motion.

Community Development Director (CDD) Laura McElhanon stated changes to the conditions
were approved by Staff after the Planning Commission Meeting. These changes will affect the
annexation agreement which will be discussed at the next Commission Meeting. CDD
McElhanon handed the revised conditions to the City Clerk.

CM Stock stated staff told the Planning Commission school impact fees were being discussed
and changes would be made to the conditions. Modifications to the conditions are as follows:

Page 8, Section F: Paragraph 2 requires payment towards the affordable housing
      program; Paragraph 3 requires participation in the educational facility benefit
      district, if so established by the City – this replaces the payment of school impact
      fees.

Page 10, under Stormwater Management and Utilities, Section H: two paragraphs have
      been added to create a phased approach for utilities which doesn’t create a
      problem to the City in the future or problems for the developer (i.e. package plans
      designed in such a way that when connections are made those package plans can
      turn into pump stations or lift stations for the City utilities).

Commissioner Christian commended staff and the developer for working together on this
forward thinking.

Greg Belliveau, Land Planning Group, stated the developer is planning to make the payment to
the affordable housing program as well as including work force housing units on site. The
proposed changes create a good standard on which to work. This development includes ample
open space with 21 miles of equestrian trails, walking and biking trails, a future well site for the
City of Leesburg, and an electric substation site for SECO. The proposed development will be
unique and have a family component.

CA Morrison raised a legal question about the island parcel which does not appear to be
contiguous. CA Morrison stated his office has not been supplied the information to make the
decision on this property. Steve Richey, attorney for the developer, stated he believes the parcel
to be contiguous as the island is on open water. Mr. Richey stated any challenge to the
annexation of the island parcel will be covered by the developer and not the City. The developer
will hold the City harmless and indemnify the City against any legal costs associated with the
annexation.

CA Morrison stated Florida Statues give a 30 day standing for any issues to be brought forward.
The lack of any objection from someone who is in the area is an indication there may not be any
objection.

Mayor Lovell requested comments or questions from the public.

Linda Renn, a concerned citizen, stated a developer is building a green development (energy
efficient) in Mt. Dora. Ms. Renn stated she would like to see this type of development
encouraged. CM Stock stated the developer has spoken with the Mt. Dora developer who said
the costs were high. CM Stock stated he is encouraging this group to build a green development
if it can be done without significantly impacting the cost of the housing. CM Stock is hoping to
have a professor from the University of Florida speak to the developer to see what changes could
be done to build green without significantly increasing the housing costs.
