Discuss the item and provide policy direction.
Discuss and continue the item to the June 30, 2020 LUSC meeting.
|On June 5, 2019, at the request of Commissioner Ricky Arriola, the City Commission referred the discussion item to the Land Use and Development Committee (Item C4 R). The item was discussed briefly at the September 18, 2019 LUDC meeting, and continued to the October 30, 2019 meeting.|
On October 30, 2019, the item was discussed and continued to the January, 2020 LUDC, with the following direction:
1. The City Attorney will draft an ordinance for review by the LUDC, which will include limits on big box establishments.
2. The Administration will place a C4 referral item on the City Commission agenda, as a place holder, in anticipation of a recommendation for referral to the Planning Board.
3. The administration will meet with the Lincoln Road BID for further input.
The item was placed on the January 21, 2020 agenda of the newly created Land Use and Sustainability Committee. The item was deferred to the February 18, 2020 meeting. On February 18, 2020 the item was continued to March 17, 2020. The March 17, 2020 LUSC meeting was postponed and the item was placed on the May 6, 2020 LUSC agenda.
|The administration met with the Lincoln Road BID Executive Committee on January 16, 2020. The members of the Executive Committee expressed concerns and reservations with the proposal, as well as a desire to address the LUSC with their specific concerns.|
If an ordinance should move forward, the administration and the City Attorney’s office would recommend that the City perform a planning analysis and establish a solid record for any legislative changes. As is the case with Sunset Harbor, such an analysis will be an important component of any legislation. In order to take into consideration the input of the Lincoln Road BID, it is recommended that the item be continued to the June 30, 2020 LUSC meeting.
|The Administration recommends that the Land Use and Sustainability Committee continue the item to the June 30, 2020 LUSC meeting.|
