The staff is recommending an adjustment (contraction) of the UEAs in order for them to come into compliance with the policies now in the CDMP. While being inside the UEA still requires a UDB amendment, it makes it one step easier since the CDMP gives preference to land inside the UEA for UDB expansion.
The Commission just needs a simple majority to change the land use map. This is a land use map change. It will be a majority vote.
I DO NOT WANT THE UEA PAB RECOMMENDED ADDITION - NO WAY! They don't know what they are doing on the PAB. Just ignore them, they were swooned into a trance by the lobbyist Jeffrey Bercow.
You three Commissioners appear to be the swing vote. Swing our way please! If you add that property in the blue box (see map below) to the UEA, you will be very sorry it makes the UDB change much easier. If you think traffic is bad now, just wait--there is a development of regional impact called Parkland that just happens to fit in that blue box.. Your vote for the PAB plan would open a door that will cripple our growth management. I can give you a hundred other reasons not to do it...but I am so tired of this same fight. You have a choice, you can kiss Lennar's ass and do it or you can all do the right thing. I have given up on a lot of the Commissioners (Bell, Diaz, Barreiro, Souto, Jordan and Bovo), I have hope for others (Heyman, Moss, Monestime, Edmonson). But you three: I worry about on this issue. I hope you come through.
