Community Development Department HAMMOCK DUNES DEVELOPMENT OF REGIONAL IMPACT “Essentially Built Out” Agreement
Community Development Department Location Hammock Dunes DRI – Includes: -Hammock Beach -Ocean Hammock -Yacht Harbor Village -Hammock Dunes -Island Estates
Community Development Department Background What is a DRI? Any development which, because of its character, magnitude or location, would have a substantial effect upon the health, safety, or welfare of the citizens of more than one county. DRIs are regulated by Section Florida Statutes and Chapter and Rule 9J-2 Florida Administrative Code.
Community Development Department Background What is being requested? The development of regional impact is essentially built out, in that all the mitigation requirements in the development order have been satisfied, all developers are in compliance with all applicable terms and conditions of the development order except the buildout date, and the amount of proposed development that remains to be built is less than 40 percent of any applicable development-of-regional-impact threshold;
Community Development Department Performance Backed Conditions ICWW BRIDGE: Applicant is to construct or cause construction of 2 additional lanes on the ICWW Bridge when FDOT and the County determine that the bridge traffic is at LOS “C”. Design and application for construction permits to commence 3 years before LOS “C” operation is predicted to occur. Palm Harbor Parkway: The applicant shall 4-lane all or any part of the road and bridges located on Palm Harbor Parkway between Clubhouse Drive and Florida Park Drive when traffic counts exceed 10,000 ADT. Design and permitting to occur at 8,000 ADT. Palm Coast Parkway: Intersection improvements, when warranted, escrowed for Palm Coast Parkway and Belle Terre Parkway.
Community Development Department Summary Request for “essentially built out agreement” is from the original developer; DRI obligations created in 1984, never modified;
Community Development Department Recommendation City Council authorize staff to send letter recommending: Condition of Approval 4.1 to widen the ICWW Bridge may have already been triggered as the AADT is 11,000 trips per day, which is LOS C. Therefore, the County should retain the Guarantee for those improvements. Condition of Approval 4.7 to widen Palm Harbor Parkway from Clubhouse Drive to Florida Park Drive is to occur when the traffic volumes reach 10,000 ADT. Even though the DRI is essentially built out, the developer is not relieved of the improvement. The costs of the improvement should remain in escrow and be transferred to the City. Condition of Approval 4.6 should be readdressed to ensure that improvements to Palm Coast Parkway at Belle Terre Parkway either have been made by the County and Developer or will be made by transferring the escrowed funds to the City. AND City Council direct legal counsel to apprise City of appropriate legal steps to maintain standing.
