REPORTS/CONTRACTS, LEASES & AGREEMENTS
Captain George Pringle, Commander of the local Civil Air Patrol Squadron, appeared before the Board to make a presentation on the Civil Air Patrol. Colonel Dave Fuller, Colonel Ben Glazier and Colonel Ben Nation were also present.
Captain Pringle stated the Civil Air Patrol operates as an auxiliary of the United States Air Force. The two major functions of the Squadron are a Cadet Program, which trains and works with young people, and the Wing. The Wing is capable of conducting emergency operations. The Leesburg Squadron has three aircraft equipped to locate a downed aircraft. This service is available to the County for use in any emergency.
Captain Pringle stated that since 1987 an Agreement has been in effect in Lake County and the Group Six Civil Air Patrol to
supply air radiological monitoring, air control direction, and surveillance of surface, water, land, life transport for emergency movement of personnel and supplies.
Commr. Swartz discussed the capability of the Squadron to transport prisoners, with Captain Pringle stating he would look into the possibility.
RIGHT-OF-WAYS, ROADS AND EASEMENTS/ASSESSMENTS
Mr. Jim Stivender, Director of Public Works, appeared before the Board to present the workshop on alternatives for acquiring the remaining right-of-way on Robbins Road, a potential special assessment project southeast of Astatula.
The primary issue is the amount of County participation in a special assessment project in acquiring right-of-way prior to the assessment taking place, and the decision to purchase the right-of-way and pass the cost onto the property owners included in the special assessment.
Mr. Stivender presented maps of the area in question and gave a brief history of the road in question. Mr. Stivender stated that the total right-of-way cost, if all right-of-ways were acquired, would be $52,800.00. The outstanding right-of-way costs for the four property owners not in agreement would be $5,280.00. The typical lot cost for each property owner would be approximately $2,934.00. Adding the outstanding right-of-way to that would bring the cost per property owner to approximately $3,066.00.
Mr. Stivender stated that there are four (4) owners which have not given right-of-way. They represent less than 10% of the right-of-way that has been required. There is a need by the property owners to get a 55% commitment before eminent domain can be considered.
Commr. Swartz commented that there has been a commitment by the property owners to work with the staff to get the remaining right-of-ways donated. In spite of these efforts, there are still the four property owners that have not given right-of-way. He further stated that one of the options that has been looked into is
to acquire the remaining right-of-ways through eminent domain, and include those costs back into the cost of the special assessments.
Mr. Al Thelen, County Manager, stated that the goal of the policy in providing one-third of the assessment is to encourage property owners to have streets improved and to improve neighborhoods. The fact that the majority has given right-of-way, with only four not giving right-of-way, in effect, negates that approach. It is the staff's feeling that, if eminent domain is the only way to proceed, it needs to be presented to the Board to make an exception in this case.
Ms. Linda Pillows, property owner, appeared before the Board in favor of the project.
Mr. Roy Carlson, property owner, stated that he and his wife have worked on this project for ten years and they are willing to share in the cost of paying for the right-of-ways.
Mr. Bud Ward, property owner, appeared before the Board stating he and his daughter, who owns property across the street from Mr. Ward, are in favor of the project. Mr. Ward and his daughter are willing to give right-of-way on the Ranch Road property. Mr. Ward stated that he does not feel his daughter should have to give 66 feet and the adjacent property owner not give anything.
Mr. Mike Rutherford, property owner, appeared before the Board in favor of the project. Mr. Rutherford stated his concern over the possibility that emergency vehicles would have a difficult time responding to an emergency situation in a timely manner due to the present condition of the road in question.
Mr. Stivender presented a letter from Ms. Linda Grabowsk in opposition to the project.
Commr. Swartz made a motion, which was seconded by Commr. Bailey, to instruct staff to prepare an amendment to the Road Policies which would indicate an alternative to acquiring right-of-way in cases such as this to be included and brought back to the Board for adoption, and for staff to be given approval to go ahead
with the petition process for special assessment on Robbins Road with the understanding that the necessary right-of-way will be acquired through eminent domain with the property owners along Robbins Road paying for the cost of the right-of-way, with the County Special Assessment fund not being used for acquiring the right-of-way.
Commr. Windram stated the desirable result is to negotiate something that is fair and acceptable to all property owners. If this is not possible, there are other options such as mandatory lien assessment, or to move the road.
The Chairman called for a vote on the motion which was carried unanimously as stated above.
RECESS AND REASSEMBLY
The Chairman announced that the Board would recess for lunch and reconvene at 2:00 p.m. for the Comprehensive Plan Element - Traffic Circulation.
Mr. John Swanson, Executive Director of Planning & Development, appeared before the Board to present the Comprehensive Plan Element - Traffic Circulation, and to briefly review the rationale for the planning procedure.
Mr. Swanson stated the staff is using the 1986 Existing Land Use data from East Central Florida Regional Planning Council. Mr. Swanson reported the data is being updated based upon the zoning changes that have taken place since 1986. The State requires a population package and an employment projection package independent of the Land Use study. The State allows 25% to 50% either way on the population projections.
Mr. Swanson presented two maps for the Board's review, pointing out the difference between a future Land Use Map and a generalized Land Use Map and the different approaches each map presents.
Mr. Larry Kirch appeared before the Board to answer questions regarding the Land Use Maps.
Commr. Swartz requested that the maps be left in the Board of County Commissioners' conference room for further review.
Mr. Larry Kirch presented a Draft Document regarding the proposed Lake County Comprehensive Plan meeting schedule, with Public Hearings included.
Ms. Annette Star Lustgarten, County Attorney, pointed out to the Board that the Statute does not require the Hearings be held after 5:05 p.m. but there is a public participation requirement in the Statute.
Mr. Kirch stated that only one public hearing is required for the Local Planning Agency (LPA).
Discussion occurred regarding the scheduling of committee meetings and Public Hearings.
Ms. Annette Star Lustgarten stated that it is necessary for the Board of County Commissioners to be present at the public hearing.
Commr. Bakich suggested the possibility of going by Commission Districts, then schedule Public Hearings accordingly.
Mr. Kirch stated that the Board is required by law to have one LPA meeting where it transmits a document to the Board of County Commissioners. That meeting is proposed for December 18, 1990.
Ms. Annette Star Lustgarten stated that final action with the Board of County Commissioners sitting as the LPA must be held by December 18, 1990.
Further discussion occurred regarding the scheduling of Committee meetings and Public Hearings.
Mr. Al Thelen stated that staff will prepare a new meeting schedule and have it distributed.
Ms. Gena Swartz, Chairperson, was present for questions regarding the Traffic Circulation Element.
Mr. Mark Knight appeared before the Board to give an overview of the Traffic Circulation Element. Mr. Knight stated that a consultant has been hired to develop a model for the County so that there will be background data available for projected projects.
The Consultant has completed this year's model and reports that everything is adequate.
Mr. Knight stated the primary problem in Lake County is the 441 Corridor, especially through Fruitland Park, Leesburg and the Lady Lake area, due to the fact that there is not an alternate parallel route. He also gave an overview of the maps identifying the road classifications, with discussion from the Board.
Levels of Service (LOS) was discussed under the section titled Traffic Circulation System Analysis. It was pointed out that a key factor in measuring the effectiveness of transportation planning is the use of Level of Service analysis. Six levels of service have been defined with "A" representing the best operating conditions and "F" representing the worst.
Collector roads were briefly discussed, with little concern for local roads. This identifies the need for Lake County to further investigate Level of Service Standards.
Commr. Swartz stated that a road running north of Lake Griffin, perhaps over existing Highway 42, connecting in Belleview could be a possible method of relieving traffic on Highway 441. He further stated that, due to the development around Highway 192 and Highway 27, consideration needs to be given to the possibility of a parallel road east of Highway 27.
Discussion occurred regarding the Unincorporated Area Minimum Operating Level of Service.
Discussion occurred regarding the DOT classification of Lake County roads, and in revising these classifications Lake County should coordinate with DOT to accurately reflect the traffic circulation system. DOT reclassifies the roads every five years with the last classification completed in 1987. Commr. Bakich suggested that the policy should state that in 1992 the County will contact DOT and present scenarios of each road.
Discussion occurred regarding right-of-way preservation programs for future roadway improvements. The County's current working policy is that right-of-way is to be acquired by donation
and not to be purchased. Ms. Annette Star Lustgarten will attend the next Transportation Committee meeting to discuss defining the difference between a "reservation map" and a "preservation map".
Commr. Bakick questioned if the policy will state that Lake County will annually update its transportation model in order to determine roadway segments, and if it will state revalidation of the model should be conducted once every three (3) years.
ACCOUNTS ALLOWED/INSURANCE/FIRE PROTECTION
On a motion by Commr. Swartz, seconded by Commr. Bailey and carried, the Board approved the request to encumber funds from the Fire District 240 Accounts to pay the Worker's Compensation Insurance premium, in the amount of $29,344.00.
Commr. Windram was not present for the vote.
There being no further business to be brought to the attention of the Board, the meeting adjourned at 4:00 p.m.
