SEMINOLE COUNTY, FL (January 14, 2022)- Over 30 agenda items were discussed at the regularly scheduled Seminole County Board of County Commissioners meeting earlier this week. Highlights are noted below.
• A Memorandum of Understanding was approved for Seminole County to join the East Central Florida Resiliency Collaborative, a collaborative between all Central Florida counties for mitigation and resiliency and projects.
• Funding was approved to replace a Seminole County Fire Department engine. In June 2021, the existing apparatus was hit by an SUV, causing substantial damage.
• A budget amendment resolution was passed to carryforward $511 million of the existing projects and grants budgets to current year budget. It is County policy to fully fund project and grant budgets based on completion of the scope or contract, which may cross over multiple fiscal years. This requires that the available balances at the end of each year be re-established in the new year to allow for work to continue. The $511 million will be carried forward for Capital Projects, Fleet, Facilities, Technology, and Equipment Related Budgets, as well as Special Economic Recovery programs (ARPA).
• A presentation was delivered by Development Services and urban planning contractor Canin Associates with proposed changed to the Land Development Code relate to Mixed Use, Parking Garage standards, Solar Development Design, and Rural Nonresidential Design Standards.
• A presentation was delivered by contractor Renaissance Planning to share final findings from the East Lake Mary Boulevard Small Area Study; the area spans East Lake Mary Boulevard from Mellonville Avenue to SR 46 and the purpose of the study was to create a clear program of land use and policy recommendations that guide and accommodate growth as the study area evolves.
