Recommended Action

Conduct the second of two public hearings for the proposed ordinance relocating Article V (Water and Navigation Regulations), Article II, Division 3 (Mangrove Trimming and Preservation), and Article VI (Surface Water Management) of Chapter 166 Environmental and Natural Resource Protection of the Pinellas County Land Development Code to Chapter 58 Environment of the Pinellas County Code, and providing for renumbering and amendments thereto; and amending Chapter 110 Special Assessments of the Pinellas County Code where they are better aligned with the environment section and other similar sections of the code. 

Body

 

Strategic Plan:

Ensure Public Health, Safety, and Welfare
2.1 Provide planning, coordination, prevention, and protective services to ensure a safe and secure community

Practice Superior Environmental Stewardship
3.3 Protect and improve the quality of our water, air, and other natural resources

 

Summary:

As a result of a proposed overhaul of the Land Development Code, the above three mentioned sections are proposed to be moved to Chapter 58 of the County Code where they are better aligned.  Minor changes are being proposed to these sections which are being realigned largely intact, with mostly numbering and terminology modifications to achieve consistency with the Land Development Code should it be amended as proposed.  The only other change included is the consolidation of the assessment dredging language currently within the Water and Navigation regulations into Chapter 110 of the Pinellas County Code with the other special assessments.  There are no substantive changes to programs or practices with this amendment.

 

Background Information:

This amendment is solely related to moving certain sections of the code to the appropriate location.  There are no changes to the Board’s existing policies or staff practices.

The first public hearing was held on September 13, 2018.
