Evaluation and Appraisal Review (EAR)


The City’s local planning process is not static. It is continuous, evolving, and ongoing. As such, the Comprehensive Plan is audited from time to time. Pursuant to Chapter 163.3191, F.S., the City completed and adopted an Evaluation and Appraisal Review (EAR) Report in December 2019. 


Policy amendments are required to satisfy requirements of Florida Statues 163.3177 (Seasonal Population), 163.3178 (Peril of Flood), and 163.3177(6)(c) (Water Supply Facility Work Plan).  These documents serve to fulfill these requirements and complete the City’s EAR based Comprehensive Plan Amendments. The proposed changes will be reviewed by the Planning Advisory Board through two meetings in July and proceed to the City Commission for consideration in August. Following first reading of an ordinance to adopted the proposed policy changes, the City will transmit the documents to the appropriate Florida agencies for review. Once reviewed and any comments are addressed, the City can adopt the amendments at 2nd Reading which is anticipated in late September 2020.


The following documents will be presented at the Planning Advisory Board meeting on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 and receive formal consideration by the Board on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. A virtual meeting is scheduled for both dates. Details for log-in will be provided as part of the published agenda for those meetings. In addition to meeting attendance, written comments are encouraged by email to Kelly Gibson at kgibson@fbfl.city.
