S_0P1_hannon _%_Wright, Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission_0Q4_Fish , addressed the _%_Board to explain the great partnership that _%_FWC and _%_Seminole _%_County have built over the last three years regarding the conservation of bears. _%_She explained _%_FWC has the responsibility of managing wildlife; and in doing so, they have to use all the tools available to them. _%_On behalf of the _%_FWC, they hope the _%_Board makes the decision not to pass the resolution.

Chairman Horan clarified that no decision has been made yet on another bear hunt; Ms. Wright added that will be addressed at the FWCs June commission meeting. Commissioner Carey pointed out that the resolution says, according to the FWCs statistics, there should be enough bear habitat for the number of bears that the County has; however, they still have an issue. She wants FWC to look at the entire central bear management unit district and figure out if that is really the right thing to do in the community. Commissioner Constantine thanked the FWC for providing a free bear-resistant container to an elderly couple who wanted to abide by the new refuse rules. He reiterated what Commissioner Carey stated and added he wants FWC to look at other alternatives before they reinstitute another bear hunt. He pointed out that a bear was spotted in College Park, Orlando, today and stated the Countys program is working because bears are looking in other locations. Commissioner Dallari agreed with Commissioner Constantine. He explained that what the County is doing is helping, and he wished that other communities will take the lead in doing the bear-proof trash cans and educating the public like the County has done.

Ms. Wright replied by stating that when Seminole County has called FWC, FWC has been there. FWC is working hard with other county governments to try to implement the same type of ordinance that the County has been the leader of. She noted FWC is proud to be the Countys partner.

Commissioner Carey discussed the refuse ordinance, bear-resistant trash can sizes and types, and cost of haulers. Chairman Horan thanked Ms. Wright for all the great work the FWC does. He stated county citizens are really smart and have caught on quickly to do the things they need to do to keep themselves and their families safe as is evidenced by the fact that the County hasnt had the amount of encounters since it employed the practices. Commissioner Carey noted it is an educational process, and she believes just having discussions has brought it to the forefront. She opined it is an all-around effort with a lot of people involved to educate the public on the importance of securing garbage.

Speaker Request Forms were received and filed.

LAKE HOWELL ROAD

RP REZONE/Jonathan Wood

 

Agenda Item #24 A-2111-16

Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider a Rezone from A‑1 (Agriculture) to RP (Residential Professional) for 0.42 acres located on the east side of Lake Howell Road, approximately 100 feet north of Meadow Avenue, Jonathan Wood, received and filed.

Matt Davidson, Planning & Development Division, addressed the Board to present the request as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum. Mr. Davidson displayed a PowerPoint presentation (copy received and filed) and explained that the Applicant is requesting a rezone in order to develop the subject vacant property for general office uses listed in Sec. 30.624(b)(1) of the Land Development Code of Seminole County as permitted under the RP (Residential Professional) zoning district. The intent of the requested RP zoning district is to provide for low intensity office and service uses along a collector roadway while maintaining compatibility with the adjacent residential areas. Mr. Davidson pointed out that the subject site will access from Lake Howell Road, which is classified as an urban collector roadway. He discussed the surrounding zoning and compatibility with the Land Development Code. He added that the site is located within the City of Casselberrys utility service area and will be required to connect to their utilities; and the Applicant has communicated with the City of Casselberry and will be required to file an annexation petition with the City in order to receive the utilities prior to engineering approval. The Planning & Zoning Commission voted unanimously to recommend approval of the request and staff is recommending approval of this request.

Upon inquiry by Chairman Horan, Jonathan Wood, Applicant, stated he would not be making a presentation.

Dario Jimenez, 1910 Water Lane, addressed the Board to state his concern is privacy. Mr. Jimenez stated he has been living here for 18 years. He has a swimming pool in the backyard and this project would be facing his property. He stated he wants to know the details and when construction will be started. He has been told by Mr. Davidson that the project is in the first stage and will take time before starting construction. Commissioner Carey confirmed with Mr. Jimenez that his house backs up to this lot.

With regard to public participation, no one else in the audience spoke in support or in opposition and public input was closed.

Speaker Request Form from Dario Jimenez was received and filed.

With regard to the privacy concerns of Mr. Jimenez, Mr. Wood stated the hours of operations would be Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Other than those hours, the facility would not be operational for business use. He stated he can talk to Mr. Jimenez about what he would consider more private.

Commissioner Carey confirmed with Mr. Wood that it is a single-story building that is being proposed. With regard to a fence along the property line, Mr. Wood stated in the design from an engineering perspective, there is no fence yet; but he stated he is more than open to put a fence there if necessary. There will also be a 30-foot retention area for water drainage that will be behind the property. Chairman Horan remarked that there will be a spatial buffer between the construction and Mr. Jimenez property. With regard to the timing for construction, Mr. Wood explained that construction wont occur for quite some time. He first has to get the financials in order. Commissioner Carey confirmed with Mr. Wood that this is just a conceptual site plan.

Motion by Commissioner Henley, seconded by Commissioner Carey, to adopt Ordinance #2016-17 enacting a Rezone from A‑1 (Agriculture) to RP (Residential Professional) for 0.42 acres located on the east side of Lake Howell Road, approximately 100 feet north of Meadow Avenue, as described in the proof of publication, Jonathan Wood; Development Order.

Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

Chairman Horan notified Mr. Jimenez that this is just the rezoning of the property to allow this kind of construction and suggested he keep in touch with the Countys staff in terms of what may happen in the future. Commissioner Constantine referred to the letter from the City of Casselberry concerning Mr. Wood asking that his property be annexed into the City. Mr. Wood stated that Casselberry requested that as part of the condition for the utilities.

Commissioner Dallari stated the Applicant had indicated he would be willing to put a fence in and pointed out that wasnt in the motion. He confirmed with Mr. Wood that he will be willing to put a fence in at the appropriate time.

Commissioner Carey requested that staff obtain Mr. Jimenez information and not put the burden on Mr. Jimenez. If something comes back in on this property, she would like staff to notify Mr. Jimenez that something has come forward.

BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT APPEAL

3711 Vinsetta Court/Sam Stark

 

Agenda Item #25 PH-2016-317

Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider an appeal of the Board of Adjustments decision to approve the request for a side-street setback variance from fifteen feet to ten feet from the back edge of the sidewalk for a fence in the PD (Planned Development) district for a variance from Land Development Code of Seminole County Section 30.1349, and more particularly known as 3711 Vinsetta Court, Sam Stark, received and filed.

Denny Gibbs, Planning & Development Division, presented the request as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum. Ms. Gibbs explained that on March 21, 2016, Mr. Stark requested a side-street setback variance from fifteen feet to three feet for a fence. After discussion, the Board of Adjustment approved a variance for a side-street setback to ten feet from the back edge of the sidewalk for the fence with a condition that the sight visibility triangle be maintained.

Ms. Gibbs stated that Mr. Stark filed a Notice of Appeal and asked that the Board of County Commissioners consider his original request to approve the placement of the fence at the three‑foot mark. She advised that they received a letter of support (copy received and filed) which was distributed to the Board members today. Ms. Gibbs displayed an aerial map (copy not received and filed) and stated that Mr. Stark provided a Petition of Support and those properties are represented by the red dots on the aerial map. She pointed out that the house across from Mr. Starks property at 3708 Vinsetta did receive a similar variance. Ms. Gibbs concluded her presentation by stating staff is recommending that the Board overturn the Board of Adjustments decision and deny the variance request for a side-street setback from fifteen feet to three feet.

Commissioner Carey stated she sees that they have a lot of things starting to come forward that say "from the back of the sidewalk" or "from the back of this or that" instead of from the back of the property line. Obviously, sidewalks disappear; they get widened or taken away. She believes that, as a policy, they should do setbacks from the property line and not from something that may disappear.

Chairman Horan referred to a picture in the Agenda Memorandum and questioned what is being depicted by the line. Ms. Gibbs suggested they let the Applicant answer that.

Sam Stark, Applicant, addressed the Board to refer to the photo being displayed and explained that it depicts five feet from the sidewalk and he believes the property line is 18 to 24 inches off of the sidewalk. He used five feet from the sidewalk as just an easier visual and distance barrier when he is out measuring since he doesn't know exactly where the property line is. He agreed with Commissioner Carey and stated his request is three feet from the property line.

Commissioner Dallari asked Mr. Stark if that five feet depicted represents three feet from the property line; Mr. Stark responded approximately, within two to six inches. Mr. Stark confirmed for Chairman Horan that the property line is about 18 inches inside of the sidewalk. Mr. Stark distributed a packet of photographs (copy received and filed) and displayed the first photo from his packet, with the incomplete pool. He explained they bought a really decent‑sized backyard. He referred to the fence in the photo and stated that is where his fence would come in and connect.

Mr. Stark displayed the next photo (across the street neighbor) and advised the fence in this photo is five feet from the sidewalk. He displayed the next two photos (directly across the street view and 3' from the sidewalk) and stated the fence depicted in the photos are three feet from the sidewalk. He displayed the next photo (other side of the street ‑ 3') and pointed out that right across the street from the house in the previous photo is the same thing, another fence that is three feet from the sidewalk. He advised that the next two photos (5' distance) depict what five feet from the sidewalk would look like.

Mr. Stark discussed the final photo (extended sidewalk to middle of back wall) and explained that the dotted line depicts the sidewalk being extended with the fence still maintaining the five feet from where the property wall (from the first photo) connects. He believes this is still at a safe distance and safe viewing area for vehicles that are turning right into this community. All of the neighbors supported this and are aware of it. He emphasized that it is a very short distance from the entrance point to the stop sign.

Chairman Horan asked if where the stop sign stop is, the fence at that particular point will create an angle clip so the sightline will be maintained. Mr. Stark stated the thought was to sort of have it bend because the road curves a little bit so the fence can kind of curve around to give an open sightline to maintain safety.

Commissioner Dallari noted that if you stop at the stop bar, you can see down the street. Mr. Stark agreed and added they can see the sidewalk more importantly. Mr. Stark confirmed for Chairman Horan that these are private roads and that the homeowners association has already approved this. He confirmed for Commissioner Carey that his request is for three feet from the property line.

With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition and public input was closed.

Motion by Commissioner Dallari, seconded by Commissioner Carey, to overturn the Board of Adjustments decision to approve the request for a side-street setback variance from fifteen (15) feet to ten (10) feet from the back edge of the sidewalk for a fence in the PD (Planned Development) district and instead approve a variance request for a side-street setback variance from fifteen (15) feet to three (3) feet for a fence in the PD (Planned Development) district, as described in the proof of publication, Sam Stark; Approval Development Order.

Under discussion, Commissioner Carey confirmed with Commissioner Dallari that his motion is for the setback to be three feet from the property line.

Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

PROPOSED AMENDMENTS TO THE TEXT

OF THE SEMINOLE COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

 

Agenda Item #27 PH-2016-321

Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider adoption of amendments to the text of the Introduction, Future Land Use, Housing, Implementation, Intergovernmental Coordination and Recreation and Open Space Elements of the Seminole County Comprehensive Plan, received and filed.

Sheryl Stolzenberg, Planning & Development Division, addressed the Board to present the request as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum. Ms. Stolzenberg advised that the Local Planning Agency held its public hearing to provide comments on November 4, 2015; and the BCC held the first transmittal hearing on March 8, 2016 and transmitted to the State and regional reviewing agencies. Comments were received and were included with the materials that were given to the Commissioners. She added that the majority of these amendments are efforts to make the plan clearer to the readers by removing a lot of obsolete language referring to parts of the Florida Administrative Code that don't exist anymore or have duplicated language.

Ms. Stolzenberg explained that in the Introduction Element to clarify things, two definitions have been proposed to be added because there are terms used throughout the Comprehensive Plan and it makes things clearer to provide a definition. In the Future Land Use Element, two issues, three objectives, and seven policies were proposed to be amended to change the name of one of the overlays from Energy Conservation to Urban Centers and Corridors Overlay to make it clearer that what is being discussed is one of the ways that the County plan is trying to carry out and support the Central Florida growth vision ("How Shall We Grow?"). She pointed out that also the description of that overlay, which was originally described at the end of the Land Use Element as the Energy Conservation Overlay, is proposed to be changed to Urban Centers and Conservations.

Ms. Stolzenberg stated the exhibits to the Future Land Use Element, which is called the Land Use Designations and Allowable Zoning, is proposed to be changed to allow a floor area ratio of 1.5 in the High Intensity Planned Development Target Industry (HIP-TI) Land Use. The Future Land Use Element Exhibit that was previously called the Energy Conservation Overlay is proposed to be changed to call it the Urban Centers and Corridors Overlay. She pointed out that in the Introductory Element, language on implementation of a section of the element is proposed to be changed to avoid duplication of language that appears elsewhere. Also, in the Implementation Element, Future Land Use boundary interpretations and how overlays are to be used, that language is clarified.

Ms. Stolzenberg explained that in the Intergovernmental Coordination Element, language duplication again is sought to be removed and a very large exhibit that really was never a requirement of State law and was duplicating what was already in the text is proposed to be amended because it really doesn't add anything and confuses people because it is so out of date. For the Recreation and Open Space Element, the exhibit is proposed to be changed so they add in the County's new park. Ms. Stolzenberg remarked that she would be happy to answer any questions.

With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition and public input was closed.

Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Dallari, to adopt Ordinance #2016-18 amending the text of the Introduction, Future Land Use, Housing, Implementation, Intergovernmental Coordination and Recreation and Open Space Elements of the Seminole County Comprehensive Plan, as described in the proof of publication.

Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

Chairman Horan stated he knows a lot of hard work went into this and he is glad the County Manager has initiated this work so they can get the Land Development Code up to snuff and make sure that not only the policy is correct but that it is not confusing to the business and development public.

Commissioner Carey stated she knows they have talked pretty extensively over the past couple of years about the HIP‑TI area up in the northwest corridor, and she knows the County Manger is moving forward with some type of study to look at that because there are a number of small parcels up there that are not big enough to have mixed use on them and questioned how they address that. Maybe they are not big enough for a big office but would be big enough for support services, either small commercial or small residential. Commissioner Carey asked Ms. Guillet when the Board can expect that study might be coming back so they can get some relief. Ms. Guillet stated she does not know what the exact timing is. She knows that they asked for proposals from the planning consultants that they have continual services contracts with and they have received two. She believes that staff has selected a consultant to initiate that study so once they have all of the paperwork done on that, they will provide a schedule.

DISTRICT COMMISSIONERS REPORTS

District 5

Commissioner Carey reported that the Orlando Sanford International Airport Authority recently received two ANNIE awards; one for the most routes of any U.S. airport in the past 12 months that had been added and also the fastest growing U.S. airport in 2015 among airports having two to five million passengers. She also pointed out the airport had 13.5% growth and exceeded 2.5 million passengers.

-------

Commissioner Carey announced that they will finally be getting a new student center at Seminole State College and the groundbreaking for that will be at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 1, at the Sanford/Lake Mary campus. She noted it has been a long time coming and they have had the student center since the college actually got started.

-------

Commissioner Careys ex parte communication was received and filed.

District 3

Commissioner Constantine reported that he attended an MPO meeting on June 11; and at that time, he also had a meeting with the new director of LYNX. Commissioner Constantine stated he shares in Commissioner Henley's enthusiasm for the new director. He advised that he broached the subject with him of the station that the County would like to reevaluate there at Jai‑Alai. The director was very supportive of the potential of being able to do that.

-------

Commissioner Constantine reported that he attended the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council on June 18. He stated their lease is up at their current location and staff has proposed several moves. One of the proposals and in discussion with Mr. Barley is housing the Regional Planning Council in the offices of the MPO. Commissioner Carey remarked that they used to be together. Commissioner Constantine advised that over the course of the last number of months Mr. Barley has been very supportive of that. He discussed the support for the move and pointed out that potentially it would save both organizations over $50,000. Commissioner Dallari noted that he serves on the MPO board and they have not discussed rent yet. Commissioner Constantine agreed they have not but that Mr. Barely has discussed what he felt would be fair in discussions. Commissioner Dallari stated that what Mr. Barley may think is fair and what the MPO board may think is fair are two different things.

-------

Commissioner Constantine reported that the Historical Society met, and they are still very much in support of trying to find a location at Five Points. He stated he knows that Ms. Guillet is trying to work with them. They have been offered a display or exhibit of antique buggies and are looking for a place and a location. Commissioner Constantine advised that he believes that the County Manager has said the location that the Historical Society would like may not be appropriate but he would very much be in support of the County finding somewhere else for them to use because opportunities like this don't come along all of the time.

Commissioner Dallari agreed that opportunities like this do not come along that often but added that they need to make sure that it is the right location. Commissioner Carey remarked that it was a very vast collection and she suggested that they pick out some of the finest representative buggies of the various time periods to put in the Historical Museum area and maybe he sells off the rest of this collection.

-------

Commissioner Constantine reported on the Central Florida Zoo meeting that he attended and stated the Zoo was very encouraged by the meeting they had with the Board and were very impressed with the cooperation that the County Commission gave them.

-------

Commissioner Constantine congratulated the City of Casselberry for receiving an honorable mention from MPO for the Clear Air award and added that Wekiva Island got the major award. He announced that CALNO will be meeting on June 1 in Sanford and he will keep the Board informed of that. The Wekiva Wild and Scenic River Commission is also meeting on June 1.

-------

Commissioner Constantine stated, as discussed at the last meeting, he would like to request that the Lyman Boys track and field team, who won the state award, be given a resolution for their victory. No objections were voiced.

District 1

Motion by Commissioner Dallari, seconded by Commissioner Carey, to appoint Kevin Spolski to the Seminole County Industrial Development Authority (SCIDA).

Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

-------

Commissioner Dallari stated he did speak to Harry Barley at MetroPlan in regard to the work that is being done at Oxford Road and the Commissioner wants to make sure County staff is coordinating with them because there may be available dollars for some of those items, like planning for complete streets and some of the pedestrian stuff that they all talked about.

-------

Commissioner Dallari noted that CR 419 goes through downtown Chuluota and there is a curve there. He reported there have been several incidents where there have been some high‑rate‑of‑speed accidents with pedestrians; and he would like to ask the Board to instruct staff to do a safety study for that area to look at alternatives to try to make that corridor safer. He knows there has been some money set aside in the one‑cent sales tax for intersection improvements as well as the light by Mills Road. He stated he wants to make sure that they are doing it the right way and believes a safety study would be appropriate at this time.

Commissioner Carey stated before, when they had CR 419 on the list and then took it off, one of the things that staff was directed to look at at that time were some safety issues in addition to the intersection improvements and things that needed to happen. Commissioner Dallari stated they just need to revisit that, and he just wants to make sure that the Board is on the same page in asking staff to do that. Commissioner Carey stated part of what they asked staff to look at before in addition to turn lanes and those types of things was safety improvements. Commissioner Dallari pointed out that some of the staff members are no longer here.

Chairman Horan stated they have done this in several instances with regards to collector roads through the rural areas where they are looking at surgical traffic safety improvements, turn lanes, graduation of the curves on certain roadways. He pointed out that SR 46 was another one. Commissioner Dallari stated he believes the whole area needs to be looked at. There is a little bit at McCulloch Road. There is CR 419 and Brumley Road. He remarked that Brumley Road is turning into a racetrack. He reiterated that from a safety standpoint, they need to look at it.

Chairman Horan stated he shares Commissioner Dallari's concern; and with the desire that they want to continue to have limited access, they have to look at safety improvements and do it in a surgical way. Commissioner Dallari stated CR 419, Brumley and Mills all need to be looked at. Chairman Horan asked if there was consensus for staff to work on that and report back later. No objections were voiced.

CHAIRMANS REPORT

Chairman Horan stated they had, as part of the Consent Agenda this morning, a Resolution congratulating the Oviedo High School girls soccer team. On February 6, they won the 5-A State Soccer Championship making it their third state title in six years. He stated the State Champs are Laura Day, Samantha Blanford, Brianna Waggoner, Erin Mikalsen, Jacquelyn Zipay, Tesa Simmons, Maddie Bozzacco, Andrea Maskiell, Alex Nowak, Avery Nowak, Kenna Hildenbrand, Sarah Preston, Sara Carbone, Payton Grewal, Carly Mitchell, Madison Allen, Reghan Massie, Camille Copperthite, Sydney Brown, Aly Derose, and Katie Edwards and congratulated them.

-------

Chairman Horan confirmed with the Board that they received a list (copy not received and filed) of the follow‑up items (Mellonville Avenue, Grace Lake, I‑4 rest areas, Apopka/Forest City mailing address) and noted there have been reports on the Vietnam Traveling Memorial and also Jetta Point. He reminded everybody that one of the two major fund raisings for Boys and Girls Clubs in the county will be coming up on Saturday, June 4, at 6:30 p.m. It is the Be Great Gala and will be at the Alaqua County Club. He thanked John and Valli Ritenour for hosting the event. All proceeds benefit the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Florida and tickets are available at begreatgala.com. Chairman Horan relayed a story that emphasized why this organization is so important and why they support these community organizations.

-------

Chairman Horan referred to Item 10 on the Submissions List and discussed the quick action he got on his letter to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection concerning closing the gap in the Cross Seminole trail. He also submitted a copy of the Florida Economic Outlook Report (copy not received and filed) and stated he found this to be particularly illuminating as it relates to certain things they are doing in Seminole County and he hopes the Commissioners will read the report.

-------

Chairman Horan stated he has been advised they are moving the four‑laning of CR 46 from CR 426 to Lake Mary Boulevard to Number 20 on the MPO list, moving it from Number 7 in order to jump start SR 434. He stated he has no problems with that. Chairman Horan remarked they have convinced the State and the local and regional people that surgical traffic improvement along SR 46 will work better than the expansion of the laning in that particular area. That is what the residents want and that is what appears to work best.

-------

Chairman Horan announced that the County Manager has told him they have the one‑cent sales tax signs going up. There are 25 of them going up next week. Commissioner Carey suggested that all of the ones that are still standing should be straightened up or replaced. Ms. Guillet stated they are going to refurbish the ones that they have got. Chairman Horan remarked that it is important to tell the people what the tax dollars are doing.

-------

Chairman Horan stated he is very happy to report that the Seminole County Public Schools workshop is set for June 28, which is the second BCC meeting in June. That workshop will take place right after the morning BCC session and he hopes they will keep the morning session very, very light so they can get going with the School Board quickly so they can get done in an hour and a half. He reported that they have received notice from the School Board that at their leadership conference on July 28, the Board will be receiving the leadership award from the Seminole County Public Schools this year. Discussion ensued with regard to the date of the leadership conference as to whether it is the 28th of June or July. Commissioner Dallari stated he has been scheduled to go to a NARC conference for the past several months and will not be present at the June 28 BCC meeting. He stated he will be in Salt Lake City representing MetroPlan. Chairman Horan clarified that the date of the leadership conference where they will get the award is July 28.

-------

Chairman Horan reported that they have had a number of productive and informative meetings this year with Mayors and Managers and have reviewed a variety of topics. He advised that most timely is, as they have read in the papers, the Uber initiative that was initiated first by Altamonte Springs and now is being followed up by initiatives from several of the cities located in Seminole County and also Maitland. There were interesting disclosures at the last Mayors and Managers meeting about how you reach these deals with Uber. Uber is not particularly interested in partnering or sharing its technology or licensing its technology. Chairman Horan explained that the way these partnerships work is basically you pay Uber to expand their ridership. They will put a discount within a particular area if you have a promo code but you will pay them for the discount, which doesn't really solve the mobility problems in those sectors where they are going to have to partner with someone for van pools and stuff like that which opens up the possibility of Mears and LYNX.

Chairman Horan stated they will see in the pilot programs from the various cities exactly what the ridership is as they try to get people into the habit of getting out of their cars and using an alternative means of transportation to solve the last mile problem. He pointed out that they will probably have to look at some of the other technologies that are out there with transportation network companies or organizations that have a different business plan and are more into mobility. Commissioner Dallari confirmed with Chairman Horan that they can't get a report on the "who went where." Commissioner Carey stated if you can get off the train and have somebody there to pick you up, she thinks that is the point. There are probably some privacy issues. She pointed out they will know whether it is working or not based on the chatter. Further discussion was had regarding Uber.

Chairman Horan stated in terms of the Countys own mobility solutions, they are probably going to have to look at Mears, LYNX, or some of the others. Commissioner Dallari stated they have had conversations with Mears with MetroPlan regarding van pooling and the same type of technology because the app already exists. Chairman Horan stated there is the FLEX bus technology as well. He pointed out that things are moving forward and there are really good discussions with the cities. He stated Kittleson will be coming back with a deliverable on mobility fees and he has challenged certain members of the staff to come up with legislative changes they might need in order to use these mobility fees or whatever they come up, the legislative changes they need in order to fund these mobility solutions.

ITEMS FOR FUTURE AGENDA

John Casselberry, P.O. Box 2, addressed the Board to discuss recycling and garbage pickup in his neighborhood. Mr. Casselberry stated that it seems to him that the garbage collection people drive on one side of the road and pick up everything on one side of the road and then go back around and repeat the same mileage, picking up on just one side of the road. He advised it looks inefficient but it may be safer than the collection people crossing the road to get the garbage on both sides. He stated it looks like they are doubling their mileage even though they are not picking up any more than driving the other way. Commissioner Carey confirmed with Mr. Casselberry that he lives within the City of Casselberry. She explained that his question is a City of Casselberry question, not the County. Mr. Casselberry stated they have more than one collector in town. He suggested if the collection trucks use the same thing that the school buses use, where they pull the stop signs out so the traffic is stopped and their guys can go over to both sides of the road, they wont have to backtrack the mileage at all. He believes that is something the County might be able to put in the garbage contracts so the trucks can use that kind of signage. Commissioner Carey stated the haulers for the county, at least in her neighborhood, pick up both sides of the road as they are going down the road; they dont come through twice. Mr. Casselberry also discussed the hours of operation for the garbage haulers.

Speaker Request Form was received and filed.

-------

There being no further business to come before the Board, the Chairman declared the meeting adjourned at 2:36 p.m., this same date.
