Districts 1, 2, 3 and 5 voted AYE.
Agenda Item #28 – A-2839-16
Pamela Lynch, Business Development Manager, addressed the Board to present a request to approve a Jobs Growth Incentive (JGI) Funding Agreement with Deloitte Consulting. Ms. Lynch announced that Charlie Ruby, Managing Director and Site Selector with Deloitte; Dr. Tom Tomerlin, City of Lake Mary; and Casey Barnes, Orlando Economic Development Commission, are in attendance today. She gave a brief background of Deloitte Consulting and pointed out that the Lake Mary facility is concentrated on IT consulting services with an emphasis on hiring computer science professionals.
Ms. Lynch explained that in April of 2015, Deloitte was awarded a JGI for the creation of 1,000 new jobs to be created over a four-year period. They have just approached the 1,000-employee mark and have done so well before the end of 2018. She reviewed the specifics of this project as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum and emphasized this project will bring 850 new jobs to Seminole County with an average annual wage of $70,000.
Ms. Lynch stated this funding request is for $1,200 per job equating to a total award of $1,020,000. The City of Lake Mary City Commission approved to equally participate at their November 3, 2016 meeting providing for a funding split of $510,000 for each jurisdiction. Staff is recommending approval of this item.
With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke regarding this item and public input was closed.
Under discussion, Commissioner Carey stated that in talking with representatives from Deloitte, one of the comments made was that they sought to expand here because Seminole County has a great education system, an educated workforce, and the ability to train the workforce.
At Commissioner Carey’s request, Charlie Ruby addressed the Board to discuss the site selection process. He explained that the opportunity to create an additional 850 jobs is tied in directly to the availability of labor and the relationships with the university. Discussion ensued.
Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Dallari, to approve: (1) the Jobs Growth Incentive (JGI) Program Agreement between Deloitte Consulting LLP and Seminole County, providing an incentive of $1,200 per job, for a total of $1,020,000, to be split evenly with the City of Lake Mary, for the creation of eight hundred and fifty (850) new jobs; and (2) the Jobs Growth Incentive (JGI) Program Interlocal Funding Agreement with the City of Lake Mary.
Districts 1, 2, 3 and 5 voted AYE.
Agenda Item #29 – A-2829-16
Liz Parkhurst, Building Division, addressed the Board to present a request to appeal the certified costs incurred in the amount of $6,096.27 to abate the unoccupied structure located at 3248 Main Street, Sanford, and consider the Applicant’s request to not impose a lien against the property for this or any other amount. Ms. Parkhurst presented the request as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum and advised that the hearing today is at the request of Barbara Witherspoon, one of the property owners. Staff is recommending that the Board deny the request.
Barbara Witherspoon, 2331 Randall Street, addressed the Board to state that after the property was partially burned, it was left standing, which she felt was a safety issue. She advised that she was unable to do much about it because she could not afford to; but it did concern her greatly for more than a year. Ms. Witherspoon questioned that since she is only part owner of the property, is she solely responsible for the $6,000, which is now due.
Mr. Applegate explained that if the Board imposes a lien, the lien attaches to the real property so there is no bifurcation. He cautioned the County can’t address the issue of who is responsible. Commissioner Carey discussed the property being a public nuisance and safety issue. She stated the lien will be on the property; and at whatever point in time the property is sold, the lien will have to be settled. It is not that Ms. Witherspoon must pay the lien today. Ms. Witherspoon asked if the lien would affect her credit. Mr. Applegate stated he would be happy to sit down with Ms. Witherspoon to discuss any issues she has. Chairman Horan suggested Ms. Witherspoon consult with Mr. Applegate after the meeting if she has any questions concerning the mechanics of how the process works.
With regard to public participation, no one else in the audience spoke regarding this item and public input was closed.
Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Constantine, to deny the Applicant’s request to reduce the certified costs incurred in the amount of $6,096.27 to abate the unoccupied structure located at 3248 Main Street, Sanford; deny the Applicant’s request to not impose a lien against the property for this amount; approve the imposition of a lien for the certified costs of $6,096.27; and authorize the Chairman to execute the Release of Lien upon payment in full; Findings of Fact, Conclusions of Law, and Order Imposing Lien for Cost of Public Nuisance Abatement regarding Parcel I.D. #33-19-31-300-0810-0000, 3248 Main Street, Latrell Barfield and Barbara Witherspoon.

Districts 1, 2, 3 and 5 voted AYE.
SKYWAY BEARDALL PD REZONE/Dana Boyte
Agenda Item #31 – A-2853-426
Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider a Rezone from A-1 (Agriculture) to PD (Planned Development) for a residential townhome development on approximately 13.96 acres, located on the east side of Skyway Drive, approximately 300 feet south of Lake Mary Boulevard, Dana Boyte, received and filed.
Brian Walker, Planning & Development Division, reviewed the request as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum. He advised the development is proposed within the Avigation Easement Boundary for the Sanford Airport. However, the current Development Order and backup state “the developer agrees that an avigation easement, in a form acceptable to the Sanford Airport Authority, will be recorded before issuance of a County building permit for any residential development.” The verbiage has been changed to state, “in a form acceptable to the County Attorney’s Office” instead of the Sanford Airport Authority.
Mr. Walker noted that staff recommends approval of the request. Dana Boyte, on behalf of the Applicant, addressed the Board to state they agree with staff’s recommendation.
In regard to the western boundary of the proposed site along Skyway Drive, Commissioner Carey said she noticed the setback is only 10 feet along that boundary. She would like, as they are getting into the final engineering, for them to consider a heavier landscape buffer or something along there.
Commissioner Carey mentioned that because of the impact to Lake Jesup, Kentucky Street has been kind of a cut off area and they have tried to transition down in density towards Lake Jesup, and she believes this project is in line with that.
Georgann Harman, 3257 E. Lake Mary Boulevard, addressed the Board to state her property abuts the subject property to the east. She has a horse farm with 11 horses that are not saddle broken and they are not real people friendly. She wonders what type of fence they will put up between her property and this development because she is concerned about the safety of people and children that might try to get to the horses. Commissioner Carey confirmed that Ms. Harman’s property was already fenced for the horses and stated according to the preliminary plan, there is just going to be a swale and landscaping along that border; there will not be an additional fence. She noted there is nothing in the Land Development Code that requires them to build a fence or wall to separate the two properties. Ms. Harman wondered about posting “No Trespassing” signs and Bryant Applegate, County Attorney, advised that it is legal to post those on her own property. Ms. Boyte stated she will advise her client that there are some additional agricultural issues that need to be considered.
Commissioner Dallari asked whether the swale they are talking about is a separate tract or just an easement. Mr. Walker responded that it is Tract C. Commissioner Dallari pointed out that that will give the adjacent property owner a little more protection.

Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Dallari, to adopt Ordinance #2016-38 enacting a Rezone from A-1 (Agriculture) to PD (Planned Development) and approve the associated Development Order and Master Development Plan for approximately 13.96 acres, located on the east side of Skyway Drive, approximately 300 feet south of Lake Mary Boulevard, as described in the proof of publication; Dana Boyte, Applicant.
Districts 1, 2, 3 and 5 voted AYE.
TRANSMITTAL OF OVIEDO BOAT AND RV STORAGE LSFLU
MAP AMENDMENT AND REZONE/Wilken Property Management, LLC
Agenda Item #32 – PH-2016-469
Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider transmittal of a Large Scale Future Land Use Map Amendment from Low Density Residential to Planned Development and a Rezone from A-1 (Agriculture) to PD (Planned Development) for a vehicle storage yard on approximately 15.83 acres, located on the north side of Slavia Road, approximately one-half mile east of Red Bug Lake Road, Wilken Property Management LLC, received and filed.
Matt Davidson, Planning & Development Division, addressed the Board and presented Item #32 as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum. He advised that the Planning & Zoning Commission recommended approval and staff also recommends approval of the transmittal.
With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to the transmittal, and public input was closed.
Commissioner Carey noted the Development Order says there will be a six-foot sidewalk along Slavia Road because it is a collector road, but the preliminary Master Development Plan shows a five-foot sidewalk along there. Ms. Davidson advised that it should be a six-foot sidewalk along Slavia Road and they will get that corrected.
Commissioner Carey confirmed since it will be a storage facility that it will be fenced. She asked what type of fencing they are planning to use and Mr. Davidson replied the Applicant is proposing a chain link fence. He noted they will have significant landscape buffering behind the fencing. Commissioner Carey noted it is heavily wooded on three sides but she would like to see at least a coated chain link fence across the front to make it disappear against the landscaping, either black or green in color.
Commissioner Carey questioned since this is an area that is 100% in the flood zone, whether there will be something posted on the property to let people know that. J.R. Ball with JRB Civil Engineering addressed the Board to state the owner of the property has advised that he will be happy to post the property.
Commissioner Dallari confirmed with Mr. Davidson that there is an FP&L easement through this property and asked how that would work with this rezone. Mr. Davidson explained there is a 110-foot Florida Power & Light transmission easement located across the subject property.
Mr. Ball stated this property is in Flood Plain A, which means that it has not been determined as to what the final elevation needs to be, but they intend to pursue that and figure out what that is. Also, a canal clips the northwest corner of the subject property. He added the other issue is that the sidewalk is 5 feet, not 6 feet. They are dedicating 10 feet of property for the widening of the road and they agreed to put in a sidewalk as part of that dedication. Chairman Horan asked that they get that clarified since it is in the Development Order. Commissioner Carey mentioned that because it is an arterial urban major collector designation that the Code calls for it to be a 6-foot sidewalk.
Kim Fisher, Development Review Engineering, addressed the Board to state the Code actually states 6 feet for collector and arterial, and 5 feet for local; however, former staff in Public Works worked out with the Applicant that as long as they gave the 10-foot right-of-way dedication that they would entertain a 5-foot section in that area. Commissioner Carey questioned if they build a 5-foot sidewalk in front of the subject property, whether they will then require other properties to build a 6-foot sidewalk, which is the issue when they start being inconsistent with what the Code says.
Ms. Guillet suggested that if Mr. Ball and his client are willing, that the Board direct staff to work this out with them to resolve the issue as they do site plan review so they are consistent throughout the corridor.
With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to Items #32, and public input was closed.
Motion by Commissioner Dallari, seconded by Commissioner Carey, to authorize transmittal of a proposed Ordinance enacting a Large Scale Future Land Use Map Amendment from Low Density Residential to Planned Development, and a proposed Ordinance enacting a Rezone from A-1 (Agriculture) to PD (Planned Development) to State and regional review agencies, and the associated Master Development Plan and Development Order, on 15.83 acres, located on the north side of Slavia Road, approximately one-half mile east of Red Bug Lake Road, as described in the proof of publication; Wilken Property Management LLC, Applicant.
Districts 1, 2, 3 and 5 voted AYE.
EAST LAKE DRIVE PD REZONE/Strong Intergroup Corp.
Item #33 – PH-2016-468
Proof of publication calling for a public hearing to consider a Rezone from R-1AA (Single-Family Dwelling) to PD (Planned Development) for a 31-lot, single-family residential subdivision on approximately 9.46 acres, located on the southwest side of East Lake Drive, approximately 300 feet south of Center Drive, Strong Intergroup Corp., received and filed.
Chairman Horan confirmed this item has been pulled from the agenda. Ms. Guillet advised the request was withdrawn by the Applicant.
Meloney Lung, Assistant County Manager, addressed the Board to present the 2017 State and Federal Legislative Priorities (received and filed). She advised that Alex Setzer, State Lobbyist, is in attendance to answer any questions. Ms. Lung reviewed Seminole County’s state legislative priorities for 2017.
Commissioner Carey suggested removing the item regarding the reimbursement for Juvenile Detention (DJJ) off the list since it is already being worked through. Upon inquiry by Commissioner Dallari, Mr. Setzer stated he knows it is a big priority and will continue to fight hard for it whether it is on the list or not. Commissioner Dallari then agreed they should remove it.
Commissioner Carey stated homelessness is still a big issue in the community in how it gets funded and how they deal with it. She added it is still a priority because adding the flexibility of state funding is an important part of how they will solve this problem. She expressed all the points on the state list should be listed as priorities and suggested they put them in the same order as the federal list.
Commissioner Dallari stated in addition to the list, he would like to see another more detailed sheet that shows what they are trying to accomplish for each priority. Also, in regard to Water Resources, he would like to see a list of projects for funding. Ms. Guillet stated they will get this done and talk to Mr. Setzer as to when they need to get this in. Commissioner Dallari reaffirmed they would like the federal and state lists to mirror each other. Ms. Guillet added that this will morph as the Session begins and they start to see what types of proposals are out there. Clearly, issues related to home rule and unfunded mandates will continue to be things they watch closely.
Commissioner Dallari reported that when they were setting their priorities during the MetroPlan meeting, their state lobbyist advised the Speaker is trying to limit how much you can lobby in Tallahassee. Mr. Setzer explained they are currently just proposed rules; the full body has to vote on them. Some of the restrictions would affect the County during certain times of the Session as to whether they can actually speak with the members on the House side. Upon inquiry by Commissioner Carey, Ms. Guillet explained they are proposing that they cannot spend public money on lobbyists. Commissioner Dallari added that would mean they would not pay expenses for Commissioners to go to Tallahassee to lobby. Mr. Setzer stated it is very much on the radar and they are paying attention to all of it. Chairman Horan stated he is here to represent the people of Seminole County and if the State wants to stop him or his lobbyist from petitioning the government appropriately for things that they need from the state government that that is not good government or consistent with their democratic republic principles.
Commissioner Constantine opined they are going to have the most active speaker than they have seen in a long time; Richard Corcoran is a very bright individual and he has a strong hold on the House of Representatives. He said there are certain things that are going to be extremely important to him. One of them is being recognized as someone, in the public’s eyes, who brought forth some ideas that are “good government.” He said he doesn’t believe this will ever pass because he doesn’t think the Senate would go for something like this.
Commissioner Constantine stated the Speaker is going to put a very tight restriction on the budget and he does not think the money being there for the juvenile detection reimbursement is a slam dunk; in fact, it is far from it.
Commissioner Constantine added another issue that will be extremely important to the Speaker will be incentives. He said the Speaker is absolutely opposed to incentives; it is a line in the sand for him and he fought the Governor on this as Budget Chairman; and now as Speaker, it is not going to go through. Commissioner Constantine expressed that one of the things they need to do with these incentive programs is to look out two to five years to ensure there is a no-penalty clause or more importantly, that the County will not be thrown back to have to pay for some of these incentives. He feels that Mr. Corcoran will be fighting this “tooth and nail” and one of the reasons is he is very closely aligned to the Americans for Prosperity. He believes this will potentially be a very contentious Session. The Commissioner stated he thinks that in regard to Fiscal Sustainability, they need to put some sort of guarantee that when dealing with incentives, they have a failsafe that they will not be held accountable for something that the State said they will pay for.
Commissioner Constantine stated in regard to the juvenile detention reimbursement that until they receive the $4 million or whatever they get, he would not remove that from the priority list. He expressed he believes they need to be very careful when it comes to the long-term fiscal viability of local government and home rule because it is going to be under attack this year in a number of different areas.
Commissioner Carey proposed they rename the “Fiscal Sustainability” bullet point to “Fiscal Responsibility” and put the DJJ issue under that.
Commissioner Dallari suggested adding “Volusia County” to SunRail Phase II North under the Transportation bullet point. He also thinks they should reach out to Osceola County, Volusia County and MetroPlan to let them know what they are doing.
Commissioner Carey stated they have been very fortunate to have had a champion for transportation in Central Florida in Congressman Mica. Now that he will not be there, she said she is not sure how well they will do in the transportation world at the federal level. They now have people without seniority representing them in Washington, and she would like to see them put a line in the list about “Ultimate I-4.” She opined it is important to stay on track and in the queue because if they lose the opportunity, all that traffic will be dumped back in at SR 434 and it will be a mess to Volusia County. She believes that should be added as one of their priorities on the federal list to keep the project moving forward. Commissioner Constantine agreed and stated he had mentioned that to Ms. Lung.
Commissioner Carey remarked a lot of the leadership is changing in Central Florida. She stated she thinks they need to have a discussion with Orange, Osceola, Volusia, and probably Lake and Brevard counties about their common priorities because they will get a lot more traction if they are all going in the same direction. Commissioner Dallari noted that about four years ago, the chairmen from Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Volusia counties went to Washington to talk about one project and he opined that needs to happen again. He added he thinks that project should be about SunRail Phase II north into Volusia County.
Commissioner Constantine stated they now have three freshman Congressmen. He noted they have all heard about the possibility that Congressman Mica may be chosen as Transportation Secretary. He believes, however, that Representative Daniel Webster will step up to the plate in regard to transportation. Even though he represents other counties, he is one that sees the desires and needs regionally and he would be the person the Commissioner said he would reach out to first and foremost when it comes to transportation needs here in Central Florida.
Chairman Horan confirmed they have the consensus of the Board to make the modifications discussed to the federal and state priorities lists.
Ms. Lung stated that Seminole County’s state legislative delegation has tentatively scheduled to be here on December 16th at 8:30 a.m. Ms. Guillet noted if the Board wants to, they can talk to the federal folks to see when they might be able to come for a work session to talk about how the dynamic has changed now, what their recommendations are with respect to moving forward, and what the Board’s interests are.
Chairman Horan advised Commissioner Henley will not be able to attend the Tourist Development Council meeting on Thursday. Commissioner Constantine stated he also has the Historical Commission meeting at the same time but since they are both held at the museum, he will try to go to both. Ms. Guillet noted they will definitely have staff people in attendance also. Chairman Horan asked the County Manager to take a look in the near term what Commissioner Henley may need some relief on and ensure they have coverage.
Commissioner Carey reported she presented the Veterans Day Resolution on Veterans Day at Sanford Memorial Park. She attended Undersheriff’s Steve Harriett’s retirement celebration. In addition, the celebration of Sheriff Eslinger’s career is on Saturday night. She noted she has received a lot of great feedback about renaming the road to Eslinger Way in honor of his years of dedication to the community.
Regarding the meeting of the Seminole County task force on homelessness, Commissioner Carey advised they are doing very well reaching their goals on the “chronic” and they still need to look at the families. Funding is a critical piece of that and how they go about it. There is a committee set up to figure out how to do private philanthropy to support this type of endeavor.
Commissioner Carey advised there is a vacant hotel that she has talked to both the County Manager and County Attorney about. She sees an opportunity to have the ability to house, even for just transitional housing, until they could get people into a house. She asked the County Manager to provide her with an update on this.
Mr. Guillet stated she agrees that the Seminole Action Board, which is the board that came out of the homelessness study specific to Seminole County, has made some great momentum. They were established and have been moving forward based on a grant from the County to Leadership Seminole about a year and a half ago. She advised that grant has termed out and the monies have been expended. She will be bringing to the next BCC meeting something to consider some additional funding in order to be able to continue with that effort because she feels they are really starting to pick up speed. She also thinks the Action Board will be a great funding partner for them once they really start their fundraising efforts. She noted Phil Mangano has been helping them and they would like to keep him engaged to assist the Action Board because he has been driving that momentum and has been a force behind this. Commissioner Carey added that Pastor Joel Hunter is on Seminole County’s board and is now the chairman of the regional board. Chairman Horan remarked they need to be mindful going forward as to whether they want to put larger amounts of philanthropy under the Central Florida Foundation (CFF) umbrella because they have certain restrictions in terms of what they can distribute. For example, they may want to use that for capital improvements, etc. so they may need to bifurcate their philanthropic funding in the future. Commissioner Carey noted when the County was raising money for the Heroes Memorial, they established an account so that people could make a tax-deductible contribution. She added that as they get started, it is good to put the money under CFF because they can leverage that money. She stated they need to talk about the different options and figure out the best way to go about this.
Commissioner Carey submitted her ex parte communications into the record.
Commissioner Dallari mentioned that Orange County will hold a public hearing on Lake Pickett North this evening and he will be attending that.
Commissioner Dallari reported the DOT received public input last night about the “Beyond the Ultimate” project. They only talked about half of it, which is Phases 2, 3 and 4. There was very little input regarding the southern piece which is south of Kirkman Road. He stated he asked questions about pedestrians and bicycles traveling east and west, and public safety, not just firefighters and paramedics but law enforcement, and no one has any answers.
Commissioner Dallari also noted FDOT plans on putting pond #300 inside of Grace Lake and he does not know how they would do that. Commissioner Carey added now that Grace Lake has healed itself, there is a lake on the other side of I-4. Commissioner Dallari stated another issue is there is a hill at the end of Northridge Drive, and when they widened I-4 about 15 years ago, they put trees on top of the hill for a sound buffer. Now FDOT wants to remove the trees and the hill and put in a retention pond which does not make any sense. He added he is perplexed about the whole project and would like to get a lot more information. He suggested they talk to DOT about briefing them. Ms. Guillet noted that it may be a good opportunity to hold a work session after January 1st. Commissioner Dallari mentioned that public input will be completed in December. Ms. Guillet said they will work with the DOT to see what they can arrange.
Commissioner Dallari noted that Commissioner Carey brought up another issue at the meeting and that is there are some intersections with “Texas U-turns.” They can get a lot more out of this by improving some of the signalization and potentially using ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) instead of putting in crazy U-turns. Commissioner Carey advised the DOT has carved out an area around Rinehart Road, at the request of Lake Mary, and said they would take that out and put in a separate project to put in these “Texas U-turns.” She doesn’t know why they would do that because you don’t need them if you can’t move the traffic through to get on the interstate. She stated that DOT is making decisions based on a request from the City of Lake Mary, who only controls one side of CR 46A because Sanford is on the other side. Unfortunately, the Sanford Mayor could not be there last night because they had a city commission meeting. Commissioner Carey stated they need to try ITS for reworking the lights; they need to look at the lighting sequence through the whole I-4 interchange from one side of CR 46A to the other, and at whether flashing yellow lights are an option. She opined there are a lot of things they can do before making this kind of investment in a silly intersection that doesn’t really even need to be there until the rest of the construction is done. Ms. Guillet pointed out that Jean Jreij, Public Works Director, has been working with the City of Lake Mary to try to coordinate and they also discussed bringing Sanford into the fold as well. Once they have a more definitive idea of where they want to go with that, they will bring it back to the Board because the staffs are working jointly. Commissioner Carey said she thinks they need to have the leadership of the County, Sanford and Lake Mary sit together because what they are proposing without all the rest of the improvements for a free flow of traffic on and off of the interstate makes absolutely no sense.
Commissioner Dallari requested they prepare a joint Resolution of Appreciation with Orange County. He said they have talked about Congressman John Mica being a champion for SunRail, Ultimate I-4, parts of major roads, the airport, and much more, and he feels it would be appropriate. He added they can also reach out to the City of Orlando’s mayor as well.
Commissioner Constantine reported at the last meeting of United Arts that they talked about the financial problems with the Mad Cow Theatre and how they are going to eliminate them from the overall funding until their structure has been put into place for proper control of their finances. A November 28th brainstorming session is scheduled to see what they can do in Seminole County to promote the arts.
Commissioner Constantine stated they had a public hearing at the Transportation Disadvantaged MPO on numerous improvements and things that are coming up.
Regarding their conversation about FDOT, Commissioner Constantine noted the good news is it is not financed anyway and they have a lot of time to work on it. He believes they have the time to give some real input into what their overall plan will be.
Commissioner Constantine pointed out that the Tourism meeting is being held here, in the 3rd Floor conference room. The Leadership Seminole is meeting on Friday. The CFRPC (Central Florida Regional Planning Council), both the executive and the regular board, will be meeting tomorrow in their new offices. The Florida Association of Counties is meeting in Orlando from the 30th through the 2nd to finalize their legislative priorities. The Sixth Annual Rotary Art, Craft and Wine Festival is in Altamonte Springs with the chili cook-off this weekend. The Wekiva River Commission will be on the 5th.
In regard to FDOT, Commissioner Carey stated that while they do have a lot of time on the “Beyond the Ultimate” project, the fact that they have been asked to pull Rinehart Road out of that project and move it forward is a problem that needs to be addressed right away. Commissioner Constantine noted he does understand that and he was talking about the bigger picture in the long-term during his report.
Chairman Horan stated he will be going to Tallahassee with a contingent of staff and the lobbyist to talk to the members of the Florida Communities Trust governing board. He knows staff has been working with DEP staff and hopefully they will get a promising result based upon the merits of the County’s application to switch the development restrictions from the Jetta Point property to the Rolling Hills property.
The Chairman advised that various letters went out to Mayor Jacobs asking for a meeting on the interlocal agreement and for public participation in regard to the 408 extension PD&E studies and public meetings.
As a follow-up to Commissioner Carey’s discussion on homelessness, Chairman Horan said they all attended the Soup Bowl dinner on the 29th at Pathways to Care. He met with the new director of the Central Florida Commission on Homelessness, Shelley Lauten. He noted they had wide-ranging discussions with regard to their next steps and what the Commission’s role will be with regard to facilitating the discussions on the new governing structure and how the new governing structure can be facilitated by whatever actions they take. There will be an executive committee meeting on December 14 and at that point, the Memorandum of Understanding that was drafted will probably be submitted to the jurisdictions for consideration and adoption.
Chairman Horan reported he also met with Mr. Mangano and a local affordable housing developer about affordable housing initiatives in the region and how they can be incentivized. The meeting also included Dr. Hunter. Chairman Horan proposed the Board ask staff to consider certain types of affirmative requirements they could place on residential developers with regard to participation in affordable housing. Ms. Guillet advised they do have incentives but they are not often taken advantage of. She stated they need to talk to some developers because there may be some things they are not doing that could be more effective. Orange County is also looking at this so they may be able to jointly talk about it. Chairman Horan confirmed the consensus of the Board is to have staff look at ways to raise awareness about incentives for affordable housing.
Chairman Horan expressed he had the honor to attend a reception for Jenny Simpson, an Olympic winner in the 1,500 meter. He noted she was very impressive and inspiring.
Chairman Horan stated he attended the Winter Springs Veterans Day event on Friday evening at their beautiful memorial.
In regard to the two rest areas on I-4, Chairman Horan stated there are discussions going on that were instigated by the information given to MPO Alliance by Commissioner Constantine. The discussions are between the developer and Volusia County representatives and some of the people at MetroPlan.
Chairman Horan reported there are two traffic problems in his district, and they are the stop light at SR 434 and Deleon Street, and also on Ronald Reagan Boulevard. Spates of accidents have occurred to the east of where the Reagan Center is going in. He advised staff is looking at those and traffic lights have been proposed for both of them, but the process is laborious so they need to facilitate that particular process.

Mr. Applegate passed the gavel to Commissioner Horan who resumed the position of Chairman.
Chairman Horan opened the floor to nominations for Vice Chairman and Commissioner Dallari nominated Commissioner Carey for Vice Chairman.
Chairman Horan closed the floor to nominations and announced that Commissioner Carey is Vice Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners for 2016/2017.
ITEMS FOR FUTURE AGENDA
Commissioner Constantine stated he thinks if they are going to look at affordable housing and the incentives that maybe they can piggyback on the Front Porch Florida legislation. They have right now two very prominent affordable housing companies that are building projects. Jonathan Wolfe and his program, and Picerne Construction are both doing this in the Altamonte Springs area. He added both are doing phenomenal jobs on their projects.
Commissioner Constantine noted that he had mentioned to the County Attorney and Deputy County Manager that since they have to bring back the greyhound racing ordinance in March and they were looking at a change in regard to dog licensing that they should look at the overall aspect of dog licensing in Seminole County. Commissioner Dallari advised the County has a company that handles that and there is a database.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the Chairman declared the meeting adjourned at 3:20 p.m., this same date.
