†††† Bill Wharton, Planning & Development, addressed the Board to present the item as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum.† Mr. Wharton stated the Board may recall, they had the Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) language for the SunRail stations, so staff did take out and put back what used to be called the Energy Conservation Overlay; they are now calling it the Centers and Corridors Overlay.† Staff is looking to continue to work with the cities on some type of TOD or see if they can meet some common ground for those areas around the Sanford and Altamonte SunRail stations.† Mr. Wharton discussed the changes made to the definitions in the Implementation element and noted those changes have been made since transmittal and are in the Agenda Memorandum.† He noted staff recommends approval.† Chairman Horan confirmed with Mr. Wharton that all of the issues addressed in the Objections, Recommendations, and Comments (ORC) Report were addressed in the changes.†
†††† With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to Item #23 and public input was closed.
†††† Commissioner Carey stated staff has done an excellent job _#ď1_of in corporating and up dating some of the rules and _#°1_reg ulations .† She e xplained out of 7 counties and 86 cities that participated in ď How Shall _%_We Grow,Ē Semin ole County is the only entity that actually a dopted the language into their Comprehensive Plan .† The Centers and Corridor s c oncept is _#ō1__#Ŕ1_directly out of the_#‹1_ ď How Shall We GrowĒ document, and she said it was good to see some of _#„1_tha t put _#Ś1_back in .† She opined t he addressing of Complete Streets throughout the community for safety and other things is important.
†††† Commissioner Carey explained e very community has an _$"1_idea about what they want _$'1_to see around the ir Sun R ail station but they may vary from jurisdiction to jurisd iction, and she looks forward to a continuation of that discussion_$>1_.† She stated in preparation for that discussion, she would like to know if staff could ask the cities and countywide what their maximum densities are that they allow and what has ac_$q1_tually been b uilt in their cities; _"_she would also like to know the same for the County. She opined they could understand it better if t hey had _$Ę1_real- li f e examples so when this discussion comes back to the Board in the future, t hey are b etter prepared to have an in formed discussion .
†††† Chairman Horan reminded there has been a series of good workshops this year regarding transportation and mobility, which city representatives were invited to, and those discussions continue to be ongoing.† He explained there has been some discussion at the Mayors and Managers meeting with regard to not only TOD but how to transition densities in various areas that are contiguous between the cities and the counties and between the cities themselves.† Chairman Horan agreed with Commissioner Carey that it would be useful to have the information she requested especially with regard to how that density was set up and whether it was set up before or after the infrastructure was put in.† Commissioner Dallari stated the only t hing he would add in regard to the TOD information is that when the r ail is looked at, the surrounding road network should be looked at as well.
†††† Commissioner Constantine thanked staff for working together with those communities, taking out the _%_T ODs as indicated back in November, and also the acknowledgement that there is still some disagreement a s far as densities. He stated b y continu ing the dialog between the cities, he thinks that will lead to a consistent policy and a framework for proceeding so that they have coordinated planning and the densities are consistent with each other.† However, he knows that there are still some cities that have concerns about some of the long-term interest that they have as opposed to the County, so it does e veryone well if t hey continue to work together.† Chairman Horan discussed how if densities are set too high for a particular piece of land, you end up blighting it rather than trying to develop it to its highest and best use.† He opined giving themselves some flexibility on these plans is a good way to go.†
†††† Commissioner Carey pointed out how all of the SunRail stations are in unique situations and every one of them is different.† Some are right in the heart of a downtown, like Lake Mary and Longwood; where Sanford is sitting out in the _%_County; and Altamonte is a little away from the downtown.† She explained t here needs to be a pretty good range and t he Board needs to understand what that is.† She stated so metimes people have things in their plan that are never built because financially it doesn't make sense from the development side.† Commissioner Carey reiterated she would like to be as well versed as possible and s he would like staff to get the requested information and share it with the Board.
†††† Commissioner Dallari stated a big issue with SunRail is_%_ Positive Train _#_Control (PTC ) and there i s some in her ent infra structure that needs to go in.† He asked how that would affect development in tho se core areas because there's going to have to be changes to fences and roads and a lot of other things that may have to happen.
†††† Commissioner Carey _(‹1_stated the SunRail maintenance facility was built right behind an existing residential subdivision and it has been a huge issue for the residents that live along there because SunRail starts early in the morning doing maintenance work on the cars.† The DOT tried to work closely with the residents that live along there in the Preserve at Lake Monroe, but nothing they have done has solved that issue yet.† If a residential subdivision is developed next to an existing train track, you knew that you were going to be living next to a train station; in this case, the d evelopment was there before the SunRail maintenance yard was there.† She added there are certainly some things that need to be considered in the long-range plan for SunRail.
†††† Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Henley, to adopt Ordinance #2017-20 amending the Introduction, Future Land Use, Housing, Intergovernmental Coordination, Recreation and Open Space, and Transportation Elements of the Seminole County Comprehensive Plan, as described in the proof of publication.
†††† †Districts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 voted AYE.

†††† Liz Parkhurst, Building Division, addressed the Board to present the item as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum.† Ms. Parkhurst stated pursuant to Chapter 168 of the Seminole County Code, notice of this hearing was received by the record property owner Dan Collins Heirs.† She noted Building Official Paul Watson is available for questions.†
†††† Commissioner Carey stated there are several homes in her district that are on the Countyís list and ďradar screenĒ trying to get through all of the legal things that need to be done in order to get those taken care of.† She understands it is time consuming especially when there are a lot of heirs involved, but homes like this one that are still semi-standing are a hot bed for crime.† The faster staff can move these through the process, the greater the community appreciates that.† She asked staff to stay on this because it does make a big difference in the communities.†
†††† With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to Item #24 and public input was closed.
†††† Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Dallari, to adopt appropriate Resolution #2017-R-90 issuing an Order to declare the existence of a Public Nuisance at 1st Avenue, Sanford, Parcel #33-19-31-506-0100-007B; to require corrective action by July 26, 2017; and to authorize necessary corrective action by the County in the event the nuisance is not abated by the record owners, as described in the proof of publication.

3008 E. 20th Street, Sanford
Agenda Item #25 Ė A-3500-17
†††† Liz Parkhurst, Building Division, addressed the Board to present the request to declare the existence of a Public Nuisance at 3008 E. 20th Street, Sanford, as outlined in the Agenda Memorandum.† Ms. Parkhurst stated pursuant to Chapter 168 of the Seminole County Code, a Summons to Appear along with the Notice of Determination was served to Frankie M. Warren, record property owner, by the Seminole County Sheriffís Office on April 11, 2017.† She noted Building Official Paul Watson is available for questions.
†††† Commissioner Carey requested a picture of the structure be shown (included in Agenda Memorandum) and pointed out a shed behind the house.† She noted the shed is in pretty good condition and there is a semi-built block structure, a few feet tall in front of the shed with possible wood or trash inside of it and asked if the semi-built block structure in front of the shed would be demolished as well.† Paul Watson, Building Official, addressed the Board and answered at this time, it is just the house itself but staff can add the other structure if it is the Boardís wish.† Commissioner Carey opined the storage shed appears to be in perfectly fine condition.† She voiced her concerns in regard to the block structure which included it falling on top of children or being used as a burn pit, and Mr. Watson stated he did not go on the property to look at it.†
†††† Frankie Warren, property owner, addressed the Board and stated she is in the process of finding out how to get a dumpster out to the property.† She explained the little structure in the back, in front of the shed, used to be an outside bathroom.† She has tried to knock it down and ended up putting branches in it, but they have never burned anything in there.† Ms. Warren stated she is in the process of getting it torn down before July 26th.† She mentioned a $200 demolition permit.† Mr. Watson responded that is the Countyís common fee, but the Board can waive it if that is their wish.† Commissioner Carey asked what the purpose of a demolition permit is.† Mr. Watson answered to ensure that the structure is taken down properly, disposed of properly and that thereís no electric or water.† Ms. Warren responded the electric has been gone for three years and there hasnít been water in the house for years.† She stores some of her personal stuff in the shed.† Mr. Watson asked Ms. Warren if she has a septic tank.† Ms. Warren answered she had one but it dried up eight or nine years ago.† Mr. Watson informed her it would need to be taken care of also.† Commissioner Carey explained the septic tank has to be abandoned in place and demolished properly.
†††† Commissioner Carey asked staff what it costs the County to demolish the facility.† She explained the County has done this in many places where the property owner did not have the ability to do it, and the County put a lien against the property until such time that the property is sold and then the County gets repaid for that.† Mr. Watson answered it is around $3,000 to $5,000; and since this is a smaller house, it would be on the lower end.† Ms. Warren discussed quotes she has received for dumpsters.† Commissioner Carey explained as Ms. Warren gets her bids, she just wants her to know what the average range is running.† Commissioner Carey stated she would be willing to waive the fee for the demolition permit but she would like the demolition permit to be obtained so the proper inspections are done.†
†††† Chairman Horan clarified if Ms. Warren lets the County go forward with the demolition, it will cost $3,000 to $5,000, which will then be a lien on the property.† He urged Ms. Warren to make sure whoever does the demolition work knows the full scope of the work and that it involves the septic tank, because she may find it will be cheaper to let the County do it and keep a lien on the property.† Commissioner Carey asked if Ms. Warren could have the property demolished by July 26th and she answered yes.
†††† Commissioner Constantine asked Ms. Warren if she understands that a lien means she doesnít have to pay it right away, and the County gets the money back only when the property is sold.† Ms. Guillet added staff will be happy to work with Ms. Warren as she is putting together a list to get her bids for demolition.† Chairman Horan reiterated how liens work.
†††† With regard to public participation, no one in the audience spoke in support or in opposition to Item #25 and public input was closed.
†††† Motion by Commissioner Carey, seconded by Commissioner Dallari, to adopt appropriate Resolution #2017-R-91 issuing an Order to declare the existence of a Public Nuisance at 3008 E. 20th Street, Sanford, Parcel #32-19-31-501-0000-0010; to require corrective action by July 26, 2017; to authorize necessary corrective action by the County in the event the nuisance is not abated by the record owners; and to waive the fee for the demolition permit, but not the requirements for the inspections that would be required from the demolition permit.

†††† Ms. Guillet stated there was a presentation this morning recognizing Code Enforcement Officer Week.† While that presentation focused on the Sheriffís Office, there are a number of County employees who are also Code Enforcement Officers who work in great partnership with the Sheriffís Office.† Ms. Guillet took this time to recognize those employees.†

Commissioner † Each landowner received an amount of money for any perceived improvement and they also received an amount of money in order to provide landscaping on their property.† He explained the wall is on private property so the County has no area in which i t could be expected to add trees and so forth s imilar to the portion of Winter Springs on the same SR 424 expanse.† He also noted a complaint regarding the wall not being straight and having an indentation because the landowner did not want the trees cut down, but now they want the wall straightened out.† Also, they want to stop and prevent any cut through on some of those streets .† Commissioner Henley stated Mr. Gerhardt noted the r etention pond that the DOT has across from the 4 Rivers shopping plaza and how it is not landscaped.† Henley discussed the history between the DOT and the landowners in that area.
†††† Commissioner Carey _9c1_clarified each of the residents that were impacted where the D OT acquired the land got a landscape allowance _9Ā1_stipend that they were supposed _9ą1_to use to plant their own _9Ć2_trees or landscaping; and if they didn't do it, then shame on them .

†††† Ms. Guillet informed the Board there has been tremendous interest especially by the HOAs because the price is so good.† She stressed it is on a first-come, first-served basis and staff is concerned that t hey may have more interest than t hey have cans, but of course the County will reinvest the funds that they get from the purchase of the cans.† Commissioner Constantine asked in regard t o rather large HOAs, if the County needs 100% of those units to agree to use bear-resistant cans to actually receive them.† Ms. Guillet answered t he expectation is that there wi ll be _@.1_a requirement placed in the H O A documents that would require everybody in perpetuity to _@B1_keep bear-resistant cans_@E1_.† S he clarified it would be whatever percentage or majority the HOA documents require.† Commissioner Carey opined if a whole section of a large HOA wanted bear-resistant cans, she would say that certainly should be allowable.

†††† Commissioner Dallari explained for the past year and a half, MetroPlan, with their national organization, has been working very diligently with other states regarding the rule making from the DOT.† The rule making of the DOT in Washington has been requiring MetroPlan and COGs (Council of Governments) nationally to expand their regions with other MetroPlan and CO_AŅ1_Gs transportation organizations that are in urban areas.† That would require MetroPlan Orlando to include Lake and parts of Volusia County.† Over the past year and a half, theyíve been working with various groups and that has now been reversed, so that is no longer required.
†††† Commissioner Dallari stated t hey have been working most diligently at MetroPlan on Complete Streets.† T hey have also done a complete study of all of the values of the SunRail s tations for Transit-Oriented Development ( TOD) improvements, and that is a report that he would be happy to circulate among the _%_Board members.† He explained in the revised Transportation Improvement _%_Plan (TIP), the expansion of the express lanes on SR 417 has been removed permanently; it has been unfunded. He noted it's not that he's opposed to the widening of SR 417, he's opposed to a toll within a _B«1_toll .

†††† Chairman Horan explained a Commissioner gets to serve, if possible, on the Canvassing Board_DŔ1_ for Super visor of E lections_D‚1_; however, to sit on the Canvassing Board, one cannot be involved in any political activity whatsoever. It would be imprudent for one of the Commissioners to sit on that board because they may be involved in political activity, so normally they put it back to the Supervisor of Elections who puts it back to Judge Galluzzo who then appoints somebody.† He asked if he should do that again this year.† No objections were voiced.† Chairman Horan confirmed that is exactly the way he will handle it.
†††† Chairman Horan announced he signed his 8th consecutive burn ban order and cautioned the public if they are celebrating Memorial Day, do not celebrate in such a way that they may cause a fire.

†††† Chairman Horan discussed the hurricane exercise on June 1st at the Emergency Operations Center.† He displayed a utility bill and noted they have a new format now.† It is a nice clean bill that is easy to read and it shows the month of the previous year unlike the old utility bills.
