Commission Meeting Agenda Item
Consideration of Approval of the Contract with Lassiter Transportation Group (LTG) to Prepare the State Required Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) Based Amendments to the Comprehensive Plan on Behalf of the Town of Lady Lake
Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends of approval of the contract with Lassiter Transportation Group (LTG) to prepare the State-required Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) based amendments to the Comprehensive Plan on behalf of the Town of Lady Lake.
On September 18, 2019, Matthew West of LTG Engineering and Planning was awarded a contract to evaluate the Town’s Comprehensive Plan to determine if it is in compliance with the Florida State statutes. Upon review of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, the Lassiter Transportation Group has determined that amendments are indeed necessary to comply with the Florida Statutes. A table has been provided noting the statutory changes that have been adopted since 2010, the last time that the Town of Lady Lake conducted an Evaluation and Appraisal Report of the Comprehensive Plan.
A letter was submitted to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) on April 28, 2020, notifying them that we will need to make amendments to our plan. These amendments need to go before the Commission and subsequently be transmitted to the DEO by June 4, 2021.
LTG has an existing contract with the City of Daytona Beach that the Town would like to utilize to “piggyback” for planning services by LTG. Given that Mr. West conducted the initial review of our plan, he is well suited to draft the amendments to the plan because of his familiarity with its content. A contract has been prepared for these planning services in the amount of $10,500.
The Town Commission is scheduled to consider the contract extension on Monday, February 1, 2021, at 6p.m.
