Staff recommends approval of Ordinance 2023-20.


Ordinance 2023-20  is a proposal of the annual update of the Capital Improvements Schedule, which is part of the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. The Capital Improvement Plan update process and the corresponding requirements are no longer required to be processed by a Comprehensive Plan Amendment but may be adopted by local Ordinance.

The Town must annually update the Five-Year Schedule of Capital Improvements pursuant to Florida Statutes. The purpose of the Capital Improvements Element and the Improvement Schedules is to identify the capital improvements that are needed to implement the Comprehensive Plan and ensure that adopted Level of Service (LOS) standards are achieved and maintained for concurrency-related facilities.

These facilities include water supply, sewer, solid waste, drainage, parks and recreation, public schools, transportation, and mass transit. While the Town does not have financial responsibility or accountability regarding some of these public facilities, there is still the requirement to incorporate the five-year capital improvement schedules from other entities.

Corrections, updates, and modifications concerning costs, revenues, or the dates of construction of any facility or project identified in the Comprehensive Plan or Capital Improvement Program are not considered amendments and may be accomplished by local ordinance.

This ordinance serves to update the Capital Improvements Schedule as required under F.S. 163.3177(3)(b). The attached "Exhibit A" reflects the proposed improvements for the Five -Year Planning Period 2024 to 2028. Also attached is Ordinance 2022-21 to document the prior 5-year Capital Improvement Schedule 2023 to 2027, which is being replaced by this ordinance.
