Please be advised that the Planning Advisory Board (PAB) voted for a continuance of the public hearing on the Draft 2010 Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR), to formulate its recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners (BCC). The continuance of the PAB public hearing will be held on Tuesday, August 10, 2010 at 9:30 AM in the Miami Art Museum, at 101 West Flagler Street, Miami Florida 33130. The Miami Art Museum is located across the street from the Stephen P. Clark Center and adjacent to the County’s Main Library.
The complete draft 2010 Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) is now available for review and posted on the EAR website at http://www.miamidade.gov/PlanZone/ear2010/eardocuments.asp. Chapter 1 describes the major issues, Chapter 2 contains an evaluation of the individual eleven CDMP elements, and Chapter 3 reviews the special topics as detailed in section 163.3191, Florida Statues including the evaluation of roadway impact methodology. Chapter 4 summarizes all proposed recommendations from Chapters 1, 2 and 3.
For information about the EAR, the schedule of activities or the EAR process, please contact the Miami-Dade County Department of Planning and Zoning, Metropolitan Planning Section at 111 NW 1st Street, Suite 1220, Miami, Florida 33128-1972; or call (305) 375-2835.
The Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) is the guiding document of planning in Miami-Dade County. It sets the regulations governing land development and is the DNA of our urban plan (both within and outside of the UDB). Fixing this document is one of the most important ways that we can realize serious changes in our unsustainable pattern of development. This from the Miami-Dade Planning and Zoning Department:
Every 7 years, the Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) is reviewed and updated as required per Chapter 163 of the Florida Statutes. The EAR evaluates the progress in implementing the goals, objectives, policies, maps and text of the CDMP and recommends changes through EAR-based plan amendments, which are to be prepared and adopted within 18 months of a sufficiency review conducted by the Florida Department of Community Affairs.
Because the CDMP governs what can be built outside the UDB, it is imperative that the regulations governing residential development outside the line be changed. Currently the plan allows for 1 unit per 5 acres, leading to large ranch estate subdivisions. Amending the CDMP is the front line of the UDB battle. Everyone interested in holding the line should make their opinion heard at the Town Hall meetings.
