Prepared for: Florida Department of Community Affairs

Project Summary:

The 2005-2006 Report to the Legislative Committee on Intergovernmental Relations is submitted to meet the requirements of Section 163.3245 (6), Florida Statutes (F.S.), that requires the Department of Community Affairs to provide an annual status report on the optional sector plan program and each optional sector plan authorized under the program. This report, however, will include the combined status for years 2005 and 2006.

This report provides background information about the statutory requirements and process for adopting an optional sector plan and the subsequent specific area plans. The statute has provided an opportunity for five local governments to pursue an optional sector plan under this demonstration program. To date, six local governments have attempted to undertake an optional sector plan. This report includes a status report for each of the local governments that have pursued op¬tional sector plans: Orange, Bay, Palm Beach, Escambia, Polk, and Clay Counties.
