The attached Interlocal Agreement between the City of Orlando and the Boggy Creek Improvement District (the "district") would authorize the district to provide services relating to the ownership and maintenance of components of a Distributed Antennae System (a "DAS"). A DAS captures radio signals used by law enforcement and fire-safety personnel and then amplifies the signals for use in certain large buildings where the signals might otherwise not reach with sufficient strength. City regulations require that buildings provide such a system if signal strength is inadequate.
The district is a limited-purpose special district created by City ordinance in 2001 pursuant to the Uniform Community Development District Act (Chapter 190, Florida Statutes). Its jurisdiction comprises approximately 1,085 acres of land bisected by State Road 417, just to the south of Lake Nona. The district is responsible for building and maintaining certain public infrastructure, including roads, stormwater systems, and landscaping. Chapter 190, Florida Statutes, authorizes the City to grant the district the authority to provide additional public infrastructure and utilities, such as DAS infrastructure. The district wishes to provide DAS services for some of the new large buildings at the growing Lake Nona Medical City.
