The attached ordinance will amend Figure CI-14 and Policy 2.2.30 in the Capital Improvements Element (CIE) of the Growth Management Plan (GMP) by updating the list of capital projects that are needed to meet level of service (LOS) standards between the years 2016 and 2021. The proposed amendment to Figure CI-14 is consistent with the City budget adopted on September 26, 2016.
The CIE sets minimum acceptable LOS standards for various public facilities and services including solid waste, wastewater, potable water, schools, and parks and recreation. Figure CI-14 of the CIE identifies the type, cost and timing of capital improvements needed to attain and/or maintain the adopted LOS standards. CIE Policy 2.2.30 adopts the Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) Capital Improvements Program by reference rather than including school projects in Figure CI-14.
The Municipal Planning Board recommended approval of the proposed GMP amendments on August 16, 2016 (Case #GMP2016-00016). The first reading of this ordinance was approved on October 24, 2016.
