Subject:
Ordinance No. 2020-53 Relating to the Storey Park Community Development District; Granting a Petition to Amend the Boundaries of the District by Approximately 147.4 Acres (Storey Park CDD) (Economic Development)

Summary:

Proposed Ordinance No. 2020-53 would amend the boundaries of the Storey Park Community Development District (the "District").  The proposed new boundaries would add approximately 147.4 acres of land to the District.  The District is currently about 845.86 acres in size.

The District is a "Community Development District" (a "CDD").  CDDs are special- purpose units of local government that plan, finance, construct, and maintain public infrastructure such as roads, stormwater utilities, landscaping, and other common facilities.  CDDs are typically created by the applicable city or county government, but are governed by a board of supervisors elected by property owners in the CDD.

The proposed ordinance is requested by the Board of Supervisors of the Storey Park CDD to add approximately 588 residential units to the District. The District is generally located east of the Central Florida Greeneway (SR 417) and northwest of Storey Park Boulevard. 

First reading of this ordinance occurred at the October 19, 2020 council meeting.

In making its determination to grant or deny the petition the Orlando City Council must consider the testimony and evidence provided at a public hearing and the following factors found at section 190.005(1)(e), Florida Statutes:


1. Whether all statements contained within the petition have been found to be true and correct.

2. Whether the establishment of the district is inconsistent with any applicable element or portion of the state comprehensive plan or of the effective local government comprehensive plan.

3. Whether the area of land within the proposed new district boundaries is of sufficient size, is sufficiently compact, and is sufficiently contiguous to be developable as one functional interrelated community.

4. Whether the district is the best alternative available for delivering community development services and facilities to the area that will be served by the district.

5. Whether the community development services and facilities of the district will be compatible with the capacity and uses of existing local and regional community development services and facilities.

6. Whether the area that will be served by the district is amenable to separate special district government.


Fiscal & Efficiency Data: No fiscal impact.

Recommended Action:
Adopting Ordinance No. 2020-53 and authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute the same, after review and approval by the City Attorney's Office.
