Text Change - Amending the Land Development Code Regulations for Wellfield Protection Special Use Permits (B)

 

Ordinance No. 200067

 

An ordinance of the City of Gainesville, Florida, amending Section 30-3.30. Review Criteria of the Land Development Code (Chapter 30 of the City of Gainesville Code of Ordinances) relating to Wellfield Protection Special Use Permits; providing directions to the codifier; providing a severability clause; providing a repealing clause; and providing an effective date.

 

recommendation

The City Commission adopt the proposed ordinance.

 

explanation

STAFF REPORT

 

This ordinance will amend the Land Development Code (LDC) Wellfield Special Use Permit issuance criteria to allow the underground storage of petroleum within the tertiary Murphree Wellfield Zone. The affected area is primarily located in the northeast quadrant of the City of Gainesville and extends past the city boundaries. The tertiary Murphree Wellfield Zone is the least restrictive out of the three Murphree Wellfield zones and has historically allowed for underground storage of petroleum via Special Use Permit.  After the 2017 Land Development Code update, language that previously allowed the underground storage of petroleum in the tertiary wellfield zone was eliminated. Staff was not able to find any record that this omission was intentional.

 

The City Plan Board held a public hearing on June 25, 2020, where it voted to recommend approval of this amendment to the Land Development Code.  This ordinance requires two hearings and will become effective immediately upon adoption at second reading.
