CITY OF WINTER SPRINGS,FLORIDA MINUTES CITY COMMISSION REGULAR MEETING-FEBRUARY 24,2014 PAGE 14 OF 18 PUBLIC HEARINGS 501. Community Development Department-Planning Division REQUEST: The Community Development Department --- Planning Division requests that the City Commission consider, for first reading,Ordinance 2013-11, which proposes to amend the City's regulations regarding off-premises signs, commonly referred to as billboards. (This Ordinance went to the Planning and Zoning Board/Local Planning Agency in 2013,as Ordinance 2013-11.) FISCAL IMPACT: While there is no direct fiscal impact to the City, staff is of the opinion that the proposed new code language will facilitate more diversified and aesthetically pleasing advertising options in the US 17-92 corridor. These options may increase the advertising potential of local businesses and possible the City. The signs also represent increased visibility for public service and emergency announcements. COMMUNICATION EFFORTS: This Agenda Item has been electronically forwarded to the Mayor and City Commission, City Manager, City Attorney/Staff, and is available on the City's Website, LaserFiche, and the City's Server. Additionally,portions of this Agenda Item are typed verbatim on the respective Meeting Agenda which has also been electronically forwarded to the individuals noted above, and which is also available on the City's Website, LaserFiche, and the City's Server; has been sent to applicable City Staff, Media/Press Representatives who have requested Agendas/Agenda Item information, Homeowner's Associations/Representatives on file with the City, and all individuals who have requested such information. This information has also been posted outside City Hall, posted inside City Hall with additional copies available for the General Public, and posted at five (5) different locations around the City. Furthermore, this information is also available to any individual requestors. City Staff is always willing to discuss this Agenda Item or any Agenda Item with any interested individuals. RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends the City Commission approve first reading of Ordinance 2013-11, which proposes to amend the City's regulations regarding off-premises signs located in the US 17-92 corridor, commonly referred to as billboards, and move said Ordinance forward to second reading and final approval. Staff would also recommend that the two signs referenced in the Planning and Zoning Minutes of September 4, 2013 be addressed as a separate text amendment proposal as these signs are contextually different than those along the US 17-92 Corridor and are also tied to the Greeneway Interchange District and the proposed "Icon" signage along SR 417. "MOTION TO READ BY `TITLE' ONLY." MOTION BY COMMISSIONER HOVEY. SECONDED BY DEPUTY MAYOR BROWN. DISCUSSION. MOTION CARRIED UNANIMOUSLY WITH NO OBJECTIONS. Attorney Garganese read this Ordinance 2013-11 by "Title" only and added that the Ordinance "Has a 2013 title in it because the Planning and Zoning Board made a recommendation regarding this Ordinance in the fall of 2011" Further, Attorney Garganese noted, "Currently, the City has grandfathered in all existing billboards within the City. That grandfathering provision has been in effect since 2001. I understand that there is a billboard or two (2) on (U.S. Highway) 17/92 where the property owner would like to make a conversion of the billboard. The way the Ordinance is currently drafted, all those non-conforming billboards someday are supposed to go away. This Ordinance if it passes would allow the Commission on (U.S. Highway) 17/92 to permit a conversion from the existing billboard into a digital billboard; only upon terms and conditions that the Commission will approve and the Ordinance lays out a lot of technical requirements regarding what would need to be done in order to get that approval." CITY OF WINTER SPRINGS,FLORIDA MINUTES CITY COMMISSION REGULAR MEETING--FEBRUARY 24,2014 PAGE 15 OF 18 Discussion. Mr. Bobby Howell, AICP, Planner, Community Development Department addressed the City Commission and stated, "We do recommend approval — also we would recommend that the two (2) signs that were referenced in the Planning and Zoning Board Minutes of September 4`h', 2013, be addressed as a separate Text amendment proposal as this Ordinance is only specific to the U.S. (Highway) 17/92 corridor. We'll revisit the GID corridor in a separate Text Amendment at a later date." Mayor Lacey opened the "Public Input"portion of the Agenda Item. No one spoke. Mayor Lacey closed the "Public Input"portion of the Agenda Item. Discussion followed on the Ordinance number.
