Staff Summary
* The Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) has evaluated updated rainfall frequency data and has drafted corresponding amendments to the Watershed Development Ordinance (WDO). SMC's draft also includes other miscellaneous amendments.
* In order to remain a SMC "Certified Community" in good standing, Lake County shall incorporate the WDO amendments, upon their adoption, into the Lake County Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) within 90 days.
* On March 13, 2001, the Lake County Board authorized the Planning, Building and Zoning Committee (PB&Z) to forward any future proposed UDO text amendments relating to WDO revisions directly to the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) and to direct the ZBA to conduct a public hearing to consider such amendments. This Committee authority extends to the current Public Works, Planning and Transportation Committee.
* To minimize delay in considering corresponding UDO text amendments for unincorporated Lake County upon completion of the WDO amendment process, the attached Committee action directs the Zoning Board of Appeals to conduct a public hearing on such amendments at that time.
