Staff recommends execution of two Interlocal Agreements with the Lake-Sumter MPO for DRI Transportation Review of Secret Promise and Renaissance Trails.
The City of Leesburg has two Developments of Regional Impact (DRI), Secret Promise and Renaissance Trails, which are currently undergoing the review process. This review process includes participation by several agencies at the local, regional, and state level. Since transportation impacts are a major part of the review process, the Lake-Sumter Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), a regional transportation planning organization in which the City is a full member, is best equipped to review, analyze, and develop recommended transportation mitigation and Development Order conditions for the DRIs.
1. Approve the execution of the two Interlocal Agreements
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
Utilization of the MPO for the coordinated review and analysis of the transportation impacts of the DRIs will result in significant cost savings to the City and assure strong cross-jurisdictional coordination. The $9,600 cost is budgeted and available for these agreements. The City will charge the developers the actual cost for these services.
