The Planning staff recommends approval of the referenced tentative schedule for the preparation of the Evaluation and Appraisal Report.
On May 11, 2009, the City Commission authorized task order number 1 with LPG Urban & Regional Planners, Inc for professional services for preparation of the EAR.
The City of Leesburg is required to submit the mandatory EAR to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) by April 1, 2010. The EAR examines the City’s compliance with the adopted Goals, Objectives, and Policies of the Comprehensive Plan to determine what has been accomplished and what may need to be changed to better reflect the future growth of Leesburg. LPG will assist the City in evaluating and assessing the Comprehensive Plan through the requested public work shops and hearings and will prepare the required EAR for submission to DCA.
1. Approve the recommended tentative schedule.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City other than the previously approved contract for the completion of the EAR.
