Prepared by: Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee (EP)
The bill amends s. 373.4131, F.S., requiring the development of statewide environmental resource permit rules that provide for a conceptual permit for municipalities or counties that create a stormwater management master plan for urban infill and redevelopment areas or community redevelopment areas. It specifies that the master plan becomes part of the conceptual permit and that the rules must provide for an associated general permit for the construction and operation of urban redevelopment projects that meet the criteria established in the conceptual permit. The bill also provides requirements for the conceptual permit.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2013.
Vote: Senate 39-0; House 117-0
