755 pursuant to s. 163.3184 of a long-term master plan for the
756 entire planning area as part of the comprehensive plan, and
757 adoption by local development order of two or more detailed
758 specific area plans that implement the long-term master plan and
759 within which s. 380.06 is waived.
760 (a) In addition to the other requirements of this chapter,
761 except for those that are inconsistent with or superseded by the
762 planning standards of this paragraph, a long-term master plan
763 pursuant to this section must include maps, illustrations, and
764 text supported by data and analysis to address the following:
765 1. A framework map that, at a minimum, generally depicts
766 areas of urban, agricultural, rural, and conservation land use;
767 identifies allowed uses in various parts of the planning area;
768 specifies maximum and minimum densities and intensities of use;
769 and provides the general framework for the development pattern
770 in developed areas with graphic illustrations based on a
771 hierarchy of places and functional place-making components.

792 planning area.
793 6. General principles and guidelines addressing the urban
794 form and the interrelationships of future land uses; the
795 protection and, as appropriate, restoration and management of
796 lands identified for permanent preservation through recordation
797 of conservation easements consistent with s. 704.06, which shall
798 be phased or staged in coordination with detailed specific area
799 plans to reflect phased or staged development within the
800 planning area; achieving a more clean, healthy environment;
801 limiting urban sprawl; providing a range of housing types;
802 protecting wildlife and natural areas; advancing the efficient
803 use of land and other resources; creating quality communities of

808 extrajurisdictional impacts from the future land uses.
810 A long-term master plan adopted pursuant to this section may be
811 based upon a planning period longer than the generally
812 applicable planning period of the local comprehensive plan,
813 shall specify the projected population within the planning area
814 during the chosen planning period, and may include a phasing or
815 staging schedule that allocates a portion of the local
816 government’s future growth to the planning area through the
817 planning period. A long-term master plan adopted pursuant to
818 this section is not required to demonstrate need based upon
819 projected population growth or on any other basis.

852 restoration and management of lands within the boundary of the
853 detailed specific area plan identified for permanent
854 preservation through recordation of conservation easements
855 consistent with s. 704.06, which easements shall be effective
856 before or concurrent with the effective date of the detailed
857 specific area plan and other important resources both within and
858 outside the host jurisdiction. Any such conservation easement
859 may be based on rectified aerial photographs without the need
860 for a survey and may include a right of adjustment authorizing
861 the grantor to modify portions of the area protected by a
862 conservation easement and substitute other lands in their place
863 if the lands to be substituted contain no less gross acreage
864 than the lands to be removed; have equivalent values in the
865 proportion and quality of wetlands, uplands, and wildlife
866 habitat; and are contiguous to other lands protected by the
867 conservation easement. Substitution is accomplished by recording
868 an amendment to the conservation easement as accepted by and
869 with the consent of the grantee which consent may not be
870 unreasonably withheld.

880 intergovernmental coordination to address extrajurisdictional
881 impacts from the detailed specific area plan.
883 A detailed specific area plan adopted by local development order
884 pursuant to this section may be based upon a planning period
885 longer than the generally applicable planning period of the
886 local comprehensive plan and shall specify the projected
887 population within the specific planning area during the chosen
888 planning period. A detailed specific area plan adopted pursuant
889 to this section is not required to demonstrate need based upon
890 projected population growth or on any other basis. All lands
891 identified in the long-term master plan for permanent
892 preservation shall be subject to a recorded conservation
893 easement consistent with s. 704.06 before or concurrent with the
894 effective date of the final detailed specific area plan to be
895 approved within the planning area. Any such conservation
896 easement may be based on rectified aerial photographs without
897 the need for a survey and may include a right of adjustment
898 authorizing the grantor to modify portions of the area protected
899 by a conservation easement and substitute other lands in their
900 place if the lands to be substituted contain no less gross
901 acreage than the lands to be removed; have equivalent values in
902 the proportion and quality of wetlands, uplands, and wildlife
903 habitat; and are contiguous to other lands protected by the
904 conservation easement. Substitution is accomplished by recording
905 an amendment to the conservation easement as accepted by and
906 with the consent of the grantee which consent may not be
907 unreasonably withheld.
908 (c) In its review of a long-term master plan, the state
909 land planning agency shall consult with the Department of
910 Agriculture and Consumer Services, the Department of
911 Environmental Protection, the Fish and Wildlife Conservation
912 Commission, and the applicable water management district
913 regarding the design of areas for protection and conservation of
914 regionally significant natural resources and for the protection
915 and, as appropriate, restoration and management of lands
916 identified for permanent preservation.
917 (d) In its review of a long-term master plan, the state
918 land planning agency shall consult with the Department of
919 Transportation, the applicable metropolitan planning
920 organization, and any urban transit agency regarding the
921 location, capacity, design, and phasing or staging of major
922 transportation facilities in the planning area.
923 (e) Whenever a local government issues a development order
924 approving a detailed specific area plan, a copy of such order
925 shall be rendered to the state land planning agency and the
926 owner or developer of the property affected by such order, as
927 prescribed by rules of the state land planning agency for a
928 development order for a development of regional impact. Within
929 45 days after the order is rendered, the owner, the developer,
930 or the state land planning agency may appeal the order to the
931 Florida Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission by filing a
932 petition alleging that the detailed specific area plan is not
933 consistent with the comprehensive plan or with the long-term
934 master plan adopted pursuant to this section. The appellant
935 shall furnish a copy of the petition to the opposing party, as
936 the case may be, and to the local government that issued the
937 order. The filing of the petition stays the effectiveness of the
938 order until after completion of the appeal process. However, if
939 a development order approving a detailed specific area plan has
940 been challenged by an aggrieved or adversely affected party in a
941 judicial proceeding pursuant to s. 163.3215, and a party to such
942 proceeding serves notice to the state land planning agency, the
943 state land planning agency shall dismiss its appeal to the
944 commission and shall have the right to intervene in the pending
945 judicial proceeding pursuant to s. 163.3215. Proceedings for
946 administrative review of an order approving a detailed specific
947 area plan shall be conducted consistent with s. 380.07(6). The
948 commission shall issue a decision granting or denying permission
949 to develop pursuant to the long-term master plan and the
950 standards of this part and may attach conditions or restrictions
951 to its decisions.
952 (f) The applicant for a detailed specific area plan shall
953 transmit copies of the application to the reviewing agencies
954 specified in s. 163.3184(1)(c), or their successor agencies, for
955 review and comment as to whether the detailed specific area plan
956 is consistent with the comprehensive plan and the long-term
957 master plan. Any comments from the reviewing agencies shall be
958 submitted in writing to the local government with jurisdiction
959 and to the state land planning agency within 30 days after the
960 applicant’s transmittal of the application.
961 (g) (f) This subsection does not prevent preparation and
962 approval of the sector plan and detailed specific area plan
963 concurrently or in the same submission.
964 (h) If an applicant seeks to use wetland or upland
965 preservation achieved by granting conservation easements
966 required under this section as compensatory mitigation for
967 permitting purposes under chapter 373 or chapter 379, the
968 Department of Environmental Protection, the Fish and Wildlife
969 Conservation Commission, or the water management district may
970 accept such mitigation under the criteria established in the
971 uniform assessment method required by s. 373.414, or pursuant to
972 chapter 379, as applicable, without considering the fact that a
973 conservation easement encumbering the same real property was
974 previously recorded pursuant to paragraph (b).
975 (9) The adoption of a long-term master plan or a detailed
976 specific area plan pursuant to this section does not limit the
977 right to continue existing agricultural or silvicultural uses or
978 other natural resource-based operations or to establish similar
979 new agricultural or silvicultural uses that are consistent with
980 the plans approved pursuant to this section.
981 (13) An applicant with an approved master development order
982 may request that the applicable water management district issue
983 a consumptive use permit as set forth in s. 373.236(8) for the
984 same period of time as the approved master development order.
985 (15) The more specific provisions of this section shall
986 supersede the generally applicable provisions of this chapter
987 which otherwise would apply. This section does not preclude a
988 local government from requiring data and analysis beyond the
989 minimum criteria established in this section.
990 Section 31. Subsection (8) is added to section 373.236,
991 Florida Statutes, to read:
992 373.236 Duration of permits; compliance reports.—
993 (8) A water management district may issue a permit to an
994 applicant, as set forth in s. 163.3245(13), for the same period
