SUBJECT: GH Vero Beach Development LLC's Request for Major Site Plan and Preliminary Plat Approval for Osprey Village [SP-MA-16-05-09 / 2003010231-76303]

It is requested that the data herein presented be given formal consideration by the Planning and Zoning Commission at its regular meeting of May 26, 2016.

DESCRIPTION & CONDITIONS

Masteller & Moler, Inc., on behalf of GH Vero Beach Development LLC, is requesting major site plan and preliminary plat approval for a 56-unit multiple-family residential development to be known as Osprey Village. The project also proposes to relocate an existing golfhole (hole #3 of the Harbor Course at Grand Harbor), and create a 2.86 acre commercial tract for future development. The site is located at the southeast comer of the Indian River Boulevard and 53ro Street intersection, and is 18.20 acres in size. Approximately ±9.52 acres of the project site (generally the east half) is zoned RM-6, Residential Multiple-Family (up to 6 units/acre), and the remaining ±8.68 acres (generally the west half) is zoned CG, General Commercial ( see attachment 2). The project site has a land use designation of M-1, Medium-Density Residential-I (up to 8 units/acre) and C/1, Commercial /Industrial, respectively.

The residential portion of the project consists of 7 separate 3-story buildings, with each building containing 8 dwelling units, for a project total of 56 units, and a residential density of5.88 units per acre. As shown on the accompanying site plan, the residential portion of the project will be located entirely within the RM-6 zoning district, the relocated golf hole will be located partially within the RM-6 zoning district and partially within the CG zoning district, and the future commercial tract will be located entirely within the CG zoning district. At this time, no development is proposed on the commercial tract. Future commercial development will require a separate site plan application.

The Planning and Zoning Commission is now to consider granting major site plan and preliminary plat approval for this project.

ANALYSIS

1. Site Size: 18.20 acres

2. Zoning Classifications: RM-6, Residential Multiple-Family (up to 6 units/acre): 9.52 acres CG, General Commercial: 8.68 acres

3. Land Use Designations: M-1, Medium Density Residential (up to 8 units/acre): 9.52 acres

5.

6.

7.

Density:

C/1, Commercial/Industrial: 8.68 acres

Maximum Allowed: Proposed:

6.00 uni ts/acre 5.88 units/acre

Note: The density calculation is based on the portion of the project site that is zoned RM-6.

Building Area:

Impervious Area:

Open Space:

53,704 square feet (ground floor area of the 3-story buildings)

108,202 square feet

Required: 34.01 % Proposed: 87.91 %

Note: The project's required open space percentage is a blended average between the portion of the site that is zoned RM-6 and the portion that is zoned CG. Currently, the project's proposed open space percentage is based on the commercial tract remaining undeveloped. In the future, the project's actual open space will be adjusted (reduced) to account for the development areas of that tract.

8. Utilities: The project will be served by public water and sewer service provided by County Utility Services. The County Department of Utility Services and the Department of Health have approved these project utility provisions.

9. Traffic Circulation: Access to the residential portion of the project will be provided by a single, full-movement connection to Via Marbella Boulevard, which is a private road within the overall Grand Harbor community. The proposed traffic circulation plan consists of a single, two-way private road (Osprey Village Road) that terminates in a driving circle. The internal roadway system will be privately maintained by, and dedicated to, the property owners association. Access to the proposed commercial tract will be determined through a subsequent development review process for that site. Access to the relocated golf hole will be provided via an internal golf cart pathway system.

The driveway connection, traffic circulation plan, and roadway design proposed on the accompanying site plan have been reviewed and approved by Traffic Engineering and Fire Prevention. Additionally, Traffic Engineering reviewed and approved the traffic link sheets submitted by the applicant. No off-site traffic improvements are required or proposed for the

F:\Community Development\CurD~\P&Z\2016\OspreyVillage(SP-MA-16-05-09).docx 2

residential portion of the project. Off-site traffic improvemen ts for the future commercial tract (if applicable) will be determined through a subsequent traffic analysis conducted as part of the commercial site plan application.

10. Off-Street Parking: As required by County parking standards, each residential unit must be provided at least two parking spaces. As proposed, each unit ·will be provided with at least two parking spaces, and those spaces are provided within ground-level parking garages located at the base of each multiple-family building.

11. Stormwater Management: The project's site plan design includes a modified Miami curb street design and two dry retention areas to manage some of the runoff generated by the residential portion of the project. Additionally, a stormwatern1anagementpond with littoral zone plantings will be provided along the east side of the relocated golf hole, and that pond will receive runoff from the golf hole as well as the remaining runoff generated by the residential portion of the project. Public Works has reviewed and approved the project's preliminary drainage design. The final drainage design will be reviewed and approved by the Public Works Department via the County stormwater permitting process.

12. Required Improvements:

a. Internal Sidewalks: A 5' wide sidewalk is required and proposed along both sides of the project's internal roadway. Additionally, sidewalk connections to the Via Marbella Boulevard sidewalk system (within the overall Grand Harbor community) are provided on both sides of the project's entrance road. Ultimately, the Via Marbella Boulevard sidewalk system provides a sidewalk connection to the external sidewalk system provided along Indian River Boulevard and 53rd Street. The applicant will be required to provide all common area internal sidewalk segments prior to the issuance of the first project certificate of occupancy (C.O.). The internal sidewalk segments located immediately in front of each multiple-family building must be installed, prior to issuance of the first C.O. for that respective building.

b. Streetlighting: Streetlights are required and will be maintained by the property owners association. The proposed streetlight locations are depicted on the accompanying plans. The final design of the streetlighting poles and fixtures must be approved by Planning staff, prior to site plan release. The streetlighting improvements must be installed, prior to the issuance of the first project C.O.

13. Landscape Plan: The project's landscape plan meets all applicable landscaping regulations of Chapter 926 of the County LDRs, including thoroughfare plan/local road buffers for Indian River Boulevard and Via Marbella Boulevard, nonvehicular area landscaping, lake shoreline trees, and littoral zone plantings. All of the landscaping identified on the accompanying landscape plan will need to be installed prior to the issuance of the first project C.O.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\20 l 6\OspreyVillage(SP-MA· l 6-05-09).docx 3

14. Environmental Issues:

a. Wetlands: County Environmental Planning Staff has determined that no jurisdictional wetlands exist on the subject. site. Therefore, no wetlands criteria apply to the proposed development.

b. Uplands: Since the site is over five acres, the County's native upland set-aside requirement potentially applies; however, County Environmental Planning staff has determined that no intact native upland plant communities exist on the project site. Therefore, no native upland set-aside requirements apply to the proposed development.

c. Tree Preservation: There are numerous existing trees located on the southern one-third of the project site. Most of the existing trees located on the golf hole tract will either b e preserved in place or relocated on-site (within the golf hole tract); however, a few trees will be removed and mitigated by planting new trees on-site. Currently, the trees located within the future commercial tract will remain undisturbed, and the disposition of those trees will be reviewed when the future commercial tract is proposed for development.

15. Other Corridors Requirements: The subject site is located w ithin the Other Corridors, and is subject to Other Corridors special regulations for building aesthetics including articulation of facades, materials, colors, lighting, for screening of visually offensive elements, for signs, and for landscaping. The accompanying plans generally meet the Other Corridors special development regulations. However, the final architectural design details ( e.g. final building colors and final lighting design) will need to be reviewed and approved by Planning staff, prior to site plan release.

16. Concurrency: As required under the County's concurrency regulations, the applicant has applied for and obtained a conditional concurrency certificate for the project, which is sufficient for site plan and preliminary plat approval. The concurrency certificate was issued based upon a concurrency analysis and a determination that adequate capacity was available to serve the subject project at the time of the determination. In accordance with County concurrency regulations, the developer will be required to obtain a final concurrency certificate prior to issuance of a building permit for each multiple-family building, and prior to site plan release for the future commercial tract, respectively.

17. Surrounding Land Use and Zoning:

North: Via Marbella Boulevard, The Reserve at Grand Harbor /,RM-6 East: The Harbor Golf Course/ RM-6 South: Golf Course Maintenance Facility/ RM-6 West: Indian River Boulevard, Vacant / CL

All conditions recommended by staff have been accepted by the applicant.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\OspreyVillage{SP-MA-16-05-09).docx 4

Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing a Local License Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations

It is requested that the data herein presented be given formal consideration by the Planning and Zoning Commission at its regular meeting of May 26, 2016.

BACKGROUND

From the 1980s - 2012, staff interpreted county regulations to treat residences rented for periods of less than 30 days as a lodging unit, requiring commercial zoning or special approval such as a residential resort ( e.g. Disney resort) or bed and breakfast. During that period, there were occasional but not many short term rental "violations" that came through code enforcement.

In July 2012, the Board of County Commissioners (Board), as part of a proposed change to clarify the county's treatment of short term rentals, adopted regulations clarifying that ". . . any residential dwelling unit offered for rent or lease for less than a month at a time shall not be considered a hotel/motel or lodging facility". That regulation change remains in effect and allows a residential dwelling unit in the unincorporated area of the county to be used as a "vacation rental" (see definition, attachment 1). At the time of the 2012 regulation adoption, the Board directed staff to track site-specific complaints related to vacation rentals and coordinate with the state to try to ensure compliance with state licensing requirements for vacation rentals. In 2012, the Board also expressed a desire to have vacation rentals "come out of the shadows" and come into compliance with state requirements and local tax obligations.

Since July 2012, county Code Enforcement has tracked site specific complaints related to vacation rentals and has coordinated with the state regarding state licensing of suspected "unlicensed" vacation rentals. To date, over a period of nearly four years, Code Enforcement has received complaints regarding a total of 19 specific, suspected unlicensed units. The location and disposition of those units with respect to proper state licensing is shown on the attached vacation rental complaint log (see attachment 2).

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 1 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

Last summer (2015), the Board heard concerns regarding vacation rentals and short-term rentals of residences for large events. Expressed concerns primarily involved over-parking and outdoor noise/disturbances. In response, the Board took the following four actions:

1. Considered and adopted on September 23, 2015 a prohibition on commercial events (e.g. weddings) at residences, with allowances for events already booked at residences and for events held on 4+ acre agricultural sites subject to a special temporary use permit (see attachment 3).

2. Considered and adopted on October 6, 2015 special parking regulations for vacation rentals, establishing standards for parking spaces outside of garages/carports with a maximum [cap] of 5 parking spaces located outside a garage/carport at any time day or night (see attachment 4).

3. Directed staff to post vacation rental public information on the county website (see attachment 5).

4. Established (with a sunset provision) and appointed members to the Short Tenn Vacation Rental Advisory Committee (STRV AC) to advise whether or not additional vacation rental regulations are needed and to " ... submit recommendations on proposed legislation, ordinances, and rules to the Board of County Commissioners".

Last August, the two regulations that were ultimately adopted (actions 1 and 2) were reviewed by the Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC) at a land development regulations (LDR) amendment public hearing. Those adopted regulations are in effect and are being implemented. Under action 3, public information on vacation rentals has been posted on the County's website since October 2015 and has been updated as needed. The vacation rental committee (action 4) met, determined that additional vacation rental regulations are needed, completed its tasks, and made its final recommendations to the Board. The committee's recommendations included: a new ordinance establishing additional vacation rental regulations, a schedule of fines for violations, and a requirement that staff provide a progress report to the Board one year after adoption of the new ordinance. Those recommendations were finalized at the committee's last meeting of March 17, 2016 (see attachment 6).

On April 12, 2016 the Board considered the STVRAC' s recommendations, provided staff direction on proposed occupancy limits and consistency with health department septic/drainfield requirements, and directed staff to initiate the formal land development regulation amendment process for review and adoption of a new vacation rental ordinance. Staff has now drafted a proposed vacation rental ordinance (see attachment 11) that consists largely of the draft ordinance recommended by the STV AC, and also includes regulations proposed by staff that address occupancy limits and health department septic/drainfield capacity items brought up by the Board on April 12th.

The PZC is now to consider the proposed ordinance and make a recommendation that the Board adopt, adopt with changes, or reject the proposed ordinance and associated regulations.

ANALYSIS

• Current Conditions

Currently, staff has no accurate data on the total number of vacation rental units (state licensed and unlicensed) offered for rent in Indian River County. Research conducted by the County Attorney's Office in 2015, however, indicates that there may be more than 3 75 vacation rental units county-wide offered for rent on the internet. Of those estimated 375 units, it appears that roughly 250 units lie within the unincorporated area of the county. During public meetings at which vacation rentals have been discussed, some participants have speculated that there may be hundreds of more units than staffs research indicates. Whether there are 250 units in the unincorporated county or hundreds more than that, a total of 19 units with some type of suspected vacation rental violation over a 4 year period indicates that vacation rental unit problems are not widespread or numerous at this time. Nonetheless, the STVRAC and staff believe that additional vacation rental regulations are warranted to reasonably address existing and potential problems and nuisances and to prevent a proliferation of problems from occurring in the future, especially if the local vacation rental market expands.

Since adoption of the commercial events prohibition and special parking regulations for vacation rentals (actions 1 and 2 above), staff has received only one complaint related to a potential violation of the commercial event at residence prohibition or vacation rental parking standards. That one complaint, received in February 2016, was prompted by a concern about over-parking at an event. Code Enforcement investigated that apparent violation of the commercial event prohibition and issued a written warning together with a description of the commercial event at residence prohibition and a copy of the relevant regulation. Based on the reduced level of overall complaints, it appears that the commercial event prohibition and special parking regulations have had their desired effect, and there is no proposal or recommendation to change those regulations at this time. With respectto the vacation rental committee initiative ( action 4 above), the committee has conducted and completed its work as described below, and is considered sun-setted.

• Vacation Rental Committee (STVRAC)

The STVRAC met six times from October 2015 - March 2016 at monthly meetings centered around specific vacation rental topics. Meeting packets and notices were sent to a number of interested participants as well as committee members. All committee agendas, meeting materials, staff reports, minutes, and meeting videos remain available on the county website.

Topics and information reviewed or considered by the committee included the following:

October 2015 • Committee purpose and charge from the BCC

• Background and introduction of vacation rental issues

• Identification of potential regulation topics and committee schedule

November 2015 • Parking regulations and commercial event prohibition already adopted by BCC

• Establishment of a local license and tax compliance

F:\Cornmunity Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Considemtion of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 3 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

• Monroe County Regulations, Moorings Committee Recommendations, Noise Regulations, Boat/watercraft Regulations, Polk County Rental Guide

• Vacation rentals in mixed use projects December 2015 • Fire safety requirements and occupancy limits

• Septic system standards and compliance January 2016 • Homestead Exemption and Property Appraiser assessments

• Economic impact information

• Occupancy limits, HUD Fair Housing occupancy guidelines

• Fines and citations February 2016 • Occupancy limits

• Inspections and length of local license March2016 • Local license violation fine

• Recommended ordinance and reconsideration of occupancy limits

• Staff progress report to BCC after adoption of new ordinance

As part of concluding its assigned tasks, the committee made three recommendations to the Board: adoption of a vacation rental ordinance, adoption of a new schedule of significant fines/citations for vacation rental violations, and staff presentation of an evaluation/progress report to the Board one year after adoption of the ordinance.

• Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance

At its April 12, 2016 meeting, the Board of County Commissioners reviewed the ordinance recommended by the STVRAC and indicated that changes were needed with respect to occupancy limits and consistency with health department septic tank/drainfield system requirements, where applicable (see attachment 7). The proposed ordinance reflects the regulations recommended by the STRV AC with two changes: revised occupancy limits and additional regulations for units with septic tank/drainfield systems. Those changes are described in more detail later in this report. The proposed ordinance does not propose any changes to the county's existing definition of "vacation rental", the existing prohibition of commercial events at residences, or the existing vacation rental parking regulations. It is also important to note that all county regulations applicable to a single­family residence ( e.g. use and limitations on docks, noise and nuisance regulations, and environmental regulations) apply to vacation rentals as well.

As structured, the proposed ordinance includes all provisions recommended by the STVRAC with the exception of a license application submittal requirement added by staff (page 2 of ordinance) and an alternative recommendation for occupancy limits (page 3 of ordinance). Both of those changes are highlighted in the ordinance (see attachment 11). The attached ordinance, if adopted, will:

1. Require the owner of a vacation rental unit to obtain a county license from the community development department, said license to be valid for 3 years with the ability of an owner to obtain a license renewal every 3 years.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 4 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

Rationale: As part of establishing a local vacation rental license, the county should require site inspections and must set a length of time for which a license remains valid. In determining those requirements, the county needs to consider a number of factors, including: the items that need an inspection, who should perform the inspection, how often inspections need to be conducted, staffing levels/efficiency/costs, and ease of licensing as it affects the Board's objective of "bringing vacation rental units out of the shadows" and into compliance. Based on requirements in subsequent sections of the proposed ordinance, items that should be inspected include:

• Parking accommodations • State-required fire protection items (smoke alarms, emergency lighting, fire

extinguisher) • Occupancy limit items (number of bedrooms) • Posting or displaying required public and "good neighbor" information inside the

vacation rental unit

With adequate training, code enforcement officers can conduct those types of compliance inspections and will retain personal knowledge of the unit in the event that compliance issues and violations occur at some point in the future.

With respect to the length of a county license and the frequency of regular inspections (not including inspections for suspected violations that may arise from time to time), it is staff's opinion that annual licensing and annual inspections would be more frequent than necessary. It is also staffs opinion that a 3 year license and regular site inspections every 3 years will be frequent enough to catch major unit changes that could affect compliance with county vacation rental regulations. In summary, staff and the STVRAC support requiring an inspection for the initial permit, a permit timeframe of 3 years, and an inspection with each permit renewal. As previously stated, separate inspections will occur if and when there is a suspected violation at a particular vacation rental unit.

2. Require a license for each vacation rental unit, subject to an inspection of the unit by a county code enforcement officer prior to issuance of a license or license renewal.

Rationale: State licensing for vacation rentals can be set up with multiple units covered under one license when such units are held under single ownership. Staffbelieves, however, that for the county license, a better approach is needed, as proposed. That approach requires a separate license for each vacation rental unit. That requirement is appropriate for ease of tracking compliance of an individual unit, since inspections and investigations for violations including notices/warnings, citations, and fines (if any) will be handled on an individual unit basis.

3. Establish license application submittal requirements including rental unit manager contact information; evidence of a state license, local Business Tax Receipt, and local tourist tax account; parking information; verification of state license fire protection items (smoke alarms, emergency lighting, fire extinguisher); acknowledgement of various county regulations on parking, noise, nuisances, environmental and safety regulations, and fines/citations.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 5 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

Rationale: One key component for swiftly resolving complaints and correcting problems at a rental unit will involve the ability of a code enforcement officer to contact the unit manager at any time. Consequently, it is essential to require every licensee to provide manager contact information and to keep that information up to date. Through the other proposed application submittal items described above, staff will be able to verify compliance with state licensing requirements and local tax obligations. Finally, the proposed requirement for applicants to formally acknowledge county vacation regulations will effectively inform each applicant and put them "on notice" with respect to county requirements and unit owner obligations.

4. Establish special vacation rental regulations that include: a. Posting or displaying specific safety and "good neighbor" information in the

rental unit.

Rationale: This proposed requirement will provide convenient notice to every renter as to key county requirements and renter obligations. In addition, through this requirement, useful public information will be provided to renters.

b. Parking regulations specific to vacation rentals (references regulations previously adopted)

Rationale: This proposed regulation simply references the existing vacation rental special parking regulations, codified elsewhere, which will remain in force.

c. Prohibiting commercial events at residences (references regulations previously adopted)

Rationale: This proposed regulation simply references the existing prohibition on commercial events at residences, codified elsewhere, which will remain in force.

d. Maintaining a sleeping occupancy limit

STVRAC recommendation: Limit occupancy for adults (18 years or older) in a rental unit: 2 per bedroom + 2 adults

Staff recommendation: Limit occupancy to 2 persons per bedroom + 2 additional persons or the unit's septic tank/drainfield system capacity, whichever is less.

Rationale: Considerable STVRAC work involved setting a maximum sleeping occupancy limit. Although staff asserted, and the committee acknowledged, that such a limit could not be routinely enforced and in fact would be difficult to enforce, the committee felt that the limit would help prevent customers from booking too small of a unit and over-crowding a unit if a reasonable occupancy limit was set and was provided on advertisem*nts and rental offerings. Staff also asserted, and the committee also acknowledged, that the special parking regulations already adopted by the Board help prevent over-crowding day and night. Preventing overcrowding was determined to be a way of reducing potential negative neighborhood impacts ( e.g. traffic, noise) and avoiding an over-burdening of infrastructure.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 6 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

Based on federal Fair Housing guidelines, a reasonable starting point for an occupancy limit appears to be 2 persons per bedroom. Within Florida, there are a number of approaches that local governments take with respect to vacation rental occupancy limits. Some local governments have grandfathered in outright prohibitions of vacation rentals (Vero Beach), some have no specific vacation rental regulations and therefore no occupancy limits (Sebastian, Fellsmere), others have specific vacation rental regulations but no occupancy limits (Bal Harbor, Polk County), some have a 2 persons per bedroom limit (Marco Island, Monroe County), some have a 2 persons per bedroom limit that exempts children (Islamorada), and some have an occupancy allowance based on 2 persons per bedroom plus a limited number of additional persons (Flagler County, Ft. Lauderdale).

After consideration at two meetings and much discussion, the STVRAC settled on a sleeping occupancy limit for adults (18 years or older) in each rental of 2 per bedroom plus 2 adults. The committee felt that its recommended occupancy limit would help prevent over-crowding and would reasonably accommodate families while appropriately curtailing the use of a rental as an over-crowded "party house" by renters 18 years and up.

At its April 12, 2016 meeting, Board members discussed the issue of whether or not to exempt children from the occupancy limit, including the possibility of excluding "infants". In staff's opinion, an age-based occupancy threshold or exemption would be more problematic to enforce than an occupancy limit based on a formula that does not include age as a factor. It is also staff's opinion that an occupancy limit based upon size would still need a cap, so as not to result in very large houses with high, "lodge like" capacities of 20+ persons.

Staff's recommendation at the March STVRAC was for a simple "2 + 2" occupancy limit formula: 2 persons per bedroom plus 2 additional persons. Based upon concerns and comments expressed by Board members on April 12, staff now proposes an occupancy limit based on the "2 + 2" formula with an additional further limit for any unit on a septic/drainfield system, whereby the occupancy limit will not exceed the septic/drainfield system capacity as determined by the health department. System capacity limits set by the health department are based on a demand assumption of 2 persons per bedroom with additional capacity required based on certain living area size factors. In general, large septic/drainfield systems can be permitted for a large capacity expressed in number of persons that could exceed the "2+ 2" formula. As proposed, for a unit served by a septic/drainfield system, the maximum occupancy would be 2 persons per bedroom + 2 additional persons or the health department determined capacity for the rental unit's septic/drainfield system, whichever is less.

e. Providing fire protection items required for a state vacation rental license

Rationale: Current state vacation rental licensing requirements for single-family units require the following in each unit:

F:\Community DeYelopment\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 7 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

• Smoke alarms • Emergency lighting (activates when power goes out) • Fire extinguisher

No state inspection is conducted for these items; however, the proposed ordinance includes a requirement that a local inspection be conducted to ensure compliance.

With respect to fire safety, single-family homes are constructed and inspected for compliance with the building code and fire code requirements in effect at the time of building permit issuance. Those requirements have varied overtime. Generally, single­family homes are constructed with minimum standards for first floor exits to the outside via doors and windows. For many years, codes have required smoke alarms in single­family homes and since 2012 combination smoke alarm/CO ( carbon monoxide) alarms have been required in Indian River County for new homes.

According to IRC Fire Prevention and Building Department staff, single-family vacation rental units are required to meet building code and fire code requirements for single­family homes. Treating such units as residential dwellings rather than as a hotel/motel unit or lodging facility is consistent with the county's definition of "Hotel/motel and lodging facilities". That definition specifically states that" ... any residential dwelling unit offered for rent or lease for less than a month at a time shall not be considered a hotel/motel or lodging facility". Therefore, vacation rental units are treated as a type of residential dwelling.

Fire Prevention staff indicate that there are no fire-related occupancy limits or ratings for single-family homes like there are for hotels and commercial lodging facilities. Staff also indicate that' fire code standards for hotels and commercial lodging facilities are significantly different from standards applied to single-family homes, that they are not aware of any specific fire safety problems that are particular to vacation rental units, and that they are not aware of any technical justification for increasing local fire safety requirements or establishing local fire-related occupancy ratings for vacation rentals at this time.

Consequently, the proposed ordinance requires the special fire protection items required by the state for vacation rental units. By incorporating those items into the county's ordinance, the county will be able to inspect for and enforce provision of those items and will not need to rely on state enforcement for compliance.

f. Providing a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm

Rationale: Since 2012, new homes in Indian River County have had combination smoke alarm/carbon monoxide detectors (±$50). The proposed regulation would require any vacation rental unit with a gas appliance to have a carbon monoxide detector in addition to smoke alarms.

g. Keeping manager contact information up to date

F:\Cornrnunity Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 8 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

Rationale: As previously stated, up to date manager contac t information is essential for timely communications with code enforcement officers and swift resolution for problems that may occur at a vacation rental unit. In addition, failure to keep up to date manager contact information will subject a unit owner to a $100 fine under the proposed fine schedule, as explained later in this report.

h. Providing or otherwise stating the county vacation rental license number and sleeping occupancy limit in any advertisem*nt or rental offering associated with the vacation rental unit

Rationale: This is an essential component of tracking ads to a specific unit and of putting prospective renters on notice up-front, prior to booking a unit, that the unit has a sleeping occupancy limit. Such tracking is needed to monitor compliance and such notice should help prevent over-crowding of a unit.

The proposed vacation rental ordinance for Indian River County is attached (see attachment 11).

Monroe County Regulations During discussions on local vacation rentals, the Monroe County vacation rental ordinance has been held out as a comprehensive "model" vacation rental ordinance and the Board has asked staff to analyze that ordinance. Staffs research indicates that Monroe County's vacation rental requirements are contained within a combination of adopted code provisions and non-code application requirements (see attachment 8).

For purposes of review and comparison, Monroe County's vacation rental requirements can be broken down into a number of categories, as follows:

• Watercraft/trailer regulations • Parking restrictions • Noise regulations • Trash pickup requirements • Licensing requirements • Occupancy limit • Health/safety requirements • Penalties/fines

In comparing Monroe County's vacation rental requirements to Indian River County's existing regulations, staffs finding is that, with the exception oflicensing-related conditions and occupancy limits, most of Monroe County's requirements are already addressed in our county's regulations as they apply to vacation rental use of single-family homes. For example, Indian River County's existing regulations - as they apply to watercrafts at residences, parking, noise, trash pickup, health and safety, and violation penalties - are comparable to and in some cases more restrictive than Monroe County's vacation rental requirements. The herein proposed vacation rental ordinance, coupled with existing requirements, will bring Indian River County's regulations on par with Monroe County's requirements.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Considel'lltion of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 9 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

There are certain provisions of Monroe County's vacation rental ordinance that are not covered in Indian River County's existing regulations or in the proposed ordinance, for reasons explained hereafter:

• Requirement of posting of license number, manager contact information and code enforcement contact information visible from the front property line of a vacation rental; ·

• Requirement of notice of a license application with appeal procedures mailed to all property owners within 300 feet of a proposed rental site at least 30 days prior to license approval; and

• Procedures for revocation of a vacation rental permit.

Regarding the posting of license number and contact information visible from the front property line, staff's position is that such a posting is unnecessary beyond what is proposed: that license numbers be required on all ads and rental agreements, and that up to date manager contact information be provided to code enforcement officers. In addition, staff does not support such signage since it could be unsightly and would work against the county's objective of having vacation rental units seamlessly fit into neighborhoods and appear like any other residence.

With respect to appeal procedure, notice to adjacent property owners and permit revocation procedures, unlike Monroe County, Indian River County is not in a legal position to withhold approval of a properly submitted and complete vacation rental licensing application, and is pre­empted by state law from revoking a license and denying a vacation rental use. Consequently, an appeal procedure is not applicable in Indian River County although code enforcement actions (including fines and citations) are applicable, as proposed and described later in this report. In contrast to Indian River County's position, Monroe County's ordinance is grandfathered-in (adopted prior to 2011) and therefore Monroe County has the legal authority under state law to deny or revoke a vacation rental permit and use, authority that Indian River County does not have. Persistent violations of the county ordinance could be relayed to the state regulating authority, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, for possible action against the state issued license.

Staff's conclusion is that Indian River County's existing and proposed regulations adequately address items covered in the Monroe County regulations and are appropriate for Indian River County. A comparison chart of Monroe County and Indian River County existing and proposed requirements is attached (see attachment 10).

• Recommended Fine Schedule for Violations

Fines & Citations Powers

Staff primarily enforces county codes by one of two means: by bringing cases to the Indian River County Code Enforcement Board (CEB) for Board issuance of orders and fines, or by issuing citations (similar to traffic tickets). The CEB typically imposes fines of$ l 00 per day for unresolved code violations. As an alternative to the CEB hearing process, county code enforcement officers have the power to issue citations for various violations, subject to specific procedures set forth in County Code Section 103.07 and FS Chapter 162. County Resolution No. 92-59 established a schedule of citation fine amounts for various types of violations, including a $50 fine for vehicle parking and storage violations (per vehicle) and $50 for noise violations.

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 10 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

Citation procedures include issuance of a warning for an initial violation with time given for compliance. Most violations (80% to 90%) are resolved at this step in the process, without further code enforcement action. A violation that occurs thereafter may be cited per occurrence. Under the 92-59 citation resolution currently in place, for example, a $50 citati on may be issued for each vehicle in violation of a parking regulation after a warning has been issued to the owner of the premises. Citations are typically issued to the landowner, but may also include a tenant, renter, or other identified violator, depending on the circ*mstances and evidence.

Specific types of violations and associated fine amounts can be added to the County's current citation schedule by adoption of a resolution, as was done in 2013 when fertilizer ordinance violations were added. It should be noted that a citation issued by code enforcement staff can be appealed to either County Court or to the Indian River County Code Enforcement Board. After due process, if the citation fine is upheld and remains unpaid, the fme is recorded in the public records as a lien against any real or personal property owned by the respondent.

Fines/Citations for Vacation Rentals

Regarding short term vacation rentals, the types of violations anticipated to occur most often that would warrant citations are parking violations, commercial events at residences, failure to obtain or maintain a county license, and violations of vacation rental license conditions. County Resolution 92-59, which established fines and notice time frames for various code violations, includes fines for general illegal parking and storage ($ 50 per vehicle), but does not list a fine for commercial events at residences, for parking violations specific to vacation rentals, for failure to obtain or maintain a license, or for violations oflicense conditions. For those reasons, the 92-29 citation resolution needs to be revised to list fines for those violations. Moreover, the revisions should distinguish between first time violations and repeat violations, with higher fines for repeat violations to deter recurrence.

For vacation rental vehicle parking violations, staff and STVRAC recommended, and the attached fine schedule proposes, that a $50 fine (per vehicle) for a first violation after an initial 24 hour notice and a $100 fine (per vehicle) for repeat violations are appropriate amounts. The committee and staff also recommended, and the attached schedule proposes, that a deadline of 30 business days (±6 weeks) after initial notice be established for an unlicensed rental unit. As proposed, if that deadline passes without the unit owner obtaining a county vacation rental license, a $100 per day fine will start and accrue for each day that a violator has failed to obtain a license after the 30 day deadline. It should be noted that a violator could come into immediate compliance by pulling all vacation rental advertisem*nts and short-term rental offerings, and ceasing all short-term rental activity until they obtain a license.

Regarding commercial events at residences, fines need to be substantially higher so as not to be absorbed as a "cost of doing business" for holding such an event. Consistent with allowances under FS Chapter 162, staff supports and the committee recommended that the County establish a fine of $1,000 for a first violation and $5,000 for repeat violations of the commercial event at residence restrictions:

F:\Community Development\CurDev\P&Z\2016\Consideration of Proposed Vacation Rental Ordinance Establishing Local License 11 Requirement and Vacation Rental Regulations 052616 PZC.docx

After-Hours Enforcement

Although the County Code Enforcement Section's office hours are weekdays 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., code enforcement staff will conduct limited enforcement investigati ons on weekends or "after hours," particularly when a recurring violation at a location has been identified and is anticipated to occur at those times. If a complainant observes a violation occurring on weekends or after hours, the complainant is advised to:

• Contact the sheriff's office if the violation is a public disturbance or a public safety hazard warranting immediate response; or

• Document the violation (e.g., photos) and advise code enforcement staff for follow-up action to deter future/recurring violations. In such cases, code enforcen1ent staff will either bring the matter forward to the Code Enforcement Board or issue a citation based on the documentation provided by the complainant, or will follow-up with after hour investigation as warranted for further documentation if the violation is recurring in nature.

The proposed fine schedule for violations of county vacation rental and commercial events at residences regulations is attached (see attachment 12).

• Recommended "Progress Report"

As a final matter for discussion, the STVRAC considered the benefits of a "progress report" evaluation of the proposed vacation rental ordinance after adoption and implementation. Committee members expressed a desire for staff to perform an evaluation and provide a "progress report" to the Board as a public discussion item one to two years after ordinance adoption. In the end, the committee decided to recommend that the Board direct staff to present a "progress report'' to the Board 1 year after adoption of the vacation rental ordinance. At its April 12 meeting, Board members indicated general agreement with the committee's recommendation. Consequently, staff has incorporated into the recommended motion a directive for staff to prepare and present a progress report one year after adoption of the vacation rental ordinance.

RECOMMENDATION

Staff recommends that the Planning and Zoning Commission recommend that the Board of County Commissioners:

1. Adopt the proposed Indian River County vacation rental ordinance (attachment 11).

2. Adopt a resolution establishing the proposed fine/citation schedule for violations of county vacation rental regulations (attachment 12).

3. Direct staff to prepare and present a "progress report" on the vacation rental ordinance one year after adoption of the vacation rental ordinance.

New Business-Stan Boling, Community Development Director

a) Local License Fine Amounts (revised)-Action Required

Mr. Stan Boling, Community Development Director, summarized his memorandum dated March 8, 2016, entitled "Re-consideration of Proposed Fine Amount for Local License Violations", with Attachment 1, providing overview and analysis concerning proposed fine amounts and citations for violations of county regulations for vacation rentals and commercial events at residences. A copy of the memorandum with attachments are on file in the Commission Office.

Mr. Boling pointed out in the last STVRAC meeting in Februarf, 2016, the committee reviewed a recommended revised schedule for citations and fines which added items to the existing fine schedule such as vacation rental parking violations, failure to maintain up-to-date rental manager contact information, and commercial event violations which will have a stringent fine. He reminded the Committee of the discussions regarding failure to obtain or maintain a County vacation rental license wherein the Committee asked for reconsideration of the fine amount proposed; hence, the proposed revision on Page 3 of the Citation Ordinance was increased from $25 per day fine to $100 per day fine.

A lengthy discussion ensued by the Committee members and the general public regarding once compliance was reached, after having been allowed 30-days to correct, and should the same violation repeat, the fine would start again, accumulating until the license was obtained, without an add1t1onal 30-day warning. Discussion included debating a $100 a day fine versus $500 a day fine.

Mr. Roland DeBlois, Chief Environmental & Code Enforcement confirmed the proposed revised schedule of fines was consistent with other County's Code Enforcement fines. He pointed out when Code Enforcement issued a renewal license violation, an additional 30-day warning was provided, given the time frame of the license renewal (3 years); however, with a general violation such as a parking violation, should compliance occur one week and then the next week, violation occurs again, another 30-day warning would not be given. He stated some discretion was provided as to the duration between warnings.

ON MOT1ION BY Dr. CeWaters, Sr., SECONDED BY Mrs. Waldrop, the members votad 5-1 (Molinari 01>posed) ·to adoptad staffs recommendati1on for a 30-day warning, then $100 per day for not having a license; not including any other violat ion.

SUBJECT: Proposed C:ornprehensive Vac;:Jtion Rental Ordinance

DATE: Junf:! 9, 2015

The Moor:ngs o f Vero Property Owners' fu sodat:io n, Inc. {MPOA) has ovP.r 1,150 property owner members in The M ,oodngs area of Indian River County (JRC), induding over 1.90 individlial'

homeowners. Because of its concern with the abuses of short­term rentals of individual homeowners' proper ties ,in JRC, the M POA created its Short-t ,erm Rentals Special Comn1ittee {Committee}.

·1·he Committ ee ha.s prepared and at t ached to this Memorandum a proposed Ord inance for adopt ion by the IRC Board ,of Count'/ Commissioners. The Ordinance proposes a comprehensive approach to tile regulat,on e>n vacation rentafs hi IRC, based cm similar ordinances alr~ady adopted by other Florida

munidpa!ities.

The Ordinance woufd apply to both short-term (less than 28 days} rentai•s and ev,ent rentals (for V•leddings and otht~r con1mercfai Events). It also covers parking at properties subject to short-term

rentals. It reguiat es noise, trash und other issues related to such rentals. It also establishes a mechanism for handling neighbors'

complaints about those rentals. Further, it reqlti r ,es the owners of such r,ental propert ies to obtarn a ,,a cation renta f permit, provides r(.!)Jated procedures for revocation of such permits for vh:.>lations o·f the Ordinance, and olso establishes fines for a failure to obtain a rec~uired permit.

The Committee notes that the Ordinance's Regulations sect ion (a){lO){d) requires the o,wners of a vacation renta I property to comply with the Amerkm1s with !Disabilities Act, u~ appiicable. As most such pro perties (other than t hose occupled by an owner} are stibject to the ADA, that requirement may be one r·cus. On the other hand, the Committee also notes that the Ordinance does not provide (2s do s;milar ordinances of other Florida

municipaHties) that the property must comply with F.S. 196.061 with resp,ect to the aba11donment of a property's homestead e:xemption, if it is rented.

The Committee is willing to s,end a representatrve VJ any Short Term Rental Committ1zt~ established by the !RC Board of Countv Commis.siont?rs.

STATEMENT FROM THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSIONERS RELATING TO THE FORTHCOMING COMMISION MEETING OF MAY 26, 2016 AT 7:00 PM.

MAY 16, 2016.

Dear Commissioners:

In 2015 the unincorporated South Beach area of Indian River County consisted of 2,609 residential households who paid $50,715,792 in property taxes on a total assessed value of $3,502,695,728 for the same properties.

Since 1992 the South Beach Property Owners Association (SBPOA) has been the umbrella civic organization representing the quality of life and property interests of the majority of the area households. We continue to do this today.

Since 2012 when the Board of County Commissioners (BCC) revoked our protective grandfather clause and allowed commercial public lodging businesses to operate in our residential neighborhoods, we have witnessed a progressive deterioration in the quality of life standards and property values of our constituents.

The SBPOA has and continues to do everything in its power to arrest this progressive deterioration. On May 5, 2015 we made representations to the BCC to implement regulations to redress the illegal, disruptive and destructive conduct of these businesses operating on our front door steps. The BCC passed motions to develop parking and event regulations and to instruct county staff to study and report back to them on the feasibility of adopting the comprehensive and gold standard portfolio of regulations used by Monroe County for decades. The Monroe ordinance has withstood decades of legal challenges all the way to the Florida Supreme Court in 2007. (See Attachment A, Page 15)

The BCC with your August 13, 2015 quality control and measured oversight adopted parking, event and sea turtle lighting protection ordinances on October 13, 2015.

The BCC and County staff did not however follow the spirit and intent of the passed motion of study and consideration of the Monroe County gold standard ordinance.

Instead it diverted this gold standard and best practices document to a group of individuals it titled the "Short Term Vacation Rental Advisory Committee (STVRAC) ". This group of individuals consisted of two majority functional types, namely individuals generating monies and profits from the active conducting of commercial rental (both

Plannin~ <11JJ Zonint1 Co1mni:,,i0n · - \1,;y I ii, 20 lo

short and alleged long term contract) trade in residential communities and other individuals who for a variety of reasons registered in writing an aversion and disquiet for regulations and rules in general. During the six month (October 2015-March 2016) tenure and the 10.2 hours of deliberations of this committee, members of the majority rental trade group continued to conduct their revenue and profit generating rental businesses while considering proposed regulations and ordinances. Some proposals such as a regulation to convert from a lagoon polluting septic tank and drai nage system to a sewer system may have had a profit diminishing impact on their businesses.

At no point at any stage during the 10.2 hours of deliberations did any member of any group of this committee declare a material, perceived or any kind of personal and business financial conflict of interest. At no stage were any of these members called upon by any County official to declare a perceived or real conflict of interest or recuse themselves from debate or voting.

As a result of the composition, modus operandi and conduct of these groups of individuals, civic groups and other individuals calling into question unregulated and destructive rental business practices and conduct were relegated to the status of sidelined spectators allowed to be present during the deliberations but were to be ignored.

The SBPOA was present for every minute (612) of every meeting (6) of these conflicted and compromised hearings and registered its disapproval of the proceedings, debate and votes for a variety of reasons, primarily lack of due diligence.

The SBPOA made it very clear to County staff and all present it would reserve its engagement and participation in the consideration, development and implementation of bona fide regulations to a later stage and before a venue/tribunal of un-conflicted and fair minded individuals. (See Attachment B).

The venue/tribunal intended was your Planning and Zoning Commission.

In short Commissioners, we have waited eight months for the opportunity to be heard on the proposed ordinance regulating the destructive conduct of rental businesses operating on our residential doorsteps and those of our constituents.

Specifically, we have waited eight months for the opportunity to be allowed to present substantial due diligence evidence before a venue/tribunal that will afford us due process and due consideration. The current draft ordinance (Attachment C) in your possession is defective, deficient and ineffective in many aspects and is also devoid of context and background necessary to provide you with the information to make an informed, un-conflicted and impartial judgment. In essence, the present document is more akin to a multiple choice quiz asking you to check off boxes rather than a working document to facilitate due process and due consideration of the opinion of all sides.

Our presentation of the required background, context and delivery of the on-point required evidence will fill the voids, correct the defects and deficiencies and make the

task of the Commission more tenable and credible. We will also be providing the best practices, gold standard Monroe County ordinance so it may finally see the light of day intended by the majority vote of the BCC over a year ago. (See Attachment D).

In conclusion we ask one and only one courtesy from the Chair and the rest of the Commissioners - the courtesy is due process, patience and a reasonable amount of time to present our evidence and argument, in the context of the 10.2 hours already afforded others in this matter.

Statement

Statement of George D. F. Lamborn, President, The South Beach Property Owners Association, Inc. to the Board of County Commissioners, Indian River County, April 12, 2016.

Mr. Chairman, members of the Board of County Commissioners,

I am George Lamborn. I am the President of the South Beach Property Owners Association.

SBPOA was formed almost twenty-five years ago to safeguard the interests of the 2,618 property owners and 3,280 voters of the South Barrier island, unincorporated Indian River County, whose property is collectively worth by conservative estimate some $1.4 billion.

The organization I represent is the "Community" part of that "Community Conversation" the Board of County Commissioners said it wants to engage to discuss the Short Term vacation Rental problem.

The South Beach Property Owners Association, the Indian River Neighborhood Association, and the North Beach Civic Association represent the interests of the 99% of property owners who own their properties for no other reason than the quiet enjoyment of a residence, and whose quality of life, and property value, is at risk from commercialization of neighborhoods.

Like your Short Term Vacation Rental Advisory Committee, the Board members of the SBPOA are volunteers, but in our case, we have no professional or financial interest in the recommendations we make.

We donated our personal time to study the i.ssue:;, follow the proceedings cf the Short Term Vacation Rental Advisory Committee, and reasonably e.<pected to be able to exercise our First­Amendment right to spt::ak frP.ely to the issues m a pubhc hearing.

have followed the proceedings of the Short Term Vacation Rental Advisory Committee very closely. I sent our representatives, who, along with IRNA and North Beach Civic Association, attended each and every Committee meeting.

I Wl$h to summarize the South Beach Property Owners Assodation's view of the Committee and its work with these remarks:

• I am disappointed to. note that there was very little in the way of d1alogut: between our Community organization~--representmg the width and breadth of thfs County-- and your Committee.

• The representative,; that we have sent to talk with yC'ur Committee have not been treated with due respect.

I have chaired a committee or two during my career on Wall Street. One of them was called the Futures Industry Association, FIA. Another was called the National Futures Association, NFA.

South Beach Property Owners Association, Inc. • P. 0. Box 643093 • Vero Beach, FL 32964

Page 2 of 2

• The Chair of your Committee was incapable of rendering impartial rulings due to his personal conflict of interest as a vacation rental operator, and as a long-time advocate of the industry.

• In many cases, your Committee made recommendations in the absence of essential information. SBPOA and IRNA have attempted to share data and analysis with the Committee, and the Committee expressed no interest in our research and findings.

• Our analysis and recommendations seem to have had little, or no impact on this Committee whatsoever.

Did we, the Public get what we were promised from this Committee? In short, I must conclude the answer is a categorical 'No.'

No matter what the Legislature has done, or what the County Commission will do, this issue will not go away because it involves a taking of property rights - the most basic right to quiet enjoyment-from the 99%, in order to benefit the 1%.

And that math does not portend well for the public perception of what you have done so far.

c) Occupancy Limits - Joe Paladin, Vice Chairman

Vice Chairman Joe Paladin shared information he discussed with Commissioner Tim Zorc regarding the direction the Board of County Commissioners provided at a Commission Meeting on December 15, 2015 concerning some kind of occupancy limits and how to track those in the short term rental business who were not licensed, and how the County could assist the unlicensed in understanding the need to be licensed.

Vice Chairman Paladin outlined suggestions discussed with Commissioner Zorc such as posting the occupancy limits in plain sight either in the home or on the establishment for easy reference and enforcement purposes; and how occupancy limits were established and controlled; i.e., by square feet, by the number of rooms, etc.

Chairman Powell mentioned the possibility of discussing regulations on what the short term rental advertisem*nts were required to provide; i.e., occupancy limits, licensing information, taxes, etc. at a future committee meeting.

Discussions ensued by members of the public concerning determining and enforcing occupancy limits, and establishing advertised occupancy. References were made to Monroe County's requirements for licensing included occupancy limits. Comments were made concerning the number and size of bedrooms and living area in the short term vacation home would help establish the occupancy numbers.

ON MOTION BY Vice Chairman Paladin, SECONDED BY Glenn Heran, to direct County Staff to provide a recommendation and/or formulas for controlling occupancy limits and enforcement.

UNDER DISCUSSION, Mr. Heran said the suggestion regarding controlling occupancy limits provided "teeth" in the enforcement process.

No. SC06-1204

ELIZABETH J. NEUMONT, et al . ., Appellants,

vs.

STATE OF FLORIDA, MONROE COUNTY, FLORIDA, Appellee.

[September 27, 2007]

CANTERO, J.

The appellants seek to invalidate a :Monroe County ordinance limiting the

use of homes a~ vacation rental8. We must decide what kind of changes to a

proposed ordinance during the enactment process are "substantial or material" so

that the process must start from scratch. Reviewing the case on appeal from a

summary judgment, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit

certified a question to us. We have exercised our discretionary jurisdiction to

answer it. See art. V, § 3(b)(6), Fla. Const. For the reasons discussed below, we

hold that the changes to an ordinance during the enactment process are only

"substantial or material" if they change the ordinance's general purpose.

Nothing in the enacted ordinance rendered the advertised title misleading or

inaccurate. Thus, there was no need to restart the enactment procedure. 3

III. CONCLUSION

For the reasons stated, we hold that a change in the general purpose of a

proposed ordinance is the definition of "substantial or material change" most

compatible with the text of section 125.66(4)(b). The general purpose test strikes

an effective balance between providing the public with adequate notice and

permitting the efficient modification of proposed ordinances in response to public

input. Having answered the certified question, we return this case to the United

States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

It is so ordered.

LEWIS, C.J., and WELLS, ANSTEAD, PARIENTE, QUINCE, and BELL, JJ., concur.

NOT FINAL UNTIL TIME EXPIRES TO FILE REHEARING MOTION, AND IF FILED, DETERMINED.

Certified Question of Law from the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit- Case No. 04-13610

Eric Grant, Sacramento, California, Harold E. Wolfe, Jr., and William H. Pincus, West Palm Beach, Florida, and James H. Hicks of Hicks, Brams and Motto, West Palm Beach, Florida,

3. Plaintiffs also argue that the County's procedures in enacting the ordinance violated due process. That issue, however, is for the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals to decide.

Florida's orange crop estimate gets sunnier

F lorida's citrus orange crop estimate has gotten sunnier.

Federal agricultural officials said Tuesday that the estimate for Florida's orange crop has increased 7

percent over the previous month's estimate.

Florida orange growers now are expected to produce 81.1 million boxes in the 2015-2016 season. The rise

comes primarily from an extra 5 million boxes of Valencia oranges, which now are expected to produce

45 million boxes.

Early-to-midseason varieties also jumped slightly to 36.1 million boxes. The grapefruit crop estimate rose

slightly to 10.8 million boxes. The current orange crop estimate is still significantly lower than the 2014-

2015 season's 96.8 million boxes of oranges.

Florida's citrus industry has been decimated in the past decade by the citrus greening disease. But the

state still is forecast to be the largest orange and grapefruit producer in the country.

California is expected to produce 52.5 million boxes of oranges and 3.9 million boxes of grapefrut. Texas

is forecast for 1.6 million boxes of oranges and 5.2 million boxes of grapefruit.

California produces almost all of the nation's tangerines.

Impact of Citrus Greening on Citrus Operations in Florida1

Ariel Singerman and Pilar Useche2

Introduction Florida is the largest orange-producing state in the United States, and the third largest orange producer in the world behind Brazil and China. Approximately 95% of all oranges grown in Florida are processed for juice (USDA/NASS 2015). The Florida citrus industry and its position in the global citrus market is being jeopardized by a bacterial disease known as citrus greening or Huanglongbing (HLB). HLB adversely affects the vascular systems of citrus trees, limiting nutrient uptake. Consequently, the disease reduces yield, fruit size and quality, and increases tree mortality and cost of production. First found in Florida in 2005, HLB has spread rapidly across the state (CREC 2015a).

As ofJanuary 2016, there is neither a cure nor an economi­cally viable option for managing HLB-infected trees. Since HLB was first found in 2005, orange acreage and yield in Florida have decreased by 26% and 42%, respectively. Orange production dropped from 242 million to 104.6 million boxes in 2014. Even though the industry acknowl­edges that HLB has reached epidemic proportions across the state, estimates of the level of infection and its impact on citrus operations are scarce. This article presents the first growers' -survey-based estimates of both the level of HLB infection in Florida and the impact of HLB on citrus operations in Florida.

Surveying the Florida Citrus lndust1·y We conducted a survey of individuals involved in citrus production in Florida during a biannual event organized at the University of Florida's Citrus Research and Education Center. There were 326 attendees at the event, including growers, researchers, extension agents, the media, and state officials. The number of growers was estimated at 200. The number of completed surveys was 76, giving a response rate of 38%. Survey participants operated 156,614 acres, which accounts for approximately 30% of the total acreage devoted to citrus in Florida.

Survey-based f.s'timates on HLB Impact. To quantify the impact of HLB on citrus operations in Florida, we asked participants to answer three ques-tions (Figures 2, 3, and 4 show the distribution of their responses). First, we asked them to estimate the percentage of acres in their operations infected with HLB (Figure 2). The percentage of growers who indicated that 100% of their acres were infected - that is, at least one tree in every single acre of their groves was infected with the bacteria - was 57%, Another 24% of participants stated that the percentage of acres in their operations infected with HLB was greater than or equal to 80% but less than 100%. The average percentage of acres infected with the bacteria across responses was 90%.

Second, we asked participants to estimate the percentage ofHLB-fected trees in their operations (Figure 3). In this case, 49% of the individuals stated their operations have a percentage of infected trees that is greater than or equal to 80% but less than 100%, while 15% indicated that 100% of their trees are infected. Together these two groups account for 64% of the respondents. Taking the average across all responses, the average percentage of trees infected with HLBwas80%.

Toe third question, aimed at collecting data on the impact of the disease, asked growers to estimate the average percentage yield loss per acre they attribute to HLB (Figure 4). We used the midpoint of the ranges. Combining the categories reporting a yield loss greater than 40% accounts

Analysis by Region To analyze the survey responses by region, we categorized the location of the participants' operations into three areas: (1) central Florida, (2) central/southwest Florida, and (3) southwest Florida. Column 1 in Table 1 shows that 44 participants had operations in central Florida; 11 had operations in central/southwest Florida, and 21 had opera­tions in southwest Florida.

Column 2 in Table 1 shows the average size of the operation for each region, which were 693, 1,962, and 5,818 acres for central Florida, central/southwest Florida, and southwest Florida, respectively. The average operation size is signifi­cantly larger in southwest Florida than in central Florida because of three severe freezes in the 1980s, which killed a large proportion of citrus trees. The industry responded by planting new larger groves farther south of central Florida, which used to be the state's primary citrus-growing region.

Even though the majority of the respondents in our sample were from central Florida, much of the acreage was in southwest Florida (Column 3 in Table 1), which resembles the actual citrus acreage distribution reflected in the 2014 USDA Florida Citrus Statistics (USDA/NASS 2015). In our

Figure 4. Reported percentage of yield loss attributed to HLB by citrus industry surv~y respondents

sample, 71 % of the total acreage is in southwest Florida, 18% in central Florida, and 11 % is distributed across central/southwest Florida. USDA reports that 54% of the total citrus acreage in 2014 was in southwest Florida while 29% was in central Florida. This distribution also closely follows the regional contributions in terms of production (boxes), with southwest Florida contributing 52% of total production and central Florida contributing 30%.

Columns 4, 5, and 6 in Table 1 show the average percentage ofHLB-infected acres, HLB-infected trees, and HLB-related yield loss per acre, respectively. Interestingly, the percentage ofHLB-infected acres in southwest Florida was 4% larger relative to central Florida while the percentage of HLB­infected trees was 6% lower in southwest Florida relative to central Florida. Furthermore, the average percentage of HLB-related yield loss per acre in southwest Florida was 12% lower than in central Florida. The percentage of HLB-infected acres and average percentage ofHLB-related yield loss for operations with groves in central/southw:st Florida were the midpoint relative to the other two regions. However, these operations had the lowest percentage of HLB-infected trees.

It can be argued that the lower percentage of HLB-infected trees and percentage ofHLB-related yield loss in southwest Florida relative to central Florida are due to the size of the operations. Larger citrus-growing operations can attain economies of scale. These larger operations are typically owned by corporations, which can also be vertically integrated into fruit processing or packing operations. Such integration can allow a higher level of spending in the caretaking of trees in southwest Florida relative to the smaller operations found in central Florida.

Another important consideration regarding the size of operations is related to Citrus Health Management Areas (CHMAs). A CHMA is a voluntary, area-wide pest management approach suggested by researchers from the

Ii,1pact of Citrus Gree11ing 011 Citrus Operations in Florida

University of Florida to control the Asian Citrus Psyllid (ACP). Each CHMA constitutes a grouping of growers who work cooperatively to coordinate insecticide application to

control the spread of ACP across neighboring commercial citrus groves. The idea behind this cooperative effort is that it provides a larger and more lasting effect relative to individual (uncoordinated) treatments because it mini­mizes movement ofpsyllids between groves (CREC 2015b). However, due to the decrease in profitability, many growers have reduced inputs for caretaking of trees, including insecticide applications. Thus, they either do not participate in CHMAs or do so in a limited fashion. However, by doing so, these growers impose a cost on their neighbors. Larger operations are less dependent upon the willingness of neighboring growers to participate in CHMAs and are better able to control for ACP and manage the impact of HLB.

Siummary The Florida citrus industry currently faces the challenges imposed by HLB: decreasing yields and production, lower quality fruit, and higher tree mortality rates. All of which have resulted in an increased cost of production. This article summarizes the results of a survey conducted to obtain growers' estimates on the level of infection and impact of HLB on citrus operations in Florida. From these assessments, we found that, on average, the current percentage ofHLB-infected acres and HLB-infected trees in a citrus operation in Florida are 90% and 80%, respectively. Furthermore, compared to pre-HLB levels, the average percentage of HLB-related yield Joss that growers attribute to HLB is 41 %. In addition, citrus operations in central Florida experience a 12% higher yield loss to HLB relative to those in southwest Florida. These findings are useful in providing growers, stakeholders, researchers, and govern­mental agencies an industry-wide status of the progress and impact ofHLB.

Can A Tiny Wasp Save The Citrus Industry? May 18, 2016 · 1:56 PM ET

AMANDA SOLLIDAY

FROM KAWC ...L. . .

Guy Davies, an inspector of the Florida Division of Plant Industry, shows an orange that is showing signs of "citrus

greening." The disease is caused by a bacterium carried by the Asian citrus psyllid.

Joe Raed/e/Getty Images

Researchers in Arizona are fighting fire with fire. They're collecting new data on a

wasp that may help slow the spread of citrus greening, a plant disease that has

devastated millions of acres of citrus crops, particularly in Florida.

The disease is spread by the Asian citrus psyllid, which is no bigger than the head of a

pin. The psyllid feeds on citrus trees and carries in its gut the bacteria that cause

greening. Leaves become twisted and fruit becomes withered and unusable. Once a

tree is infected, there is no cure. Eventually, it dies.

The parasitic wasp, Tamarixia Radiata, is a predator of the Asian citrus psyllid. The

wasps are so tiny that scientists can ship 200 of them in a vial about the size of a photo

film canister.

Bobby Baker, a technician with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, looks for the Asian citrus psyllid on a lemon tree in

Yuma County, Ariz.

Amanda So/liday/KAWC

Bobby Baker, a technician with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), has been

receiving weekly shipments of the vials.

"They arrive in a cooler, and they're chilled ... so it keeps them dormant," Baker says.

The insects come from Pakistan. They are reared in a University of California­

Riverside laboratory and sent to Baker. He and an Arizona Department of Agriculture

inspector release the wasps at sites in Yuma and Mohave counties.

"We're lucky because here in Yuma County ... we have not found the disease yet,"

Baker said.

The Asian citrus psyllid resides in parts of Arizona, but not the disease. Citrus

quarantines are in place in seven of the state's counties to prevent the spread of the

insect.

But greening has been discovered just next door in residential trees in California.

The disease has already wreaked havoc upon the $10 billion citrus industry in Florida,

where scientists are trying to produce greening-resistant trees through conventional

breeding. The problem is that these trees will require years of testing. So researchers

are scrambling to find short-term solutions.

Greg Simmons, a USDA entomologist, is the project leader tasked to find biological

control agents for the Asian citrus psyllid in California and Arizona.

THE SALT

How Long Can Florida's Citrus Industry Survive?

"It's a field ... we call classical biocontrol, where we try to establish a new agent in the

environment and sort of reunite a natural enemy with its pest species that it has

evolved to attack," Simmons said.

Tamarixia only attacks the Asian citrus psyllid, something known as host-specificity.

A parasitic wasp finds a host and lays eggs inside its body. When the eggs hatch, new

wasps emerge and kill the host as they exit.

The goal is for the wasps to remain in the environment as long as the Asian citrus

psyllid is around. The Arizona Department of Agriculture and USDA are monitoring

the entire state to find psyllids and respond to any new infestations.

"We think hot summers in the Yuma area probably limit the psyllid population a little

bit," Simmons says, but he adds that the pest can reproduce well in spring and fall,

and in cooler microclimates. This means the insect still poses a risk to the citrus

industry and backyard citrus in Arizona.

The experimental trees for the trials in Yuma County are all located in residential areas

- with permission from homeowners. And the wasps have already established

populations at other Arizona sites.

It's spring, and new tree growth attracts the psyllid.

"This would be an ideal place for them, right here," Baker said. "This new growth is

like perfect territory for them."

So far, there is feeding damage but no psyllids. Baker said the tiny wasps can spot their

prey better than we can.

Small chance of home prices falling in South Florida, report says

s outh Florida homeowners have little to fear in the way of falling prices, new data show.

The likelihood of price declines in Palm Reach County in the next two years is 3 percent, according to a

report from Arch Mortgage Insurance Co., a private mortgage insurer based in Walnut Creek, Calif.

Broward and Miami-Dade counties and 22 other areas in Florida have a 2 percent chance of price

declines. The national average is 5 percent.

"I'm bullish," said Ralph DeFranco, chief economist for Arch. "I think it's a good time to buy. Interest

rates are low, so buyers should lock in while they can."

The Arch risk index analyzes median home prices from the Federal Housing Finance Agency while

factoring in regional unemployment rates, affordability, change in population, housing starts and

delinquent mortgages.

The South Florida housing market is strong, but sales and prices are starting to cool, analysts say.

Still, Brad Hunter, the Palm ncach County-based chief economist for the Metrostudy research firm, said

he isn't concerned about a market tumble.

"One could easily make a strong case that prices will keep moving up, albeit at a slower pace," he said. ''I

think it's a single-digit probability that we see a real decline in home prices."

Hunter added that even if FHFA median prices fall, that just might mean more lower- and mid-priced

homes are selling and not indicate values of all homes are on the decline.

Jack McCabe, an analyst in Deerfield Beach, said that's exactly what could happen. While a housing

slowdown will continue through 2016, he expects prices of luxury homes and condominiums to be most

affected. Strong demand and limited supply of homes in lower price ranges will continue to nudge

values of those properties higher, he said.

"This is not going to be a total market crash like it was last decade," McCabe said.

Ten-X, an online real estate marketplace in Irvine, Calif., released a report Thursday showing the top

real estate markets for the spring. Palm Beach County was fourth, while Broward was fifth. Miami-Dade

ranked 19.

Seattle was No. 1, while Portland, Ore., was second. Ten-X said it ranked markets based on home price

increases, affordability and future demand as a result of economic and demographic conditions.

"Florida, in general, seems to be doing really well," said Rick Sharga, executive vice president of Ten-X.

"Of the states that were hit hardest during the crash, Florida still has the most room to grow to get back

to peak housing prices."

While most housing forecasts are optimistic, there are concerns brewing.

Mortgage company Freddie Mac said last week that affordability is becoming more of an issue in South

Florida because wages aren't keeping pace with home prices. And earlier this year, Fitch Ratings said

homes in the tri-county region are overvalued.

Palm licach Comity homes are above value bys percent to 10 percent, according to Fitch, while Broward

properties are overvalued by 10 percent to 15 percent.

Fitch said Miami-Dade County was 15 percent to 20 percent above value, matching Phoenix, Riverside,

Calif., and San Francisco as the most overpriced regions among major metro areas nationwide.

Sunshine State can't shake the No. 1

foreclosure spot By .l!.~1•Llf..irl ,:l!::r. Published: Mrmday, May 16, 2016 at 12:59 p.m.

Florida is still No. 1 - in foreclosures.

Mortgage lenders closed on 69,162 foreclosures in the state in the 12-month period ended in March, according to data provider CoreLogic.

The good news: That was down by 41,235 foreclosures, or 37 percent, when compared with 2015.

The bad news: The state accounted for nearly 15 percent of all the foreclosures nationwide in the past year.

The foreclosure rate in the Sarasota-Manatee region was 1.67 percent in March, the

most recent month measured. The foreclosure rate in Sarasota-Manatee peaked at 12.23 percent in June 2011, according to CoreLogic.

Florida's foreclosure inventory - the share of mortgaged homes in some stage of the

process - stood at 2.1 percent in March, the fourth-highest level in the U.S., CoreLogic said.

That was double the national rate of 1.1 percent, although Florida was down from 3.3 percent over the year.

Florida's serious delinquency rate - loans that are at least 90 days past due,

including foreclosures - was 4,9 percent in March. That decreased by a third over the year, but remained well ahead of the 3.1 percent U.S. rate.

"Delinquencies and foreclosure rates are now at pre-crash levels as the benefits of higher home prices, improving economic fundamentals and years of cautious

underwriting are being felt across the country," said Anand Nallathambi, president/CEO of CoreLogic.

"Longer term, as loans made since 2009 account for a larger share of outstanding debt, we anticipate that the serious delinquency rate will have further substantive declines," he said.

Nationwide, completed foreclosures have dropped by 15 percent and the foreclosure inventory is down by 23 percent.

Florida breaks another touris,m record with 29.8 million visitors in ·first quarter By Alli Knothe, Times Staff Writer

Monday, May 16, 2016 1:08pm

Florida keeps on breaking tourism records. In the first quarter of 2016, Florida hosted a record 29.8 million tourists, continuing a run ofrecord-shattering tourism numbers for the state. The previous tourism record for the first quarter was set in 2015, when the state had 28.5 million visitors. The tourism numbers were announced by Gov. Rick Scott on Monday morning at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Scott, who visited Winter and the aquarium's other residents during his stop, said the industry is growing at a consistent 4 percent rate. 1he governor also announced a record of 1. 2

million people are working in the hospitality sector, up 3.8 percent from last year.

Will robot cars drive traffic congestion off a cliff? Associated Press

Monday, May 16, 2016 7:36pm

WASHINGTON - Self-driving cars are expected to usher in a new era of mobility, safety and convenience. The problem, say transportation researchers, is that people will use them too much.

Experts foresee robot cars chauffeuring children to school, dance class and baseball practice. The disabled and elderly will have new mobility. Commuters will be able to work, sleep, eat or watch movies on the way to the office. People may stay home more because they can send their cars to do things like pick up groceries they've ordered online.

Researchers believe the number of miles driven will skyrocket. It's less certain whether that will mean a corresponding surge in traffic congestion, but it's a clear possibility.

Gary Silberg, an auto industry expert at accounting firm KPMG, compares it to the introduction of smartphones. "It will be indispensable to your life," he said. "It will be all sorts of things we can't even think of today."

Cars that can drive themselves under limited conditions are expected to be available within five to 10 years. Versions able to navigate under most conditions may take 10 to 20 years.

Vehicles traveled a record 3.1 trillion miles in the U.S. last year. Increased trips in autonomous cars by those 65 or older, as well as those ages 16 to 24, would boost miles traveled by an additional 2 trillion miles annually by 2050,

KPMG calculated. If self-driving cars without passengers start running errands, the increase could be double that.

And if people in their middle years, when driving is at its peak, also increase their travel, that yearly total could reach 8 trillion miles. "This could be massive," Silberg said.

Driverless cars are expected to make travel both safer and cheaper. With human error responsible for 90 percent of traffic accidents, they're expected to sharply reduce accidents, driving down the cost of insurance and repairs.

But the biggest cost of car travel is drivers' time, said Don MacKenzie, a University of Washington transportation researcher. That cost comes down dramatically when people can use their trav el time productively on other tasks.

"You are talking about a technology that promises to make travel safer, cheaper, more convenient. And when you do that, you'd better expect people are going to do more ofit," MacKenzie said.

There's a fork ahead in this driverless road, says a report by Lauren Isaac, manager of sustainable transportation at WSP /Parsons Brinckerhoff, that envisions either utopia or a nightmare.

In the best case, congestion is reduced because driverless cars and trucks are safer and can travel faster with reduced space between them. Highway lanes can be narrower because vehicles won't need as much margin for error. There will be fewer accidents to tie up traffic. But those advantages will be limited as long as driverless cars share roads with conventional cars, likely for decades.

But that scenario depends on a societal shift from private vehicle ownership to commercial fleets of driverless cars that can be quickly summoned with a phone app. Driverless fleets would have to become superefficient carpools, picking up and dropping off multiple passengers traveling in the same direction.

The congestion nightmare would result if a large share of people can't be persuaded to effectively share robot cars with strangers and to continue using mass transit, Isaac said.

Suburbia Gets No Respect, But It Could Become a Very Different Place

For starters, driverless cars would mean a lot less pavement

For years now, Alan Berger has been hearing that the world's future lies in its cities, that they are the destinations of a great migration, the places where everyone, particularly millennials, want to live. By contrast, according to conventional thinking, suburbia is becoming a dead zone.

The problem, he says, is that it's not true.

In fact, notes Berger, a professor of landscape architecture and urban design at MIT, it's just the reverse. While urban areas are gaining population, the growth is in the suburbs, not downtown. As for millennials, Berger points out that census data shows more are leaving cities than moving into them.

"People who are saying everyone will live in the city in the future aren't reading the research," he says.

The impact of driverless cars

For his part, Berger takes suburbia very seriously, which, he admits, makes him an outlier in his field. ' 'People are astonished why I would even want to study suburbia," he acknowledges. "Urban planners do not study s uburbia. Architects absolutely have nothing to do with suburban research."

But he's convinced that it's the communities outside center cities that will be critical to s ustaining urban areas as they evolve in the decades ahead. And so Berger, as co-director of MIT's Center for Advanced Urbanis m (CAU), recently helped organize a conference at the university titled, "The Future of Suburbia." The meeting was the culmination of a two-year research project on how suburbs could be reinvented.

Speakers covered a wide range of subjects, from the important role suburban vegetation, including lawns, can play in reducing carbon dioxide levels, to suburbia's growing racial and age diversity, to technological advances that may help transform it.

One such technology is the autonomous car, which is what Berger talked about. A lot of media attention has been paid to the prospect of fleets of driverless vehicles constantly circulating on downtown streets, but he says the invention's greatest impact will be in the suburbs, which, after all, have largely been defined by how we use cars.

"It will be in suburb-to-suburb commuting," Berger says. "That's the majority of movement in our country. As more autonomous cars come online, you're going to see more and more suburbanization, not less. People will be driving farther to their jobs."

With truly autonomous vehicles still years away, no one can say with much certainty if they will result in people spending less time in cars. But Berger does foresee one big potential benefit-much less pavement. Based on the notion that there likely will be more car-sharing and less need for multiple lanes since vehicles could continuously loop on a single track, Berger believes the amount of pavement in a suburb of the future could be cut in half. You would no longer need huge shopping center parking lots, or even driveways and garages.

Not only would fewer paved surfaces increase the amount of space that could be used for carbon-storing trees and plants, but it also would allow more water to be absorbed and reduce the risk of flooding in cities downstream.

That kind of interdependence between suburbs and downtowns is at the heart of how Berger and others at the CAU see the future. Instead of bedroom communities of cul-de-sacs and shopping malls, the suburbs they've imagined would focus on using more of their space to sustain themselves and nearby urban centers-whether it's by providing energy through solar panel micro-grids or using more of the land to grow food and store water.

Their model of a future metropolitan area of 3 million people looks very different from what we've come to know. Rather than

have neighborhoods continuously spreading outward from a downtown core, it presents a. handful of dense clusters amid what Berger describes as a "big sea of suburban development that's much more horizontal than vertical." It would, he says, function as a "kind of holistic sustainable machine."

Taking suburbia seriously

It's a bold vision, one that's geared more to planning new suburbs around the world than transforming existing ones. But as hypothetical as this model may seem, it's a first step at giving suburbia its due while redefining its role.

"The reality is that the large majority of people want to live in suburbs," says Joel Kotkin, a fellow of urban studies at Chapman University in California and the author of The Human City: Urbanism for the Rest of Us. "People make these choices for all kinds ofreasons that urban theorists don't pay attention to. They'd rather live in a detached house than in an apartment building. Or they can't afford to live in the middle of a city. Or they're worried about where their kids will go to school."

Kotkin adds, "You hear people say that the suburbs are going to become more and more dense and that they're going to be for people who aren't quite smart enough to live in the center city. But most people don't want that kind of density. That's not why they moved there."

So, like Berger, he believes it's time to start rethinking what suburbia can be and to become more strategic about how it evolves. Together, they've co-edited a book of articles and research that sharpens the focus on that challenge. Titled Infinite Suburbia, it will be published next year.

Berger does concede that there are times he feels he's pushing a rock up a hill, given the common misconception that most of the world's population is flocking into cities. He says that's largely based on a United Nations report projecting that by 2050, 66 percent of the people on Earth will live in urban areas. The term "urban areas," he points out, has been widely misinterpreted as meaning cities.

"Certainly, the world's urbanizing, but it's urbanizing in a much different way than cities," he says. "It's urbanizing horizontally."

And that's why he keeps pushing the rock.

"I'm not that interested in figuring out how to add more houses to cities and squeezing more people into smaller square footages," he says. "I'm interested in what people seem to actually want and how to make that better."
