Venice: Daniels and Holic are concern that the Land Development Regulations are going to slow and will not be up for a vote before the election
By Francesco Abbruzzino, The Scoop News
From former Venice Council Member Fred Fraize That could be a good thing. Pat Neal is backing Bob along with the Boone’s. Oh, I didn’t list all the developers, hope there not offended.
LDR’s are essential in giving the city direction when it comes to development within the city limits. As you can see form the video, there will be several public workshops, which will push the completion of a new LDR (Land Development Regulations) into late Q4 of this year or possibly Q1 in 2020.
That is why this election is so important. Daniels as the Mayor will continue to push for developer friendly LDR’s, just like he did with the comprehensive plan. Jeff Boone (attorney to the developers, such as Neal) essentially had a temp office in the City of Venice Planning Department, as he worked closely with Jeff Shrum to develop a Comprehensive Plan. Do not leave any doubt in your head when I state that Jeff Boone will provide more input than the average Venice resident into the LDR. As you will notice Daniels and Holic wanted to avoid additional meetings. Daniels is concerned that it is taking to long, meaning they will not be done before the election and a sustainable growth Mayor and Council Members may have input, which does not align with his pro-growth push.
