(2) The Street Frontage Plan establishes a hierarchy of street types in existing and future locations, which shall be provided in all future development. The five (5) street types, in descending order of pedestrian activity, are lettered ‘A’ through ‘E.’ An ‘A’ street is the most important street to accommodate pedestrian activity.
(3) The Greenway and Bicycle Plan establishes the location of bicycle and greenway facilities within the PLMUC.
(B) Sub-District Plan

Up to twenty (20) percent of the area required for private open space may consist of submerged land areas.

Such pedestrian promenade or boardwalk facility shall: be a minimum of ten (10) feet in width for at least seventy-five (75) percent of the lakefront; be designed to permit connections to existing or future walkways located on adjoining waterfront lots; be accessible from the street by exterior walkways or through building interiors, courtyards, or breezeways; and permit general public access seven (7) days a week from at least seven (7) AM to ten (10) PM.<<

The section of this ordinance may be renumbered or relettered to accomplish such intention, and the word “ordinance” may be changed to “section,” “article” or other appropriate word.

Subject: Proposed Zoning Ordinance Amending the Palmer Lake Metropolitan Urban Center Zoning District
This substitute ordinance differs from the original in that it corrects a scrivener’s error on the Sub-Districts Plan map that inadvertently re-designated certain parcels within the Core sub-district. This substitute corrects the error and the remainder of the ordinance is unchanged.
It is recommended that the Board adopt the attached ordinance amending the Palmer Lake Metropolitan Urban Center zoning district.
The proposed ordinance impacts the unincorporated area around Palmer Lake in Commission Districts 5 and 6.
Fiscal Impact/Funding Source
The proposed ordinance creates no fiscal impact on Miami-Dade County.
Eric Silva, Assistant Director of Development Services in the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources, will be responsible for implementation of the proposed ordinance.
The proposed ordinance amends the Palmer Lake Metropolitan Urban Center (PLMUC) zoning district to modify development limitations on certain properties adjoining Palmer Lake. On October 2, 2013 the Board of County Commissioners adopted amendments to the Comprehensive Development Master Plan (CDMP) based on recommendations made in the 2010 Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR); among these amendments was a change to a map in the Port of Miami River Sub-Element designating certain areas in the vicinity of the Miami River for water-dependent uses. This map was amended to remove this designation for properties adjoining Palmer Lake due mainly to the inability of marine vessels to access the lake. The amendments in this ordinance will make the PLMUC district standards consistent with the above-mentioned changes to the CDMP and permit development on properties adjoining Palmer Lake as would otherwise be allowed elsewhere in the PLMUC
