We are still agreeable to receiving the application in one of these formats. We are, however, forwarding to you Draft 9 of the proposed state form.

Statement of Purpose The Development of Regional Impact (ORI) Application for Development Approval (ADA) is intended to provide information to local governments to assist them in making decisions concerning developments having a greater than local ia1pact. Just as the DRI process is not intended to supplant local, atate,-or federal permitting procedures, neither is the ADA meant to be a subati tuta for substantive or technical reports required pursuant to such permits. Rather, the ADA provides a comprehensive look at a proposed development and aervea as the basic data source for the preparation of the regional planning agency's report and recoanendat+ons to the local government on _the regional impact of the proposed development. The regional planning agency, in fulfilling their responsibilities under Chapter 380, Florida Statutes, will use this base information providedby a developer to consider whether, and the extent to whicha . (a) The development will have a favorable or unfavorable impact . on the environment and natural resources of the region, (b) The development will have~ favorable or. unfavorable impact on the economy of the region, (c) The development will efficiently use or unduly burden water, sewer, solid waste disposal, or other necessary public facilities; (d) The development will efficiently use or unduly burden public transportation facilities, (e) The development will favorably or adversely affect the Abilityof people to find adequate housing reasonably accessible totheir places of employment, and . (f) The deve lopment complies or does not comply with such other criteria for determining regional impact as the regional planning agency shall deem .appropriate. The prepJration of the Application for Development . Approval is the initial atep in the development of regional impact process w~ich establishes the framewo rk for a cooperative planning effort between the develo~r, the local governnent, regional agency, ana federal and state agencies. 2 . . . -.. -. .
A~-If a Development of Regional Impact is proposed in a regulated area (the local government has adopted either Z?ning or subdivision.regulations), applicants proposing residential Developments of Regional impact must complete Part I and Part II of.this Application.
