        • o

          Comp Plan is requirement of Fl Statutes Chapter 163.3177 and 163.3178 and Fl Admin Codes, specifically Rules 9J-5 and 9J-11. Planning process is designed to be continuous. As part of the process, local governments are required to evaluate and review the Comprehensive Plan every seven years and provide a report to the Department of Community Affairs (DCA).

        • o

          Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) is the generally accepted process for updating the Comprehensive Plan. The EAR involves reviewing the Comprehensive Plan policies and considering how they relate to the population and development changes that have occurred over the previous seven years. The EAR process allows for the review of the local government’s past actions; the identification of the Comprehensive Plan’s good and bad points and which plan objectives have been achieved and which should be changed; the identification of major issues of the community; and the implementation of effective intergovernmental coordination.

        • o

          State statute requires that an EAR be prepared every seven years. Charlotte County last prepared an EAR in 2003, and its next EAR will be due in December of 2010.

Because the preparation of Smart Charlotte 2050 effectively paralleled the requirements for the preparation of the state mandated EAR of the 1997 Comprehensive Plan, the preparation of the 2010 Charlotte County EAR has been streamlined. Many of the major issues that would be presented in the EAR have been presented, and policy approaches to them have been established, in Smart Charlotte 2050. A scoping meeting was held on December 16, 2009 to present the major issues to the County’s State, regional and local agency partners. In the discussion that followed, some additional issues

were established that warranted further analysis and possible policy approaches. In total, issues were included in a letter of understanding to DCA, establishing the focus of the EAR.
