Thursday, October 1, 1981 <br />The Board of County Commissioners of Indian River <br />County, Florida, met in Special Session at the Sebastian <br />Community Center, Central Avenue, Sebastian, Florida, on <br />Thursday, October 1, 1981, at 7:00 o'clock P.M. Present <br />were Patrick B. Lyons, Chairman; William C. Wodtke, Jr., <br />Vice Chairman; Dick Bird; Alfred Grover Fletcher; and Don C. <br />Scurlock, Jr. Also present were Neil A. Nelson, County <br />Administrator; R. Stephen Houlihan, Assistant Attorney to <br />the Board of County Commissioners; and Virginia Hargreaves, <br />Deputy Clerk. <br />The Chairman called the meeting to order and announced <br />that it was for the purpose of considering the affect of the <br />proposed Comprehensive Land Use Plan on specific properties <br />in the general area between State Road 510 and the north <br />county line. He then made a brief introductory statement, <br />emphasizing the difference between a land use plan and <br />zoning. Chairman Lyons explained that the various <br />designations, such as LD -1, etc., simply indicate the <br />maximum density which could occur in that area and do not <br />mean that everything in that particular designation will <br />necessarily be zoned to that level. If the density of the <br />existing zoning exceeds the maximum density allowed, then <br />that piece of property must be rezoned so that it does not <br />exceed the maximum indicated. <br />The Chairman next explained that it is not the <br />Commission's intent to create non -conforming uses, but <br />rather to recognize existing legal uses so that if the <br />structure is either totally or partially destroyed, it can <br />be rebuilt. Wording to this effect will be made a specific <br />part of the Plan, and there also may be a reasonable <br />allowance for expansion. <br />1 <br />BOOK 47 PAGE 670 <br />
