Grow th Management.
Language proposed by DCA, Division of Community Planning to be incorporated in the State
Mitigation Strategy.
1. Review the local comprehensive plan compliance to include land use, site design, and
infrastructure policies that reduce the risk and vulnerability of communities located in hazard
prone-areas to natural and man-made disasters. Such policies may include but not limited to:
limitations on use (such as hospitals and adult living facilities) and densities; and prohibition of
public subsidies for infrastructure in hazard-prone areas. (Lead Agency: DCP)
2. Require roads in the Coastal High Hazard Area to be built above both the 100-year flood level
and the Category 1 Storm Surge level.
3. Require buildings in the Coastal High Hazard Area to be built above both the 100-year flood
level and the Category 1 Storm Surge level. Public and private structures
4. Adopt a statewide target for a maximum 16-hour hurricane clearance time, for a Category 3
Storm at peak season. Where clearance times do not meet this target, the state and local
governments should adopt a program of road and shelter improvements to reduce clearance times
to 16 hours, as much as possible. Local governments generally should not be allowed to increase
the clearance times established in their comprehensive plans, where these clearance times are
already at or exceed 16 hours.
5. Do not increase land use densities or intensities in Category 3 Hurricane Evacuation Areas,
unless hurricane clearance times for a Category 3 storm would be maintained at a maximum of
16 hours.
6. Provide hurricane shelters on-site or in the immediate vicinity, for neighborhoods or
development projects where hurricane clearance times for a Category 3 storm cannot be
maintained at 16 hours or less. Retrofit existing shelters in these areas, where necessary, in order
to meet state standards.

7. Prioritize mobile home parks for the provision of emergency shelters, and require shelters for
any new mobile home parks in Category 3 Hurricane Evacuation Areas.
8. Adopt hurricane evacuation and shelter standards on a county-wide basis, for each county in
the state; institute a county-wide or regional system for monitoring and ensuring adequate
hurricane evacuation and shelter.
9. Provide technical assistance to local communities to increase the number of the communities
participating in the community rating system, as well as improving their ratings (Lead Agency:
DEM)
10. Identify and integrate the programs for protection of environment and natural resources with
local hazard mitigation. Such programs may include but not limited to those related to the
maintenance of significant areas of natural vegetation within the 100-year floodplain and Coastal
High-Hazard Area, and acquisition or such areas for open space uses. (Lead Agencies:
DEP/DEM)
