Waterset Development of Regional Impact Letter

The development order for the Hillsborough County Waterset Development of Regional Impact (#266 DRI), located south of Big Bend Road, east of US 41, and west of Interstate 75, north of 19th Avenue requires that the developer dedicate up to 40 acres for two future school sites.  The development order states that the developer will construct and convey the road to access one future school by January 1, 2017, “unless otherwise agreed to by the Developer and the Hillsborough County School District.”  Since the construction of the planned school within the Waterset community has been deferred to possibly the 5th year of the District Five Year Work Plan (2020-21), staff agrees that the attached letter (dated December 15, 2016) adequately adjusts the construction and conveyance of the roadway to the first future school site to no later than January 1, 2019.  In addition, the letter adequately states that the commencement of the road construction to the second future school site (no date or location determined) will take place no later than six months after the request is made by the School District, and the conveyance shall occur no later than nine months after said construction commencement.  This fulfills the intent and commitment outlined in the Waterset DRI development order.
