Incompatible Use Requests:

Cross Seminole Trail Exchange Minimal Reduction in Acreage

In February 2014, ARC determined that 0.10 acre and 0.44 acre parcels of state-owned conservation lands currently managed by Seminole County as part of the Cross Seminole Trail are no longer need for conservation purposes, pursuant to section 253.034(6), F.S. (2014), in exchange for 1.52 acres of privately owned land to facilitate trail completion in this area.

Since ARC recommended approval of this proposed exchange and prior to going before the Board of Trustees for approval, a survey was completed. It was determined based on the survey that due to the existence of a privacy wall constructed by the private land owner, the width of the approximately 1.52 acre parcel to be acquired needed to be reduced by 3 feet to the south. This reduction of 3 feet will reduce the size of the proposed acquisition parcel by approximately 0.16 acre to approximately 1.36 acres (see link to revised survey/sketch).

Cross Seminole Trail Exchange Reduction

The Division of State Lands will accept this 0.16 reduction in acreage unless three ARC members ask we place the revised request on a future Council meeting agenda. The deadline for ARC to make this request is  August 22, 2016.
