Evaluation and Appraisal Report

Pursuant to Section 163.3191, Florida Statutes, every seven years a local government must undertake an evaluation of its comprehensive plan to determine deficiencies and necessary updates. The result of this process is the Evaluation and Appraisal Report (EAR) which addresses the various elements in the plan (i.e., Future Land Use, Conservation, Transportation, etc.) and how well they have performed during the preceding planning period. Following completion of the EAR, the local government will submit EAR-related amendments to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) reflecting the necessary changes. As with other large scale amendments, DEP, as a commenting agency to DEO, formally reviews EAR amendments to determine their consistency with the Department's statutes, rules, objectives and strategies.
