AS THE CHAIR HAS STATED ON MARCH 20TH OF THIS YEAR, GOVERNOR DESANTIS SIGNED EXECUTIVE ORDER 20-69, WHICH SUSPENDED THE STATUTORY ANY STATUTORY REQUIREMENT THAT A

[00:05:06]

PHYSICAL QUORUM BE PRESENT IN ORDER FOR YOU ALL TO CONDUCT THIS PARTICULAR MEETING.

AND THAT REQUIREMENT WAS TO BE IN PERSON.

THE ORDER AUTHORIZES YOU ALL TO UTILIZE COMMUNICATIONS MEDIA TECHNOLOGY, WHICH WAS PREVIOUSLY DISCLOSED AND DESCRIBED AS FAR AS THE VIDEO CONFERENCING AND THE WAY FOR THE PUBLIC TO PARTICIPATE IN THE MEETING, THE CITY HAS ADOPTED SEVERAL PROCEDURES FOR UTILIZING THOSE COMMUNICATIONS AND MEDIA TECHNOLOGIES, WHICH WE ARE USING TODAY ON THIS TEAMS CALL. ALL THAT BEING SAID, THE NOTICES FOR THIS MEETING WAS PREPARED AND POSTED PURSUANT TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE GOVERNOR'S ORDERS, STAFF AND MEMBERS OF THE IT DEPARTMENT HERE TO ENSURE THAT ALL MEMBERS OF THE BOARD AND THE CITY STAFF HAVE THE ABILITY TO PARTICIPATE IN A WAY THAT IS MEANINGFUL FOR YOU ALL TO CONDUCT THE BUSINESS OF THIS BOARD. AND PART OF THE REASONS WHY WE ARE DOING THIS IS TO OBVIOUSLY PROTECT THE PUBLIC DURING THIS PANDEMIC AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ORDERS FROM THE CITY AND BROWARD COUNTY AND TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH CDC RECOMMENDATIONS OF AVOIDING GATHERINGS OF MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE.

WHICH IS WHY WE'RE DOING THIS.

AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME THE THE COURT'S CLERK WILL PROVIDE ANY COMMENTS OR ALLOW ANYONE WHO HAS PROVIDED ANY COMMENTS TO SPEAK THOSE COMMENTS OR READ THOSE COMMENTS INTO THE RECORD.

ALL VOTES AS YOU KNOW NOW, WILL BE TAKEN BY ROLL CALL VOTE SO THAT THEIR VOTE WILL BE CAST PUBLICLY AND CLEARLY FOR THE RECORD, AT ANY POINT DURING THIS MEETING, IF ANY OF THE MEDIA TECHNOLOGY FAILS, WE WILL ADJOURN THE MEETING OR POSTPONE THE MEETING FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME UNTIL THAT TECHNOLOGY CAN BE REINSTATED SO THAT WE CAN FULLY COMPLY WITH THE NOTICE REQUIREMENTS OF THIS PARTICULAR MEETING.

AS FAR AS THE QUASI JUDICIAL PROCEDURES, WE'RE GOING TO PROCEED AS IF WE ARE THERE IN PERSON AT THE CONCLUSION OR PRIOR TO ANY EVIDENCE OR TESTIMONY BEING GIVEN.

I WILL SWEAR IN ALL WITNESSES BEFORE SPEAKING.

I WILL ASK ANY PERSON TO STATE THEIR NAME AND WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE BEEN ADMINISTERED THE OATH. ANY SPEAKER SPEAKING TODAY MAY BE CROSS-EXAMINED BY THE CITY OR THE OTHER PARTY PRESENTING TODAY. I DON'T BELIEVE COLLETTE AND YOU CAN CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG.

WE DON'T HAVE ANY ENHANCED PARTIES HERE TODAY THAT HAVE SIGNED UP FOR PARTY STATUS.

SO I DON'T BELIEVE WE WILL BE GOING THROUGH THAT PROCESS WHERE THEY HAVE ALSO THE ABILITY TO PRESENT IT.

CORRECT. WE HAVE NONE.

OK, THANK YOU. THE MATERIAL IN THE AGENDA PACKET WILL BE CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE RECORD HERE THE DAY THE CITY WILL MAKE THE FIRST PRESENTATION AND THEN THE APPLICANT WILL MAKE A PRESENTATION FOLLOWED BY QUESTIONS FROM EITHER STAFF AND OR THE BOARD.

THE BOARD WILL OPEN THE PUBLIC HEARING, AT WHICH TIME THE BOARD MAY SET REASONABLE TIME FOR THE SPEAKERS TO FROM THE PUBLIC TO SPEAK ON THE ITEM.

THEN THE BOARD WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING AND THE MATTER WILL BE DECIDED AND THE VOTE WILL BE CAST. THAT CONCLUDES MY REMARKS THIS MORNING.

COLLETTE I WILL TURN IT BACK OVER TO THE CHAIR FOR FURTHER PROCEEDINGS UNDER THE AGENDA.

THANK YOU. SECRETARY COLLETTE, DO WE HAVE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS AT THIS TIME? WE HAVE NONE. OK, SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND WE'LL INTRODUCE THE NEW BUSINESS, THE ITEM ON THE

[F. New Business 2. Bethlehem Academy - Special Exception ]

AGENDA TODAY IS, I BELIEVE MS. AUDREY NELSON IS REPRESENTING BETHLEHEM ACADEMY.

BETHLEHEM ACADEMY IS REQUESTING APPROVAL OF A SPECIAL EXCEPTION ALLOW FOR CONTINUED USE AND EXPANSION OF A PRIVATE SCHOOL FROM GRADES K THROUGH EIGHT STUDENTS IN A MIXED USE GENERAL ZONING DISTRICT.

THEY ARE LOCATED AT 6827 WEST COMMERCIAL BOULEVARD, TAMARAC, FLORIDA, 33319.

ATTORNEY QUENTIN, WOULD LIKE TO SWEAR IN THE APPLICANT.

[00:10:02]

YES, MA'AM, IF THE APPLICANT WOULD PLEASE RAISE YOUR RIGHT HAND AT YOUR POINT OF DESTINATION AND REPEAT AND SWEAR OR AFFIRM THAT YOU WILL TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH DURING YOUR TESTIMONY.

AND WHEN YOU COME ON TO PROVIDE YOUR PRESENTATION, PLEASE STATE YOUR FULL NAME AND WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE BEEN ADMINISTERED THE OATH, I BELIEVE, FOR THE STAFF MS. JOHNSON WILL BE DOING THE PRESENTATION TODAY.

AND IF ANY OTHER STAFF MEMBER WISHES TO OR MAY SPEAK, PLEASE ALSO BE SWORN.

DO YOU SWEAR THAT THE TESTIMONY YOU WILL GIVE WILL BE THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT. I DO.

MS. JOHNSON. THANK YOU.

GOOD MORNING. FOR THE RECORD, I AM ANN JOHNSON, SENIOR PLANNER WITH THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT MARKETPLACE AT TAMARAC, LLC IS REQUESTING A SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPROVAL TO ALLOW FOR THE EXPANSION OF AN EXISTING PRIVATE K THROUGH EIGHT SCHOOL IN THE MIXED USE GENERAL ZONING DISTRICT. THE PROPERTY IS APPROXIMATELY 6.2 ACRES IN SIZE.

IT HAS A FUTURE LAND USE DESIGNATION OF COMMERCIAL.

THE EXPANSION WILL TAKE PLACE IN THAT AREA YOU SEE HIGHLIGHTED IN THE RED ON YOUR SCREEN IN SUITE 6827 WITHIN THE MARKETPLACE AT TAMARAC SHOPPING PLAZA.

SO AGAIN, THE PURPOSE OF THIS REQUEST IS SIMPLY TO ALLOW THE EXISTING PRIVATE SCHOOL TO EXPAND THEIR CURRENT FOOTPRINT WITHIN THE BUILDING, WHICH IS EIGHT THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE SQUARE FEET, BY APPROXIMATELY THREE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET TO ELEVEN THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED AND FORTY ONE SQUARE FEET.

AND THIS IS TO ADHERE TO THE SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES RESULTING FROM THE ONGOING COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

REGARDING THE OCCUPANTS HISTORY OF THIS PARTICULAR FACILITY, BETHLEHEM ACADEMY HAS BEEN OPERATING AT ITS EXISTING LOCATION IN THE CITY OF TAMARAC FOR OVER EIGHT YEARS.

THE SCHOOL WAS GRANTED A SPECIAL ACCESS SPECIAL EXCEPTION INITIALLY IN JANUARY OF 2012, AND THE SCHOOL CONTINUE TO OPERATE SUCCESSFULLY OVER THE YEARS AND RECEIVED AN ADDITIONAL APPROVAL OF A SECOND SPECIAL EXCEPTION IN MAY OF 2014, SO THE APPROVALS HAVE ALLOWED THE SCHOOL TO CONTINUE OPERATIONS IN THEIR CURRENT LOCATION, THEREBY ALSO STUDENT AGAIN, THIS EXPANSION WILL ALLOW THEM TO COMPLY WITH SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES.

THERE IS NO ANTICIPATED INCREASE IN ENROLLMENT, SO THEIR MAXIMUM ALLOWED ENROLLMENT RIGHT NOW IS TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY STUDENTS.

AND PER THE APPLICANT'S JUSTIFICATION LETTER THERE ARE NO ANTICIPATED PLANS TO INCREASE ENROLLMENT AS AN ADDITIONAL THAT. TO UTILIZE THEIR EXISTING OPERATING HOURS, SO TYPICAL DROP OFF AT 7:30 A.M.

TO 8 A.M.

THE REGULAR SCHOOL DAY IS FROM 8:00 A.M.

TO 4:00 P.M.

AND THEN THEIR AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM WILL CONTINUE FROM 4:00 P.M.

TO 6:00 PM.

SO THIS IS A LITTLE OVERVIEW OF THE EXISTING SITE, BETHLEHEM ACADEMY, AGAIN, HAS BEEN EXISTING IN THIS AREA FOR OVER EIGHT YEARS, AS SHOWN ON THE SCREEN BEFORE YOU IS THERE TYPICAL TRAFFIC CIRCULATION PLAN.

YOU'LL SEE THE PULING TO THE REAR OF THE BUILDING FOR THE PARENTS.

THE STUDENTS WILL ARRIVE.

THE MAJORITY OF THE STUDENTS ARRIVE BY CAR.

AS SUCH, THERE WILL BE NO BUS TRANSPORTATION.

IN ADDITION TO THAT, THE SCHOOL IS WHAT WE CONSIDER IN THE CODE, THE ONLY NON BUSINESS USE IN THIS PARTICULAR RETAIL PLAZA.

AND THE REASON WHY THAT HAS SOME SIGNIFICANCE IS DUE TO THE PROVISIONS OF THE CITY'S CODE NO MORE THAN TWO NON BUSINESS USES MAY OCCUPY A RETAIL PLAZA.

AND SO THE APPLICATION HAS ALSO COMPLIED WITH THAT PROVISION OF THE CODE AS WELL.

BUT IN ADDITION TO NON-BUSINESS USES MAY NOT OCCUPY MORE THAN 20 PERCENT OF ANY RETAIL PLAZA. AND EVEN WITH THE ADDITIONAL SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THIS PARTICULAR FACILITY WILL NOT EXCEED 17 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THAT BUILDING AREA.

[00:15:01]

SO BOARD, AS YOU KNOW, THE PURPOSE OF A SPECIAL EXCEPTION IS TO PROVIDE FOR THE INDIVIDUAL TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AND THEIR POTENTIAL ADVERSE IMPACTS ON SURROUNDING AREAS WHICH REQUIRE CONSIDERATION OF THEIR LOCATION, DESIGN AND METHODS OF OPERATION, AS WELL AS THE IMPOSITION OF CONDITIONS TO MITIGATE CONCERNS BEFORE THEY CAN BE DEEMED APPROPRIATE IN THE ZONEING DISTRICT AND COMPATIBLE WITH THEIR SURROUNDINGS.

SO SHOWN ON THE SCREEN BEFORE YOU ARE THE STANDARDS OF APPROVAL FOR THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPLICATION, AS INDICATED IN THE STAFF MEMORANDUM, THE APPLICANT HAS SUFFICIENTLY PROVIDED RESPONSES TO EACH ONE OF THESE STANDARDS AS THEY PERTAIN TO THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION APPROVAL IN THE CITY'S CODE.

AS SUCH, STAFF RECOMMENDS THAT THE PLANNING BOARD APPROVE THE APPLICANTS REQUEST FOR A SPECIAL EXCEPTION WITH THE FOLLOWING, I WILL READ THEM INTO THE RECORD.

NUMBER ONE THAT THE APPROVAL OF THE SPECIAL EXCEPTION TO ALLOW FOR THE EXPRESSION EXCUSE ME, THE EXPANSION OF BETHLEHEM ACADEMY SHALL BE LIMITED TO THE EXISTING SQUARE OF THE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET IN THE MARKETPLACE AT TAMARAC PLAZA.

NUMBER TWO, THAT THE APPLICANT SHALL CONTINUE TO COMPLY WITH LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL GUIDELINES REGARDING THE SAFE OPERATION OF SCHOOLS, INCLUDING ANY CLOSURES THAT MAY BE MANDATED BY LOCAL, STATE OR FEDERAL ORDERS.

LASTLY, NUMBER THREE UPON THE DISCONTINUANCE OF THE SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES, THE APPLICANT AGREES TO PERFORMING AND SUBMITTING AN ADDITIONAL TRAFFIC STUDY TO THE CITY FOR APPROVAL BEFORE UTILIZING THE SPACE IN THE BAY FOR INCREASED STUDENT ENROLLMENT.

THAT CONCLUDES STAFF PRESENTATION.

I'D BE HAPPY TO TAKE ANY QUESTIONS AT THIS TIME.

MADAM CHAIR. YES.

THIS IS CESAR SASTRE, I DO HAVE A QUESTION, IF I CAN.

SURE. IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND GOING BACK TO THE OVERHEAD MAP, THE AERIAL MAP OF THE LOCATION. SURE NOT A PROBLEM.

THAT'S JUST THAT'S IT.

I WAS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT THE TRAFFIC PLAN.

I SEE THE NUMBERS AND THEY JUST KIND OF DON'T ADD UP SOMEHOW.

CAN YOU EXPAND ON THAT A LITTLE? SURE. THE EXISTING INGRESS TO THE SITE IS ACTUALLY THE MAJORITY OF THE PARENTS COME DOWN 57TH STREET.

ARE YOU ABLE TO SEE MY MOUSE, MR. SASTRE, ON THE SCREEN? I'M TRYING TO TRACE THE ROUTE.

IF NOT, I CAN CONTINUE TO DESCRIBE.

I CAN'T SEE IT, BUT YOU CAN DESCRIBE IT.

OK. OK, SO THEY WILL CONTINUE TO TRAVEL DOWN 57TH STREET AND MAKE A LEFT TURN INTO WHERE YOU SEE THAT NUMBER TWO.

OK, AND NUMBER TWO WOULD BE THE QUEUING LINE.

THAT'S THAT YELLOW BAR WHERE THE STUDENTS ARE DROPPED OFF AND THE PARENTS WOULD PROCEED AND EXIT WHERE YOU SEE THE NUMBER ONE, WHICH IS THE EGRESS WHERE THEY'RE EXITING THE SITE. THE OTHER NUMBERS JUST REPRESENT OTHER POSSIBLE INGRESS AND EGRESS TO THIS PARTICULAR PLAZA JUST TO SHOW THAT THE OPERATION OF THE SCHOOL DOES NOT OVERALL IMPACT THE OPERATION OF THE PLAZA.

THERE ARE STILL THREE OTHER INGRESS AND EGRESS TO THIS PARTICULAR PLAZA THAT ALLOW PATRONS WHO ARE PATRONIZING OTHER BUSINESSES TO VISIT THE SITE UNIMPEDED.

OK, I SEE THAT.

NOW, I GUESS MY FURTHER QUESTION FOLLOW UP TO THAT IS SO, THEY COME IN FROM THREE, FOUR OR FIVE OR TWO, I GUESS THEY COULD GO IN EITHER DIRECTION TO GET TO THE EGRESS AT ONE.

YOU SEE WHAT I'M SAYING? YES, THAT THAT IS CORRECT.

OK, OK.

AND YOU'RE OK WITH THAT? YES.

THAT'S HOW THE PLAN WAS ORIGINALLY APPROVED.

A SCHOOL HAS BEEN OPERATING IN THIS MANNER.

THEY DIDN'T CHANGE ANYTHING.

THEY'VE BEEN OPERATING IN THIS MANNER FOR THE PAST EIGHT YEARS.

OK, OK.

THANK YOU. I APPRECIATE THAT.

NOT A PROBLEM. ABSOLUTELY.

THAT'S IT MADAM CHAIR.

THANK YOU. DO WE HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS? I ACTUALLY HAVE A QUESTION, MS. JOHNSON. YES MADAM CHAIR.

WITH THE INCREASE OF SQUARE FOOTAGE, HOW QUICKLY DO WE ANTICIPATE THE INCREASE OF STUDENT BODY? AND DO WE HAVE AN IDEA OF HOW MANY MORE STUDENTS OR HOW MANY MORE CARS OR PEOPLE ARE ANTICIPATING TRAVELING?

[00:20:02]

AT THIS TIME, THERE ARE NO ANTICIPATED INCREASE, THE APPLICANT ALSO STATED IN THEIR JUSTIFICATION LETTER BECAUSE THE STAFF WANTED TO BE CLEAR ON WHAT THE INTENTIONS OF THE EXPANSION WERE GOING TO BE.

THE EXPANSION IS SIMPLY TO BE ABLE TO SPACE THE STUDENTS OUT MORE OR SO AS FAR AS ANY TRAFFIC CONCERNS, THEY'LL BE THE SAME LEVEL OF STUDENT ENROLLMENT, THEREFORE THE SAME LEVEL OF TRAFFIC.

AND IF THE APPLICANT IN THE FUTURE IS GOING TO USE THE SPACE TO INCREASE ENROLLMENT, THEY WILL HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE CITY AND SUBMIT A TRAFFIC PLAN TO ACCOMMODATE SO THAT WE CAN EXAMINE, YOU KNOW, THE IMPACTS OF THE ADDITIONAL ENROLLMENT INCREASE IN ENROLLMENT.

THANK YOU. YOU'RE WELCOME.

AGAIN, OK, AT THIS TIME, WE'D LIKE TO OPEN THE FLOOR TO THE APPLICANT.

AT THIS TIME, I DO NOT.

DOES AUDREY HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY.

NO. OK, THANK YOU.

AND I JUST WANT TO CHECK ONE MORE TIME MS. COLLETTE, DO WE HAVE ANY ANYONE FROM THE PUBLIC THAT LIKE TO SPEAK AT THIS TIME? WE HAVE NONE. OK, WONDERFUL.

I'D LIKE TO ASK FOR A MOTION TO APPROVE.

HOLD ON. HOLD ON. OH, I'M SORRY.

DID I JUMP THE GUN? NO, IT'S OK.

YOU YOU ESSENTIALLY OPENED THE PUBLIC HEARING WHEN YOU ASK COLLETTE TO.

IF THERE WAS ANYBODY FROM THE PUBLIC WISHING TO SPEAK AND SHE SAID NONE, AND THEN YOU ESSENTIALLY CLOSED IT WITH YOUR QUESTION, I JUST WANT YOU TO VERBALIZE THAT.

BUT YOU DID WHAT YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO DO, JUST VERBALIZE IT FOR THE RECORD.

MADAM CHAIR YOU'RE MUTED.

SORRY ABOUT THAT. THANK YOU FOR CORRECTING ME NO, NO, YOU DID FINE IT'S JUST HARD TO NORMALLY WHEN WE'RE IN PERSON, YOU WOULD BE FINE.

IT'S JUST WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY.

WE HAVE TO BE MORE VERBAL.

THAT'S ALL.

I UNDERSTAND. SO AT THIS TIME, I'D LIKE TO CLOSE THE FLOOR TO THE PUBLIC, SINCE WE HAVE NO ONE WHO WOULD LIKE TO SPEAK.

AND I'D LIKE TO MOVE FORWARD ASKING FOR A MOTION TO APPROVE.

MADAM CHAIR, I'LL GO AHEAD AND MAKE THE MOTION TO APPROVE.

THANK YOU. WHO IS THIS? CESAR SASTRE.

OK, THANK YOU. DO WE HAVE A SECOND? I'LL SECOND THIS IS SALAH ELROWENY.
