FAX (305) 357-6694 May 15, 1992 Mr. Harry Mertz City Manager City of Parkland 6500 parkside Drive Parkland, FL 33067 Dear Mr. Mertz: RE: Approval of a Resolution Ratifying the 1992 Reapportionment Plan of the Broward County Metropolitan Planning Organization The Broward County Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is seeking a resolution from your City in support of a required new plan for City/County/TCRA representation on the MPO. The new plan is in response to the current Interlocal Agreement and a letter from Governor Lawton Chiles to the MPO, requesting that it recommend a reapportionment plan by July 1, 1992. A copy of that letter is, enclosed. The MPO Reapportionment SuJ::K:onmittee, consisting of the MPO Chairperson and two elected city officials, developed the recommended plan based on the following principles: - if the MPO membership is to be increased, it should be fram 15 to 17 to maintain an uneven number. - municipal membership should be increased from 10 to 12 members in accordance with Broward growth patterns. - we should work within the municipal district framework established in the previous (Le. 1986) MPO Reapportionment. In this framework, the largest districts, Le. Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, already have two Municipal Voting Members each. For this 1992 Reapportionment, it is proposed to add one new municipal member each in the next two largest districts, i.e. Sunrise and Coral Springs. Thus it is proposed to add the cities of Lauderhill and Tamarac as new voting members on the MPO. - In accordance with a new statutory requirement, the Tri-County Commuter Rail Authority (TCRA) should be represented by a County Commissioner who serves on that Authority.

And roc......... GeraIc:I F. Thompson - In order to maintain the desired expansion limdt of 17 members, the Board of County Commissioners should appoint four other Commissioners to the MPO. As you may be aware, the Broward County MPO will have increased opportunities to plan and program for larger amounts of flexible federal transportation aids as long as they maintain a properly organized and certified planning process (in accordance with state and federal law and applicable regulations.) In order to avoid any interruption in the flow of the new federal funds, the MPO is requesting your cooperation in placing the enclosed resolution on the agenda of your very next meeting. Please transmit the approved resolution or, if the resolutions fails, written notice of that result. Correspondence should be addressed to this office. If you have any questions concerning the resolution, the reapportionment plan, or the process of reapportionment, please feel free to contact me at 357-6641 or the MPO's Counsel, Sharon Cruz, at 357-7600. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, -&..._~.JJ~ _ ~.

FLORIDA 32399-0001 LAWION 0iILES COVERNOR April 10, 1992 Honorable Sylvia poitier, Chairperson Fort Lauderdale Urbanized Area Metropolitan Planninq Orqanization Broward County Governmental Center 115 South Andrews Avenue Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301 Sylvia Dear Sylvia: section 339.175(3) (a), Florida. Statutes, requires the Governor to review the composition of the Metropolitan PlanninqOrqanization (MPO) membership at least every five years and reapportion them as necessary to comply with law. In addition, section 134 of Title 23 united States Code requires the desiqnation of MPOs in urbanized areas, as defined by the united States Bureau of the Census. To implement this requirement, I am requestinq that each existinq and emerginq MPO submit a membership reapportionment plan by July 1, 1992. These reapportionment plans must be consistent with the requirements of section 339.175, Florida statutes, the Procedure for Membership Reapportionment of MPOs dated May 26, 1989, and the Federal Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991. Enclosed are relevant excerpts from these laws and this procedure to assist your efforts. Recently, the Florida Department of Transportation district offices beqan workinq directly with the MPOs to develop transportation planninq boundary maps, which include the 1990 urbanized areas as designated by the united States Bureau of the Census. The transportation planninq boundary maps are inteqral to the development of a reapportionment plan since they establish a base area from which to determine MPO membership. Following review and approval of your membership reapportionment plan, the MPO should execute all required aqreements as specified by federal and State law. A detailed listing of the necessary aqreements is enclo, sed.,< : . f r:. r) ., ,(" I r ~ '\' ~ r ~.~. ....... l... ~ \',"" \ .,. ',. '; " " l~,. · c.... ".' rt=:CEt\!~.r' G01':D1.

This review may result in statutory recommendations to the 1993 Florida Leqislature that could affect MPO membership. Should any such recommendations be enacted, it may be necessary to revisit the membership apportionment of each MPO. Please submit your reapportionment plan to Michael Wriqht at the Department of Transportation, 605 Suwannee Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399, Mail Station 28, for coordination of the review and approval process. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Wriqht at (904)488-8006 or Barry Brooks in the Governor's Office at (904)488-8686. With kind reqards, I am LAWTON CHILES LC/wq/ddv Enclosures ~
