What is a Development of Regional Impact?
A Development of Regional Impact (DRI) is a large development project, which has been reviewed at a state, regional and local level to evaluate the development scope and possible impacts to the natural and built environment.
The DRI program was first established in 1973 and has been repeatedly updated over the years. At present, projects, which in the past would have classified as DRIs, are now exempt if they are located in high population, urban areas, such as the City of Orlando.
What is a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) Development Order (DO)?
The DRI Development Order (DO) lays out the development program and required improvements to reduce any impacts; i.e. – the number of project generated vehicular trips may require building roads and/or installing traffic signals. The Development Order is usually intended for a definite period of time (i.e. – 20 years) to address the specific development program.
What is the Metrowest Development of Regional Impact (DRI)?
First approved 34 years ago, the +/-1,785 ac. Metrowest Development of Regional Impact (DRI) has evolved from a large golf course community to a quality, mixed-use development.
What is Metrowest DRI Development Order (DO) rescission request and what are the rescission requirements?
The Development-of-Regional-Impact Development Order should be rescinded by the local government when the development is complete and all required improvements are in place. There are no development related improvements that are due. The City has determined that the request to rescind is appropriate.
How does the DRI DO Rescission impact my property rights?
The proposed DO rescission will remove an unnecessary and outdated regulatory requirement. Its removal will not adversely impact property owner rights within the Metrowest Development of Regional Impact (DRI). Each property’s future land use designation and zoning classification and related land development approvals will regulate allowable uses as well as development densities and intensities and other related requirements, consistent with the City’s Land Development Code.
How is the Metrowest Master Association impacted?
The Association will also not be adversely impacted by the rescission. Metrowest is managed by the MetroWest Master Association (MWMA), a corporation formed by Debra, Inc., which has the overall responsibility and right in maintaining the standards of all common areas located within the community.
