Seven50: Se Florida ProSPerity PlanPrefacePurpose:This draft report concerns the contract entitled, “Southeast Florida’s Regional Vision and Blueprint for EconomicProsperity (Sustainable Communities Initiative) – Master Contract” approved by the South Florida RegionalPlanning Council on November 7, 2011.Introduction:Four scenarios for the year 2060 were created:key indicators.

Seven50: Se Florida ProSPerity PlanTrend“Business as Usual”Scenarios: A Narrative of Trend “Business as Usual” and Plan 1 “Exurban Expansion”The Southeast Florida Region continues on its current trend, with no major changes in regional growth, transportation, environmental, social,and economic policies.New development is pushed to the edges of metropolitan areas, causing widespread loss of farmland and environmentally sensitive lands,especially in the northern counties. Development is mostly automobile-dependent, resulting in further strains on the suburban road networksroadways and a growing population. Development pressures at the edges create renewed pressure for urban development boundaries in Miami-Meanwhile, demographic changes demand more pedestrian-friendly urban environments, yet constrained supplies of walkable developmentcause prices in these places to continue to rise, putting it out of reach of large portions of the population. Energy and transportation costsalso continue to rise putting a strain on household budgets, especially throughout the automobile-dependent suburban stretches of thealong transit corridors can barely keep up with demand from a growing population. Because of the limited amount of transit-served areas,development at these locations often takes the form of high-rise condominium buildings without many middle densities to make the transitionSea-level rise gradually affects more and more of the region, causing widespread flooding in low-lying areas. Although many areas are unablein storm-water infrastructure to protect key areas from at least some of the effects of sea-level rise. Current everglades restoration projects

Walkable/bikeable improvements include items such as greater sidewalk/bike routeconnectivity, more continuous street tree shade canopy, and increasedcrossing ease at intersections. Where needed, improvements should includeadjustments to land development regulations to permit and promotepedestrian-friendly development including: buildings forming a well-shapedpublic street space, doors and windows facing the street, minimizationof blank walls and back-of house service areas facing the street, and lessobtrusive parking generally placed to the rear and sides of buildings.

With enough investmentand retrofit of streets into comfortable public spaces, all these areas have the potential to mature into lively urban neighborhoods.planned FEC passenger rail stations. These are the first priority areas for investment in walkability. The FEC rail line originally developed byHenry Flagler, historically carried passenger traffic along the Florida coast, creating many of Florida’s original historic settlements. Revivingpassenger rail service along this line thus restores connections to these historic communities that were severed decades ago when passengerservice was discontinued. Investments in walkability in these areas involve reinvestment and infill development, as can already be observed inplaces like Delray Beach and West Palm Beach.comprehensive approach increases the amount of area devoted to walkable, transit-oriented development. Wider investment allows for middle-range densities that are currently missing in the South Florida real-estate markets. Middle densities include a diversity of housing types such ascreating large concentrations of any one type of housing. A diversity of housing also allows a variety of people in different stages of their livesto live harmoniously together, generating a more stable, active community.region’s premier bus-rapid transit service.
