A study concluded that the performance of the intersection would not be diminished by the changes, and the state ZRXOGVDYHDSSUR[LPDWHO\ Because the roundabout affects land around the airport, a land-swap and payment deal was coordinated between the state, the county and the Bureau of Aeronautics. Under the original arrangement, the county would pay the state $550,000 then be reimbursed 95 percent by the BOA. The county needs to issue payment now so that the BOA can reimburse WKHFRXQW\EHIRUHWKHHQGRILWVĂ&#x20AC;VFDO\HDU (Oct. 1).

RESOLUTION REGARDING INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION OF SHORELAND ZONING ORDINANCE WHEREAS, the Polk County Board of Supervisors adopted its current Shoreland Zoning Ordinance on or about April 1, 2010. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shoreland Ordinanceâ&#x20AC;?); and WHEREAS, as is the case with most ordinances, in many instances, provisions of the Shoreland Ordinance could fairly have more than one interpretation; and WHEREAS, it has come to the attention of the Board of Supervisors, through a number of citizen complaints that the manner in which the Shoreland Ordinance is applied, enforced and interpreted is oftentimes unnecessarily restrictive and unfair; and WHEREAS, as a result of the economic importance of tourism related to Polk Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lakes and rivers, an overly restrictive or unnecessarily burdensome interpretation or application of the Shoreland Ordinance, when a less restrictive or burdensome interpretation is available under the Shoreland Ordinance, can cause serious and harmful consequences to the property owner and can cause negative consequences for the local economy, local businesses, jobs, economic growth and the prosperity of the citizens of Polk County; and WHEREAS, the ultimate goal of all of Polk Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ordinances should effectuate life, liberty and happiness of the citizens of Polk County; and WHEREAS, a vibrant economy and good jobs are critical to any notion of life, liberty and happiness; and WHEREAS, the public policy of land use regulation favors the free and unrestricted use of private property such that provisions of land use ordinances that restrict the use of property must be in clear, unambiguous and peremptory terms.
