Transportation and utility crossings of greenways lands.
Transportation and utility crossings of greenways lands.—
The Legislature recognizes that from time to time it may be necessary to serve statewide public needs by allowing transportation and utility uses to cross the greenways lands. When these crossings are needed, the location and design should consider and mitigate the impact on environmental resources, and the value of the land shall be paid based on fair market value.
In furtherance of previous legislative decisions and policy, the Legislature recognizes the need for the Lebanon Station-to-Wildwood Turnpike toll road extension and the need for it to cross greenways lands at the intersection of State Road 200 and State Road 484. The Department of Transportation shall pay fair compensation for the lands needed to accomplish the crossing of greenways lands and shall mitigate the impacts of the crossing to the extent practical.
Furthermore, the Legislature recognizes the needs expressed by Marion County to provide for the southerly extension of Sixtieth Avenue between State Road 200 and Interstate 75 and for the extension to cross the greenways lands to allow for the orderly growth and development of Marion County. Right-of-way for this extension across greenways lands shall be designed to mitigate the impacts to the extent practical, and the value of such lands shall be paid based on fair market value or, at the option of Marion County, the value can be subtracted from the amount of reimbursement due the county pursuant to s. 253.783.
s. 55, ch. 93-213.
