    5         objectives for management goals to include the
    6         preservation of low-impact agriculture; requiring
    7         updated land management plans to identify conservation
    8         lands that could support low-impact agriculture and
    9         conservation lands that are no longer needed and could
   10         be disposed of; requiring the Division of State Lands
   11         to review state-owned conservation lands and determine
   12         if such lands could support low-impact agriculture or
   13         be disposed of; requiring the division to submit a
   14         list of such lands to the Acquisition and Restoration
   15         Council; requiring the council to provide
   16         recommendations to the division and the Board of
   17         Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund;

   19         agencies to offer agreements for low-impact
   20         agriculture on such lands under certain conditions;
   21         providing applicability of such agreements; specifying
   22         that the board may dispose of such lands under certain
   23         conditions; requiring the division to review certain
   24         nonconservation lands and make recommendations to the
   25         board as to whether such lands should be retained in
   26         public ownership or disposed of; creating s. 253.87,
   27         F.S.; directing the Department of Environmental
   28         Protection to include certain county, municipal,
   29         state, and federal lands in the Florida State-Owned
   30         Lands and Records Information System (SOLARIS)
   31         database and to update the database at specified
   32         intervals; requiring counties, municipalities, and
   33         financially disadvantaged small communities to submit
   34         a list of certain lands to the department by a
   35         specified date and at specified intervals; directing
   36         the department to conduct a study and submit a report
   37         to the Governor and the Legislature by a specified

   48         parcels no longer essential or necessary for
   49         conservation purposes and valued below a certain
   50         threshold; providing that such parcels may be sold
   51         directly to the highest bidder; authorizing districts
   52         to include restrictions on future use of such parcels
   53         sold; directing the department to consolidate
   54         specified parcels of conservation lands under a
   55         single, unified title and legal description by a
   56         specified date; providing an effective date.
   58  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   60         Section 1. Subsection (1), paragraphs (b) and (e) of
   61  subsection (5), and subsection (6) of section 253.034, Florida
   62  Statutes, are amended, and paragraph (e) is added to subsection
   63  (2), to read:
   64         253.034 State-owned lands; uses.—
   65         (1)(a) The Legislature finds that the total land area of
   66  the state is approximately 34.7 million acres and, as of January
   67  1, 2014, approximately 3.2 million acres of conservation lands
   68  are titled in the name of the Board of Trustees of the Internal
   69  Improvement Trust Fund. Approximately 1.2 million acres of these
   70  conservation lands, which equal approximately 3.4 percent of the
   71  total land area of the state, are uplands located above the
   72  boundary of jurisdictional wetlands.
   73         (b) All lands acquired pursuant to chapter 259 shall be
   74  managed to serve the public interest by protecting and
   75  conserving land, air, water, and the state’s natural resources,
   76  which contribute to the public health, welfare, and economy of
   77  the state. These lands shall be managed to provide for areas of
   78  natural resource based recreation, and to ensure the survival of
   79  plant and animal species and the conservation of finite and
   80  renewable natural resources. The state’s lands and natural
   81  resources shall be managed using a stewardship ethic that
   82  assures these resources will be available for the benefit and
   83  enjoyment of all people of the state, both present and future.
   84  It is the intent of the Legislature that, where feasible and
   85  consistent with the goals of protection and conservation of
   86  natural resources associated with lands held in the public trust
   87  by the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund,
   88  public land not designated for single-use purposes pursuant to
   89  paragraph (2)(b) be managed for multiple-use purposes. All
   90  multiple-use land management strategies shall address public
   91  access and enjoyment, resource conservation and protection,
   92  ecosystem maintenance and protection, and protection of
   93  threatened and endangered species, and the degree to which
   94  public-private partnerships or endowments may allow the entity
   95  with management responsibility to enhance its ability to manage
   96  these lands. The Acquisition and Restoration Council created in
   97  s. 259.035 shall recommend rules to the board of trustees, and
   98  the board shall adopt rules necessary to carry out the purposes
   99  of this section.
  100         (2) As used in this section, the following phrases have the
  101  following meanings:
  102         (e)“Low-impact agriculture,” as used in this chapter,
  103  means any agricultural activity that, when occurring on
  104  conservation land or on land under a permanent conservation
  105  easement:
  106         1. Does not cause or contribute to violations of water
  107  quality standards as evidenced by water quality monitoring
  108  prescribed by the department or an applicable water management
  109  district;
  110         2. Is consistent with an adopted land management plan;
  111         3. Does not adversely impact the land’s conservation
  112  purpose; and
  113         4. Does not adversely limit recreational use. 
  115  Lands acquired by the state as a gift, through donation, or by
  116  any other conveyance for which no consideration was paid, and
  117  which are not managed for conservation, outdoor resource-based
  118  recreation, or archaeological or historic preservation under a
  119  land management plan approved by the board of trustees are not
  120  conservation lands.
  121         (5) Each manager of conservation lands shall submit to the
  122  Division of State Lands a land management plan at least every 10
  123  years in a form and manner prescribed by rule by the board and
  124  in accordance with the provisions of s. 259.032. Each manager of
  125  conservation lands shall also update a land management plan
  126  whenever the manager proposes to add new facilities or make
  127  substantive land use or management changes that were not
  128  addressed in the approved plan, or within 1 year of the addition
  129  of significant new lands. Each manager of nonconservation lands
  130  shall submit to the Division of State Lands a land use plan at
  131  least every 10 years in a form and manner prescribed by rule by
  132  the board. The division shall review each plan for compliance
  133  with the requirements of this subsection and the requirements of
  134  the rules established by the board pursuant to this section. All
  135  land use plans, whether for single-use or multiple-use
  136  properties, shall include an analysis of the property to
  137  determine if any significant natural or cultural resources are
  138  located on the property. Such resources include archaeological
  139  and historic sites, state and federally listed plant and animal
  140  species, and imperiled natural communities and unique natural
  141  features. If such resources occur on the property, the manager
  142  shall consult with the Division of State Lands and other
  143  appropriate agencies to develop management strategies to protect
  144  such resources. Land use plans shall also provide for the
  145  control of invasive nonnative plants and conservation of soil
  146  and water resources, including a description of how the manager
  147  plans to control and prevent soil erosion and soil or water
  148  contamination. Land use plans submitted by a manager shall
  149  include reference to appropriate statutory authority for such
  150  use or uses and shall conform to the appropriate policies and
  151  guidelines of the state land management plan. Plans for managed
  152  areas larger than 1,000 acres shall contain an analysis of the
  153  multiple-use potential of the property, which analysis shall
  154  include the potential of the property to generate revenues to
  155  enhance the management of the property. Additionally, the plan
  156  shall contain an analysis of the potential use of private land
  157  managers to facilitate the restoration or management of these
  158  lands. In those cases where a newly acquired property has a
  159  valid conservation plan that was developed by a soil and
  160  conservation district, such plan shall be used to guide
  161  management of the property until a formal land use plan is
  162  completed.
  163         (b) Short-term and long-term management goals shall include
  164  measurable objectives for the following, as appropriate:
  165         1. Habitat restoration and improvement.
  166         2. Public access and recreational opportunities.
  167         3. Hydrological preservation and restoration.
  168         4. Sustainable forest management.
  169         5. Exotic and invasive species maintenance and control.
  170         6. Capital facilities and infrastructure.
  171         7. Cultural and historical resources.
  172         8. Imperiled species habitat maintenance, enhancement,
  173  restoration, or population restoration.
  174         9. Preservation of low-impact agriculture.
  175         (e) Land management plans are to be updated every 10 years
  176  on a rotating basis. Each updated land management plan must
  177  identify conservation lands under the plan, except lands managed
  178  as a state park or preserve, in part or in whole,:
  179         1. Which could support low-impact agricultural uses while
  180  maintaining the land’s conservation purposes; and
  181         2. Which are no longer needed for conservation purposes and
  182  could be disposed of in fee simple or with the state retaining a
  183  permanent conservation easement.
  184         (6) The board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust
  185  Fund shall determine which lands titled to, the title to which
  186  is vested in the board, may be surplused. For conservation
  187  lands, the board shall determine whether the lands are no longer
  188  needed for conservation purposes and may dispose of them by an
  189  affirmative vote of at least three members. In the case of a
  190  land exchange involving the disposition of conservation lands,
  191  the board must determine by an affirmative vote of at least
  192  three members that the exchange will result in a net positive
  193  conservation benefit. For all other lands, the board shall
  194  determine whether the lands are no longer needed and may dispose
  195  of them by an affirmative vote of at least three members.
  196         (a) For the purposes of this subsection, all lands acquired
  197  by the state before July 1, 1999, using proceeds from
  198  Preservation 2000 bonds, the Conservation and Recreation Lands
  199  Trust Fund, the Water Management Lands Trust Fund,
  200  Environmentally Endangered Lands Program, and the Save Our Coast
  201  Program and titled to the board which are identified as core
  202  parcels or within original project boundaries are deemed to have
  203  been acquired for conservation purposes.
  204         (b) For any lands purchased by the state on or after July
  205  1, 1999, before acquisition, the board must determine which
  206  parcels must be designated as having been acquired for
  207  conservation purposes. Lands acquired for use by the Department
  208  of Corrections, the Department of Management Services for use as
  209  state offices, the Department of Transportation, except those
  210  specifically managed for conservation or recreation purposes, or
  211  the State University System or the Florida College System may
  212  not be designated as having been purchased for conservation
  213  purposes.
  214         (c)1. At least every 10 years, the division shall review
  215  all state-owned conservation lands titled to the board to
  216  determine whether any such lands could support low-impact
  217  agricultural uses while maintaining the land’s conservation
  218  purposes. After such review, the division shall submit to the
  219  council a list of such lands, including any additional lands
  220  identified in any updated land management plan pursuant to
  221  subparagraph (5)(e)1. Within 9 months after receiving the list,
  222  the council shall provide recommendations to the division as to
  223  whether any such lands could support low-impact agricultural
  224  uses while maintaining the land’s conservation purposes. After
  225  considering such recommendations, the division may direct
  226  managing agencies to offer agreements for low-impact agriculture
  227  on lands that it determines could support such agriculture while
  228  maintaining the land’s conservation purposes. This section does
  229  not prohibit a managing agency from entering into agreements as
  230  otherwise provided by law. An agreement entered into pursuant to
  231  this paragraph may not exceed a term of 10 years. However, an
  232  agreement may be renewed with the consent of the division as a
  233  component of each land management plan or land use plan and in a
  234  form and manner prescribed by rule by the board, each manager
  235  shall evaluate and indicate to the board those lands that are
  236  not being used for the purpose for which they were originally
  237  leased. For conservation lands, the council shall review and
  238  recommend to the board whether such lands should be retained in
  239  public ownership or disposed of by the board. For
  240  nonconservation lands, the division shall review such lands and
  241  recommend to the board whether such lands should be retained in
  242  public ownership or disposed of by the board.
  243         2. At least every 10 years, the division shall review all
  244  state-owned conservation lands titled to the board to determine
  245  whether any such lands are no longer needed for conservation
  246  purposes and could be disposed of in fee simple or with the
  247  state retaining a permanent conservation easement. After such
  248  review, the division shall submit a list of such lands,
  249  including additional conservation lands identified in an updated
  250  land management plan pursuant to subparagraph (5)(e)2., to the
  251  council. Within 9 months after receiving the list, the council
  252  shall provide recommendations to the board as to whether any
  253  such lands are no longer needed for conservation purposes and
  254  could be disposed of in fee simple or with the state retaining a
  255  permanent conservation easement. After reviewing such list and
  256  considering such recommendations, if the board determines by an
  257  affirmative vote of at least three members of the board that any
  258  such lands are no longer needed for conservation purposes, the
  259  board may dispose of the lands in fee simple or with the state
  260  retaining a permanent conservation easement.
  261         3. At least every 10 years, the division shall review all
  262  encumbered and unencumbered nonconservation lands titled to the
  263  board and recommend to the board whether any such lands should
  264  be retained in public ownership or disposed of by the board. The
  265  board may dispose of nonconservation lands under this paragraph
  266  by a majority vote of the board.
  267         (d) Lands titled to owned by the board which are not
  268  actively managed by any state agency or for which a land
  269  management plan has not been completed pursuant to subsection
  270  (5) must be reviewed by the council or its successor for its
  271  recommendation as to whether such lands should be disposed of by
  272  the board.
  273         (e) Before any decision by the board to surplus lands, the
  274  Acquisition and Restoration council shall review and make
  275  recommendations to the board concerning the request for
  276  surplusing. The council shall determine whether the request for
  277  surplusing is compatible with the resource values of and
  278  management objectives for such lands.
  279         (f) In reviewing lands titled to owned by the board, the
  280  council shall consider whether such lands would be more
  281  appropriately owned or managed by the county or other unit of
  282  local government in which the land is located. The council shall
  283  recommend to the board whether a sale, lease, or other
  284  conveyance to a local government would be in the best interests
  285  of the state and local government. The provisions of This
  286  paragraph does not in no way limit the provisions of ss. 253.111
  287  and 253.115. Such lands shall be offered to the state, county,
  288  or local government for a period of 45 days. Permittable uses
  289  for such surplus lands may include public schools; public
  290  libraries; fire or law enforcement substations; governmental,
  291  judicial, or recreational centers; and affordable housing
  292  meeting the criteria of s. 420.0004(3). County or local
  293  government requests for surplus lands shall be expedited
  294  throughout the surplusing process. If the county or local
  295  government does not elect to purchase such lands in accordance
  296  with s. 253.111, any surplusing determination involving other
  297  governmental agencies shall be made when the board decides the
  298  best public use of the lands. Surplus lands properties in which
  299  governmental agencies have not expressed an no interest must
  300  then be available for sale on the private market.
  301         (g) The sale price of lands determined to be surplus
  302  pursuant to this subsection and s. 253.82 shall be determined by
  303  the division, which shall consider an appraisal of the property,
  304  or, if the estimated value of the land is $500,000 or less, a
  305  comparable sales analysis or a broker’s opinion of value. The
  306  division may require a second appraisal. The individual or
  307  entity that requests to purchase the surplus parcel shall pay
  308  all costs associated with determining the property’s value, if
  309  any.
  310         1. A written valuation of land determined to be surplus
  311  pursuant to this subsection and s. 253.82, and related documents
  312  used to form the valuation or which pertain to the valuation,
  313  are confidential and exempt from s. 119.07(1) and s. 24(a), Art.
  314  I of the State Constitution.
  315         a. The exemption expires 2 weeks before the contract or
  316  agreement regarding the purchase, exchange, or disposal of the
  317  surplus land is first considered for approval by the board.
  318         b. Before expiration of the exemption, the division may
  319  disclose confidential and exempt appraisals, valuations, or
  320  valuation information regarding surplus land:
  321         (I) During negotiations for the sale or exchange of the
  322  land.
  323         (II) During the marketing effort or bidding process
  324  associated with the sale, disposal, or exchange of the land to
  325  facilitate closure of such effort or process.
  326         (III) When the passage of time has made the conclusions of
  327  value invalid.
  328         (IV) When negotiations or marketing efforts concerning the
  329  land are concluded.
  330         2. A unit of government that acquires title to lands
  331  pursuant to this paragraph hereunder for less than appraised
  332  value may not sell or transfer title to all or any portion of
  333  the lands to any private owner for 10 years. Any unit of
  334  government seeking to transfer or sell lands pursuant to this
  335  paragraph must first allow the board of trustees to reacquire
  336  such lands for the price at which the board sold such lands.
  337         (h) Parcels with a market value over $500,000 must be
  338  initially offered for sale by competitive bid. The division may
  339  use agents, as authorized by s. 253.431, for this process. Any
  340  parcels unsuccessfully offered for sale by competitive bid, and
  341  parcels with a market value of $500,000 or less, may be sold by
  342  any reasonable means, including procuring real estate services,
  343  open or exclusive listings, competitive bid, auction, negotiated
  344  direct sales, or other appropriate services, to facilitate the
  345  sale.
  346         (i) After reviewing the recommendations of the council, the
  347  board shall determine whether lands identified for surplus are
  348  to be held for other public purposes or are no longer needed.
  349  The board may require an agency to release its interest in such
  350  lands. A state agency, county, or local government that has
  351  requested the use of a property that was to be declared as
  352  surplus must secure the property under lease within 90 days
  353  after being notified that it may use such property.
  354         (j) Requests for surplusing may be made by any public or
  355  private entity or person. All requests shall be submitted to the
  356  lead managing agency for review and recommendation to the
  357  council or its successor. Lead managing agencies have 90 days to
  358  review such requests and make recommendations. Any surplusing
  359  requests that have not been acted upon within the 90-day time
  360  period shall be immediately scheduled for hearing at the next
  361  regularly scheduled meeting of the council or its successor.
  362  Requests for surplusing pursuant to this paragraph are not
  363  required to be offered to local or state governments as provided
  364  in paragraph (f).
  365         (k) Proceeds from any sale of surplus lands pursuant to
  366  this subsection shall be deposited into the fund from which such
  367  lands were acquired. However, if the fund from which the lands
  368  were originally acquired no longer exists, such proceeds shall
  369  be deposited into an appropriate account to be used for land
  370  management by the lead managing agency assigned the lands before
  371  the lands were declared surplus. Funds received from the sale of
  372  surplus nonconservation lands, or lands that were acquired by
  373  gift, by donation, or for no consideration, shall be deposited
  374  into the Internal Improvement Trust Fund.
  375         (l) Notwithstanding this subsection, such disposition of
  376  land may not be made if it would have the effect of causing all
  377  or any portion of the interest on any revenue bonds issued to
  378  lose the exclusion from gross income for federal income tax
  379  purposes.
  380         (m) The sale of filled, formerly submerged land that does
  381  not exceed 5 acres in area is not subject to review by the
  382  council or its successor.
  383         (n) The board may adopt rules to administer this section
  384  which may include procedures for administering surplus land
  385  requests and criteria for when the division may approve requests
  386  to surplus nonconservation lands on behalf of the board.

  476         Section 4. Subsection (8) is added to section 373.089,
  477  Florida Statutes, to read:
  478         373.089 Sale or exchange of lands, or interests or rights
  479  in lands.—The governing board of the district may sell lands, or

  481  title or to which it may hereafter acquire title in the
  482  following manner:
  483         (8)If a parcel of land is no longer essential or necessary
  484  for conservation purposes and is valued at $25,000 or less as
  485  determined by a certified appraisal obtained within 360 days
  486  before any sale, the governing board may sell the lot to an
  487  adjacent property owner. Notwithstanding the successive
  488  publishing requirements in subsection (3), a water management
  489  district must cause a notice of intention to sell to be
  490  published no more than 45 days prior to sale, send notice of its
  491  intention to sell the parcel to adjacent property owners by
  492  certified mail, and post the notice of sale on its website. The
  493  governing board may close the sale of the parcel without
  494  receiving bids after 14 days from such publication. If, within
  495  14 days after such publication, two or more owners of adjacent
  496  properties notify the water management district of their desire
  497  to purchase the parcel, the water management district shall
  498  accept sealed bids from such property owners and may sell such
  499  parcel to the highest bidder or reject all offers. The water
  500  management district may include a restriction on the future use
  501  of such parcel as a term and condition of the sale.
  502         Section 5. Consolidating titles to state-owned conservation
  503  lands.—As expeditiously as possible, but not later than July 1,
  504  2018, the Department of Environmental Protection shall
  505  consolidate under a single, unified title and legal description
  506  all individually titled parcels of conservation lands solely
  507  owned by the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust
  508  Fund that are contiguous to other parcels of conservation lands
  509  solely owned by the board.
  510         Section 6. This act shall take effect July 1, 2015.
