Campus Development Agreement

The University Comprehensive Master Plan process is intended to facilitate coordination between universities and their host local governments. To this end, Chapter 1013.3, Florida Statutes requires that universities enter into Campus Development Agreements with these governments. Among other things, the Campus Development Agreement must address level-of-service requirements, deficiencies, and campus development impacts on public facilities and services including roads, sanitary sewer, solid waste, drainage, potable water, parks and recreation and public transportation. The Agreements may also address public electricity, non-potable water, law enforcement, fire and emergency rescue, gas and telephone facilities and services. The Agreements are also intended to ensure consistency between the university Comprehensive Master Plan and the local government Comprehensive Plan. This statutory requirement first applied to the University of Florida Comprehensive Plan developed in 1995.
