172     163.3177  Required and optional elements of comprehensive
173plan; studies and surveys.--
174     (6)  In addition to the requirements of subsections
175(1)-(5), the comprehensive plan shall include the following
177     (a)  A future land use plan element designating proposed
178future general distribution, location, and extent of the uses of
179land for residential uses, commercial uses, industry,
180agriculture, recreation, conservation, education, public
181buildings and grounds, other public facilities, and other
182categories of the public and private uses of land. Counties are
183encouraged to designate rural land stewardship areas, pursuant
184to the provisions of paragraph (11)(d), as overlays on the
185future land use map. Each future land use category must be
186defined in terms of uses included, and must include standards to
187be followed in the control and distribution of population
188densities and building and structure intensities. The proposed
189distribution, location, and extent of the various categories of
190land use shall be shown on a land use map or map series which
191shall be supplemented by goals, policies, and measurable
192objectives. The future land use plan shall be based upon
193surveys, studies, and data regarding the area, including the
194amount of land required to accommodate anticipated growth; the
195projected population of the area; the character of undeveloped
196land; the availability of water supplies, public facilities, and
197services; the vulnerability to natural hazards and the potential
198need for hazard mitigation; the need for redevelopment,
199including the renewal of blighted areas and the elimination of
200nonconforming uses which are inconsistent with the character of
201the community; the compatibility of uses on lands adjacent to or
202closely proximate to military installations; and, in rural
203communities, the need for job creation, capital investment, and
204economic development that will strengthen and diversify the
205community's economy. The future land use plan may designate
206areas for future planned development use involving combinations
207of types of uses for which special regulations may be necessary
208to ensure development in accord with the principles and
209standards of the comprehensive plan and this act. The future
210land use plan element shall include criteria to be used to
211achieve the compatibility of adjacent or closely proximate lands
212with military installations. In addition, for rural communities,
213the amount of land designated for future planned industrial use
214shall be based upon surveys and studies that reflect the need
215for job creation, capital investment, and the necessity to
216strengthen and diversify the local economies, and shall not be
217limited solely by the projected population of the rural
218community. The future land use plan of a county may also
219designate areas for possible future municipal incorporation. The
220land use maps or map series shall generally identify and depict
221historic district boundaries and shall designate historically
222significant properties meriting protection.  The future land use
223element must clearly identify the land use categories in which
224public schools are an allowable use.  When delineating the land
225use categories in which public schools are an allowable use, a
226local government shall include in the categories sufficient land
227proximate to residential development to meet the projected needs
228for schools in coordination with public school boards and may
229establish differing criteria for schools of different type or
230size.  Each local government shall include lands contiguous to
231existing school sites, to the maximum extent possible, within
232the land use categories in which public schools are an allowable
233use. All comprehensive plans must comply with the school siting
234requirements of this paragraph no later than October 1, 1999.
235The failure by a local government to comply with these school
236siting requirements by October 1, 1999, will result in the
237prohibition of the local government's ability to amend the local
238comprehensive plan, except for plan amendments described in s.
239163.3187(1)(b), until the school siting requirements are met.
240Amendments proposed by a local government for purposes of
241identifying the land use categories in which public schools are
242an allowable use or for adopting or amending the school-siting
243maps pursuant to s. 163.31776(3) are exempt from the limitation
244on the frequency of plan amendments contained in s. 163.3187.
245The future land use element shall include criteria that
246encourage the location of schools proximate to urban residential
247areas to the extent possible and shall require that the local
248government seek to collocate public facilities, such as parks,
249libraries, and community centers, with schools to the extent
250possible and to encourage the use of elementary schools as focal
251points for neighborhoods. For schools serving predominantly
252rural counties, defined as a county with a population of 100,000
253or fewer, an agricultural land use category shall be eligible
254for the location of public school facilities if the local
255comprehensive plan contains school siting criteria and the
256location is consistent with such criteria. Local governments
257required to update or amend their comprehensive plan to include
258criteria and address compatibility of adjacent or closely
259proximate lands with existing military installations in their
260future land use plan element shall transmit the update or
261amendment to the department by June 30, 2006.
262     (g)  For those units of local government identified in s.
263380.24, a coastal management element, appropriately related to
264the particular requirements of paragraphs (d) and (e) and
265meeting the requirements of s. 163.3178(2) and (3).  The coastal
266management element shall set forth the policies that shall guide
267the local government's decisions and program implementation with
268respect to the following objectives:
269     1.  Maintenance, restoration, and enhancement of the
270overall quality of the coastal zone environment, including, but

296     (2)  Each coastal management element required by s.
297163.3177(6)(g) shall be based on studies, surveys, and data; be
298consistent with coastal resource plans prepared and adopted
299pursuant to general or special law; and contain:
300     (d)  A component that which outlines principles for hazard
301mitigation and protection of human life and property against the
302effects of natural disaster, including population evacuation and
303local mitigation strategies that, which take into consideration
304the capability to safely evacuate the density of coastal
305population proposed in the future land use plan element in the
306event of an impending natural disaster.
307     (f)  A redevelopment component that which outlines the
308principles to which shall be used to eliminate inappropriate and

364     f.  Measures to ensure that public expenditures that
365subsidize development in the most vulnerable areas of the
366coastal high hazard area are limited to those expenditures
367needed to provide for public access to the beach and shoreline,
368restore beaches and dunes and other natural systems, correct
369existing hurricane evacuation deficiencies, or to make
370facilities more disaster resistant;
371     g.  Measures that commit to planning and regulatory
