12under this section against a governmental entity, a property
13owner who seeks compensation under this section must present the
14claim in writing to the head of the governmental entity, except
15that if the property is classified as agricultural pursuant to
16s. 193.461, the notice period is 90 days. The property owner
17must submit, along with the claim, a bona fide, valid appraisal
18that supports the claim and demonstrates the loss in fair market
19value to the real property. If the action of government is the
20culmination of a process that involves more than one
21governmental entity, or if a complete resolution of all relevant
22issues, in the view of the property owner or in the view of a
23governmental entity to whom a claim is presented, requires the
24active participation of more than one governmental entity, the
25property owner shall present the claim as provided in this
26section to each of the governmental entities.
27     (c)  During the 90-day-notice period or the 180-day-notice
28period, unless extended by agreement of the parties, the
29governmental entity shall make a written settlement offer to
31     1.  An adjustment of land development or permit standards
32or other provisions controlling the development or use of land.
33     2.  Increases or modifications in the density, intensity,
34or use of areas of development.
35     3.  The transfer of developmental rights.
36     4.  Land swaps or exchanges.
37     5.  Mitigation, including payments in lieu of onsite

47     10.  Purchase of the real property, or an interest therein,
48by an appropriate governmental entity.
49     11.  No changes to the action of the governmental entity.
51If the property owner accepts the settlement offer, the
52governmental entity may implement the settlement offer by
53appropriate development agreement; by issuing a variance,
54special exception, or other extraordinary relief; or by other
55appropriate method, subject to paragraph (d).
56     (5)(a)  During the 90-day-notice period or the 180-day-

58property owner, each of the governmental entities provided
59notice pursuant to paragraph (4)(a) shall issue a written
60ripeness decision identifying the allowable uses to which the
61subject property may be put. The failure of the governmental
62entity to issue a written ripeness decision during the
63applicable 90-day-notice period or 180-day-notice period shall
64be deemed to ripen the prior action of the governmental entity,
65and shall operate as a ripeness decision that has been rejected
66by the property owner. The ripeness decision, as a matter of
67law, constitutes the last prerequisite to judicial review, and
68the matter shall be deemed ripe or final for the purposes of the
69judicial proceeding created by this section, notwithstanding the
70availability of other administrative remedies.

75agricultural enclave under s. 163.3164(32)(e)1. may apply for an
76amendment to the local government comprehensive plan pursuant to
77s. 163.3187. Such amendment is not subject to rule 9J-5.006(5),
78Florida Administrative Code, and may include land uses and
79intensities of use that are consistent with the uses and
80intensities of use of the industrial, commercial, or residential
81areas that surround the parcel. The local government shall make
82a determination regarding transmittal of such amendment within
83120 days after receipt of a complete application for the
84amendment and transmit the amendment to the state land planning
85agency for review pursuant to s. 163.3184 at the first available
86transmittal cycle. The state land planning agency may not use
87any provision of rule 9J-5.006(5), Florida Administrative Code,
88as a factor in determining compliance of an amendment under this
90     (b)  In order to preserve commercial agricultural activity,
91encourage mixed-use infill development, prevent urban sprawl,
92and provide more efficient delivery of municipal services and
93facilities, the owner of a parcel of land defined as an
94agricultural enclave under s. 163.3164(32)(e)2. may apply for an
95amendment to the local government comprehensive plan pursuant to
96s. 163.3187. Such amendment is not subject to rule 9J-5.006(5),
97Florida Administrative Code, and may include land uses and
98intensities of use that are consistent with the uses and
99intensities of use of the industrial, commercial, or residential
100areas that surround the parcel. Each application for a
101comprehensive plan amendment under this paragraph must include
102appropriate new urbanism concepts such as clustering, mixed-use
103development, the creation of rural village and city centers, and
104the transfer of development rights in order to discourage urban
105sprawl while protecting landowner rights.
106     1.  The local government and the owner of a parcel of land
107that is the subject of an application for an amendment under
108this paragraph have 180 days following the date that the local
109government receives a complete application to negotiate in good
110faith to reach consensus on the land uses and intensities of use
111that are consistent with the uses and intensities of use of the
112industrial, commercial, or residential areas that surround the
113parcel. Within 30 days after the local government's receipt of
114such an application, the local government and owner must agree
115in writing to a schedule for information submittal, public
116hearings, negotiations, and final action on the amendment, which
117schedule may thereafter be altered only with the written consent
118of the local government and the owner.  Compliance with the
119schedule in the written agreement constitutes good faith
120negotiations for purposes of subparagraph 3.
121     2.  Upon conclusion of good faith negotiations under
122subparagraph 1., regardless of whether the local government and
123owner reach consensus on the land uses and intensities of use
124that are consistent with the uses and intensities of use of the
125industrial, commercial, or residential areas that surround the
126parcel, the amendment must be transmitted to the state land
127planning agency for review pursuant to s. 163.3184. If the local
128government fails to transmit the amendment within 180 days after
129receipt of a complete application, the amendment must be
130immediately transferred to the state land planning agency for
131such review at the first available transmittal cycle. The state
132land planning agency may not use any provision of rule 9J-
1335.006(5), Florida Administrative Code, as a factor in
134determining compliance of an amendment under this paragraph.
135     3.  If the owner fails to negotiate in good faith, rule 9J-
1365.006(5), Florida Administrative Code, shall apply throughout
137the negotiation and amendment process under this paragraph.

251board of a water management district is authorized to adopt
252rules that identify preferred water supply sources for
253consumptive uses for which there is sufficient data to establish
254that a preferred source will provide a substantial new water
255supply to meet the existing and projected reasonable-beneficial
256uses of a water supply planning region identified pursuant to s.
257373.0361(1), while sustaining existing water resources and
258natural systems. At a minimum, such rules must contain a
259description of the preferred water supply source and an
260assessment of the water the preferred source is projected to
261produce. If an applicant proposes to use a preferred water
262supply source, that applicant's proposed water use is subject to
263s. 373.223(1), except that the proposed use of a preferred water
264supply source must be considered by a water management district

268preferred water supply source must be granted, when requested by
269the applicant, for at least a 20-year period and may be subject
270to the compliance reporting provisions of s. 373.236(4)(3).
271Nothing in this section shall be construed to exempt the use of
272preferred water supply sources from the provisions of ss.
273373.016(4) and 373.223(2) and (3), or be construed to provide
274that permits issued for the use of a nonpreferred water supply
275source must be issued for a duration of less than 20 years or
276that the use of a nonpreferred water supply source is not
277consistent with the public interest. Additionally, nothing in
278this section shall be interpreted to require the use of a
279preferred water supply source or to restrict or prohibit the use
280of a nonpreferred water supply source. Rules adopted by the
281governing board of a water management district to implement this
282section shall specify that the use of a preferred water supply
283source is not required and that the use of a nonpreferred water
284supply source is not restricted or prohibited.
285     Section 48.  Section 373.407, Florida Statutes, is created
286to read:
287     373.407  Memorandum of agreement for an agricultural-
288related exemption.--No later than July 1, 2006, the Department
289of Agriculture and Consumer Services and each water management
290district shall enter into a memorandum of agreement under which
291the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services shall assist
292in a determination by a water management district as to whether
293an existing or proposed activity qualifies for the exemption in
294s. 373.406(2). The memorandum of agreement shall provide a
295process by which, upon the request of a water management
296district or an affected person engaged in the occupation of
297agriculture, silviculture, floriculture, or horticulture, the
298water management district and the Department of Agriculture and
299Consumer Services shall conduct a review as to whether an
300existing or proposed activity qualifies for an agricultural-
301related exemption in s. 373.406(2). The memorandum of agreement
302shall provide processes and procedures for the conduct of the
303review, including the issuance of a recommendation by the
304Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
