CONCURRENCY-MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN FLORIDA: COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT

Concurrency-management systems (CMS) tie growth-management practices to funding infrastructure improvements, ensuring that facilities are in place when they are needed. This technical paper reviews the strengths and weaknesses of two divergent CMS approaches implemented in Broward and Lee Counties, Florida. Specific conceptual and practical methods relate to administrative and operational topics, level-of-service capacity allocations, implementation of growth management policies, and facility funding. From the comparative analysis of Broward and Lee Counties--which similarly had large infrastructure deficits and limited funding sources--an ideal CMS must be predictable, fair, flexible and provide dedicated funding to address infrastructure deficits. The author states that because this type of growth-management practice is new, long-term monitoring and evaluative research is needed.
