On December 12, 1995, the Administration Commission entered a Final Order in the Monroe County Comprehensive Plan proceeding. The Final Order found Monroe County's comprehensive plan not in compliance and adopted the Recommended Order of the Hearing Officer, with few exceptions. Additionally, the Final Order set forth remedial actions necessary to bring the plan into compliance.

The Final Order directed the Secretary of the Commission to notice a proposed rule which would amend Monroe County's comprehensive plan by adopting those policies necessary to bring the plan into compliance. Proposed amendments to Rule 28-20.100, F.A.C., were published in the Florida Administrative Weekly on December 29, 1995. In addition to noticing a proposed rule, the Final Order directed that a component of the rulemaking process would include facilitated negotiation among the parties to the proceeding below and the Departments of Environmental Protection, Health and Rehabilitative Services, and Transportation, and the South Florida Water Management District. The facilitated rulemaking negotiation meetings were conducted during the months of December, 1995, and January, 1996, and a Facilitators' Final Report was issued on February 9, 1996. The Facilitators' Final Report was incorporated into the rulemaking record as provided for in section 120.54(3)(a), F.S.

Public hearings to receive comments on proposed amendments to Rule 28-20.100, F.A.C., were conducted on January 23 - 25, 1996, in Key Largo, Key Colony Beach, and Key West, and the record was open to written comments through February 9, 1996.

The Final Order entered by the Commission on December 12, 1995, was appealed to the First District Court of Appeal by six parties to the proceeding. Additionally, eight petitions were filed with the Division of Administrative Hearings challenging the validity of proposed amendments to Rule 28-20.100, F.A.C.
