Received the first step of wetland permitting from Steve today. This is
the CAD (Conservation area determination). CAD is basically a synonym
for "overprices overhead maps." It's sort of frustrating, because I'm
pretty sure I could have found the maps myself on the internet and done
this on my own, but I'm not quite sophisticated enough with the
terminology to do it on my own. Basically there's standard stuff that's
pulled from the property appraiser site (I can do that, easily),
hydrologic soils maps (I think I came across this once), and a wetland
delineation map (ok, I probably needed Steve for this one).
guess in the long run we need Steve anyways to go to bat for us with
the County, but it's frustrating to drop $$$ on 5 pieces of paper with
basic information. C'est la vie, I guess.
Two weeks till the
meeting with our designer! I'd like to go to a bunch of model homes
next weekend and take pics/collect floor plans so that when we go to
Dave, I'll have an idea of how big rooms were that I liked, etc. I'm
thinking Avalon Park area, Clermont, and Heathrow/Sanford W of I-4.
Those seem to be places that are being heavily developed, so I could
hit a bunch of models at once.
