The Planning staff with the revised uses and the Planning Commission recommends approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County PUD (Planned Unit Development) to City P (Public).
The project site is approximately one acre. The property is generally located east of Highway U.S. 27, west of Newcombe Circle, south of Highland Lakes Boulevard as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County PUD (Planned Unit Development). The current use of the property is a city well site. The surrounding zoning designations are compatible with the proposed rezoning. The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations and proposed land use designation of the subject property to City Institutional is also compatible.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family and undeveloped property.
The property has City utilities.
By a vote of 6 to 0 on January 21, 2010, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to City P (Public) thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for this area.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through use of this property for a well site.
