The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed small-scale comprehensive plan amendment to the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.
The project site is approximately .6 acres. The property is generally located on the east side of Thomas Avenue and on the north side of Olivet Avenue. The project site is ten (10) or less acres and is, therefore, considered a small-scale comprehensive land use plan amendment. The City will notify the Florida Department of Community Affairs of the plan amendment and the Department will review the project site area to confirm that it is ten (10) acres or less. At that time, the Department will determine that it is a local issue and not subject to Department review.
Currently, the property is undeveloped/vacant house and part of a multi-unit storage building. The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations around the subject property are all compatible with the proposed future land use designation. The proposed land use designation change from City Low Density Residential to City Industrial is also consistent with the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan and would allow the use of the property for an expansion of an existing adjacent self storage facility.
The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on July 22, 2010 and by a vote of 6 to 0, recommended approval.
1. Approve the requested small scale comprehensive plan amendment to City Industrial.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
