AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   September 13, 2010

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for rezoning for FDIC as Receiver for Colonial Bank/Central Florida Health Alliance, Inc., from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to SPUD (Small Planned Unit Development)

 

PROJECT:                 To allow for administrative offices with storage of IT hardware uses

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning staff and the Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) to SPUD (Small Planned Unit Development).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately one acre.  The property is generally located on the south side of W. Oak Terrace, east of Lee Street and north of W. North Boulevard as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City R-2 (Medium Density Residential). Currently, the property is undeveloped/vacant house and the proposed use is to allow for administrative offices with storage uses. The surrounding zoning is City R-2 (Medium Density Residential) on the north, east and west, and City C-3 (Highway Commercial) on the south. The proposed Land Use designation for the subject property is City General Commercial.

 

The proposed zoning district of City SPUD (Small Planned Unit Development) is compatible with the adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing future land use designation of City High Density Residential.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are office, commercial and single/multi-family residential.

 

Development of the property requires City utilities.

 

By a vote of 7 to 0 on August 19, 2010, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.

 

 

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City SPUD (Small Planned Unit Development) thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for this area.

            2.         Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through the further development of this property.
