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) with the proposed conditions.
The project site is approximately .16 acre. The property is generally located west of McCormick Street, south of John’s Avenue and north of Bradford Avenue 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 an existing single family house and the proposed use is a community non-profit food pantry and clothing closet sponsored by the West Leesburg CDC. The surrounding zoning of adjacent properties is City R-2 (Medium Density Residential). The existing Land Use designation for the subject property is City Low Density Residential.
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 Low Density Residential.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are churches and single family residential.
The property currently has City utilities.
By a vote of 6 to 0 on February 17, 2011, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
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.
No fiscal impact is expected with this change.
