Item Number: 5A.
Meeting Date: April 22, 2013
From: Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director
Subject: Ordinance amending the existing residential PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning for Thomas Baggett to change the permitted uses to allow a private motocross training facility for the current US National 250 Champion (Blake Baggett).
The Planning staff and the Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed amendments to the existing PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning for the subject property.
The project site is approximately 76 acres. The property is generally located on the east side of County Road 48, approximately 0.6 miles north of Austin Merritt Road as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is City PUD (Planned Unit Development). The current use of the property is undeveloped/agriculture and the proposed uses are for agriculture/private residence/personal moto-cross training facility for the current US National 250 Champion (Blake Baggett). This will be a very restricted low impact facility with noise at acceptable residential levels of 65-70 dB(A) (See PUD conditions and Exhibits D and G). The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) and City residential PUD (Planned Unit Development). The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are City Neighborhood Mixed Use and County Rural.
The proposed amendment to the PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning is compatible with the adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing future land use designation of City Neighborhood Mixed Use.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are undeveloped/agriculture.
Development of the property for the single home will require a septic system and existing well since City utilities are not available.
By a vote of 7 to 0 on March 21, 2013, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed PUD (Planned Unit Development) zoning.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is a positive fiscal impact to the City through having the US National 250 Champion (Blake Baggett) training facility in Leesburg and the possible future possible residential development of this property.

SIX FOOT HIGH BERM IF REQUIRED EXHIBIT E
desirable shape for a berm
The transition between the existing grade and the slope of the berm should be gradual. Soft contouring should make the berm appear as a natural part of the landscape. Berms should appear to be gradually emerging from the original grade rather than rising as an abrupt bump. Extra soil may need to be added at the base or the height of the berm to get a more natural effect. The tops of the berms should also be softly contoured rather than having a sharp peak. Moreover, grass berms with flatter crowns are easier to mow. Mowing grass on slopes that are too steep may result in an undesirable "scalped" look.
