The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed small-scale comprehensive plan amendment to the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.
The project site is approximately ½ acre. The property is generally located on Joy Haven Road south of U.S. Hwy 441 between Mabel Lane and Mapache Lane. 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 developed as a single family residence and the proposed use would continue to be a single family residence. The surrounding County Future Land Use Map designations are to the north, south, east and west: County Regional Commercial. The existing Land Use designation for the property is County Regional Commercial. The proposed future land use designation of City Estate Residential is consistent with the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.
If the small scale comprehensive plan amendment is disapproved, the current County Future Land Use designation will apply.
The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing on the application on June 22, 2006.
1. Approve the requested small scale comprehensive plan amendment to City General Commercial.
2. Disapprove the proposed small scale comp plan amendment; or
3. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
This small-scale comprehensive plan amendment will have no direct fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
