The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed amendment to the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map by changing the Future Land Use classification from County Urban Expansion and Rural to City Estate Residential. The Planning Commission held a hearing on this request September 7, 2006.
The project site is approximately 20 acres. The general location is south of CR 48, west of No. 2 Road. The project site is larger than ten (10.0) acres and is, therefore, considered a large-scale comprehensive land use plan amendment under state statutes. 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 larger than ten (10) acres.
The project site is currently undeveloped and the surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are:
North – County Urban Expansion
South – County Rural
East – County Urban Expansion
West – City Low Density Residential
The Land Use for the property is currently County Urban Expansion and Rural. The Annexation Agreement will require future rezoning to Planned Unit Development (PUD) by the developer, which will be consistent with the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are:
North – undeveloped
South – undeveloped
East – undeveloped
West – undeveloped
Presently, as referenced above, the site is undeveloped. The proposed use of the site is for residential development.
Water and sewer are currently being extended eastward from US Hwy 27 along CR 48 to a development located north of this site. The developer of the Price property will be required to extend them to this site.
1. To approve or disapprove the proposed City Future Land Use Map amendment designating the site as City Estate Residential.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
This large-scale comprehensive plan amendment will have no direct fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
