AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   September 11, 2006   

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for Banning Ranch

 

 

Staff Recommendation

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 Rural to City Estate Residential. The Planning Commission held a hearing on this request September 7, 2006. (The applicant requested City Low Density Residential.)

 

Analysis

The project site is approximately 667 acres. The general location is west of CR 33, south of the Turnpike.  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 Rural

                        South   –  County Rural

                        East     –  County Rural

                        West    –  County Rural

 

The Land Use for the property is currently County 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 is available at the intersection of CR 33 and CR 48/470 and will be extended by the developer to this site.

 

Options:

 

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. 

 

Fiscal Impact:

This large-scale comprehensive plan amendment will have no direct fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
