AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   September 11, 2006   

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Small Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for City of Leesburg-Highland Lakes Water Plant

 

 

Staff Recommendation

The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed small-scale comprehensive plan amendment to the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.

 

Analysis

The project site is approximately one acre. The property is generally located east of U.S. 27, at the terminus of Cash Court. 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 used as a water plant and the proposed use would continue the water plant use. The surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are City Low Density and County Urban Expansion. The existing Land Use designation for the property is County Urban Expansion. The proposed future land use designation of City Institutional is consistent with the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.

 

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on August 10, 2006 and by a vote of 4 to 0, recommended approval.

 

Options         

1.   Approve the requested small scale comprehensive plan amendment to City                                      Institutional.

2.   Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact

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