AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

MEETING DATE:   May 22, 2006 

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP

                                    Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance approving Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment:  Serenby (Zoltan, Kennedy, Selway Farms)

 

 

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 Urban Expansion to City Estate Residential. The Planning Commission will hold a hearing on this request on May 18, 2006.

 

Analysis

The project site is approximately 127 acres. The general location is on the south side of CR 48, east of Bethel Baptist Church 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 single family residential and vacant, and the surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are:

North   –  County Urban Expansion

                        South   –  County Rural

                        East     –  County Urban Expansion

                        West    –  County Urban Expansion

 

The Land Use for the property is currently County Urban Expansion. The proposed designation of City Estate Residential is consistent with the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are:

           

                        North   –  undeveloped and single family residential

                        South   –  undeveloped and single family residential

                        East     –  undeveloped and single family residential

                        West    –  undeveloped and single family residential

 

Presently, as referenced above, the site is single family residential and vacant. The proposed use of the site is single family residential development.

 

Water and sewer services are available in the area. The provision of utilities to this site is not likely to have significant adverse effects on the City’s utility systems. The developer is responsible for all costs of construction to make the necessary hook-ups to City utilities in accordance with City requirements.

 

Options:

 

1.      To approve or disapprove the proposed City Future Land Use Map amendment designating the site as City Estate Residential and Conservation.

 

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.
