The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed small-scale comprehensive plan amendment to the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.
The project site is approximately 2.86 acres. The property is generally located on the south side of East Main Street, west of Dixie Avenue and north of Crosby Avenue. 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 undeveloped and the proposed use is 44 attached fee simple townhouse units. The surrounding City Future Land Use Map designations are to the north Estate Density, to the south High Density, to the east General Commercial and to the west Low Density. The existing Land Use designation for the property is City Low Density. The proposed future land use designation of City High Density is consistent with the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.
The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on February 22, 2007 and by a vote of 5 to 0, recommended approval.
1. Approve the requested small scale comprehensive plan amendment to City High Density.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
