AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   March 26, 2007          

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Small Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for Melon Patch Players, Inc.

 

 

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 1.1 acres. The property is generally located along the west side of North 13th Street and south of the intersection with Center Street. 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 the Melon Patch Theater and this use is proposed to continue. 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 which does not allow the current use. The reason for this change is to allow a new sign to be installed. When researching this request, staff found the property was originally owned by the City and in 1955, the City gave the property for a community theater, which was developed as the Melon Patch Theater. No rezoning or land use change was done at that time. The proposed future land use designation of City Institutional is consistent with the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan and would correct the land use problem.

 

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on February 22, 2007 and by a vote of 5 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

There is no fiscal impact to the City.
