The Planning staff recommends approval of the amendment to Ordinance No. 06-145 to correct the scrivener’s error in the legal description of the Future Land Use Map amendment for the Serenby property.
The project site is approximately 127 acres. The general location is on the south side of CR 48, east of Bethel Baptist Church Road. This site was part of the 1st Cycle 2006 Large Scale amendments. The City Commission held the first reading on the Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for Serenby on May 22, 2006. Subsequently, the Commission adopted this ordinance on December 18, 2006. In revising the permanent Future Land Use Maps, staff determined the legal description was not complete due to a scrivener’s error. Staff has confirmed with the GIS Division that the enclosed legal description is complete.
1. Approve the amended ordinance to reflect the correct legal description for this site, which designates the site as City Estate Residential on the Future Land Use Map.
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
This large-scale comprehensive plan ordinance amendment will have no direct fiscal impact on the City of Leesburg.
