AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   September 11, 2006   

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for a 30 acre parcel located South of Talley Road and West of Talley Box Road

 

 

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 and Employment Center to City Industrial. The Planning Commission held a hearing on this request September 7, 2006.

 

Analysis

The project site is approximately 30 acres. The general location is the south side of Talley Road, west of Talley Box 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 surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are:

                        North   –  City Industrial

                        South   –  City Industrial

                        East     –  City Industrial

                        West    –  City Industrial

 

The Land Use for the property is currently County Urban and Employment Center. The City is also processing a request for rezoning of this site to CIP (Commercial Industrial Planned) district, which will be consistent with the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are:

           

                        North   –  industrial office park

                        South   –  Florida Rock, undeveloped

                        East     –  warehouse, C & D Pavers

                        West    –  Middlesex Asphalt, Talley Rd Self Storage Co.

 

Presently, the site is undeveloped. The proposed use of the site is for industrial development.

 

Water and sewer services are available at the intersection of Talley Box Road and Talley Road and will be extended by the developer to this site.

July 9, 2007

This site was included in the Florida Department of Community Affairs objections concerning:  Transportation – a Traffic Analysis has been provided; and, Water Resource Planning – information has been provided by the Environmental Services Director.

 

Options:

 

1.      To approve or disapprove the proposed City Future Land Use Map amendment designating the site as City Industrial.

 

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.
