AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   July 9, 2007    

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Large Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for Lyden Properties, LTD (1)

 

 

Staff Recommendation

The Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed amendment to the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map which changes the Future Land Use classification from County Suburban and Employment Center to City Estate Residential and General Commercial. The Planning Commission held a hearing on this request September 7, 2006.

 

Analysis

The project site is approximately 157 acres. The general location is south of Orchard Road and east of Turnpike.  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 undeveloped and the surrounding Future Land Use Map designations are:

                        North   –  County Suburban and Urban Expansion

                        South   –  County Suburban and Employment Center

                        East     –  County Suburban

                        West    –  County Suburban and Employment Center

 

The Land Use for the property is currently County Suburban and Employment Center. The Annexation Agreement will require future rezoning to Planned Unit Development (PUD) by the developer, which will be consistent with the City’s adopted Comprehensive Plan.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are:

           

                        North   –  single family residential

                        South   –  undeveloped

                        East     –  undeveloped

                        West    –  undeveloped

 

Presently, as referenced above, the site is undeveloped. The proposed use of the site is for residential and commercial development.

 

Water and sewer are available along US Hwy 27. The developer will be required to make extensions and offsite improvements.

 

July 9, 2007

This site was included in the Florida Department of Community Affairs objections concerning:  Water Resource Planning – information has been provided by the Environmental Services Director; Transportation – a Traffic Analysis has been provided; and, Demonstrated need (show need for additional housing units) – density calculations have been compiled and provided with the population projections contained in the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

 

Options:

 

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

 

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.
