The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the request to vacate a portion of the North Leesburg Subdivision No.1 and Picciola Park subdivision plats. The area to be vacated is not currently used for public access and is undeveloped. It is not needed for future access and should be vacated to allow the property to be development.
These subdivisions were platted in 1926. No development has occurred on the property and the roads were never constructed. The vacation of portions of these subdivisions is requested by Miguel Soto, the owner of the property, to allow for the development of a multifamily complex (condominium and/or rental). All required utility easements will be provided by the applicant in other areas of the development where necessary, in addition to easements that are proposed in the new Plat to be approved on this site.
By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
1. Approve the request to vacate the portions of the referenced subdivisions..
2. Other action the Commission may deem appropriate.
No fiscal impact is anticipated as a result of the vacation of these subdivisions.
