AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   June 11, 2007

 

FROM:                       Laura McElhanon, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Rezoning for William P. Floyd, Jr. and Lake County Citrus     Sales, Inc.

 

 

Staff Recommendation: 

The Planning Commission and Planning staff recommends approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County A (Agriculture) to City RE-1 (Estate Residential).

 

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 108 acres.  The property is generally situated east of the Turnpike, north of Orchard Drive, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County A (Agriculture). Currently, the property is undeveloped and the proposed use of the site is for residential development. The surrounding zoning designations are County A (Agriculture) to the east, south, and north, and County A (Agriculture) and County CFD (Community Facility District) to the west.

 

The proposed zoning district of City RE-1 (Estate Residential) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of City Estate Residential. However, the Annexation Agreement requires rezoning to a Planned Development District by the developer prior to development.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are undeveloped properties.

         

Development of the parcel shall require expansion of City utilities at the owner’s expense.

 

By a vote of 7 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval

 

Options:        

1.         Approve the proposed rezoning to City RE-1 (Estate Residential), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.

2.         Disapprove the proposed rezoning.

3.         Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is no fiscal impact to the City.
