Staff Recommendation: 

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

           

Analysis:

The project site is approximately 80 acres.  The property is generally located south of C.R 48 and east of Number Two Road, 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 is a single family residential uses. The surrounding zoning designations are all County A (Agriculture).

                                             

The proposed zoning district of City RE-1 (Estate Density Residential) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the proposed City future land use designation of City Estate.

 

The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family residential, undeveloped property, groves and planted pines.

         

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

 

By a vote of 6 to 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.

 

Options:        

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

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

 

Fiscal Impact:

There is no fiscal impact to the City.
