The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed rezoning for the subject property from County C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial) to City C-2 (Community Commercial).
The project site is approximately 1.09 acres. The property is generally located east of U.S. Highway 27 and south of Highland Lakes Boulevard, as shown on the attached General Location Map. The present zoning for this property is County C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial). Currently, the property is undeveloped, and the proposed use is medical offices. The surrounding zoning designations are County PUD (Planned Unit Development) to the north, County C-1 (Neighborhood Commercial) to the south, County A (Agriculture) to the east, and County RMRP (Mobile Home Rental Park District) to the west.
The proposed zoning district of C-2 (Community Commercial) is compatible with adjacent and nearby properties in the area and with the existing City future land use designation of General Commercial.
The existing land uses surrounding the property are single family/residential, office/professional, and undeveloped.
Development of the parcel shall require connection to City utilities at the owner’s expense.
By a vote of 6 to 0, the Planning Commission voted to recommend approval.
1. Approve the proposed rezoning to C-2 (Community Commercial), thereby allowing consistent zoning and development standards for the area.
2. Other such action as the Commission may deem appropriate.
There is no fiscal impact to the City.
