AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

 

MEETING DATE:   November 10, 2008   

 

FROM:                       Bill Wiley, AICP, Community Development Director

 

SUBJECT:                  Ordinance for Small Scale Comprehensive Plan Amendment for the Lee Hess, Inc.

 

 

Staff Recommendation

The Planning staff and Planning Commission recommend approval of the proposed small-scale comprehensive plan amendment to the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan.

 

Analysis

The project site is approximately 1.34 acres. The property is generally on the south side of C.R. 441 just west of the intersection of C.R. 44 and Sleepy Hollow Road.  The project site is ten or less acres and is, therefore, considered a small-scale comprehensive land use plan amendment. 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 ten acres or less. At that time, the Department will determine that it is a local issue and not subject to Department review.

 

Currently, the property is a closed convenience store with gas pumps. The surrounding City Future Land Use Map designations are County Urban to the north, City General Commercial to the west, City General Commercial and Conservation to the east, and City Low Density and High Density to the south.  The existing Future Land Use Map designation for the subject property is County Employment Center and County Urban. The proposed Future Land Use designation of City General Commercial is consistent with the City’s adopted Growth Management Plan and would allow development of the property for the proposed use of vehicle sales.  

 

The Planning Commission held a public hearing on the application on October 9, 2008 and by a vote of 6 to 0, recommended approval.

 

Options         

1.         Approve the requested small scale comprehensive plan amendment to General Commercial.

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

 

Fiscal Impact

There is no fiscal impact to the City with this application.
