Summary:

The subject property consists of a 0.67 acre parcel located at the northeast corner of Virginia Avenue and US Alternate 19 North. This parcel contains a single-family home. It is designated Residential/Office General (R/OG) on the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and zoned P-1, Professional Office. The property owner is looking to redevelop the property with a pharmacy. This request will require changes to the FLUM and Zoning Atlas. They are proposing a FLUM amendment to Commercial Neighborhood (CN) and a zoning change to C-1-CO, Neighborhood Commercial with a Conditional Overlay limiting the use on the site to a compound pharmacy. The FDA defines a compound pharmacy as a specialized type of pharmacy that involves the process of combining, mixing, or altering ingredients to create a medication tailored to the needs of an individual patient.

The subject property fronts US Alternate 19 and is adjacent to a mixture of commercial and office uses to the north and south, as well as across US Alternate 19 to the west. The subject property is adjacent to a single-family residential home to the east. The US Alternate 19 corridor in this area contains a variety of nonresidential uses with the more intensive uses on the west side of the corridor. This proposed amendment can be considered consistent and compatible with the surrounding uses.

The requested zoning amendment to C-1-CO will provide an opportunity for redevelopment to a use that is well suited to fronting on a major roadway, and can be considered compatible with the surrounding land uses and development pattern in the area. The proposed Conditional Overlay would limit utilization of the property to a compound pharmacy, which is a use that can be an asset to the surrounding community. Additional impacts to infrastructure are not anticipated and adequate capacities are available. The proposal is consistent with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan and is appropriate for this location.

 

Background Information:

The Local Planning Agency recommended approval of the request during its July 12, 2018 public hearing (vote 4-0).

In accordance with Section 134-337 of the Pinellas County Land Development Code, mailed notices of the public hearings were provided to property owners (as determined by Pinellas County Property Appraiser records) within 500 feet of the subject property. A sign noticing the public hearings was also posted on the subject property.
