Summary:

The subject property is designated Residential Low (RL) on the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and is zoned R-R, Rural Residential. The site is currently vacant.

The applicant is proposing to develop the property with single family homes. Under the existing R-R zoning, five single-family homes could potentially be developed. The requested R-3 district allows for smaller lot sizes (6,000 sq. ft.) than the R-R district (16,000 sq. ft.). Under the proposed R-3 zoning and based on the property acreage, 10 single-family homes could potentially be developed, subject to site plan review. Importantly, the RL land use is not changing, keeping the maximum allowable residential density as identified by the Comprehensive Plan the same.

The subject property is adjacent to a commercial shopping center and office building on the east, a church on the north, single-family residences and a preschool on the west, and a single-family subdivision to the south across Tampa Road. A number of the nearby properties along Riviere Road to the north and west of the site have over time transitioned from larger lot single family residential sites to institutional uses. The proposed R-3 zoning can be considered compatible with the surrounding uses and development pattern. Staff believes that the proposal is consistent with the Comprehensive Plan and is appropriate for this location.

 

Background Information:

The Local Planning Agency (LPA) recommended approval of the request during its September 13, 2018 public hearing (Vote 6-0).

Surrounding property owners within 400 feet of the subject property were notified by mail. A sign advertising the public hearings was also posted on the subject property.
