Summary:

The subject property consists of vacant portions of three parcels totaling 4.7 acres located at the northeast corner of 62nd Avenue North and 68th Street North in unincorporated Pinellas Park. The areas of the parcels that are not included as part of this amendment contain 19 mobile homes. The amendment area is designated Residential Low (RL) on the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and zoned R-6 (Residential Mobile Home Parks & Subdivision).

The applicant is proposing to develop the subject property with a mixture of single-family detached and duplex/single-family attached homes, which will require changes to the FLUM and Zoning Atlas. A FLUM amendment to Residential Low Medium (RLM) and a zoning change to R-5, Urban Residential are proposed. The requested R-5 district has a minimum lot size of 3,000 square feet with no minimum lot width and depth requirements, which provides design flexibility for infill and redevelopment situations such as this. The requested land use change would increase maximum Plan density from five units per acre to 10 units per acre. The amendments would allow for the proposed density of this infill development to take place on the original 4,000 square foot lots-of-record that were platted in 1925 prior to the establishment of the zoning code.

The subject property is adjacent to an elementary school on the north, single-family homes on the east and south, and a Florida Highway Patrol station on the west. In the middle of the amendment area are 19 mobile homes (which are remaining) that are part of the platted subdivision but not part of this amendment.

Staff is of the opinion that the proposed RLM FLUM and R-5 zoning designations will provide enhanced flexibility for creative site development and are appropriate based on the proposed use, density, and general compatibility with the surrounding area and consistency with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan.

 

Background Information:
