Summary:

The subject site is designated Residential Urban (RU) and Residential/Office General (R/OG) on the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and is zoned R-4 (2.2 acres) and GO (1.3 acres). The site consists of 2 parcels that are currently vacant.

The owner of the subject site wishes to develop the property with multi-family residential. The requested RM zoning district permits a variety of single-family and multi-family residential uses with varying lot sizes that allow for greater flexibility with design of a subdivision and the potential for increased open space. Additionally, the RU Future Land Use category, which allows up to 7.5 residential units per acre, and the R/OG category, which allows up to 10.0 residential units per acre, are not being amended. Therefore, there is no change in the allowable residential density.

The subject site is adjacent to commercial uses on the north, northwest and east, and single-family homes on the south and southwest. The development pattern in the surrounding area is mostly low to medium density residential with a mixture of single-family detached, townhomes and mobile home residential uses, with commercial uses fronting on Gandy Boulevard. This current case would continue this trend and can be considered consistent and compatible with the surrounding uses. It should be noted that the density allows for a maximum 30 residential units on the subject site based on its developable acreage and subject to site plan review.

Staff is of the opinion that the proposed RM zoning amendment is appropriate for the
subject site. The maximum allowable residential density is not increasing based on no changes to the FLUM. The proposal is consistent with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan and is appropriate for this location.
