Summary:

Summary

The subject property is approximately 0.31 acre located at 8226 46th Avenue North in west Lealman. The property is designated R/OG on the FLUM, and it is zoned R-4, One (1) , Two (2) , & Three (3) Family Residential. It currently contains a single-family home. The applicant wishes to have ability to utilize the property for general office purposes, however, the existing R-4 zoning does not allow offices as a primary use. A zoning amendment to GO is therefore proposed, which would allow a range of office uses (e.g., general office, medical office, veterinary office, etc.) and is consistent with the R/OG FLUM category. No specific type of office is proposed at this time.

The subject property is located approximately 315 feet east of the intersection of 46th Avenue North and Park Street. It is within an area that contains a mix of uses and zoning districts. Park Street is an arterial roadway with primarily commercial uses fronting it within this general location, and 46th Avenue North is a collector with a combination of commercial, office and residential uses in the vicinity. There are heavy commercial uses to the north of the subject property across 46th Avenue North, including auto repair and warehouse businesses. To the west are single family homes, some of which are nonconforming with their C-2 commercial zoning district. Single family homes are also to the south and east of the subject property. These homes are within a broader area on the south side of 46th Avenue North covered by the R/OG land use category, signaling an appropriateness for both residential and office uses.
                     
In summary, the GO zoning would provide for office uses that are compatible with the surrounding development pattern and the change would maintain compatibility with the FLUM. In general, the proposal is consistent with the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan and is appropriate for this location.
