Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends approval of Ordinance 2018-50.
Agent: Paul Spoltore with First Baptist Church of Lady Lake
Property Owner: First Baptist of Lady Lake, Inc.
Parcel Number: 20-18-24-1100-000-01300
The site is located along West Lady Lake Blvd., addressed as 1241 West Lakeview Street, just south the existing First Baptist Church of Lady Lake site and the Sabal Palm Self-Storage Facility, approximately 1,300 lineal feet east of the intersection of Rolling Acres Road and West Lady Lake Blvd., in Section 20, Township 18 South, Range 24 East in Lake County.
EXISTING AND PROPOSED FLU FOR THE SITE
EXISTING FUTURE LAND USE DEFINITION: Urban Low Density Future Land Use Category.
The Urban Low Density Future Land Use Category provides for a range of residential development at a maximum density of four dwelling units per net buildable acre in addition to civic, commercial, and office uses at an appropriate scale and intensity to serve this category. Limited light industrial uses may only be allowed as a conditional use, unless permitted as an Economic Development Overlay District use. This category shall be located on or in proximity to collector or arterial roadways to minimize traffic on local streets and provide convenient access to transit facilities. Within this category any residential development in excess of 10 dwelling units shall be required to provide a minimum 25% of the net buildable area of the entire site as common open space. The maximum intensity in this category shall be 0.25, except for civic uses and Economic Development Overlay District uses, which shall be 0.35. The maximum Impervious Surface Ratio shall be 0.60.
PROPOSED FUTURE LAND USE DEFINITION: Religious Facilities (RF).
The Religious Facility Land Use Category is intended to permit the development of churches and other houses of worship. The floor area ratio (FAR) shall be limited to a maximum of 0.60 for the Religious Facilities category.
In a statement of Purpose, the applicant stated that “although no formal decision has been made, there is discussion of using a portion of the property no to exceed 1.62 in acres as an Athletic Field (either a smaller 5,000 square foot area or larger 71,000 square foot area). This would support activities in the All-Purpose/Gymnasium building, and any re-established Christian school. Design, funding and permitting would likely place construction completion in the Short-term timeframe of 5 to 10 years forecast.”
The site consists of an 8.94-acre parcel that is partially developed. The property exhibits a Single Family Residence (1818 SF) that was built on 1975, an Open-Air Pavilion (1,200 Sq. Ft.) and a Steel Structure Garage (1,200 SF).
The general vicinity currently exhibits a mix of agricultural, residential and commercial tracts as the area is transitioning from a rural, agriculture character to an urban setting and development proposals continue to increase along the Highway 466 corridor. The proposed Public Facilities District (PFD) Zoning Designation will assure consistency and compatibility with on-site and adjacent land uses and the Town’s Land Development Regulations by addressing design and development guidelines via a Memorandum of Agreement outlining terms pertaining to permitted land uses, hours of operation, landscaping buffering, and other elements in conjunction with the corresponding overall site development and projected growth in accordance with the First Baptist Church’s future plans.
ADJACENT PROPERTY CHARACTERISTICS
To the West: Vacant Commercial Property with a Future Land Use of Lady Lake Multi-Family Low Rise (MF-LR)
To the East: Vacant Residential Property with a Future Land Use of Lake County Low Urban Density.
To the North: The First Baptist Church Site and the Sabal Palm Plaza. The First Baptist Church has a Future Land Use of Religious Facilities and the Sabal Palm Plaza Site has a Future Land Use of Commercial General – Retail Sales and Services (RET).
To the South: Single Family Residence with a Future Land Use of Lake County Low Urban Density.
IMPACT ON TOWN SERVICES
In evaluating land use impacts, the maximum theoretical impact that could result through passage of the amendment is in direct relation with Church and associated ministries including community outreach, Christian Education, Congregation Meetings, and Worship.
The 8.94-acre parcel is presently zoned Agriculture (A) in Lake County, which permits development at maximum of four dwelling units per net buildable acre or civic uses at an intensity of .35 FAR. The applicant is requesting to change the current Lake County Agriculture to Lady Lake Public Facilities District.
The Town of Lady Lake does not currently service the property Potable Water and a well supplies water. There are no expected changes on this piece of property at this time that will require additional demand of service.
The Town of Lady Lake Waste Water Sewer Facilities does not currently service the property with Waste Water Sewer Facilities; therefore, a Septic Tank System provides for Waste Disposal. There are no expected changes on the property at this time that will require additional demand of service.
The Town of Lady Lake Waste Water Sewer Facilities does not currently service the property with Reuse/Reclaim Facilities. There is no additional need for such facilities at this time.
The local roadways that will be affected by this project are mostly County Maintained Roads with the exception of portions of West Lady Lake Blvd. However, it is expected that a development will not be built at the location for the next few years; at which point a Traffic Impact Analysis will be required at the time of site plan submittal. Based on either build-out, there is low impact to the local road system.
