Ordinance 2019-02 (First Reading) — Ricardo J. Palacios and Francis M. Burgado Santiago – Rezoning request from Lady Lake Heavy Commercial (HC) to Lady Lake Manufactured Homes High Density (MH-9) for property being approximately .46 acres of land owned by Ricardo J. Palacios and Francis M. Burgado Santiago, along Skyline Drive, referenced by alternate key 3793915, Lots 23 and 24 of Block B of the Skyline Hills Subdivision, within the Town limits of Lady Lake, Florida
Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends approval of Ordinance No. 2019-02.
A rezoning application has been filed with the Town of Lady Lake by Ricardo J. Palacios and Francis M. Burgado Santiago, requesting the rezoning of one parcel located along Skyline Drive, encompassing Lots 23 and 24 of Block B of the Skyline Hills Subdivision, just behind the existing Microtel site and across from the Ehlers Office Complex.
The request involves proposing the following uses on the .46-acre parcel:
The rezoning request is to re-designate the zoning classification from Heavy Commercial (HC) to Manufactured Homes High Density (MH-9).
The applicant is a veteran who recently received a home loan to purchase the parcel and install a 32’x68’ manufactured home on it. On Thursday, February 21, 2019, Mr. Palacios came into the office of the Town’s Building Department to find out the status of his building permit. At that time, he learned that no building permit application has been received by the department. Further, it was found that the zoning and future land use of the purchased parcel was not in compliance with the proposal to install a manufactured home. As a result, Mr. Palacios was given the option to find another suitable site on which to place the manufactured home or proceed with rezoning and small-scale future land use map amendment applications. In light of the legalities, timeframe, and costs associated with finding another lot when Mr. Palacios’ home loan already involves the subject parcel, Mr. Palacios and Ms. Burgado Santiago opted to proceed with the latter.

To the east: Hotel site with a zoning district designation of Lady Lake Heavy Commercial (HC).

To the south: Single family residence with a zoning district designation of Lady Lake Residential Professional (RP).
The rezoning application was received on Thursday, February 21, 2019, and has been reviewed and determined to be complete, satisfying the necessary criteria as required for annexation under statutory requirements. A small-scale future land use comprehensive plan amendment has been submitted concurrently for the parcel.
