Applicants and property owners Ricardo J. Palacios and Francis M.

The property consists of two lots, involving approximately 0.46 acres in Section 28, Township 18 South, Range 24 East, in Lake County, Florida.
The Future Land Use Map designation for the lots is MH-HD (Manufactured Home High Density), and the lots are zoned “MH-9”, up to nine dwelling units per acre.
As part of the easement vacation application, the Utility Review Form for vacation of an easement was submitted to the local utility companies, and responses were received.
Please see comments below pertaining to whether the utility companies have utilities on site, whether they would approve the easement vacation to move forward, and whether the easement vacation would interfere with use of the easement in terms of maintenance and operation of their utility services.
