Staff Recommended Motion
Staff recommends approval of the first reading of Ordinance 2020-04.
On Monday, May 4, 2020, David Springstead filed an application on behalf of Elijah Bailey, property owner, to amend the zoning entitlements for approximately 40.44 acres of property located in the Town of Lady Lake, Florida. The property is currently zoned Planned Unit Development (PUD) and has entitlements for land uses as adopted by Ordinance 2015-11.
At this time, the applicant has requested to amend the uses granted under Ordinance 2015-11, providing a limited number of specific uses, and to reduce the footprint of development by 9.90 acres. Under the proposed Ordinance 2020-04, the following uses have been requested as outlined in the Memorandum of Agreement.
Permitted Uses: Those uses permitted by the Town’s Land Development Regulations consistent with a PUD, Commercial zoning and High-Density Residential zoning as follows:
- Professional/Business Offices
- Medical Offices/Clinic
- Commercial/Retail Sales Business
- Restaurants (without drive-through window)
- Health/Exercise Club/Spa
The maximum number of residential units consisting of condominiums within the development will not exceed 500 units.
The conceptual plan indicates that seven buildings will be constructed at a height of five floors for the condominiums, with building number one containing commercial uses on the first floor. Two buildings, each being 6,000 square feet, have been proposed as restaurants. A five-story hotel has also been proposed on the plan, as well as a one-story community pool and recreation center.
The subject properties lie in Section 28, Township 18 South, Range 24 East, in Lake County, Florida. Appropriate legal descriptions and survey information have been included with the submitted application. The zoning designation of the subject properties and adjacent properties are as follows:
|Lady Lake Heavy Commercial
|Lady Lake Heavy Commercial
|Lady Lake Planned Unit Development
|Lady Lake Single Family 6 Dwelling Units per Acre
The Rezoning application was received on Monday, May 4, 2020, and has been reviewed and determined to be complete, satisfying the necessary criteria as required to meet the requirements of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) as well as the adopted Comprehensive Plan, and is ready for consideration by the Town Commission.
Notices to inform the surrounding 19 property owners within 150 feet of the property proposed by the rezoning request were mailed Thursday, May 21, 2020. The properties were posted on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

At the June 8, 2020 meeting, the Planning and Zoning Board voted 3 to 0 to forward Ordinance 2020-04 to the Town Commission with the recommendation of approval.
