Staff Recommended Motion
Growth Management staff recommends approval of the first reading of Ordinance 2021-07
On April 1, 2021, applicant Greg Beliveau of LPG Urban and Regional Planners, filed an application on behalf of North Lake Presbyterian Church to rezone property being approximately 8.47 acres in the Town of Lady Lake. The request is to change the property from Lake County Rural Residential (R-1), Lake County Community Commercial (C-2) and Town of Lady Lake Single-Family Low Density Residential (RS-3) and Lady Lake Planned Commercial (CP) to Town of Lady Lake Planned Commercial (CP).
On August 3, 2015, Phillip and Donna Willman came before the Town Commission seeking approval to rezone property being approximately three acres located on County Road 25 (Teague Trail) just south of Griffin Avenue within the Town of Lady Lake. Under Ordinance 2015-02, the property was rezoned to Planned Commercial (CP), and the following uses were established as permitted uses: retail sales and services, offices, office/warehouse facilities, contractor’s office, mini-storage warehouse, and motor vehicle, recreational vehicle, and boat storage facilities.
The applicant would like to use the current entitlements of the Memorandum of Agreement which governs the property under Ordinance 2015-02. They are proposing to construct storage units which can remain unfinished as one would normally find in a storage facility; or, they can be finished in a manner as to operate as a small office or storefront. Mr. Beliveau has included a conceptual layout of the property detailing the locations of the buildings on the property. The conceptual layout proposes driveway connections to County Road 25 as well as Griffin Avenue.
