Staff recommends approval of the Water Oak Country Club Estates - New Maintenance Building MJM 09/21-001 Major Modification to Site Plan.


On Monday, August 30, 2021, Town Staff received a New Major Site Plan application and plans submitted by Daniel R. Gibbs with ATWELL Inc ., in representation of property owner, Sun Communities Finance LP, for the Water Oak Country Club Estates Site as per Town of Lady Lake Land Development Regulations, Chapter 7, Section 7-11.

The main project scope of work consists of the construction of a 2,480-square-foot Maintenance Building featuring eight parking spaces, construction of a 1364-square-foot Covered Area adjacent to the Maintenance Building, building of three proposed material storage bays, and dumpster.

The property is zoned “Manufactured Housing up to 9 dwelling units per acres” (MH-9) and the Future Land Use is Manufactured Home High Density (MH-HD) which allows for the proposed land uses and improvements and is compatible and consistent with the Town’s Comprehensive Plan.


The project area is approximately 2.47 acres of which approximately .93 acres is proposed to be impervious surface area with the other 1.54 acres remaining as open space.

The applicant proposes to demolish and remove a 4,163-square-foot metal building and construct a new 2,480-square-foot maintenance facility building approximately 15’-0” in height. The new maintenance building features a 22 feet by 62 feet covered area off the building rear, and the building will connect to a Sanitary Grinder Pump and 2-inch new force main.

The improvements also include the paved cart path extension of Orange Boulevard consisting of approximately 750 linear feet in length and 20 feet in width of asphalt. Underground utilities include the construction of approximately 750 linear feet of 8-inch PVC water main, 175 linear feet of 6-inch PVC water main, and 980 linear feet of 2-inch force main. Other improvements are eight parking spaces, including a concrete paved ADA Florida Accessible parking space in front of the building, a new fire hydrant by the entrance of the maintenance building, and some site landscaping.

The site plan was reviewed to determine if it is in compliance with the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) including drainage, grading, erosion control, and utilities. The application was determined to be in compliance with the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) and the Comprehensive Plan.

The civil engineering site plans, consisting of nine sheets, have been submitted on 24” x 36” sheets and certified by Daniel R. Gibbs, Professional Engineer with ATWELL Inc., drawn on August 23, 2021, with final revisions dated January 27, 2022.
