Staff recommends approval of Ordinance 2022-15.


Applicant Greg Beliveau of LPG Urban and Regional Planners, Inc., on behalf of the Douglas A. Hill, Sr. Life Estate, Levon and Sarah Mears, and SK Hammock Oaks LLC is requesting to amend the zoning entitlements of properties located south of County Road 466 and east of Cherry Lake Road, which includes approximately 421 acres within the Town of Lady Lake limits, presently zoned Planned Unit Development (PUD).

The rezoning application was received on Monday, August 29, 2022, and has been reviewed and determined to be complete, satisfying the necessary criteria as required to meet the requirements of the Land Development Regulations as well as the adopted Comprehensive Plan. The application is ready for consideration by the Town Commission.

The property was rezoned PUD Under Ordinance 2021-25 on February 23, 2022. However, discussions that occurred during the second and final reading of the ordinance which pertained to the uses on the property did not get incorporated into the ordinance and subsequently were not recorded with the Lake County Clerk of the Courts. Therefore, the applicant has reapplied to memorialize those entitlements at this time.

The applicant again proposes to develop a mixed-use project consisting of 120,000 square feet of commercial uses, 15,000 square feet of Medical Office, 3,000 square feet of General Office/medical, 940 units of Single Family residential, 330 multi-family apartments, 216 townhome units and 56.3 acres of Parks and Amenities. Under Item 2 of the Memorandum of Agreement, a list of the proposed Commercial Permitted Uses is listed.

The applicant has provided a conceptual plan detailing the layout of the entire development and the uses and densities within the property.

Type Proposal
Single Family Residential 940 units
Multi-Family Apartments 330 units
Townhome 216 units
General Office 3,000 SF
Medical Office 15,000 SF
Commercial 120,000 SF
