1. Ordinance 2022-05 — Small Scale Future Land Use Comprehensive Plan Amendment — Smith- Anderson — Change the future land use designation from Lake County Urban Low Density to Lady Lake Single Family Medium Density for property owned by William Mason Anderson and Alfreida Anderson and Carl A. Smith Trustee of the Carl A. Smith Family Trust; being approximately 24.75 acres; Referenced by Alternate Key Numbers 3907338, 1283264, and 1283329, within Lake County, Florida. (Thad Carroll)

Growth Management Director Carroll summarized the application. Charles C. Hiott, on behalf of the owners, applied to amend the Future Land Use designation of 24.75 acres into the Town’s Comprehensive Plan Map. The request is to change the property from Lake County Urban Low Density to Lady Lake Single Family Medium Density. Mr. Carroll explained the future and proposed land use. The Statement of Need indicated that the proposed mix of single-family residences and townhomes is a much-needed housing product in the area. The impact on town services including schools and transportation was also summarized.

This will be discussed further at the 6:00 pm regular Commission meeting but the Local Planning Agency meeting is necessary for the comprehensive plan portion of the project.

Member Freeman said there was discussion about sinking a well for irrigation. The Town has utility lines running right by the property so why are they not using reclaimed water. Mr. Carroll responded that if reclaimed water is available, they will tie into our reuse line. In some instances, what we allow is for a supplemental well depending on capacity. It would be more of an augmentation well.

Member Freeman made a motion forward Ordinance 2022-05 to the Town Commission; Member Holden seconded. Motion carried 4-0.



There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 5:54 p.m.
