A rezoning application has been filed with the Town of Lady Lake by the First Baptist Church of Lady Lake, Inc., requesting the rezoning of one parcel located along West Lady Lake Blvd., addressed as 1241 West Lakeview Street.

The parcel involves rezoning approximately 8.94 acres proposing the following uses:
Broadcasting Facilities, Cemeteries, House of Worship, Educational Institutions, Daycare Centers, Adult Care Facility, Funeral Homes, with or without crematorium, and Church with associated ministries including community outreach, Christian Education, Congregation Meetings, and Worship.
The property features a single family residence (1818 Sq. Ft.), an open-air pavilion (1,200 Sq. Ft.) and a steel structure garage (1,200 Sq. Ft.). First Baptist Church of Lady Lake elaborated that currently and in the future, they do not see any changes to the use of the existing buildings on the property. In a Statement of Purpose, the applicant stated that “A residential home exists on the property that is intended for occasional use by traveling missionaries, visiting ministers and church members in time of distress (e.g. hurricane safety, home construction)”. Further, the 1,200 square-foot covered pavilion is located on the property and is used for barbeques and outdoor gathering by the church, ministries and members. Lastly, there is an additional 1,200 square-foot concrete pad currently used as additional outdoor work area when required which is planned to be developed into a building within the next five years.
