On July 19, 2021, Scott Miller with Gelcorp came before the Town Commission Conceptual Workshop proposing the construction of the Luxury Condo Garages/Personal Storage at another 26-acre parcel along Hwy 466. After receiving feedback from the Town Commission, the applicant redesigned the proposal for apartments only.

Setbacks will be established at 40 feet along Hwy 27/441 and 20 feet along all other property boundaries. The Project shall be served by the Town's central water and sewer systems, and the Property Owner shall be responsible for the cost of all off-site and on-site installation of water and sewer, as well any other infrastructure improvements necessitated by the impact of the project.
The subject properties lie in Section 28, Township 18 South, Range 24 East, in Lake County, Florida. Appropriate legal descriptions, a location map, and a sketch of the property have been included with the submitted application.
The rezoning application has been reviewed and determined to be complete, satisfying the necessary criteria as required for rezoning.
