2. Ordinance 2022-15 — An Ordinance Amending the Zoning Classification for Certain Property Being Approximately 421 Acres Owned by SK Hammock Oaks LLC, Douglas A. Hill, Sr. Life Estate, and Levon and Sarah Mears; Referenced by Alternate Key Numbers 1279810, 3325451, 1279801, 1770700, 1279828, 1279780, 1279763, 1770670, 1770661, 1771498, and 1770653; Located south of County Road 466, north of Lake Ella Road, and East of Cherry Lake Road in Lake County, Florida; Amending the Current Entitlements of the Planned Unit Development (PUD) Memorandum of Agreement.

Senior Planner Wendy Then summarized the request to amend zoning entitlements for 421 acres within the town limits and which is presently zoned Planned Unit Development. The property was rezoned PUD with the adoption of Ordinance 2021-25 in February 2022. However, discussions at the second and final hearing pertaining to the uses of the property did not get incorporated into the ordinance and are therefore not recorded.  No additional uses or density changes are being proposed. The applicant would like to memorialize the current entitlements. The Memorandum of Agreement spells out permitted uses, uses permitted as Special Exception Use and prohibited uses.

Member Saunders asked if there was any feedback from the mailings to surrounding properties.  Growth Management Director Carroll said there were no phone calls or written communications.

Member Saunders made a motion to forward Ordinance 2022-15 to the Town Commission with the recommendation of approval; Member Pressley seconded the motion. The motion passed by the following roll call vote:
