On Monday, October 3, 2022, applications have been filed with the Town of Lady Lake by Shridhar Rao on behalf of property owner Nitai Capital Partners Edwards, LLC, to annex property consisting of one vacant parcel located approximately three-quarters of a mile east of the intersection of Edwards Road and South Highway 27/441, along the north side of Edwards Road. The application involves annexing approximately 31.10 acres from unincorporated Lake County into the Town of Lady Lake. The parcel is vacant, and its existing condition is unimproved and heavily wooded.
The subject property is in Section 22, Township 18 South, Range 24 East, in Lake County, Florida. The appropriate legal description, a location map, and a sketch of the property was included with the submitted application. The parcel will be served by the Town’s Water, Sewer and Reuse facilities, which would require annexation at some point upon connection to Town’s utilities. The subject property is contiguous with the existing municipal boundary with parcels located across the street and south of Edwards Road.
The annexation application has been reviewed and determined to be complete. The application meets the requirements of the Land Development Regulations (LDRs) as well as the adopted Comprehensive Plan and is ready for a recommendation by the Planning and Zoning Board.
Staff mailed notices to inform the surrounding nine property owners within 150 feet of the property proposed by the annexation request were mailed on Thursday, October 27, 2022. The property was also posted Thursday, October 27, 2022.
