Background Discussion

1. Caleb Grimes, Esquire, of Grimes Goebel, et al, agent for the owner, is requesting approval of an amended Preliminary Site Plan and stipulations previously approved by Ordinance No. PDMU/PDC-98-04(P)(R4).  The modifications include:
• reducing the Phase 2 residential lot width from 70’ wide (minimum 8400 SF) to 50’ wide (minimum 6000 SF);
• reducing the Phase 2 residential side yard setback from 7.5’ to 5’,
• increasing the number of Phase 2 residential lots from 52 lots to 65 lots and the total number of project residential lots from 104 to 117 lots,
• revising the industrial lot access to be located within the property owner’s project boundaries, and
• revising several of the existing project stipulations to more accurately reflect existing conditions and/or current County standards and policies.
2. The 197.02± acre project is generally located south of Moccasin Wallow Road and west of I-75, extending south to I-275 .  The project is within the MU (Mixed Use) FLUC.  MU allows consideration of the development types provided within the Woods of Moccasin Wallow – residential, commercial, industrial and residential support uses.

3. The proposed project gross density is 1.56 du/ac and the net density is 4.09 du/ac.  Both of these densities are well below the maximum gross density of 9 du/ac and the maximum net density of 20 du/ac that is contemplated in the MU Future Land Use Category.

4. Special Approvals
• Project within the Entranceway
• Non-residential uses exceeding 150,000 square feet
• Adjacent to a Perennial Stream (Cabbage Slough)
• Mixed Use Future Land Use Category.
 Each of these Special Approvals were approved with the previous application and the  proposed revisions do not affect staff support of  these Special Approval requests.
5. The project provides 81.16 acres of open space (41%); exceeding the 30% requirement for projects located within the Entranceway.

6. Project access is from Moccasin Wallow Road.

7. On January 15, 2015, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
