• The Agent, Marla Hough of Hough Engineering, Inc., requests approval of a rezone for three adjacent properties totaling 2.66± acres from PR-M and A-1 to PDR and approval of a General Development Plan for 24 multifamily units.

• The site is in the R/O/R FLUC. 
• Special Approval is required for projects in the R/O/R FLUC exceeding a gross density of 6 dwelling units per acre and a net density exceeding 9 dwelling units per acre.  The proposed design has a gross density of 9.0 dwelling units per acre and a net density of 12.9 dwelling units per acre.
•  Special Approval is also required for projects in the Entranceway.  The projects site is in the SR64 at I75 Entranceway.

• Specific Approval is requested for an alternative to section 1005.3 of the LDC to allow for 1.6 parking spaces per dwelling unit, and an alternative to LDC Section 402.7.D.1 to allow a 10’ roadway buffer along the west project boundary adjacent to the 65th Street East.
