Background Discussion

• On 12/01/2015, the Board of County Commissioners authorized a County-initiated amendment to the Future Land Use Map (small scale map amendment) for the Knights Inn site from the existing future land use category of IL (Industrial – Light) to R/O/R  (Retail/Office/Residential).

• The Plan Amendment site contains approximately ±7.38 acres located on the east side of 1st Street East (aka US 41/US 301).

• The IL (Industrial – Light) future land use designation was impressed on several parcels along 1st Street East with the adoption of the 1989 Comprehensive Plan. Since then, certain parcels have amended the IL designation to R/O/R (Retail/Office/Residential) [Red Barn Flea Market] and P/SP(2) (Public/Semi Public) [Oasis Middle School – fka P.A.L.]. There are a few parcels remaining with the IL designation, Knights Inn site being one of them.

• The site is located within the Urban Core, the Urban Service Area, and the Southwest Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district in which redevelopment and revitalization have been encouraged to continue the vitality and economic prosperity of these areas. Additionally, staff is preparing amendments to the Land Development Code for Urban Corridors that would provide an increase in density and intensity for parcels along specific urban corridors including 1st Street East (amendments that are expected to go before the Board of County Commissioners by the third quarter of 2016).

• The area is served by utilities, county schools, roadway network, libraries, fire and public safety.  

• There are no jurisdictional wetlands, native habitat nor endangered species on the project site. 

• Staff recommends approval.
