Background Discussion

• Ms. Patricia Petruff, Esq.; Dye, Deitrich, Petruff & St. Paul, P.L., agent for the property owner, is requesting approval of a Large Scale Map Amendment from the existing future land use category of UF-3 (Urban Fringe, 3 dwelling units per acre) to RES-6 (Residential, 6 dwelling units per acre).

• The Plan Amendment site is approximately ±59.68 acres generally located on the south side of Moccasin Wallow Road, approximately 1.75 miles east of the I-75/Moccasin Wallow Road interchange in Parrish. 

• There are several existing mixed use and residential areas within close proximity to the amendment site.  These projects include: Robinson Gateway DRI, a mixed use project locate generally northwest of the subject property; Eagle Pointe and Summer Woods, residential projects generally located north and east of the subject property, respectively; and Villages of Amazon South, a mixed use project located to the east of the subject property.

• In addition to the existing approvals, the subject property’s western and southern boundaries abut the Parrish Lakes DRI property. While the Parrish Lakes DRI has not been formally approved, the property was subject to a comprehensive plan amendment which changed the FLUC of the property from UF-3 (Urban Fringe, 3 dwelling units per gross acre) to MU (Mixed Use).

• 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.
