Background Discussion
  • SLD- Sarasota LP (Joseph H. Harman) and Bonus Properties, Inc. has filed a Preliminary Site Plan application for commercial development on approximately 2.08 + acres zoned PDC (Planned Development\Commercial) on the northeast corner of U.S. 41 and Pearl Avenue, to develop the two parcels with commercial uses; Parcel “A” to be developed with a 7,250 square foot building, allowing the use to be General Retail Sales; Professional Offices; Banks, with or without Drive-Thru; Restaurants, with or without Drive Thru; Personal Service Establishments; and Parcel “B” to be developed with a 4,400 square foot convenience store with 8 gas pumps (with 16 fueling stations and a 4,720 foot dispenser).  The 2.08 acre site is located at the northeast corner of U.S. 41 and Pearl Avenue;


  • The site is designated R/O/R (Retail/Office/Residential) on the Future Land Use Map.  The property is also located Whitfield Residential Overlay; the Historical and Archaeological Overlay District; and Airport Impact Overlay District;


  • Since Planning Commission, the applicant has coordinated with the neighboring property owners to work out language that would address their concerns.  The revised language is shown in strike-through/underline below.  This language, originally submitted by a concerned neighbor, was reviewed by the applicant, is accepted by staff.  Staff believes that it does not represent language that would require the application to go back to the Planning Commission for consideration;


  • The site is in an “A-1” Flood Zone, and in the Bowless Creek Flood Insurance Study Profile area;


  • Water and Sanitary Sewer will be provided;


  • Staff recommends approval with stipulations,


  • On May 9, 2013, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval; and


  • A summary of the public comments heard at the May 9, 2013 Planning Commission public hearing is in the staff report attached to this memo.
