There are also 2 requests for Specific Approval to 1) allow a reduction to roadway buffers from 50 to 30 feet and 2) to allow a single tenant/user for a building greater than 75,000 square feet. 

• The site is located at the northeast and northwest corners of US 301 and Harrison Ranch Boulevard, in Parrish.
