Background Discussion

• Mrs. Katie LaBarr, AICP, with Stantec Consulting Services Inc., agent for the property owners, is requesting approval of a revised Zoning Ordinance and General Development Plan for the Northwest Sector Development.
• A companion application to amend the Development Order and Map H to the Northwest Sector DRI (DRI # 26) is being reviewed under a separate application.
• The 1,518.9 ± acre site is generally located east of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, south of 44th Avenue East extension, west of Lorraine Road, and north of S.R. 70.  A 39.3 acre parcel is west of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard. 
• The Northwest Sector DRI and GDP were approved in two phases in November 1, 2007 to allow the following uses:
• 4,422 residential dwelling units (4,072 single family detached and 350 multi-family)
• 200,000 sq. ft. of commercial space;
• 105,000 sq. ft. of office; and
• Golf Course (18 holes)
• Seven amendments of the Northwest Sector GDP have been approved by the BOCC, and the current entitlements are the following: 4,522 residential units (3,833 single-family residences and 689 multi-family units), 200,000 square feet of commercial space, 105,000 square feet of office space, and golf course (18 holes), with an option to exchange land uses for a 120 bed group care home.
• This request includes modifying the GDP and the Zoning Ordinance with the following changes:

        Add 2.3± acres to Parcel B and remove 2.3± acres from Parcel C-3;
? Delete Condition S.2.k.3, regarding a pedestrian access to Parcel B;
? Reallocate acreage to Parcel C-2 from Parcel C-3 (2.5± acres);
? Reallocate acreage and entitlements to Parcel B from Parcel D (2.5± acres and 19,650 square feet of commercial space);
? Reflect the satisfaction of transportation mitigation of impacts of the project through buildout;
? Update the phasing table to reflect legislatively approved extensions; and
? Other amendments for internal consistency.
• The overall density and intensity of the project are not changing with this request.
• Reallocation of acreage and entitlements between parcels will not require traffic related improvements.
• Staff recommends approval of proposed changes.
• On July 13, 2017, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission continued the public hearing to no date set and to be re-advertised.
• On August 3, 2017, by a vote of 6 – 0, the Board of County Commissioners continued the public hearing to no date set and to be re-advertised. Commissioner Smith was absent.
