Background Discussion

• Darenda Marvin, AICP, with Grimes, Goebel, et al, agent for the property owner, is requesting approval of revisions to the Zoning Ordinance and General Development Plan (GDP) for the Lakewood Centre Development of Regional Impact (PDMU-06-30(G)(R4)).  The revisions include:

• Introducing light industrial as an allowable land use;
• Providing 250,000 square feet of light industrial entitlements and the reduction of 100,000 square feet of commercial/retail entitlements;
• Update the Phasing and Build-Out dates to reflect previously granted legislative extensions; and
• Update the conditions to reflect compliance with requirements contained therein.

• The Zoning Ordinance and GDP amendment site is part of the Lakewood Centre DRI and is located north of SR 70 East, south of Rangeland Boulevard, east of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, and west of West Eagle Boulevard.

• The Lakewood Centre DRI was originally approved in 2008.  Associated with this Zoning Ordinance and GDP revision, there is an amendment to the future land use category (PA16-06/Ordinance No. 17-01) from ROR (Retail/Office/Residential) to MU (Mixed Use).  This amendment request represents an opportunity to provide additional employment opportunities for regional residents in the areas of industrial, research and development, manufacturing and distribution.
• Roadway networks, utilities and other services exist in the area.

• No native habitat or endangered species are within the project site.

• Staff recommends approval.
