Background Discussion

Current Request

• This request is to (1.) add single family semi-detached units to the list of approved uses; (2.) modify building setbacks for cottage units and add dimensional standards for single family semi-detached units; and (3.) amend front yard setbacks for single family detached and semi-detached units to allow for a 20’ front yard setback for side-loaded garages and 25’ setback for standard garages.

• The applicant also requests Specific Approval from LDC Section 201 regarding alley width requirements, so they can provide for 16’ wide one-way alleys and 22’ wide two-way alleys for the cottage units.

• This 263.35+ acre site is located on the south side of US 301, at the northwest corner of Old Tampa Road and Chin Road. 

• The first public hearing for the LDA was held on March 7, 2013.  Residents of River Woods shared concerns regarding stormwater runoff, recreation amenities, and traffic impacts to Old Tampa Road.  Staff met with the residents immediately after the public hearing to discuss their concerns.  Staff and the applicant’s representatives also met with the President and Treasurer of River Woods Homeowners Association on March 21 to discuss their concerns in detail. 


• On June 3, 2010, this site was rezoned from General Agriculture/North Central Overlay (A/NCO) to Planned Development Residential, retaining the North Central Overlay.  A Preliminary Site Plan was approved for 713 single-family residential lots.

• At the same hearing, a Local Development Agreement was approved, providing for the dedication of right-of-way, Proportionate Fair Share Mitigation for concurrency impacts, and an extended CLOS.  To date, a CLOS has not yet been issued for this project.

• On March 13, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners approved a General Development Plan for 732 single family detached lots.

• A revised Local Development Agreement was approved at the same hearing.  The revised LDA provides for a CLOS expiration date of eight years from the date of issuance of the CLOS for public facilities and services including transportation, recreation/open space, solid waste and stormwater.  The CLOS approval shall not extend beyond June 10, 2023.

Staff Recommendation

• The proposed setbacks for the cottage units are consistent with setbacks that have been approved in other residential subdivisions like River Sound, Forest Creek, and Woodbrook and the proposed front yard setbacks are consistent with the Land Development Code.

• Staff recommends approval.
