- Rezone of approximately 1,129.19 acres from A/NCO (General Agriculture/North Central Overlay District) to PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use) retaining the North Central Overlay District, and
- General Development Plan (GDP) for 2,400 residential units (single-family detached, single-family semi-detached, and single-family attached), as well as 300,000 square feet of commercial space.

• The vacant site is located at the southwest corner of Buckeye Road and US 301 North. Specifically, the site has frontage along Buckeye Road and US 301 (approximately 3 miles and 6,600 feet, respectively), and will be traversed (south to north) by the alignment of future Fort Hamer Road (functional classified roadways). The entire site is within the UF-3 (Urban Fringe-3) FLUC (Future Land Use Category).

• The General Development Plan (Large Project application) proposes:

- A planned mixed-use development (residential community and commercial area) including main access points along future Fort Hamer Road (4 access points), Buckeye Road (6 access points), and US 301 (3 access points). Secondary access points will be determined at PSP/FSP stage.
- Internal streets will be either public, owned and maintained by a CDD, or private. The GDP shows 50-feet wide typical R-O-W section for internal local streets (2-lanes and 24 feet pavement width), and 84-feet wide R-O-W section for divided entrance streets (2-lane divided roadways – Roads “Y” and “SS”) and spine road (Road “A”).  The project design incorporates the required right-of-way section of planned future thoroughfares (120-feet wide R-O-W section for Fort Hamer Road).

- A Schedule of Permitted and Prohibited Uses (voluntarily proffered by the Applicant and attached as Exhibit “B” to the Ordinance) has been proposed to list permitted and prohibited uses within the project.
- 50 feet wide roadway buffer along U.S. 301, Ft. Hamer Road, and Buckeye Road adjacent to residential development except when the thoroughfares are adjacent to stormwater ponds where a variable width buffer is proposed, 25 feet wide roadway buffer along U.S. 301, Ft. Hamer Road, and Buckeye Road adjacent to commercial development, and 20 feet wide greenbelt buffer along south and west boundaries in compliance with regulations of the North Central Overlay District. A 30-foot wide wetland buffer will be provided except under limited circumstances where a variable width wetland buffer is requested to be approved via Specific Approval.

- 5-foot sidewalks will be provided both sides of the Future Fort Hamer (thoroughfare road), as well as along one side of Buckeye Road, US 301, and the local roadways in accordance with Section 1001.6. 
- 56% of the site is designated as open space (637.16 acres), exceeding the minimum requirement for a Planned Development project (25% for residential, and 20% for non-residential equivalent to 279.34 acres). A minimum of 10.68 acres will be designated for the location of recreational areas (details of proposed amenities will be defined at FSP stage).
- The project will be developed in ten (10) phases over the course of ten (10) years with 240 units in each phase. Phasing and timing of units is subject to change without exceed the maximum number of approved units.

Wastewater treatment will be provided by the North Regional Wastewater Treatment Facility via on-site and off-site force mains. A Force Main will be extended from Carter Road along the north side of Buckeye Road.  There is available capacity to support future demand of potable water and treatment of wastewater.
