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;
• Reduction of 100,000 square feet of retail entitlements;
• Entitle 250,000 square feet of light industrial entitlements;
• Update parcel total for land uses based upon prior internal transfers among parcels;
• Update the Phasing and Build-Out dates to reflect previously granted legislative extensions;
• Amend stipulations to facilitate these changes; and
• Modify certain conditions consistent with current department practices and other amendments for internal consistency.
• The Zoning Ordinance and GDP amendment site is part of the Lakewood Centre DRI southern portion is generally located north of State Road 70 East, south of Malachite Drive, East of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard, and west of White Eagle Boulevard and the northern portion is generally located north of 44th Avenue East, south of SR 64 East, east of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard and west of White 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 (PA-16-06/Ordinance No. 17-14) 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.

• Staff recommends approval.
