Background Discussion

• Rachel Layton, AICP, with ZNS Engineering, agent for Neal Communities of Southwest Florida, LLC (owner), is requesting approval of a rezone from A-1/CHHA/CEA (Agricultural Suburban/Coastal High Hazard Area/Coastal Evacuation Area) to PDR/CHHA/CEA (Planned Development Residential/Coastal High Hazard Area/Coastal Evacuation Area) for a ±19.6 acre property located on the south side of 17th Avenue NW, east of 99th Street NW.

• The request includes an associated Preliminary Site Plan for a 38 lot, single family residential subdivision.

• The requested PD-R zoning is consistent with the existing development pattern and zoning of nearby properties and is a logical extension of the residential development pattern.

• This property has a D.5 – Specific Property-Development Condition (D.5.16 in the Comprehensive Plan), which limits the property to a maximum of 38 residential units.

• The RES-3 FLUC provides for a maximum gross residential density of 2.0 du/ac unless a Special Approval is applied for (which requires a rezone to Planned Development), The proposed density is 1.94 du/ac. 

• The project is requesting 2 Special Approvals

      1. To allow a project in the Coastal Evacuation Area (CEA)
      2. To allow a project in the Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA)

• The project is requesting 2 Specific Approvals

      1. From Section 402.7.D.7 to reduce the required front yard setback from 25 feet to 23 feet.
      2. From Section 1005.3, Table 10.2 – Parking Rations,, to allow for the parking requirement of 1 parking space for the Private Neighborhood Park to be waived.

• Staff recommends Approval with Stipulations.    

• On August 11, 2016, by a vote of 6 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
