THIS PROPERTY CONSISTS OF 3 SEPARATE LOTS. CURRENTLY ZONED AR WITH FUTURE LAND USE OF RES 1, WHICH ALLOWS HOMES, MODULAR HOMES, AND MOBILE HOMES. THIS PROPERTY IS DEVELOP-ABLE, WITH MODIFICATIONS (AS STATED BELOW, PER THE COUNTY). ALL THREE PARCELS CAN BE COMBINED, BY FILING A “UNITY OF TITLE”. TOTALING PARCELS TO 6 AND ALLOWING A DEVELOPER APPROXIMATELY 81 LOTS (MINUS THE COMMON AREAS). PROPERTY CAN BE REZONED, AND UPON APPROVED NEW SITE DEVELOPMENT PLANS, CAN BE DEVELOPED INTO MIN. 1 ACRE TRACTS. AFTER FACTORING IN ROADS AND OTHER NECESSITIES, EACH INDIVIDUAL LOT MIGHT BE JUST UNDER AN ACRE, TO OVER A HALF ACRE, IN SIZE. EACH PARCEL IS ALLOWED A ONE TIME SPLIT. THE SETBACKS ARE: FRONT - 50’ BACK - 50’ AND SIDES - 25’. REQUIRES WELL AND SEPTIC. BELOW ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR REZONING, DEFINED BY THE COUNTY:
The parcels in question could certainly be rezoned to an MPUD (Master Planned Unit Development) to allow the construction of a subdivision with a deviation from the 1 acre lot size in the AR Zoning District. This would allow for the necessary infrastructure (roads, drainage, neighborhood park, etc.). If you want to increase the density over what the Future Land Use (FLU) allows, you would also have to do a Comprehensive Plan Amendment – and there is no guarantee it would be approved due to the rura-lness of the area. An MPUD with no Comp Plan Amendment would allow 1 dwelling unit per acre. After you factor in roads and other necessities, each individual lot might be just under an acre to over a half acre in size. If the subdivision was to employ well/septic rather than connecting to the public water system, each lot would have to be at least one half acre in size per the Florida Dept of Health. The utilities is another factor, of course, and it depends on how far away the closest connection might be to determine if the project would be required to connect or not. It looks like this property is just over 3,500 feet from Shady Hills/Little Ranch intersection. Ideally a connection would be the choice, but it can be quite expensive to run a line that far so it would be up to the folks in our Long Range department to determine if that would be a requirement for this project or not (according to the Comp Plan).
