The City has received an application from U.S. Home Corporation dba Lennar (the "Applicant") for a Sketch Plan and Comprehensive Plan Amendment for the property generally located west and south of Fire Station #1 and identified as PID #20-32-25-44-0003 (the "Subject Property"). The Applicant is seeking action on a Comprehensive Plan Amendment now, before incurring significant cost in preparing a Preliminary Plat.
The Sketch Plan is the first of three (3) steps in a Major Plat. No formal action is required on a Sketch Plan. Rather, it provides an opportunity for the Planning Commission to provide feedback to the applicant prior to the drafting of more detailed plans required at the Preliminary Plat (2nd step) and Final Plat (3rd step).
The Subject Property is guided as High Density Residential in the 2040 Comprehensive Plan. This designation requires a density range between eight (8) and fifteen (15) units per acre. The Applicant has applied for a Comprehensive Plan Amendment to re-guide the Subject Property from HDR to Medium Density Residential (MDR), which allows a density range of four (4) to eight (8) units per acre.
