Mr. Pianta introduced the petition. It is recommended that the Planning and Zoning Commission recommend the Board of County Commissioners adopt a resolution approving the petitioner’s request for a Master Plan Revision on property zoned PDP(SF)/Planned Development Project (Single Family) and a Rezoning from AG/(Agricultural) to PDP(SF)/ Planned Development Project (Single Family) with deviations, with the following performance conditions:

1. The petitioner must obtain all permits from Hernando County and other applicable agencies and meet all applicable land development regulations, for either construction or use of the property, and complete all applicable development review processes.

2. The petitioner shall provide a wildlife survey, prepared by a qualified professional prior to any development occurring on the property. Furthermore, copies of any required permits shall be provided prior to the issuance of development permits by Hernando County.

3. Lot Size: 6,250 and 7,500 square feet

Lot Width: 50' and 60'

4. Minimum Building Setbacks:

Perimeter:

County line Road: 125'

North Property line: 20'

East Property line: 20'

West Property line: 20'

Internal Residential Lots:

Front: 25'

Side: 5' (deviation from the required 10')

Rear: 15' (perimeter lots shall be 20')

5. The petitioner shall preserve the minimum required natural vegetation as required by the County’s LDRs.

6. Geotechnical subsurface testing and reporting in accordance with the County’s Facility Design Guidelines shall be conducted for all Drainage Retention Areas (DRA) within the proposed project.

7. The property must apply for and receive a Finding of School Capacity from the School District prior to the approval of the conditional plat or the functional equivalent. The County will only issue a certificate of concurrency for schools upon the School District’s written determination that adequate school capacity will be in place or under actual construction within three (3) years after the issuance of subdivision approval or site plan approval (or functional equivalent) for each level of school without mitigation, or with the execution of a legally binding proportionate share mitigation agreement between the applicant, the School District and the County.

8. Florida Yards & Neighborhoods (FYN) principles shall be used for landscaping within the development.

9. A 20' landscape berm and buffer shall be provided adjacent to Linden Retreats and East Linden Estates

10. The petitioner shall coordinate the signalization of Linden Drive with the County Engineer prior to development.

11. The development shall provide a cross access stub-out for future connection to the west to align with the County owned right-of-way along the rear portion of a commercially zoned parcel, and to the east to align with the frontage road for the Shoppes at Avalon.

12. An updated Traffic Study shall be required in accordance with the requirements of the County Engineer at the time of permitting.

13. The petitioner shall enter into a sewer and water agreement with the Hernando County Utilities Department.

14. The petitioner shall provide a master plan in compliance with all of the performance conditions within 30 calendar days of BCC approval. Failure to submit the revised plan will result in no further development permits being issued.

Donald R. Lacey, representing the petition, under oath, reviewed the master plan via overhead projection. He asked to meet with County Engineering regarding the signalization of Linden Drive under condition #10 as access will be directly from County Line Road.

Under public comment, Edward Parker, under oath, stated he resides along the western boundary of the subject site. He asked for clarification of the required 20' buffer and stated his preference for a fence or natural buffer. He questioned if the development would be a deeded community and if there would be direct access to the Linden Retreat or East Linden Estates subdivisions via an existing cul-de-sac.

Mr. Pianta explained the proposed stub-out near the southwest corner would connect to an existing right-of-way as a reverse frontage road for future access to an undeveloped commercially zoned property further west as outlined under condition #11.

Addressing Mr. Parker’s questions, Mr. Lacey clarified that there would be no access at the northwest corner of the property to an abutting stub-out road and no access to the residential properties along the western boundary. The abutting stub-out road will continue to provide access to the Agricultural property to the north. Regarding the buffering under condition #9, he stated his willingness to work with the adjacent property owner and the county to either leave the 20' buffer in its natural vegetative state, erect a fence, or remove the trees to create a berm. The project would be a deeded community with a homeowner’s association maintaining the roads.

Mr. Lacey responded to questions of the Commission regarding the stub-out requirement referenced under condition #11, the stormwater drainage layout internal of the property, the County Line Road widening along the southern boundary, and the cluster design of residential developments with smaller lot sizes. Mr. Lacey and Mr. Pianta clarified the building setback requirements listed under condition #4. Mr. Lacey and Mr. Martin discussed school concurrency impacts from the project and related impact fees.

Mr. Pianta suggested modifying condition #9 as follows: A 20’ landscape berm and buffer or natural buffer with supplemental trees as required to fill in the gaps shall be provided adjacent to Linden Retreats and East Linden Estates. Mr. Pianta clarified the modified language would not preclude fencing. Mr. Lacey and Mr. Edward Parker agreed with the modified condition.

Motion: A motion was made to recommend approval to the Board of County Commissioners per staff recommendations with the following modification:

9. A 20’ landscape berm and buffer or natural buffer with supplemental trees as required to fill in the gaps shall be provided adjacent to Linden Retreats and East Linden Estates.
