Requested Action:

Recommendation

It is requested that the Local Planning Agency conduct a public hearing to consider a change of Future Land Use designation from RES 1 (Residential 1) to RES 4 (Residential 4).

End

Summary Explanation and Background:

The applicant is seeking to amend the Future Land Use designation on 24 acres of land from RES 1 to RES 4 to build up to a ninety-six (96) unit single-family subdivision. The RES 4 land use designation affords an additional step down in density from more highly urbanized areas. This land use designation permits a maximum density of up to four (4) units per acre. A companion application for a change of zoning classification from RR-1 (Rural Residential) and IN(L) (Institutional Use, Low-Intensity) to RU-1-11 (Single-Family Residential) accompanies this request.

 

To the north of the subject property is grazing land, to the east is the Lakes at St. Sebastian Common Area and The Lakes at St. Sebastian Preserve subdivision, to the south is State-owned land being used by St. John’s River Water Management District, and to the west is grazing land within the City of Palm Bay.

 

The Board may wish to consider if the request is consistent and compatible with the surrounding area.

 

The Board of County Commissioners will consider the request on Thursday, April 7, 2022, beginning at 5:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Brevard County Government Center, 2725 Judge Fran Jamieson Way, Commission Room, Viera, Florida.
