Requested Action:
It is requested that the Board of County Commissioners conduct a public hearing to consider a change of zoning classification from AU (Agricultural Residential) to RU-1-13 (Single-Family Residential).

To the west, across N. Tropical Trail, are two (2) single-family residences, each on 1.25 acres lots zoned EU.
