Council to consider additional land use ordinances

By Staff | Mar 11, 2016

City Council will discuss three land use and zoning change ordinance amendments at its regular meeting on Monday in Council Chambers.

All three of the amendments were unanimously denied by Planning & Zoning Commission members at its Feb. 3 meeting. The three requests are similar in nature to ones denied by council at its meeting last Monday.

The requests for changing property at 2909 Santa Barbara Place designations from Commercial Activity Center (CAC) to multi-family residential and zoning from marketplace residential to multi-family residential.

Owners of property at 422 NE 16th Place request a change from commercial/professional to multi-family residential.

Council will vote on an addendum to the Westin Incentive Agreement that was approved in December. It adds a performance deadline for completion of the community center project.

Developers are aware of the addendum and have agreed with the request.

Council also will be updated on an LCEC rate request sent to the Florida Public Service Commission and hear a summarization of the city’s draft of a proposed franchise agreement with the electric provider. A 30-year franchise agreement between the city and LCEC expires later this year and is up for renewal.

The city also is pursuing information on the feasibility of forming its own municipal electric utility to provide the city’s electric service.

The meeting is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m.
