On March 6, 2018, the Tallahassee-Leon County Planning Commission will consider a change to the zoning of approximately 30 acres located near the intersection of Bull Headley Road and Bannerman Road.
The public notice, provided below, states that the Commission will consider changing the current Lake Protection (LP) designation to the Lake Protection Node (LPN) zoning designation.
The change will allow for higher density development.
The meeting will be held at 6:00 PM in the 2nd Floor Conference Room of the Renaissance Center located at 435 North Macomb Street.
The current Lake Protection (LP) zoning district allows for the regulation and, where appropriate, limitation of development and redevelopment of land within the Lake Jackson Basin in a manner that improves water quality within the Lake.
The LP zoning district permits single-family residential development at one (1) dwelling unit per two (2) gross acres. A Clustered Subdivision option is available that allows two (2) dwelling units per gross acre, consistent with environmental and infrastructure constraints.
The Lake Protection Node (LPN) zoning district is intended to accommodate compact mixed-use development at designated major intersections to provide retail, service and recreation opportunities to nearby residents.
The LPN zoning district also seeks to create a community where travel by foot and bicycle is safe, convenient, and comfortable and to facilitate compatibility with nearby neighborhoods through buffers and careful site design.
Tallahassee Reports will publish more details on this item when information becomes available.
