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.
Rocky Hanna is obviously involved or associated or behind this issue OR there is a school somewhere near there also and so he needs to somehow be mentioned in the comment sections of this article also; like he is in all the others! Right Snidley?
Our HOA invited the members of the planning commission to our meeting last week. It is critical for ANY interested homeowner to attend the meeting on March 6th. If this rezoning passes, this will only be the beginning.
Let’s go ahead and address the ridiculous traffic created from the toll road access and Bannerman Crossings nonsense first. Widen Bannerman, add turn lane at Bannerman and Tekesta, crest turn lanes for the neighborhood entrances all along Bannerman.
the developers will not be happy until Tallahassee looks like So. Fla. And the “connected” people in govt. get richer along with the developers. Homeowners & hometown Tallahasseans do not matter anymore. We escaped from the concrete jungle of Miami and have been blessed living in Tallahassee for the past 28 years. It’s really heartbreaking to see what’s been happening the past few years. Drive down Lake Hall Rd. at Thomasville Rd. to see for yourself.
Smaller lots mean:
1) more building will be done, which rewards the developers, and
2) more total property taxes get collected.
