GAPB set to hear proposal for 55-lot subdivision on city's southside
By Ken Stanford Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board (GPAB) is set to hear a proposal for a new subdivision when it meets Tuesday.
Alcovy-20, Inc. wants to amend the existing Planned Unit Development (P-U-D) zoning on a 26-acre tract on the east and west sides of Wilson Drive near its intersection with Athens Highway. The applicant is proposing a 55-lot single-family subdivision for the site, with two-story homes with a minimum of 1,500 square feet.
According to the application, the property originally was part of a larger 82-acre tract that was annexed and zoned Planned Residential Development with conditions (P-R-D-c) in 2004 for a 165-lot subdivision and a small grocery store. The zoning was amended in 2006 as part of a larger 126.2-acre development for office/warehouse/retail uses and was only partially developed with a small commercial building on an adjacent parcel that is not part of the current zoning amendment request.
The Planning Division staff is recommending conditional approval of the request.
ALSO ON THE AGENDA
Also on the agenda for Tuesday's meeting are plans for a proposed assisted living facility at 1351 Park Hill Drive near Enota Circle. The request, from Beehive Homes, to rezone the property from R-I (Residential-One) to R-II (Residential-Two), with a special use, was tabled at last month's planning board meeting.
Planning Manager Matt Tate said at the time that advertisements calling for the rezoning needed to be corrected.
The planning staff is also recommending conditional approval of this application.
