We have posted the Directors Findings for the Density Calculations in a Special Mixed Planned Development in a B2, Community Shopping District in conjunction with PD2016-002.
In determining the density calculations, the Planning and Zoning Director subtracted the areas associated with commercial development from the total development area. The commercial development area was determined to be the floor and parking areas associated with the commercial portion of the development.
In addition to the density calculations, other factors along with the parking analysis, landscaping, buffers, and the overall height and scale of the project must also be considered in determining the density of the project.
"The Planning Director's opinion will require the developer to revise their plan and reduce the number of units," Mayor Michael Pantelides said. "I know that the community brought up some valid points, and those points were strongly considered by the Planning and Zoning Director in making his finding."
"As we move forward, I will work with the Office of Law to update the City Code to define Gross Residential Development. Until then, we will have to wait and see if developers revise their current plan or appeal the density calculations," Pantelides added.
