The Hernando County BOCC voted 4-0 to adopt a resolution rezoning a 14.8-acre parcel off of Anderson Snow Road and Edward Noll Drive from PDP(IND)/Planned Development Project (Industrial) to PDP(CP)/ Planned Development Project (Corporate Park) with several modified performance conditions. One condition requires a navigation easement to the Hernando County Airport.
The applicant, Patricia Ortiz, AICP, of Anderson Snow Industrial Park LLC intends to “develop the property with Industrial Flex Space, a microbrewery and a limited amount of supporting commercial uses as allowed within the Planned Development/ Corporate Park zoning district,” as stated in the project narrative.
The narrative explains that industrial flex space is “attractive to a myriad of new industries including medical, technology, and design/ build; and it is more visually appealing than traditional industrial or warehouse uses because the loading areas and mechanical equipment are not visible from offsite and the more noxious uses associated with industrial zoning are excluded.”
Retail use of the property will be limited to no more than 30% of the development’s overall square footage, as required by the master plan.
The rezoning petition went through, but the applicant may have some additional details to work through per Alan Garman, Manager, with Civil-Tech Consulting Services LLC. Civil-Tech represents the original owner of the property, Holland Spring Industrial Properties. At the time of sale, there were certain “covenants placed on the deed stating that this property would not be re-zoned without permission of the original owner,” according to Garman.
