At the regular meeting on January 14, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved the rezoning of a 20.2-acre parcel on the southeast side of Sterling Hills Boulevard, approximately 900′ of its southern terminus.  The entrance to the parcel will be an extension of Windance Ave from Sterling Hills Blvd. 

The proposed name for the subdivision was not mentioned during the meeting.

The land is currently zoned agricultural (AG) and will be rezoned as Planned Development Project (Single Family) (PDP(SF)) to accommodate 80 lots for single-family residences, defined in the petition as 13 60-foot lots with a minimum area of 7,200 square feet and 67 50-foot lots with a minimum area of 6,000 square feet.  The overall density for the project is 4 dwelling units per acre.

Attorney Darryl Johnston represented the petitioner and owner of the property, Christopher Wert.  The Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) recommended approval of the petition with the modification of adding a 30-foot vegetation buffer of 80% opacity along the north and east borders of the property.  

The eastern border includes a masonry wall that currently separates this property from the Pristine Place subdivision.

Another requirement is that the project includes a gated emergency access meeting the design requirements of the Fire Department in the southwest corner of the site to connect with Sterling Hills Phase IV.
