At the regular meeting on February 14, 2023, the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) voted unanimously to approve the rezoning of a 19.70-acre property intended to hold 84 units for a 55+ rental villa community. The parcel is currently owned by the YMCA, and is just north of the YMCA facility on Mariner Blvd.

The property is zoned Planned Development Project – Special Use / YMCA (PDP(SU). That zoning will be retained with an added Planned Development Project – Multifamily (PDP(MF)) designation. Alex Deeb of Deeb Family Homes and owner of Tri County Development Inc (rezoning applicant) reported that part of the purchase agreement with the YMCA is to develop a multi-purpose field on the property for YMCA use.

YMCA of the Suncoast President / CEO G. Scott Goyer wrote to Planning Administrator Michelle Miller in support of the project,
“This letter is to confirm my full support and belief that the Hernando County YMCA and community would greatly benefit from the development of this project. The Y leadership team who oversees this project has reviewed the layout and feels it is very compatible with the YMCA of the Suncoast.

“The sale of this land, and the building of apartments is a dynamic benefit for the YMCA and the older adults who will be living in the apartments. Money from the sale of the land will be used for capital improvements at the Hernando County YMCA, and each of the seniors that reside within the apartments will receive a YMCA membership. Their memberships to the Y will support them physically and mentally in their health journey. On the remaining land, the buyer will be building a multipurpose field which will include upgraded and improved lights.

“On behalf of the YMCA of the Suncoast, I am confident in the development of this project. The sale of this land, and development of apartments will improve the community as a whole…”

The community will consist of 84 single-story villas with garages ranging in size from 1,000 to 1,500 square feet. The one-bedroom units will come with a one-car garage, and the others with two-car garages. Each tenant will have YMCA memberships included in their rent. Water, sewer, trash, cable TV, and internet are also included. Rental fees were not discussed during the meeting.
