C-2 Rezoning for Storage Unit, Professional Space, Possible Hotel on Spring Hill Drive

Commissioners at the May 14 regular meeting of the Hernando Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) unanimously approved the rezoning of a 21.3-acre property on the north side of Spring Hill Drive, nestled between the Springwood Estates and Deerfield subdivisions. The property was never developed after being zoned PDP-GHC (Planned Development Project – General Highway Commercial) in 1988.

The original zoning permits all C-1 uses; however, the petitioner, Land America, LLC, on Behalf of DBW Enterprises, Inc., requested C-2 uses in order to build a climate-controlled self-storage building. The BOCC pared down the allowed C-2 uses and modified some of the conditions recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission prior to approval.

Commissioner John Allocco kicked off the discussion, reminding citizens that the original 1988 zoning already allows for permitting commercial construction, such as hotels, motels, fast food restaurants and gas stations. The C-2 designation would allow for the planned storage facility.

After some discussion, the petition was approved with limitations on the C-2 uses, which will only include light construction service establishments, mini warehouse, and veterinarian clinic or hospital services establishments. These uses will be limited to the north side of the property. The tallest structure will be limited to 35 feet.

Anne Pollack, a representative for Land America and DBW, presented the site plan, showing smaller C-1 and C-2 uses for the lots nearest to Spring Hill Drive and larger lots internally for business and professional space, light construction service, climate-controlled self-storage and possible hotel.
Access will be limited to Spring Hill Drive only, without connecting any roads from Springwood Estates, reducing the impact on the adjacent neighborhoods. The developer is expected to work together with County engineering to coordinate the access points.

Several local residents commented on their opposition to any connections to roads within the subdivisions, which was accepted by Pollack, who submitted a reported 90 signatures to the BOCC collected from residents. This rezoning actually serves as an advantage to residents since the BOCC has effectively prohibited the connecting of roads from the subdivision.
