The county received the last of the responses from those agencies on June 22. The proposed Spring Center Planned Development District (PDD) is located on a 450 acre parcel of property in Spring Hill, just south of Northcliffe Blvd, with Greynolds Avenue to the east, Dunkirk Road to the south, and River Road to the west.

Spring Center comprehensive plan amendment will be transmitted to state
