Planning and Zoning Board approves 5 of 6 parcels petitioned by Hartland Homes, Inc.

At the regular Planning and Zoning meeting on Feb. 10, 2020 the board recommended the rezoning of 5 of the 6 parcels petitioned by Hartland Homes, Inc.  Hartland Homes is owned by State Representative Blaise Ingoglia (R - Spring Hill). The sale and potential development of the properties has been opposed by residents, most of them neighboring the various properties.   

The board recommended against the rezoning of a parcel bordering Holiday Drive and Trafalgar Drive.

Rezoning approved for microbrewery

Former Mobil station, Spring Hill Drive and Barclay

On April 10th, David Peitzman of the Tidal Brewing Company appeared before the Planning and Zoning (P&Z) commission to request rezoning of the former Mobil station on the corner of Spring Hill Drive and Barclay Drive in order to open a small microbrewery.

A microbrewery is a limited-production brewery, typically producing specialty beers and often selling its products only locally. Rezoning is necessary in order to dispense alcoholic beverages, as well as to allow for warehouse facilities and local distribution at this location.

Coastal engineer Don Lacey, on behalf of Bantam Realty, appeared before The Board of County Commissioners to propose the rezoning of 25 acres of agricultural land into a “Combined Planned Development Project.”

The rezoning was recommended by the Planning and Zoning Commission. The intent of the presentation was to showcase the potential for a farm-to-table restaurant utilizing the local farmlands. The parcel being looked at currently sits in the Airport Planned Development District near the intersection of 41 and Powell and allows everything except residential construction.
