Body

SUMMARY: 

This voluntary annexation petition involves a 0.288-acre property consisting of one parcel of land occupied by a single-family dwelling. The property is located on the south side of Brentwood Drive approximately 340 feet west of Woodcrest Avenue. The applicant is requesting annexation in order to receive sanitary sewer and solid waste service from the City. The property is contiguous to existing city boundaries to the north and west. It is proposed that the property be assigned a Future Land Use Map designation of Residential Low (RL) and a Zoning Atlas designation of Low Medium Density Residential (LMDR).

 

The Planning and Development Department determined that the proposed annexation is consistent with the provisions of Community Development Code Section 4-604.E as follows: 

 

                     The property currently receives water service from the City of Clearwater. The closest sanitary sewer line is located in an easement to the southwest of the subject property, at the northwest corner of 1726 Lakeview Road. The applicant has paid the City's sewer impact and assessment fees and is aware of the additional costs to extend city sewer service to this property. Collection of solid waste will be provided by the City of Clearwater. The property is located within Police District II and service will be administered through the district headquarters located at 645 Pierce Street. Fire and emergency medical services will be provided to this property by Station #47 located at 1460 Lakeview Road. The City has adequate capacity to serve this property with sanitary sewer, solid waste, police, fire and EMS service. The proposed annexation will not have an adverse effect on public facilities and their levels of service; and

 

                     The proposed annexation is consistent with and promotes the following objectives and policy of the Clearwater Comprehensive Plan:

 

Objective A.6.4 Due to the built-out character of the City of Clearwater, compact urban development within the urban service area shall be promoted through application of the Clearwater Community Development Code.

 

Objective A.7.2 Diversify and expand the City’s tax base through the annexation of a variety of land uses located within the Clearwater Planning Area.

 

Policy A.7.2.3 Continue to process voluntary annexations for single-family residential properties upon request.

 

                     The proposed Residential Low (RL) Future Land Use Map category is consistent with the current Countywide Plan designation of the property. This designation primarily permits residential uses at a density of 5 units per acre. The proposed zoning district to be assigned to the property is the Low Medium Density Residential (LMDR) District. The use of the subject property is consistent with the uses allowed in the District and the property exceeds the District’s minimum dimensional requirements. The proposed annexation is therefore consistent with the Countywide Plan and the City’s Comprehensive Plan and Community Development Code; and

 

                     The property proposed for annexation is contiguous to existing city boundaries to the north and west; therefore, the annexation is consistent with Florida Statutes Chapter 171.044
