GAPB set to hear proposal for 55-lot subdivision on city's southside

By Ken Stanford Reporter
GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville Planning and Appeals Board (GPAB) is set to hear a proposal for a new subdivision when it meets Tuesday.<br /> <br /> Alcovy-20, Inc. wants to amend the existing Planned Unit Development (P-U-D) zoning on a 26-acre tract on the east and west sides of Wilson Drive near its intersection with Athens Highway. The applicant is proposing a 55-lot single-family subdivision for the site, with two-story homes with a minimum of 1,500 square feet. <br /> <br /> According to the application, the property originally was part of a larger 82-acre tract that was annexed and zoned Planned Residential Development with conditions (P-R-D-c) in 2004 for a 165-lot subdivision and a small grocery store. The zoning was amended in 2006 as part of a larger 126.2-acre development for office/warehouse/retail uses and was only partially developed with a small commercial building on an adjacent parcel that is not part of the current zoning amendment request.<br /> <br /> The Planning Division staff is recommending conditional approval of the request.<br /> <br /> <b>ALSO ON THE AGENDA</b><br /> <br /> Also on the agenda for Tuesday's meeting are plans for a proposed assisted living facility at 1351 Park Hill Drive near Enota Circle. The request, from Beehive Homes, to rezone the property from R-I (Residential-One) to R-II (Residential-Two), with a special use, was tabled at last month's planning board meeting.<br /> <br /> Planning Manager Matt Tate said at the time that advertisements calling for the rezoning needed to be corrected.<br /> <br /> The planning staff is also recommending conditional approval of this application.<br />
