Requested Map Amendments:
PCM120101: Pensacola Street and Mabry Street - Goodwill Industries-Big Bend Inc.
This is a request to change the Future land Use Map designation of the existing Goodwill Donation Center from "Government Operationa" to the "Suburban" category. The property totals 6.439 acres and is in the process of being purchased from the City by Goodwill Industries. The requested Suburban category allows for the existing and potential future uses by Goodwill Industries and reflects the change in ownership from government to private.
PCM120102: Fred George Road and Old Bainbridge Road - Reserve at Stony Creek, LLC
This is a request to change the Future Land Use Map designation from "Residential Preservation" to the "Urban Residential" category for a vacant 20.3 acre single parcel on the southeast corner of the intersection of Fred George Road and Old Bainbridge Road. The existing Residential Preservation category allows single-family housing up to six units per acre. The proposed Urban Residential category allows housing up to ten units per acre.
PCM120103: 9th Avenue and Thomasville Road - Marshall R. Cassedy Jr.
This is a request to change the Future Land Use Map designation from "Residential Preservation" to "Neighborhood Boundary" on three adjoining parcels (0.63 acres), located approximately 100' south of the intersection of 9th Avenue and Thomasville Road. Allowable uses would include residential up to eight units per acre including duplexes, townhomes, triplexes, and quadraplexes; and non-residential development scaled to serve the surrounding neighborhood such as offices and community services. Auto-oriented uses, such as gas stations or any other use having drive-through facilities, are not allowed.
PCM120104: Interstate-10 and Mahan Drive - Devoe Moore
This is a request to change the Future Land Use Map designation on 109.88 acres in "Suburban" and 65.5 acres in "Mahan Gateway Node" all to the "High Intensity Urban Activity Center" designation. The existing Suburban category allows residential development up to 20 units per acre and a variety of commercial and office uses. The existing Mahan Gateway Node category provides for mixed-use developments, commercial and office uses, and residential development ranging from 4-16 units per acre. The requested High Intensity Urban Activity Center provides for larger scale community wide and regional commercial activities and residential development up to 45 units per acre.
Requested Text Amendments:
PCT120105: Urban Service Area based Development of Regional Impact Exemption Area at I-10 and Mahan Drive - Devoe Moore
This is a request to provide a new policy in the Land Use Element designating parcels inside the Urban Service Area on the western corner of the intersection of Interstate 10 and Mahan Drive as a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) exemption area. This request utilizes recent changes to Florida Statutes that allow communities to designate areas inside their Urban Service Area to be exempt from the state and regional review based DRI process, just as lands inside the City of Tallahassee are currently exempted. The proposed exemption area totals 175.38 acres and is the same area requesting the High Intensity Urban Activity Center designation in amendment PCM120104.
PCT120106: Park Place Regional Activity Center - Planning Department
This is a request to amend the Future Land Use element to add a policy recognizing the Park Place Regional Activity Center in the Comprehensive Plan. The policy follows-up on and is consistent with a recently adopted County ordinance designating the area as a statutory Regional Activity Center. Designation as a Regional Activity Center increases the allowed density and intensity thresholds that would ordinarily trigger state and regional review based on the Development of Regional Impact process.
PCT120107: Conservation Subdivisions in Rural - Luis N. Serna
This is a request to amend the Comprehensive Plan to allow use of the conservation subdivision concept in the Rural future land use category. The subdivisions would be required to permanently set aside at least 50% of the total site as open space and they would receive a 230% density bonus by increasing the allowed density from one unit per ten acres to one unit per three acres. The proposed policy also includes four restrictions intended to limit the geographic availability of the provision.
PCT120108: Economic Element - Economic Development Council of Tallahassee-Leon County Inc.
This is a request to replace the existing Economic Development Element with a new, updated version that is intended to support the City and County's partnership with the Economic Development Council and to reflect existing economic development efforts underway by the City, the County, and the Economic Development Council.
PCT120109: County Housing Element - Leon County Department of Housing Services
This is a request to revised County Housing Element Policies 1.1.1, 1.2.4 and 1.3.1 to clarify the intent of the policies. The request is intended to implement recommendations from the County's Affordable Housing Advisory Committee (AHAC).
PCT120110: Mobility Element Level of Service - Tallahassee City Commission
This is a request to amend the Mobility Element to address the level of service for some streets that are being rebuilt to support multimodal access for all citizens by providing better pedestrian and bicycle access by reallocating space currently dedicated to automobiles. This change is consistent with policy direction within the Comprehensive Plan, but until such time that the concurrency system is officially restructured, the reduction in lanes can negatively impact the higher density redevelopment which is encouraged in these areas.
