PREPARED BY:                      Name: Peter Walden, AICP                     

                     Title:                     Principal Planner                     

REQUESTED BY: Lucido and Associates, Morris A. Crady, AICP                                          

 

PRESET:     

PROCEDURES: Quasi-Judicial                     

 

BACKGROUND/RELATED STRATEGIC GOAL:

 

The existing future land use designation on the parcel is Estate Density up to two units per acre. The existing zoning district designation is RE-½A, Residential Estate District. The PUD zoning district will allow the applicant to transfer density and to cluster development; this will in turn provide more open space. The proposed site plan depicts a density of 1.2 units per acre and provides for approximately 84 percent open space project wide. The proposed Preserve Area Management Plan covers over 62 acres of the 97 acre parcel.

 

The project is located inside the Primary Urban Services District and therefore has utilities, including water and wastewater services available from Martin County Utilities.  The only access to the site is via SE Cove Road. Wetland impacts require a waiver and mitigation measures as there is no upland alternative to provide access to the property.

 

The proposed public benefits include an additional 10.4 acres of upland preserve area and the extension of the public sidewalk on the south side of the SE Cove Road approximately 3,000 ft. west from the entrance of The Preserve at Park Trace PUD to the entrance of the  Cove Royale PUD.

 

This application is scheduled for the Local Planning Agency on September 16, 2021.
