The Pasco County Commission unanimously has approved a request that will allow 10,000 square feet of office and retail uses, along with 56 multi-family units on a 2.4-acre site, south of Pleasant Plains Parkway, about 550 feet east of Land O’ Lakes Boulevard, in Connerton.
The development site is behind the nearby Publix Super Market.
In approving the proposed change to Connerton’s master-planned unit development (MPUD), the county board also agreed to reduce the required parkland to .24-acre because of the site’s small size.
Staff recommended approving that request because the applicant, DR Reddy Commerce Center LLC, has agreed to increase the amenities within the park by adding three park elements and constructing a sidewalk extension on Pleasant Plains Parkway to connect to the existing multi-use trail, according to materials in the board’s April 4 agenda packet.
Because the site is small, the project will be a mixed-use, vertically integrated development.
The owner of the multi-family and residential site will be in charge of maintenance.
County staff identified 19,644 square feet of commercial entitlements within Connerton Village I MPUD, of which 10,000 square feet will be used for this project.
