The Pasco County Commission has approved a rezoning to change residential zoning to commercial on 8.39 acres, on the south side of Catfish Lake Road, north of State Road 54.
The planned uses for the property are for a day care center and restaurant, according to the county board’s April 4 agenda packet.
The applicant has volunteered to record a deed restriction to prohibit these uses: car washes, gas stations, vehicle service stations, repair garages, stand-alone drive-thru restaurants and self-storage facilities and free-standing recreational vehicle and boat storage.
A 5-foot sidewalk along the northern property boundary also must be installed before the final building inspection of the first building, according to deed restriction.
Reima Investments LLC/Apple Enterprises Trust are listed as the applicants on this zoning.
In another agenda item, the county board approved a task order with Trias Construction to construct a new Pasco Fire/Rescue logistics building next to Fire Rescue Station No. 15, at 2036 Chesapeake Drive, in Odessa.
The project has been added to the 2015 Penny for Pasco Project List and the approved task order is in the amount of $744,840.
The task order covers the construction of a 60-foot by 80-foot metal building and concrete foundation. It also provides for the installation of metal pallet racks that will help organize the storage area, according to the county board’s April 4 agenda packet.
The county board approved the list of 2015 Penny for Pasco Projects on July 10, 2012, but additional funds were available and Fire/Rescue requested to add this logistics building.
The projected time of completion is 120 days from the notice to proceed.
In other action, the county board:
