The Pasco County Planning Commission has recommended expansion of the Villages of Pasadena Hills.
The proposal also calls for shifting entitlements from one village in VOPH to another.
The proposed changes, which would be made to the county’s comprehensive plan, also call for improvements to enhance the area’s road network.
The planning board held a public hearing on the item, which now goes to the Pasco County Commission for final action.
The inclusion of additional parcels will help facilitate the construction of essential vision roads of the VOPH Master Roadway Plan, according to background materials in the planning board’s agenda packet.
The additional parcels would be along the current alignment of the Zephyrhills Bypass.
A related action, recommended for approval by the planning board and county planners, calls for a future master-planned unit development, called Hamilton Oaks, to construct a portion of the road for mobility fee credits.
Additionally, the proposal calls for shifting the boundaries in VOPH’s Village B and Village F to enable Prospect Road to be extended by a developer and to create a connection to the existing Curley Road.
The proposed Hamilton Oaks MPUD allows for up to 240 single-family residences. That application also requests for the development to be included within the boundaries of VOPH.
In other action at its Nov. 2 meeting, the planning board:
- Recommended approval of a change to the county’s comprehensive plan that would increase allowable residential development on 28.23 acres at the southeast intersection of Ashton Oaks Boulevard and State Road 54. The current land use designation calls for three dwellings per acre. The new designation would allow six units per acre. The applicant is proposing 140 platted townhomes at the site.
- Recommended approval of a zoning change that would change the zoning on about 19.82 acres of industrial land at the southwest corner of State Road 52 and Ehren Cutoff from general industrial to light industrial. The change would allow light industrial uses on the portion of the site fronting State Road 52, while preserving general industrial uses on another portion of the property. In essence, the intensity of uses would decrease.
- Approved a request for the Cherry Hills West master-planned unit development that will rezone land now zoned for agricultural residential to a designation that would allow a maximum of 160 single-family detached residences on 34.07 acres on the east side of VFW Road, south of County Road 52.
