The Pasco County Planning Commission has recommended approval of a change that would allow 11 more single-family homes in the Orange State Grove, north of County Line Road, west of Livingston Road, in Lutz.
The request also received a recommendation of approval from county planners and no one spoke for or against the request at the Pasco County Planning Commission’s May 6 meeting.
The applicant is seeking a Small-Scale Comprehensive Plan Map Amendment to change the land use designation from three dwellings per acre to nine dwellings per acre, on approximately 2.32 developable acres.
The existing Orange State master-planned development permitted 206 residential units. However, with the additional 11 single-family residential units, a land use change is needed to support the additional density.
Planners say the amendment will allow five more units than the existing density would permit.
The request now goes to the Pasco County Commission, which has final jurisdiction on land use and zoning issues.
