A rezoning is being sought to allow a gas station at the southeast corner of the intersection at Overpass and Boyette roads, in Wesley Chapel.
Creighton Companies LLC is the applicant for the request.
The 4.9-acre site currently consists of 1.84 acres zoned as part of a master-planned development and 3.06 acres zoned for agricultural uses.
The rezoning request calls for a new master-planned zoning that would accommodate development of a 4,650-square-foot convenience store with 16 vehicle fueling positions and ancillary car wash, and 10,000 square feet of general commercial/retail.
The project site would have a right-in only connect to Boyette Road, a full access connection to Boyette Road, and an existing right-in, right-out connection to Overpass Road, shared with the adjacent Kids R Kids day care facility.
The buildout of the convenience store and fueling station is anticipated within approximately one year, according to the agenda packet.
The requested change was prompted by recent development approvals, including Overpass Business Park and the planned interchange at Overpass Road and I-75, which is scheduled to be completed by the summer of 2023, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
A companion request also has been filed to change the land use map from a designation allowing residential to one that permits commercial uses. The planning board and county planners also have recommended approval of that request.
These requests now will go to the Pasco County Commission, which has final jurisdiction over land use and zoning issues.
