A new apartment complex in the Dade City area will have a chance to move a big step closer to reality next Wednesday if the developers there can convince county officials to rezone nearly 22 acres of land off Clinton Avenue.
Six Feet Under LLC is asking the Pasco County Planning Commission to rezone land near Floral Memorial Gardens Cemetery from agricultural to high-density multifamily. That would allow the developers to build up to 160 apartments on now-vacant land. The project, according to documents filed with the county, is Quiet Valley.
Six Feet Under lists Vicky Johnson of Dade City as its manager. She’s associated with another company — Matthew 6:20 LLC — that owns more than 100 acres of primarily grazing and orchard land near Trilby and other parts of rural East Pasco.
The land, located on the north side of Clinton Avenue just a quarter-mile west of U.S. 301, was purchased from Hodges Family Funeral Home in late 2006 for $94,200, according to county property records.
Although no start date for the project has been announced, a study filed by Raysor Transportation Consulting said the community should be complete by 2017.
The first step to rezone the land would go through the planning commission, which meets again Dec. 3 at 1:30 p.m. at the West Pasco Government Center in New Port Richey. If the planning commission approves the rezoning, the matter would then have to come in front of the Pasco County Commission, likely early next year.
