Leesburg commissioners will review a recommendation to revamp downtown parking and annexation of two parcels for development during Monday’s commission meeting.
The comprehensive parking plan will optimize parking within downtown Leesburg while enhancing pedestrian traffic. The plan calls for adopting a local parking ordinance which gives the city engineer the ability to designate parking locations within the city.
Commissioners will also consider granting a zoning change from Estate Density Residential to City of Leesburg PUD (Planned Unit Development ) for a 135-acre parcel located south of the Florida Turnpike and east of County Road 33. The PUD will have up to 371-single family homes. The Planning Commission recommended that the city commissioners approve the zoning change during the Oct. 19 meeting.
Commissioners will also consider a request to change a 39-acre parcel’s zoning from Neighborhood Mixed Use to General Commercial.
This property would contain retail and multi-family buildings. The property is located east of the Florida Turnpike and south of County Road 470. The Villages is located across CR 470 from the property.
