19-2395A

Recommendation: Approval of the resolution reaffirming the policies of the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan, including the East Lake Overlay, that

restrict density in the north portion of Planning Sector Two to .5 unit per acre and formally requesting that the Pinellas Planning Council add a Residential Rural (.5 unit per acre) land use map category to the Countywide Plan Rules.
Tagged Passions:planning, rural, council, and strategic

* In 1989, the Countywide Plan Rules and associated plan categories were established. * The land use category for most of the northern portion of the

East Lake Tarpon area was Residential Rural (.5 unit per acre). * In 2015, the Countywide Plan Rules were amended, and many map categories were aggregated to reduce the number of unique land use categories. * As part of that aggregation, the existing .5 unit per acre designation and 1 unit per acre designation were combined into one land use map category with a maximum density of 1 unit per acre. * As a result, the parcels identified in Attachment A of the Resolution were increased in density from .5 unit per acre to 1 unit per acre on the Countywide Plan Map. * This action formally requests that parcels identified in Attachment A to the Resolution, consisting of 2,523 parcels containing approximately 3,285 acres of land be amended on the Countywide Plan Map from the current designation of RVL, Residential Very Low (1 unit per acre) to the new designation of Residential Rural (.5 unit per acre). * This will align the Countywide Plan Map and the Pinellas County Comprehensive Plan to restrict density in the East Lake Tarpon area to .5 unit per acre for those parcels identified in Attachment A of the Resolution.
