Overview Small scale map amendment from Low-Density Residential to Commercial Re-zoning from Single-Family Residential (RE-1) to Retail Sales and Services (BR) Parcel is approximately 2.06 acres, located at intersection of Newberry Rd. and NW 122 nd St.

In conjunction with this request is a request to re-zone from Low-Density Residential (RE-1) to Retail Sales and Services (BR).

Commercial development outside of areas specifically designated in accordance with Sections 3 and 6 of this element shall only be permitted within Transit Oriented Developments or Traditional Neighborhood Developments as specified in the Urban Residential policies, including location, density, and design standards.
Site Inconsistencies with Commercial Development pursuant to Comp Plan Site is located between two existing Activity Centers along Newberry Rd. (Jonesville and Oaks Mall) Site size (just over 2 acres) is too small to effectively develop into a Traditional Neighborhood or Transit Oriented Development Approval of the land use amendment would create a commercial enclave, which is inconsistent with the Comprehensive Plan
Staff Recommendation Staff finds the proposed request inconsistent with the Alachua County Comprehensive Plan and Unified Land Development Code. Staff recommends that the Commission deny the small-scale comprehensive plan amendment and the re-zoning with bases as listed in the staff report.
