City Council to Discuss rezoning and influx of apartments near The Pavilion at Port Orange
Williamson Boulevard in Port Orange may be seeing a lot of construction soon. Projects will be discussed at tonight’s city council meeting to build 550 apartments and commercial buildings across from The Pavilion at Port Orange.
The two projects that will be discussed are The Springs at Port Orange and Mixed-use near Willow Run. The Springs project is a proposal to build a 292 unit multi-family apartment complex with plans for 12 buildings, a playground, a pool, and 2 separate spaces for retail and restaurant use.
This project is proposed to be built between Summer Trees Road and the White Palm apartment complex. Continental Properties, a developer based out of Wisconsin, is asking the city council for a change to the land development code because the area is zoned for a Planned Community Workplace District and this apartment complex will make the area more residential.
Other minor requests for The Springs at Port Orange Project include a change to the landscape buffer requirements. While still having a 50+ foot tree buffer, they are hoping to not have the need for a berm and fence.
Though many are on the fence due to traffic concerns in the area, Mayor Don Burnette is in favor of the zoning change.
The Mixed-use near Willow Run project is another topic that will be discussed at the city council meeting. NLA Holdings, LLC owns the 35-acre property at the corner of Williamson Blvd. and Willow Run Blvd.
Currently the property is zoned as Urban High Density Residential, Urban Medium Density Residential and a small piece of suburban residential. NLA Holdings is requesting the land to be rezoned to Mixed Use Center.
Though there are no official plans in place for this particular property, it seems the city is definitely interested in moving some of the commercial traffic away from Dunlawton Avenue
The city council meeting will be held tonight, April 17, at 6:30PM.
