Small-scale amendment request by Powell Family Investments to change 4.57 acres located on the west side of Lake Jackson, southeast of SR-85 on Lake Road, from Rural Residential to Rural Low Density, with the condition that only uplands on the west side of the lake would be used for septic tanks.

Small-scale amendment request by SELRAHC, L.P., to change 6.64 acres on the west side of Lake Jackson, southeast of SR-85 on Lake Road, from Rural Residential to Rural Village, with the condition of no septic tanks being located on the lake side of the property.

Small-scale amendment request by Sara S. Taveprungsenukul to change 0.14 acre in Blue Mountain Beach, at the corner of CR-30A and Flounder Street, from Residential Preservation to Neighborhood Commercial. The property had previously enjoyed legal nonconformity status when used as a doctor’s office and a real estate office, but that status had expired due to a cessation of such use.

Due to concerns of negative impacts on the neighborhood posed by some uses possible under the proposed land use, L. Jones moved to table the item and allow the applicant to proceed jointly with the amendment proposal and the development order application procedure for the proposed use.

The motion was approved unanimously.
