New Development in Northwest Gainesville? City Commission Plans To Vote Tonight
Tonight, the City Commission may get the plan going.
Right now, the large parcel of land, which is off State Road 121 just north of U-S 441, is in its natural state with lots of trees and wetlands. The move tonight would be to change the area's land use category from agriculture to single family and conservation. The company plans to turn about a 1,000 acreas into a housing development with village centers. The other 700 acres would be a conservation area.
Gainesville Planning and Development Director, Eric Bredfeldt said the measure will likely get approval tonight.
"Hopefully, it will be a well-utilized development now and in the future," said Bredfeldt.
However, the city has already received some concerns from residents in a nearby neighborhood, who want the land to stay as is. This is just the first step in a three step process for approval.
If approved tonight, the land use change will go to the state for review and then back to the city for a second reading.
