PAR site plan before P&Z

Anna Maria’s planning and zoning board at a Jan. 19 public hearing was scheduled to review a site-plan application by Pine Avenue Restoration LLC.

The site plan is for 216 Pine Ave., where PAR proposes to develop a two-story retail-office-residential complex.

PAR’s site-plan application was made before the city commission and P&Z board discussed having development applications for the ROR district go to the city commission for approval, not the P&Z board.

The commission will have to meet and vote on any amendments to the site-plan procedures before the proposed change is implemented.

The P&Z board generally does not grant final approval at the first site-plan hearing, but continues the public hearing to a date and time certain to gather more information and have questions to staff and the applicant answered.

City Commissioner Harry Stoltzfus is already on record as opposing the project. Stoltzfus made his comments on a blog site and in a letter to the city.
