Holmes Beach approves marina rezone
The Holmes Beach City Commission unanimously approved the final ordinance to pave the way for developers Brian Quartermain and Raymond Rairigh of Moreland Marine Development Corp. to demolish the Holmes Beach Marina at 202 52nd St. and develop townhouse-style condominiums.
The approved ordinances amend the future land-use map of the city's comprehensive plan and amend the property’s zoning from commercial, C-3, to residential medium density, R-2.
No one spoke against the zoning and use changes, and Sue Normand, planning chairperson, noted that the planning commission and the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council are in favor of the plan because "the reduction in intensity of activity in that area overrides the increase in density."
The 1.6-acre site will be the location of nine luxury townhomes.
