Background

This petition is for a request for a change in Zoning from AG-1 (Agricultural - 1du/ac) to IX (Industrial, Extraction) to allow for the continued use of the subject property as access to the mining operation located on the adjoining property under the same ownership.  The subject parcel consists of 4.87 acres located on the north side of Access Road, approximately 3/4 of a mile north of Orange Avenue. 

 

The subject parcel, in conjunction with the adjacent 25-acre parcel to the west, was utilized for a sand mining operation known as Baggett Mine.  Both parcels are currently owned by the applicant.  The lake created as part of the mining operation extends slightly into the western side of the subject parcel. 

 

Staff has determined that this petition is consistent with the goals, objectives, and policies of the St. Lucie County Comprehensive Plan and conforms to the standards of review as set forth in Section 11.06.03 of the St. Lucie County Land Development Code.  A full analysis of the standards of review can be found in the attached memo to the Planning and Zoning Commission, dated July 20, 2017.
