Planning Commission: Land use change near Mayo; Kazu Sushi Burrito wins zoning exception

Changes recommended for Unity Missionary Baptist Church.
by: Scott Sailer Staff Writer

The Jacksonville Planning Commission last week recommended approval to amend the land use on 189 acres north of WM Davis Parkway and the Mayo Clinic for medical and commercial offices and residential uses.

 Under Ordinance 2019-630, property owner Estuary LLC asks to change the land use through a large-scale amendment from low density residential and medium density residential to residential-professional-institutional.

A companion ordinance will seek rezoning from rural residential-acre and residential medium density-A to planned unit development. 

Zoning exceptions

The planning commission approved a zoning exception for Kazu Sushi Burrito at 4549 Southside Blvd. to offer the sale and service of all alcoholic beverages for on-premise consumption.

The restaurant is one of seven tenants in two buildings in front of the 20-screen Cinemark Tinseltown theater.

Land use amendments, rezoning recommendations

The planning commission recommended land use amendments and rezoning for:

• Ordinance 2019-631, which seeks a small-scale land use amendment of 0.87 acres at 265, 281 and 285 E. 44th St. and 296 E. 45th St. E. It would change from low density residential to public buildings and facilities to allow the continued use as a church and convert a vacant school to group care home. The owner and church is Unity Missionary Baptist Church of Jacksonville FL Inc. The proposed rezoning under companion Ordinance 2019-632 would change from residential low density-60 to PUD.

• Ordinance 2019-633, to rezone 2.74 acres at 4945 Lenior Ave., east of Philips Highway. It would change from industrial business park and PUD to commercial community general-1 to allow hotel-motel development.

• Ordinance 2019-493, to rezone 16.99 acres, known as Capital Park East, at Airport Center Drive East between Starratt Road and Dunns View Drive. It would allow D.R. Horton to build 140 townhome units on a 12.92-acre parcel north of Airport Center Drive East and allow up to 87,000 square feet of neighborhood commercial on the 4.07-acre parcel southwest of Airport Center Drive East.

• Ordinance 2019-637, to rezone 32.43 acres at Pondue Lane, northwest of Interstate 295 and Collins Road. It would change from residential medium density-A and residential medium density-C to PUD to allow up to 108 townhomes and 330 apartments. The owner, Palm Beach-based Gulfstream Jacksonville LLC, proposes a community complex with recreational facilities and offices serving both apartments and townhomes.

• Ordinance 2019-636, to rezone 4.27 acres at 4040 Ricker Road, north of Gregory Drive. It would change from residential medium density-D to PUD to allow 60 residential units in 15 quadraplex buildings.

• Ordinance 2019-276, to rezone 13.4 acres north of Julington Creek Road between Aladdin and Linjohn roads. It would change from rural residential-acre, requiring one-acre lots, to residential low density-80, requiring minimum 8,800-square-foot lots.

Land use amendments and rezonings require approval by the City Council Land Use and Zoning Committee and then full council approval.
