The Jacksonville Planning Commission will have another vote whether to recommend approval or denial of plans for the Hodges property at Butler Boulevard and Glen Kernan Parkway.

Commission members voted 4-2 Thursday to recommend denial of the rezoning, Ordinance 2019-317.

However, the recommendation was changed to deferral because of a procedural issue.

There is a requirement that at least five votes, for or against, are required to move a recommendation to the City Council Land Use and Zoning Committee for review.

The commission comprises nine members and three alternates.

The commission is scheduled to vote again June 20 on the ordinance.

It’s unclear when it could move on to council because of the council’s summer break.

The owner seeks rezoning for a mixed-use planned unit development on 48.53 acres west of Hodges Boulevard between Butler Boulevard and Glen Kernan Parkway, across from Windsor Commons shopping center.

The development could include up to 970 apartments along with commercial, retail, institutional and service establishments.

Current zoning allows development of commercial space, including a shopping center and a big box store.
