". For those properties designated by Ordinance as the Maitland West Planned Development, the minimum cumulative open space (including functional open space) shall be 25%.

Mr. Dan Matthys, Community Development Director, stated the project is slightly over 34 acres. It is currently zoned Planned Development with the Orange County Future Land Use Designations. Tonight's meeting is the Transmittal Hearing and following Council's approval to introduce the ordinance, the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) will be transmitted to the State Department of Economic Opportunity. The Future Land Use is currently within the Orange County jurisdiction. The applicant is proposing to amend the FLUM designation, from the current Orange County designations, to a City of Maitland designation of Mixed Office Residential Commercial (MORC). He reviewed the applicants proposed amendments to the City of Maitland’s 2030 Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP), the 2030 CDP - Conservation Element, and the 2030 CDP- Future Land Use Element, and discussed the factors staff considered when reviewing the application. Additionally he reviewed the Development Review Committee’s (DRC) and the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) recommendations and stated staff recommends Council introduce the ordinance consistent with the DRC and P&Z recommendations and transmit the FLUM amendment to the Department of Economic Opportunity. He further added staff recommends Council deny the proposed text amendments consistent with DRC and P&Z recommendations.

Mr. Mike Wright, President MMI Development, Inc., stated, for the record, they did not propose to change the Future Land Use Map. It was a requirement imposed on them by the City as part of their annexation agreement. He discussed the project and the proposed amendments; spoke of the future of transportation and parking; and, posed a question to the City Attorney. Mr. Cliff Shepard, City Attorney, addressed his question.

Mayor McDonald requested public comments. There being no one who wished to be heard, Mayor McDonald closed the public comment period.

A motion was made to introduce the ordinance, as modified, consistent with the DRC and P&Z recommendations and transmit the FLUM amendment to the Department of Economic Opportunity; and deny the text amendments.
