owned by Helen G. Burleigh, in care of Wikle Properties) through Burnett Design Engineering Co., in care of Keith Burnett, for a change of zoning from C-1 to C-2 (Z-3-4-05), re approximately one acre located on the east side of U.S. Alternate Highway 19, 120 feet south of Fulton Street. Staff recommended denial of the application based upon the Local Planning Agency Report. One letter and one petition containing seven signatures in opposition to the application have been received.

Mary Quadros, Tarpon Springs, stated that keeping the existing C-1 zoning in the middle of surrounding properties zoned C-2 would be inconsistent. Referring to the signers of the petition opposing the application, she stated that some do not live in the area, some have properties already zoned C-2, and some are renters. In response to the Chairman’s call for individuals wishing to speak, Jeff Johnston, Tarpon Springs, stated that he is in favor of staff’s recommendation for denial of the application; whereupon, he expressed his concerns. In response to the Chairman’s call for other individuals wishing to speak, Laura Johnson, Tarpon Springs, stated that she is in objection to the recommendation for denial; that she is related to Mrs. Quadros; that the applicant does not intend to use Fulton Road for access to the property; and that an individual has expressed interest in purchasing the property for a higher C-2 use for a tree service. Alluding to the concerns of the objector, Mrs. Quadros pointed out the location of Mr. Johnston’s residential property and other parcels in the surrounding area with
existing C-2 zoning; whereupon, in response to queries by the Chairman and Commissioner Stewart, Mr. Cassel discussed existing zoning and land use designations in the area and staff’s opinion that the existing C-1 zoning is ideally suited for the area.
