New homes are on the way to Winter Garden after city leaders unanimously approved the final plat and right-of-way maintenance agreement for Heritage at Plant Street.
Located at 605 E. Plant St., Heritage at Plant Street sits on 16.56 acres. The final plat for development was approved for the creation of 43 townhome lots and 41 single-family lots, Community Development Director Steve Pash said.
“There’s a lot in demand (for homes),” Pash said.
In addition to Heritage at Plant Street, commissioners also voted unanimously to approved the first reading of a rezoning ordinance pertaining to a 9.18-acre property generally located on the south side of East Oakland Avenue, west of Tildenville School Road and north of West Colonial Drive. Ordinance 18-23 seeks to rezone the property — known as Oakland Hills PUD — from R-1 (single-family residential district) to Planned Unit Development (PUD). The second reading of the ordinance will take place during the June 28 meeting.
An approval of the second reading of Ordinance 18-23 would allow for the development of 17 single-family homes and a maximum of nine optional accessory dwelling units.
Pash said the accessory dwelling units could be described as garage apartments, granny flats or in-law suites.
“They’re (going to be) estate-type houses,” Pash said. “It’s a very nice development. It would be 17 new single-family lots — 17 spots for new families to move into town. It creates another good neighborhood.”
