Ocoee leaders gave the OK for a proposal pertaining to a Planned Unit Development at 901 E. Crown Point Road during the June 19 commission meeting.
The 2.4-acre property, which currently contains a plant nursery and manufactured home, is located on the east side of East Crown Point Road, north of the Crown Point Cross Road and East Crown Point Road intersection.
According to city documents, the site is presently zoned Orange County Agriculture (A-1) with a future land use designation of low-density residential. The developer requested to annex the property into the City of Ocoee with a zoning classification of Planned Unit Development and a future land-use designation of light industrial.
The proposed project is for a 28,000-square-foot warehouse/office development consisting of 12 units spanning 2,403 square feet each.
The development will have a parking lot with 91 spaces and access will be via a driveway on East Crown Point Road. Onsite stormwater will be supported by a dry retention pond on the property.
