Tonight, Winter Garden commissioners will hear the first reading for a proposed ordinance that would pave the way for a new commercial development.

The applicant behind the rezoning request, VMG Construction, aims to rezone a 0.54-acre property located at 43 First Street from C-2 (Arterial Commercial District) to PCD (Planned Commercial Development, according to city documents.

The company plans to build a one-story, 3,400-square-foot office building to house its headquarters on the south side of the property, according to the project’s application. The plans also include a new parking area, sidewalks, drive aisles and landscaping, and the project may also house other office uses. 

Currently, the property houses 1,800-square-foot masonry commercial office building constructed in 1920, and a 1,500-square-foot warehouse building constructed in 2016. The south side of the property has an asphalt-paved parking area.

City staff has recommended approval of the proposed ordinance. The ordinance’s second reading is scheduled for the following Winter Garden City Commission meeting on March 28.
