Further business for road?

CITRUS PARK: Another office park is being proposed along a quarter-mile stretch of Gunn Highway that is quickly becoming a commercial corridor.

The owners of the 2.25-acre parcel at the northwest corner of Gunn and Cain Road, east of the Veterans Expressway, seek a rezoning that will allow for the development of two two-story office buildings with a total area of 19,500 square feet.

The property's current zoning allows for homes with a minimum lot size of one acre. But recent commercial development and the noise generated by traffic on Gunn Highway have made the property unsuitable for residential uses, the petition said. A Wal-Mart Supercenter, offices, a church and several restaurants are planned for Gunn Highway, from Anderson Road to the Veterans Expressway.

A zoning hearing master is scheduled to hear about the proposal March 17. (Petition 03-0276)

NORTHDALE: Jiffy Lube has withdrawn its petition requesting a larger sign at its 16207 N Dale Mabry Highway store. The company was asking for a variance that would allow an 80-square-foot sign, 10 feet high. (Petition 02-1320)

When and where:

Hearings of county zoning hearing masters and land use hearing officers, as well as land use meetings of the County Commission, are held on the second floor of the County Center, 601 E Kennedy Blvd. Zoning hearings begin at 6 p.m., and commission meetings begin at 9 a.m. Both are televised on government access channels. Land use hearing officer hearings, which are not televised, begin at 9 a.m. For information, call 272-5920.
