Apollo Beach: It's official. Developers on Tuesday paved the way for more building by winning the County Commission's approval for two new community development districts in southern Hillsborough County.
The Waterset North district will encompass 678 homes on 571 acres in Apollo Beach, the first phase of a project expected to take at least a decade to complete.
Newland Communities will spend $45-million on improvements to roads and other infrastructure. The developer will pay 83 percent of that cost. Homeowner assessment fees will cover the rest. Petition 06-0977
Lithia: Commissioners also approved an expanded FishHawk Community Development District on 150 acres, enlarging the district to 1,127 acres. The project includes 209 townhouses and 208 single-family homes. Developers will pay 83 percent of the $14-million for area improvements. Assessments to homeowners will fund the other 17 percent. Petition 06-2093
Brandon: A developer on Tuesday won permission to alter a site plan for 225 acres northeast of Bloomingdale Avenue and Providence Road.
Senior Capital was permitted in 2004 to build 218 units on the site. The County Commission approved Senior Capital's reduction in townhouses from 111 to 106, and an increase in assisted living units from 80 to 103. Petition 07-0350
Ruskin: TMSM Properties can reconfigure 8.8 acres on the southeast corner of SE 15th Street and Colding Drive. After enlarging a retention pond, TMSM needed to reduce its single-family lots from 33 to 24, with four fronting Colding Drive. Petition 07-0425
