Chairman Shafer called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. 8. Public hearing, discussion, and possible action on a Rezoning for South Hampton, consisting of 16.399 acres generally located south of Nantucket Drive between State Highway 6 and Harper's Ferry Road, from A-O Agricultural Open to PDD Planned Development District. (04-82) Staff Planner Prochazka presented the Staff Report. Ms. Prochazka stated that the applicant is requesting the rezoning in order to continue the development of South Hampton, a single-family subdivision and that Staff is recommending approval of the rezoning. Ms. Prochazka explained that the PDD-H zoning that was established in 1997 expired in 2003 and the zoning reverted back to A-0. She stated that Staff views the purpose of this PDD as reinstating the previously approved land uses in the original PDD-H. Ms. Prochazka explained that the uses requested are for 43 single-family residential lots, buffers and landscape reserves, similar to those developed in South Hampton Phase 1. If the zoning is approved, the lot configuration and street layout will go before the Design Review board for approval. Finally, Ms. Prochazka pointed out that the request is in compliance with the Land Use Plan. Commissioner White asked about the life of a PDD zoning district. Ms. Prochazka explained that under the UDO, the zoning does not expire but rather the concept plan, which has a life of one year. At a later date, an ordinance establishing an expiration date of two years was added to PDD zonings. This particular PDD expired two years from the date of that ordinance. All PDD zonings that predated that expiration ordinance expired August 2003. Chairman Shafer opened the public hearing. Since no one spoke, Chairman Shafer closed the public hearing.
