[ARCHIVED] Annexation and Rezoning Request - Village of Cumnock

City Seal

The City of Sanford has received an Annexation Petition for the property described below. When/if the
subject property is annexed into the corporate City limits, the Sanford City Council must assign a
zoning district to the land within 60 days of the effective date of annexation (the zoning does not
automatically stay the  same).  Therefore,  the  following  application  for a  Zoning  Map  
Amendment/Rezoning  has  also  been submitted to the City of Sanford for review by the Planning
Board and the City Council so that when/if the property is annexed, the applicant may move forward
with the request to assign a zoning district to the land in a timely manner. The applicant would
like to have the land annexed into the corporate City limits so that City services (public sewer,
etc.) may be utilized in developing the site. The applicant has requested to keep the current
zoning of Planned Unit Development (PUD) as previously assigned by Lee County in 2013.

1.  REZONING REQUEST: Request to rezone a vacant 153 + acre tract of land with frontage on Cotten
Road, Cumnock Road, and Zimmerman Road for the purpose of marketing/developing a Planned Unit
Development (PUD) with the land uses and density illustrated on the attached plan (see Example of
Acreage Allocation). The subject property is owned by Village of Cumnock, LLC, zoned Planned Unit
Development (PUD), and is identified as Lee County Tax Parcel 9635-04-5989-00. The applicant has
requested to keep the current zoning of Planned Unit Development (PUD) as previously assigned by
Lee County in 2013.

scheduled for Thursday, August 27, 2020 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM Wicker Conference & Civic Center at

opportunity to meet with the applicant and staff regarding the rezoning application.  (This will
