Special use (land use)

Barbara Aderhold provided information on this special use project

Special Use 21-1224

This is the borrow pit on Lutz Lake Fern Road. The request is to extend the existing Special Use for an additional 10 years until 12/19/31. This permit expires 12/21. All the conditions of SU15-0913 shall remain.

There is a staff report in the file (as of 10/20/21) that appears to not be recommending approval. This goes before a Land Use Hearing Officer on 12/14/21 at 9am. This date may change.

In the event this does go forward on 12/14/21, it will be before a LUHO (Land Use Hearing Officer) and the meeting begins at 9:00am.

I would encourage our members to write to the LUHO and/or speak before the LUHO on 12/14. Express your opinion that you do not want this permit to be extended another 10 years. The community and the environment have been through enough. The applicant has had 13 years to dig this hole.

You can email Michelle Heinrich, the County planner, at Heinrichm@hillsboroughcounty.org. And this will be placed into the record.

To speak follow the directions that you have for the Plan Amendment process but click on:
