GATE update: PLEASE START CIRCULATING THIS ASAP
There is a CRITICAL meeting on Wed 11.3.21 at 6pm at the library. Please read below in it's ENTIRETY. GATE is starting to make their next move. The following has been shared with me. I did not write this:
Ponte Vedra Zoning District Regulations Changes
A resident of Ponte Vedra Beach (with STRONG ties to GATE and the Peyton family), who specializes in securing entitlements including land use and zoning changes, has submitted a request to significantly change the Ponte Vedra Zoning District Regulations. Even if you do not live directly in the zoning district, this would impact the attractiveness of the entire area and potentially your property values. Ponte Vedra Beach is a unique community with a designation as a Coastal Corridor. The request allows three stories instead of two, the population density of condos and hotels built in Ponte Vedra would increase by 50% within the same footprint. This will increase our traffic and all other impacts. The height requirement would remain the same: 35', but the ordinance would also allow a flat roof which would obviously allow more usable square footage to be packed into three stories
The Ponte Vedra Zoning Board refused to vote on the request and instead insisted that a Community Workshop be held to hear the voices of many Ponte Vedra Beach residents. This workshop is scheduled as follows:
November 03, 2021 at 6:00 pm
PONTE VEDRA PUBLIC LIBRARY
101 Library Blvd, Ponte Vedra, Florida.
The request includes increasing building and fence heights, allowing structures to be built into the 10-foot side yard set-back and changing the review of allowing flat roofed structures.
Please attend this meeting so that your voice can be heard by the Ponte Vedra Zoning and Adjustment Board and The St Johns County Commissioners.
