This week in City Watch:
The Ormond Beach Planning Board will meet on Thursday, July 9, and there are three items scheduled for review.
Two of the items have to do with the 18-acre parcel of land at 350 Clyde Morris Boulevard near Aberdeen at Ormond Beach. The first is a comprehensive land amendment to assign a future land use designation, should the annexation of the parcel be approved upon second reading at the July 28 commission meeting.It was approved on first reading at the June 9 meeting.
The second item will assign a zoning to the property. City staff is recommending a Suburban Boulevard B-10 zoning.
According to city documents, the project civil engineer expressed a desire to build an assisted living facility and medical office in the parcel.
The other item on the agenda relates to the Ormond Memorial Art Museum expansion at 78 E. Granada Boulevard. OMAM is seeking a special exception to have five wall signs — it is allowed two without the exception — at the museum once the expansion is completed.
The almost $3 million project will add 6,800 square feet to the museum by way of a three-story addition, including more gallery space, a rooftop terrace and bigger classrooms.
The gardens will be left as is.
