The City of North Port received, reviewed, and approved four petitions for the redevelopment of the property formerly known as the Sabal Trace Golf Course.  The applicant wishes to develop the subject property as a primarily residential community of no more than 500 dwelling units with a minor component of mixed-uses located at its southern entrance.  To do so, the applicant is concurrently requesting the following to allow for a coordinated combination of residential, commercial, and professional office space:

  • A Large Scale Comprehensive Plan text and map amendments to change the future land use designation from Recreation Open Space to Activity Center #9 with supporting policies;
  • A Rezoning to change the current zoning district from Commercial Recreation to Planned Community Development (PCD) with Development Master Plan (DMP) approval; and
  • A text amendment to Chapter 55 of the Unified Land Development Code (ULDC) to include intensity, density, urban design standards, amenities, and uses criteria for the proposed Activity Center #9.
