/Bigger self-storage sought at Henderson and Gunn.

/Project at Cain Road and Gunn wants second entrance.

So far, all the other government officials involved in the review of a planned development near Hutchison Road have signed off on the latest proposed changes. This week, the latest version should get a final yay or nay from the Hillsborough County Commission.

Harrold W. Harr wants to make major changes to his 27-acre project north of Macallan Drive. He seeks to reduce lot sizes from 9,600 square feet to 7,000 square feet and reduce the number of lots from 78 to 36.

Harr is proposing the construction of two houses on a 2.29-acre parcel north of the Veterans Expressway, 34 homes on 22 acres east of Hutchison Road and south of Chantilly Lake, and a day-care facility for 130 children on 3 acres southeast of Hutchison and Wilcox roads.

County staff, the Planning Commission and a zoning hearing master recommended approval of the project. (00-0729)

County commissioners also will hear the following petitions Tuesday:

CARROLLWOOD: Buckley Schuler Properties wants to modify an 8.61-acre planned development at the northwest corner of Henderson Road and Gunn Highway.

The company plans to increase the size of a self-storage facility and reduce the amount of floor space for a retail building.

County staff and the Planning Commission recommended approval of the petition. But zoning hearing officer Martin H. Smith recommended denial, stating the project does not provide "proper integration of adjacent land uses and the provision of transportation connections." (Petition 00-0734)

CARROLLWOOD: The Delk Family Trust want permission to build a second entrance off Gunn Highway into a 6-acre office park planned for Cain Road.

The entrance would allow for left turns in and out of the property, which will include a day care center, a medical office and a professional building.

County staff and the Planning Commission endorsed the project. (Petition 00-1080)

CITRUS PARK: Joseph Militello Sr. wants to rezone less than one acre at the northeast corner of Gunn Highway and Citrus Park Drive so he can develop an 8,880-square-foot retail center.
