The following proposals have been submitted for review.
CARROLLWOOD: Maybe rush hour finally got to them.
Tony and Deborah Ferguson want to relocate their helicopter landing pad and turn a storage building into a hangar at 15439 Lake Magdalene Blvd.
Before the plan flies, the Fergusons need major modifications to their 12-acre site north of Lake Platt. The Fergusons previously filed for modifications when neighbors complained that the chopper pad was too close to residences. The Fergusons are hoping for approval of the new heliport, which is planned 600 feet away from homes with more sound buffering.
A zoning hearing master will hear the request on March 21, followed by Hillsborough County commissioners on May 10. (Petition 05-0446)
NORTHDALE: Five new houses may call Northdale home if modifications are granted.
Harold Harr wants to refashion part of a nearly 3-acre planned development at Wilcox and Hatton roads. Although the land was rezoned in 1984, construction of the Veterans Expressway split the project into three parcels and wiped out 27 lots.
Harr wants major modifications to build five single-family homes at the northern parcel, which now permits only two attached homes. He says the area has been heavily developed with subdivisions, and his five homes would mimic the size and look of the area. The lots will empty out on Hatton Road.

TOWN 'N COUNTRY: Adrian and Randy Castro need more room to churn out office furniture.
To expand their business, the Castros want to rezone almost an acre of agricultural land at 5820 Barry Road into a manufacturing zone.

LUTZ: If rezoning is approved, more walls may go up on Bearss Avenue.
Burkett Stucco wants to build an office and warehouse to run the decorative wall company, and needs to rezone the three-quarter acre vacant agricultural site at 148th Avenue into a planned development. The business driveways will exit onto 148th Avenue, not bustling Bearss Avenue.
