Site rendering of a proposed single-family home with two floors over parking to be located at 20230 Gulf Blvd. Homeowners are Shylendra and Madhu Kumar.
INDIAN SHORES – A final site plan review request was unanimously approved to construct a single-family home with two floors over parking at the Aug. 8 Indian Shores Town Council meeting.

At the meeting, Freddy Socias represented Alvarez New Concepts of Tampa, a custom home builder that is the contractor for the project at 20230 Gulf Blvd. Socias presented a rendering of the residence at both the Town Council and Planning, Zoning and Building Committee meetings.

The property owners are Shylendra and Madhu Kumar.

Russell Ferlita Engineering was the engineering firm and Dennis Eyre with Geodata Services Inc. was the surveyor for the project.

Town building official Gregory Yantorno had proposed the Planning Committee recommend approval of the site plan submitted during the end of July. Yantorno told the Town Council the site plan was “in compliance with town codes.”

Bob Brotherton, the town’s engineer, recommended approval of the submitted site plan documents after reviewing them. Demolition of the previously existing two one-story residences on the property has been completed.

The town’s code requires two parking spaces and the site plan includes three. “Everything either meets or exceeds the (town’s requirements for the) cite,” said Brotherton.

Landscape amendment OK’d

Council members agreed to an amendment to a memorandum of understanding with the Florida Department of Transportation in which Indian Shores will receive an additional quarter million dollars to complete landscaping beautification along Gulf Boulevard.

The MOU, signed in February, set the cost of the project at $390,000. Town officials, however, said the project would require another $245,795, for a final cost of $635,975.

Councilor Mike Hackerson said that the “increase is justified” and that the “FDOT portion is fully funded,” making the changes advantageous for the town.

Town Clerk Stephanie Waters added that “nothing in the project has changed.”

The council approved the amendment by a vote of 3-1, with Mike Petruccelli voting against.

Town approves beach weddings requests

Weddings on a Whim received approval from the town to conduct two wedding ceremonies on the beach. The first wedding will be Friday, Dec. 1, at 4 p.m. near the 193rd Avenue beach access and the second will be Saturday, April 14, 2018, at 7 p.m. at 19601 Gulf Blvd. Each service will consist of 25 attendees.

A recommendation by the town’s administrator, Bonnie Dhonau, to waive the special event permit fee for a beach wedding involving Chief Hughes’ immediate family was unanimously approved.

Landscape pact approved

A license agreement between the town and Pinellas County for landscaping beautification and irrigation of county-owned property at Tiki Gardens and Park Boulevard boat ramp was unanimously approved. The license will be in effect for five years.
