PINELLAS PARK - In public hearings during its Feb. 9 meeting, the Pinellas Park city council voted to make land use changes that would allow a local auto dealership to expand.

The panel agreed on first reading to amend the land use plan map for a 1.7-acre parcel at 7651 U.S. Highway 19 from Institutional (I) to commercial general (CG). The change will allow the applicant, Crown Automotive, to expand its existing auto dealership further north.

In a separate vote, the council also voted to rezone a companion piece of property at 7651 U.S. Highway 19 from “P,” public district to “B-1,” general commercial district.

The property lies to the north of Pine Ridge Mobile Home Park and west of single-family dwellings and east of Bob Evans restaurant and HomeBanc.

According to information supplied to the council, the surrounding land uses are zoned Community Redevelopment District. The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended the changes on Jan. 5.

The final public hearing on the proposed changes is tentatively scheduled for May 11.

The council approved on second and final reading the annexation of 0.28 acres of vacant residential property at 6048 110th Ave. N.

In other actions, the council:

• unanimously approved the nomination of councilwoman Patricia Johnson to the board of trustees for the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust. The FMIT is a pooled self-insurance program whose membership consists of local governments.

• voted to authorize the city manager to sign an agreement with Duke Energy that would grant the utility a 10-foot easement at Freedom Lake Park to accommodate Duke’s utility equipment.

• authorized City Manager Doug Lewis to apply for $100,000 in Community Development Grant funding.

• authorized Mayor Sandra Bradbury to sign an agreement with the Pinellas County Homeless Leadership Board, Inc. to contribute $58,655 to the agency’s administrative costs.

• accepted a letters of resignation of James Knowlton from the Code Enforcement Board and Kathy Zach fro the Equestrian Board.
