BROOKSVILLE — The Hernando County Planning and Zoning Commission voted unanimously Monday to approve a staff recommendation allowing development of medical and professional offices out of two vacant homes off Spring Hill Drive.
The limited liability company proposing the project needed a revision of a previously approved master plan.
The biggest concern was traffic. Commissioner Denis Riley said Spring Hill Drive and Pinehurst Drive, the site of the development, is a high-accident intersection and wanted assurances that roadway modifications would be made to reduce congestion and facilitate traffic flow.
Planning staff assured him that the traffic plan would be addressed as the project moves through the development process.
Monday’s planning and zoning meeting lasted just 37 minutes, which is indicative of the current economic cycle, Commission Chairman Robert Widmar said.
