Shopping plaza faces P&Z scrutiny


BROOKSVILLE - The next step in the development of Cortez Commons, at the southwest corner of State Road 50 and Mariner Boulevard, will take place Tuesday when planning commissioners will consider a conditional plat approval from the developer.

Hernando Today reported last week that 10 retailers are eyeing that 20-acre intersection and a conceptual plan has already been submitted to the building department for review. The developer, Michael Collard Properties, will take that plan to the prospective tenants.

On Tuesday, P&Z members will look at the project from an infrastructure perspective: water and sewer, drainage retention areas, access to utilities, road accessibility and development of a frontage road to ease traffic congestion.

Tenants that have expressed an interest in coming to Cortez Commons are: Longhorn Steakhouse, Bonefish Grill, Bob Evans, Wawa, Dick's Sporting Goods, DSW Shoe Warehouse, ULTA, Hobby Lobby, Mattress Firm and Vitamin Shoppe.
