In 2013, Minto Communities purchased the property formerly known as Callery Judge Groves Agricultural Enclave, a 3,800 acre site located in the central western communities. Minto Communities initially proposed a mixed use community to include up to 6,500 residential units, 1.4 million square feet of non-residential uses, a 150 room hotel, a 3,000-student college campus, and a baseball stadium. Minto representatives submitted a request to the County to revise the Ag Enclave language in the Plan and revise the Future Land Use Atlas (FLUA) concurrently to reflect their anticipated development proposal, which ultimately included ULDC text changes and a rezoning application. The proposed amendments are being submitted for review as an Agricultural Enclave pursuant to the Agricultural Lands and Practices Act, Section 163.3162.

Current Status

On October 29, 2014, the BCC adopted amendments to the County's Comprehensive Plan, and related zoning changes for the Minto West project, including 4,546 residential units, 2.2 million square feet of non-residential uses, a 150 room hotel, and a 3,000 student college.  Subsequent to the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan amendments, an administrative challenge was filed, which prevented the adopted Ordinance (2014-030) from going into effect.  However, the challenge was resolved, and on July 7, 2015, the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity issued a Final Order (DEO-15-087) finding the entirety of Ordinance 2014-030 "in compliance."

Agricultural Lands and Practices Act

Under the provisions of the Agricultural Lands and Practices Act, Section 163.3162, Section 163.3162(4)(a), the County is required to enter into a negotiation process within 30 days of a complete application. The application is considered 'complete' as of December 16, 2013. The statute states:

a) The local government and the owner of a parcel of land that is the subject of an application for an amendment shall have 180 days following the date that the local government receives a complete application to negotiate in good faith to reach consensus on the land uses and intensities of use that are consistent with the uses and intensities of use of the industrial, commercial, or residential areas that surround the parcel. Within 30 days after the local government’s receipt of such an application, the local government and owner must agree in writing to a schedule for information submittal, public hearings, negotiations, and final action on the amendment, which schedule may thereafter be altered only with the written consent of the local government and the owner.
