The commission approved three ordinances at their August 24 meeting, allowing for the construction of a new 25,802 square-foot Lincoln of Coconut Creek dealership.
Each will receive a second and final reading at a later unspecified date. Under the ordinances, Lincoln would have a one-story standalone facility immediately west of the existing Infiniti of Coconut Creek dealership at 5501 W. Sample Road.
Those ordinances include a site plan and a rezoning request. Currently, the property is zoned as the Infiniti of Coconut Creek Planned Development District. It would be renamed the Infiniti-Lincoln of Coconut Creek Planned Mainstreet Development District upon final approval.
A third ordinance would add a new section to the city’s land development code titled “Master Business List – Planned Main Street Development District” to specify the permitted and special land uses for the Infiniti-Lincoln of Coconut Creek Planned Mainstreet Development District.
Permitted uses include an auto dealership and automobile body shops, parts, services, and washes that are incidental only to the dealership.
Jay Huebner of HSQ, Inc., on behalf of TT of Sample, the property owner, made the requests to construct the new Lincoln dealership.
Before the commission’s approval, the Planning and Zoning Board voted to forward a favorable recommendation supporting the ordinances’ approvals. The approvals, however, come with conditions.
Property owners must address all comments and concerns throughout the development review process, and HSQ, on behalf of TT of Sample, must obtain, at a minimum, bronze certification through the Florida Green Building Coalition within 18 months of the date of receiving the certificate of occupancy.
Commissioner John Brodie moved to approve the rezoning ordinance, which Commissioner Jackie Railey seconded. It passed unanimously.
Brodie moved to approve the master business list and site plan items. Commissioner Jeffrey Wasserman seconded both. They each passed unanimously.
