LAND USE NEWS
KCA LAND USE UPDATE
by Clara Lawhead, Chair
1. RZ-STD 23-0443- Rezoning Hearing Date: 07/24/2023, Time: 6:00 PM. The site at the SW Corner of Racetrack Rd / Gunn Hwy is currently zoned RSC-2 with 2.3 acres +/- . It has a Future Land Use designation of Residential-1 (RES-1), which allows for up to 1 dwelling unit per gross acre and is seeking commercial zoning. The County found the original application to be inconsistent and on June 8, 2023 found the new application inconsistent. A letter to the county on behalf of KCA was submitted to be included in Optix.
***Please Note ** Continuance Request:
MM 23-0443 (Gunn and Racetrack Road) the agent on behalf of the owner has submitted to the County a request to continue this application for 30 days. That has also been communicated to Ms. Lawhead directly by the project applicant. The purpose of the continuance is to continue to try and meet the expectations and concerns of the citizens and also to possibly modify the rezoning that has been requested.
As the County zoning staff has been made aware of this continuance request, the continuance for 30 days can only be approved by the Zoning Hearing Master this Monday evening. But as stated, it is the applicant’s request and direction that the continuance be considered and approved to the August 21st Zoning Hearing Master.
2. RZ PD 22-1638 has been continued to August 21, 2023 ZHM hearing at 6:00 p.m. This is the proposed support center at Gunn Hwy/Wayne Rd. The county has found this petition to be inconsistent. A letter to the county on behalf of KCA was submitted and is included in Optix. The applicant will present his revised plan again on July 27, 2023 for Questions and Answers attendance button is noted above in announcements.
3. SU-LE 23-0498 - This permit request will go directly to the Board of County Commissioners on September 12, 2023 (changed from August 8) at 9:00 AM 2nd Floor County Center 601 E. Kennedy Blvd. Tampa 33602 (virtual participation is available) . The application is for land excavation shall be limited for the removal of a maximum of 3.3 million cubic yards of material, subject to approval of a Land Excavation Operating Permit in accordance with LDC, Part 8.01.00. The property is owned by Stephen Dibbs and is located on Lutz Lake Fern Road just west of the Suncoast Hwy. If you are interested in learning more on this subject, the Community holds Zoom meetings on various Sundays at 4:00 PM. Members wishing to attend may request to be a guest 24 hours in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org
Current Variance requests in place are:
1. VAR-23-0602 – Application to be heard at the July 31, 2023 Land Use Hearing Officer Meeting at 10:00 AM. 18430 Wayne Road, Odessa, Variance for fence height in front of the property from 4’ to 6’.
2. VAR-23-0602 - The applicant requests a height variance to accommodate a proposed fence on property zoned ASC-1. VARIANCE(S): Fence Requirements Per LDC Section 6.07.02.C.2, fences in agricultural districts shall be regulated in the same manner as fences in residential districts, except under certain circumstances that do not apply to this case. Per LDC Section 6.07.02.C.1.a, a maximum height of 4 feet is permitted for fences in required front yards, except under certain circumstances that do not apply to this case. The applicant requests a 2-foot increase to the maximum permitted height to allow a height of 6 feet for a proposed fence in the required 50-foot front yard on the east side of the parcel along Wayne Road. FINDINGS: • A minimum lot width of 150’ is required in the ASC-1 district. The subject lot is approximately 121’ in width and therefore is nonconforming. However, it has been certified as a legal nonconforming lot, per NCL 17-0412 in the case record.
3. VAR-23-0395 - (Hearing date is TBD) The perimeter wall requested by the owners of the parcel at the eastern side of Gunn and Tarpon Springs Rd. has been rejected and the party must wait one year (August 2023) to reapply. This application is applying again to install an 8’ fence entirely surrounding the 33.57 acre estate property on Gunn Hwy and Tarpon Springs Road. The current Land Development Code allows for 4’ fence in front and 6’ fence on the sides of the property.

The Rewind: June TPO Board Meeting & TIP Public Hearing recap
The TPO Board entertained one general action item - narrowing the list of TPO Executive Director candidates to four to continue in the selection process. During the Public Hearing, the Board heard the report and public comment on the Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) for FY24 – FY28 before considering approval of the TIP.
Community works together to implement Safe Routes to School
In 2018, the TPO conducted a Safe Routes to School study in conjunction with the School Transportation Working Group (STWG). The study resulted in a variety of recommendations that can be implemented at schools throughout Hillsborough County. Plant High School and Roosevelt Elementary are two schools that have implemented several of these recommendations.

Prepare for our Florida Storm Season
Submitted By: K. Wloch, ERC Chair
Be ready for hurricane season. Take action TODAY to be better prepared for when the worst happens. Understand your risk from hurricanes, and begin pre-season preparations now. Make sure you understand how to interpret forecasts and alerts, and know what to do before, during, and after a storm. If you live in hurricane-prone areas, you are encouraged to prepare before hurricane season begins on June 1.
Know Your Risk: Water & Wind
Find out today what types of wind and water hazards could happen where you live. Hurricanes are not just a coastal problem. Impacts from wind and water can be felt hundreds of miles inland, and significant impacts can occur regardless of the storm’s strength. Know if you live in an area prone to flooding, if you live in an evacuation zone, and identify any structural weaknesses in your home.
Consider Your Threats While hurricanes pose the greatest threat to life and property, tropical storms and tropical depressions also can be devastating. The primary hazards from tropical cyclones (which include tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes) are storm surge flooding, inland flooding from heavy rains, destructive winds, tornadoes, and high surf and rip currents.
Storm surge is water that is pushed toward the shore by winds swirling around the storm, and historically has caused the largest loss of life in hurricanes. This rise in water level can cause severe flooding in coastal areas, which can submerge entire areas, cause structural damage to buildings, and wash out roads. Storm surge can travel several miles inland, especially along bays, rivers, and estuaries.
Flooding from the extreme amounts of rain a hurricane can bring has also proven to be very deadly, both over an extended period of time as well as very short-term flash flooding. Homes and businesses could flood, and flooded roads could make travel and evacuations difficult, as well as being a potentially deadly hazard to those in vehicles or on foot. Floodwaters can also contain harmful bacteria, chemicals, wildlife and other dangerous objects. Extreme rain from hurricanes can even flood areas that aren’t normally prone to flooding. Flooding can happen hundreds of miles inland, and can persist for several days after a storm.
Hurricane-force winds can cause damage to homes and other buildings, ranging from moderate to catastrophic depending on both wind speed and structural integrity. Wind damage can lead to large areas with power and communications outages, as well as uproot trees and make roads impassable due to debris. Signs, roofing material, and other items left outside can become flying missiles during hurricanes. Mobile homes are especially vulnerable to wind damage.
Hurricanes and tropical storms can also produce tornadoes. These tornadoes most often occur in thunderstorms embedded in rain bands well away from the center of the hurricane; however, they can also occur near the eyewall.
Waves from distant storms can produce deadly rip currents and rough surf on beaches very far away. Good weather at the beach itself does NOT mean the ocean is safe. Even storms more than 1,000 miles away can cause impacts.
Determine if you live in a flood-prone area Anyone living in a flood-prone area is especially vulnerable to hurricane impacts. Find out today the flood risk for your area and plan accordingly. If you don’t live in a flood zone, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’re safe - extreme rain from hurricanes can bring floods even to areas that aren’t prone to flooding.
Find out if you live in an evacuation zone Determine if you live in a storm surge evacuation zone. This can tell you about your vulnerability to storm surge, and will be imperative when it comes time to develop an evacuation plan.
Identify your home’s structural risks Find out if your home has any weaknesses that could prove deadly in a hurricane. Are your exterior doors and garage door hurricane proof? Do you have storm shutters? Some aspects of your home can be strengthened to help withstand hurricane impacts, and some can not. Mobile homes are especially vulnerable to hurricane-force winds, and basements are especially vulnerable to storm surge and flooding. Additional Resources:
Disaster Kit Checklist
Storm / Hurricane Season Preparedness Tips
by C. Leonard (repost )
Herein this article are some tips and information shared on what you can do to prepare. County information is included below for Shelter information.
Tip #1: Protect your Large or Small Animals : Now is the time to prepare, purchase items of necessities for home or farm in case of power outages etc. Prepare for your animals / shelters, protection in the event of flooding if known in your area. It is recommended to develop an emergency “plan”. Collaborate with your neighbors for any scenario. Know where you can move your horses, large or small animals, by reaching out to resources within our communities, local barns, veterinarian, etc. Assure food is stored in a high dry places in case of flood, use pallets to keep food or hay off ground etc. Have plenty of water stocked in case of electricity down time if you have a well. Suggested use plastic barrels to hold rain water is a great resource or unused tubs, coolers. Assure to have emergency medical supply kits ready in water tight containers in case of injuries. Appropriate veterinary medications etc.
Tip #2: Assemble Emergency Supplies for Home & Food for at least 5-7 days: Have plenty of non perishable Food and Water on hand. Fill bath tubs for use of toilets and washing. Baby Formulas/ Foods and supplies. Manual Bottle opener. Outdoor grill Propane/Charcoal, Cooler/Ice, Batteries, Battery operated Radio, Portable Device Electronic Charger, charged at all times. Flashlights, Chlorine disinfectant cleaner, Garbage bags, Medical Supplies, Refilled Medications (stock at least 60 days supply). Important Papers in water sealable bag such as : Home Insurance, Wills/Trusts, Birth Certificates, Health Insurance, Deeds, anything of value not replaceable. Your washing machine is also a great place to store photo albums or special items. Get Extra Cash Now. Insect Repellent. If you have trouble with local pharmacies on your medications, there are alternates you can call for deliveries. Sand Bags, Wood for windows/doors. Generator. Tip #3: Assist/Protect Elderly/Disabled Neighbors: If you know of elderly or disabled neighbors, please include them in your neighborhood emergency plan, help guide them to prepare. Assure they have plenty of food, water, medications, and special needs are met. Prepare medication and physician lists. If in a flood zone, assist them to schedule pick up to a local shelter. Protect elderly if they do not have family around. If assistance is needed please contact our main KCA number for the Emergency Response team to do best to assist collaboratively.

County Shelter Locations
Shelters/ Evacuations: Hillsborough County Shelters are opened on an “as-needed” basis depending on the emergency. To stay informed on shelter locations and opening notifications, sign up for HCFL Alert. Openings will vary with each emergency.
The County operates 3 types of shelters during an emergency: (See included links for more info)
General Population Emergency Shelters
Pet Friendly Emergency Shelters
Special Needs Shelters : Sign Up Now! Click Here
Locations Defined by County:
General Population Emergency Shelters : These shelters are intended to provide immediate protection and save the lives of those in the path of a catastrophic and deadly storm. It’s important to have a plan – shelters are not resorts. If you do need to shelter in a County evacuation shelter keep in mind:
Evacuation shelters will not have cots, blankets or food for residents.
Bring water: one gallon per person, per day , Food: non-perishable, easy-to-prepare items, Bedding: pillows and blankets, Medications, medical items and supplies (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, etc.), Sanitation and personal hygiene items, Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers)
If you have specific comfort needs (i.e. special dietary or snacks), plan to get those items ahead of time.
Don't bring alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, weapons
Pet Friendly Emergency Shelters - For information about pet sheltering contact Pet Resources at (813) 744-5660.
Hillsborough County offers eight (8) pet friendly shelters. To shelter your pet in case of emergency you must bring:
Proof of current rabies vaccination and license for dogs and cats
Pet must be on a leash or in a carrier
A crate large enough for your pet to stand up and turn around. Cats need a crate large enough to contain litter and food/water
Bring all pet supplies to include: crate, food, water, litter, treats, cleaning supplies, medicines, etc.
You are responsible for the care of your pet while in the shelter
Cohabitation of pets and owners is not permitted
If you are unable to meet these requirements, please make other arrangements to shelter your pet. Learn more about pet disaster planning.
Link to Pet safety planning for a hurricane or other natural disaster: https://www.cdc.gov/healthypets/keeping-pets-and-people-healthy/emergencies.html
Special Needs Shelters - We highly encourage to bring one caregiver to assist you at the shelter. All special needs shelters are pet friendly.
The County provides special needs shelters for residents whose medical condition may require the use of electrical equipment, oxygen, dialysis, or individuals with physical, cognitive, or medical conditions that may require assistance from medical professionals. Although special needs shelters provide more care than a general shelter, they DO NOT provide continuous bedside nursing, only assistance with daily functions and medical monitoring. What to bring to a special needs shelter: Bring your own medical equipment, special dietary foods, and supplies, including: medications, list of medications, wound care supplies, bedding, towel/washcloth, change of clothing, wheelchair/walker, personal hygiene items (soap, toothbrush, adult diapers, etc.).
If you believe you or someone you know may need a special needs shelter it is highly recommended you pre-register for the Special Needs Shelter Program before hurricane season. Follow these instructions to register for a special needs shelter.

Did You Know...
Cayenne and other Peppers (Capsaicin) could melt away pounds
By C. Leonard
(resource: The Kitchen Table)
This Spicy seasoning varieties of Peppers could melt away pounds!
Losing weight could be as easy as turning up the heat in the meals you already eat. Cayenne, chili pepper, banana peppers, jalapenos ~ they all pack the fiery-hot compound capsaicin. Adding spice to your meals could prevent future weight gain and fight the flab.
Experts used to think cayenne. and other capsaicin seasonings could help you eat less. That's true in the short-term. Rats fed red pepper in their food eat less food the first few days but 10 days later are eating their normal amount of food again. The effect on appetite may not last, but capsaicin can still keep you trim and prevent obesity-related illness in three important ways.
1) Boosting the amount of calcium inside your fat cells. Calcium regulates the development of fat cells, and high levels squash their growth. In tests rats fed high-fat diets with capsaicin added didn't gain weight, whereas rats on high-fat diets without capsaicin became very obese.
2) Putting a lid on the amount of Bcl-2 in cells. The same protein that keeps cancer cells from dying also protects fat cells from the same fate. Capsaicin suppresses Bcl-2 and increases levels of Bax and Bak in cells, two proteins that trigger the death of fat cells. It is said that Capsaicin will also protect one from cancer cells growth in the mitochondria of that cell.
3) Increasing the amount of adiponectin in fat cells. This chemical protects you against inflammation, atherosclerosis, and diabetes, all obesity-related complications.
Experts have shared eating a typical Indian or Thai diet, laden with chili pepper spices, should provide you with enough capsaicin. to get these benefits. Get adventurous in the kitchen and start experimenting with exotic, spicy recipes with what your digestion can handle. You have nothing to lose but inches!
Definitions: Adiponectin is a hormone your adipose (fat) tissue releases that helps with insulin sensitivity and inflammation. Low levels of adiponectin are associated with several conditions, including obesity, Type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis/. Mitochondria are membrane-bound cell organelles (mitochondrion, singular) that generate most of the chemical energy needed to power the cell's biochemical reactions. Chemical energy produced by the mitochondria is stored in a small molecule called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Mitochondria contain their own small chromosomes. Generally, mitochondria, and therefore mitochondrial DNA, are inherited only from the mother.
It's a very Hot Summer but there is still FUN to be had!
