The Apopka Planning Commission voted unanimously, 7-0, to recommend approval of a future land-use amendment for the large-scale development proposed in Errol Estate.
More than 400 residents packed the Apopka Community Center to listen in and comment on the proposed “New Errol” master plan at the Tuesday, July 25, Planning Commission meeting.
The public hearing specifically covered a proposal to have the zoning category of a few parcels at Errol Estate changed from park and recreation to planned unit development on an estimated 79 acres.
The proposed New Errol development includes 261 new residential homes, a senior campus (180-bed assisted living facility and 60-bed post-acute rehabilitation unit), a community water park, an 18-hole championship caliber golf course, a new clubhouse and lodge with a restaurant and bar, and a 40-room hotel. Also planned is a new entryway and roadway constructed off of Vick Road.
