The Mathis Report: ETown seeks 121 acres rezoned commercial



People need places to eat, drink, shop, cut their hair and gas up, so eTown is making way to provide such services for the coming influx of residents and visitors.

Owners of the eTown development in Southside are seeking to rezone and change the land use of about 121 acres for commercial development.

Westland Timber LLC, led by President Jed Davis, seeks to rezone property between southwest Interstate 295 and Florida 9B, just north of the western extension of eTown Parkway.

It wants to rezone the land from industrial light to commercial community/general-1.

That allows for a range of uses that include retail sales and services, banks, hotels and motels, day care centers, plant nurseries, gas stations and other uses. Even more uses are possible if an exception is sought.

Eastland Timber LLC owns eTown, a mixed-use development east of I-295 and Florida 9B where homebuilders have purchased property and announced communities.
