Deer Run Development Plans

Deer run development pre-application

On February 28, 2020, the Planning and Zoning Department of Seminole County received a pre application from Mr. Robert Dello Russo, owner of the land upon which the former Country Club at Deer Run Golf Course sits, asking for zoning changes in order to accommodate a new housing development. 

Mr. Dello Russo has submitted his pre application for development to the county in his own personal name. Mr. Dello Russo’s plan calls for the following:

-Construction of a new neighborhood within the Deer Run Planned Development.

-The new neighborhood will contain 211 single-family homes.

-It will be an ungated community.

-Entrances to new homes will be located off the roads of Fairway Oaks Drive and Daneswood Way.

The next step in the process, if the owner agrees, is to have a sit-down meeting with county staff to review the proposal. This meeting is open to the public. However, the public are ONLY allowed to be present and witness the proceedings. They cannot comment at this point. If the owner chooses to have this meeting, it will occur on Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at the County Services Building in Sanford, Florida. However, the owner can choose to waive his right to attend this meeting. If the owner waives his right to the Development Review meeting, no meeting will be held. Depending on the findings of county staff, the next step in the process is for the preapplication to be resubmitted as an application. Once the county receives an application, a date for it to be reviewed by the Planning and Zoning Board will be set.
