Three residential subdivisions and variances to allow them met with unanimous approval from the Levy County Board of County Commissioners on April 8.

Angelina Farms, a 70-acre site outside the Williston Municipal Service District (MSD), was approved. It will be seven 10-acre residential lots.

Harper's Subdivision, a 40-acre site to the east of Chiefland near Levy County Road 134 and CR 320 East, was approved.

It will include four residential lots - ranging in size from 8.8-acres to 9.7-acres.

Golden Oaks, a 14.84-acre site inside the Williston MSD, will have many lots ranging in size between 1.64 acres and 2.32 acres.

In other zoning news, a hardship variance in the Oakdale Heights Subdivision met with unanimous approval.

A son asked the County Commission to allow him to add a mobile home on the 22-acre site where his father and mother live. The father suffers from macro-degeneration, which is taking his ability to see.

One neighbor asked to see the site plan.

After Planning and Zoning Director Rob Corbitt showed the man that the mobile home would be at least 400 feet from his residence, the neighbor said he had no objections.

County Commissioner Lilly Rooks said she commends any person who is willing to help another family member.

Corbitt reminded the family that one of the dwellings must be removed after the hardship situation ends.
