4-home community in Historic Ocala presenting final plat to city officials

The developer of a 4-home subdivision in the city’s Historic District whose plans were approved by the Ocala City Council earlier this year, is seeking preliminary approval from planning and zoning officials for the community’s final plat.

The matter will be presented to the Ocala Planning and Zoning Commission during its regular meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 10, at Ocala City Hall (110 SE Watula Ave).

The final plat, which was prepared by Moorhead Engineering, shows that the property will be split into two tracts: Tract A will be a privately maintained right of way for access to the individual lots, while Tract B will be reserved for parking, utility easements, drainage easement, and common area for the benefit of the community.

The tracts will be maintained by a CampAlto Property Owners Association., according to city records.

Located along SE Ninth Avenue in Ocala’s Historic District, CampAlto is being developed by Drake Construction Services, which is owned by Holland Drake and his sons, Kendall and Dylan.

In April, Ocala City Council members approved a developer’s agreement that calls for the construction of four, 3,600-square-foot, 3-story homes at the property.

Each home will be situated on lots between .12 and .14 acres in size. According to the agreement, the homes in the subdivision will feature multiple modern amenities including cocktail pools, courtyards, lanais, and even elevators.

After the PZA recommends approval or denial of the final plat, it will be presented to the Ocala City Council during its regular meeting on July 2.

The plat must be recorded before a certificate of occupancy for the residences can be issued to the community, according to city records.

Drake Construction Services is headquartered at 302 Broadway, which it built, and is responsible for developing or restoring multiple properties in downtown Ocala, including Bank Street Patio Bar and Ivy on the Square.
