On June 11, 2013, the Alachua County commissioners unanimously approved ISKCON of Alachua’s petition for a Planned Development zoning on 86 acres of our property. They also approved the Master Plan which was submitted with the petition. The Master Plan was created by a group of 22 devotees who met together several times to discuss the New Raman Reti project and Srila Prabhupada’s mandate. We were joined by Civil Engineer and Planner Jay Brown to help us take into consideration what the county would and would not allow. In this way, we laid out what we would like to have here and what might be acceptable if the zoning could be changed. With this new zoning we have been approved to:

  • Improve/upgrade any existing home on the property
  • Add one more residence on the property
  • Build two lodges with 25 rooms each
  • Build 23 cottages for guests/short term stays
  • Build a conference center
  • Build a larger temple building
  • Build administrative buildings
  • Bhaktivedanta Academy is approved for up to 20,000 square feet of indoor space and up to 120 students

Any new construction must still go through the often grueling Development Review Committee process, but we’re getting better at that; and we know what to expect. In conjunction with the development of our Eco Teaching Farm, we plan to meet with permaculture experts to discuss the best placement and layout for our cottages and gardens. Sometime in the next couple of months, we will try to put together an Istaghosti to roll out the Master Plan and some of the phasing ideas we are looking at.

I can not see children’s playground. Is that also included in new masterplan? Alachua community has large number of small kids but no facilities for them, not even playground. Are you reconsidering it?
