A major North Brevard County landowner has gotten county approval for two zoning changes that could lead to new commercial and hotel projects off Interstate 95 in Scottsmoor.

County commissioners unanimously approved the zoning changes for Swallowtail LLC, an affiliated company of the Miami Corp., which controls 11,500 acres in northern Brevard County and 47,000 acres in southern Volusia County in what’s known as the Farmton Tract. The area now is dominated by tree-farming operations.

The Miami Corp.’s long-range plan is to have retail, commercial, industrial and residential development on some of the land, while setting aside other sections of land to be undeveloped, serving as areas for wetlands restoration.

The zoning change affects two parcels west of the I-95 Scottsmoor exit and north of Deering Parkway (County Road 5A), which formerly was known as Stuckway Road.
