Request by yoga studio to open in Ponte Vedra under county’s review


A request filed by Titanium Yoga Studio to open on Solana Road in Ponte Vedra is currently under review with St. Johns County, according to Planning and Zoning official Beverly Frazier. 

The studio has submitted a minor modification request to the Ponte Vedra Parke Planned Unit Development (PUD) to utilize an existing unit at 111 Solana Road, but their proposal must be compatible with the district's comprehensive plan to be eligible for approval, said Frazier.

The county official stated in an email to the Recorder that commercial recreation use is "not permitted by right" in the Planned Unit Development (PUD) Master Development Plan, and it requires "review and approval" by the Ponte Vedra Zoning and Adjustment Board (PVZAB). The review process determines the potential effects of planned projects on the surrounding area.

The PVZAB will approve the minor modification request if the proposal aligns with St. Johns County's Comprehensive Plan, Ponte Vedra Zoning District Regulations or Land Development Code. It must also not pose a burden or negative impact on surrounding facilities or services.

A hearing in front of the PVZAB is scheduled to take place Feb. 5 to determine the outcome of the application. The board hears items that are within the Ponte Vedra zoning district.

As of Jan. 23, Frazier said a site visit has been completed and Titanium Yoga Studio has been communicating with surrounding businesses/property owners about its project.

The proposed hours of the studio are seven days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
