Request No Parking Sign

Zoom

The posting of "No Parking" signs on a Manatee County roadway requires the adoption of an ordinance to that effect by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC).  In order to avoid neighborhood disputes, a petition signed by at least 67% of the abutting property owners is required before the Board of County Commissioners will consider requests of this nature.  A blank petition form supporting the request for "No Parking" signs can be  used in obtaining the necessary signatures.

 

Please return the completed petition form to the Traffic Operations Division, 1022 26th Avenue East, Bradenton, Florida 34208.  An agenda package will then be prepared for the public hearing by the BCC.  Traffic Ordinances are heard quarterly and advertised in a local newspaper.  Comments from the public will be accepted prior to consideration of the ordinance.

 

If you have questions regarding this matter, please contact Mary Moeller at (941) 708-7450 ext. 7283.

Resurfacing
Manatee County paved roads are selected for resurfacing using the following criteria, safety, road condition, drainage, usage and cost effectiveness.  Currently the Public Works Department is in the process of updating our road condition surveys and this condition survey will be one tool used in selecting future resurfacing projects.  If you have a question concerning future resurfacing plans or a question concerning your street, please contact Brian Martineau at (941) 708-7450 ext 7243 or email at Brian.Martineau@mymanatee.org.

 

Interested in getting your road paved?

Manatee County has a program where, via their tax bills, the residents pay for improvements to public roads.  This program is known as the Assessment Program.  Other areas this program covers include reclaimed water, sewer, and streetlighting.  Click for more information on getting your road paved, or contact Sherri Robinson at 941-708-7450 Ext. 7334 or sherri.robinson@mymanatee.org.

Traffic Calming

Traffic Calming is simply the modification of a roadway to discourage cut-through traffic on local residential streets.  It is seen as a long-term goal to redirect traffic to more efficient thoroughfares, allowing neighborhoods to maintain their residential character.

 

Roadway modifications may include, but not be limited to, speed tables, roundabouts, rumble strips, diagonal diverters, modified intersections and/or a combination of two or more treatments.  Traffic Engineering also utilizes a speed monitor board, which is an effective, temporary device to warn motorists of their existing speed.

 

The methodology in requesting traffic calming measures was developed in a Work Session with the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) on January 30, 2001. The first step involves the formation of a working group to identify a need for traffic calming in the Study Area. This step must be taken prior to any further action by the Traffic Engineering Division. 


Once a working group is established by your community, either by your Homeowner's Association or your local group, please e-mail jeff.bishop@mymanatee.org with this information, or call 941-749-3500, Ext. 7815.
