Background Discussion
  • Gulfside Homes/Bowlees Creek, LLP, has filed an application for a Preliminary Site Plan for two options:  Option A  -  246 multi-family units including a126-bed (21 units) “Assisted Living Facility” (f.k.a. group care home –LDC) and 53 existing boat slips; Option B  -  246 multi-family units and 53 existing boat slips.  The 19.01 acre site is north of Bowlees Creek, south of 69th Avenue West (Bay Drive), and west of U.S. 41, Bradenton.  The site is zoned PDMU/AI/CH (Planned Development Mixed Use/Airport Impact/ Coastal High Hazard Overlay Districts. 

 

  • On 10/11/2005, a preview meeting was held before the Board of County Commissioners.  At that time 167 units were proposed.  Concerns raised included traffic impacts to Trailer Estates, consideration of existing manufactured homes as affordable housing stock, and reducing density by eliminating one level of some of the buildings proposed.

 

  • On 5/24/2007, the Board of County Commissioners approved a site plan for 155 residential units (159 requested) and 53 boat slips. 

 

  • In 2010, the Board approved a rezone and a Preliminary Site Plan for two options: 1) 144 multi-family dwelling  units, 200 rack dry boat storage, and 53 existing wet slips, or 2) 162 multi-family dwelling units and 53 existing wet slips.

 

  • The site has two Future Land Use Categories (FLUCs); R/O/R (Retail/Office/Residential),  RES-16 (Residential, sixteen dwelling units per acre).  The total number of dwelling units proposed (246) is almost equivalent to the maximum number of dwelling units permitted (247).  Therefore, the project has established gross density compliance with the FLUCs. 

 

  • In accordance with LDC Section 603.7.4.9, the staff report includes an analysis for residential buildings exceeding 35 feet in height.  The maximum height requested is 40 feet.

 

  • The applicant requests Specific Approval to allow conversion of an old accessory structure to a pavilion, reduce the driveway width to 20 feet for access to the peninsular and recreation center, more than ten parking spaces without a terminal island and smaller replacement tree sizes.

 

  • Special Approval is required for a project: 1) exceeding a gross density of six dwelling units per acre in the R/O/R Future Land Use Category; 2) exceeding a net density of nine dwelling units per acre in the R/O/R FLUC; 3) exceeding a gross density of nine dwelling units per acre in RES-16 ; 4)exceeding a net density of 12 dwelling units in the RES-16; 5) in the Coastal Evacuation Area; 6) partially in the Coastal High Hazard Overlay; 7) adjacent to a perennial stream; 8) in the Airport  Impact Overlay District.

 

  • The site is in an A15 Flood Zone.  The Base Flood Elevation is 13 and 14 feet.

 

  • On February 14, 2013, by a vote of 6 - 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval. A summary of public comments from that hearing are in the staff report attached to this memo.
