Manatee County Land Development Code

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan



Background Discussion
  • The site is zoned PDR/NCO (Planned Development Residential/North County Overlay) and within the UF-3 Future Land Use Category (FLUC).
  • The site was rezone from A (General Agriculture) and A-1 (Suburban Agriculture) to PDR (Planned Development Residential) on April 26th, 2005. A Preliminary Site Plan [(PDR-04-09(Z)(P) – Wildcat Preserve Subdivision] was also approved for 146 lots for single-family detached residences with a gross density of 1.63 unit/ acre with a minimum lots size of 9,000 square feet.

The current request is to:

  • Rezone the subject property from PDR/NCO (Planned Development Residential/North Central Overlay) to PDMU (Planned Development Mixes Use) retaining the North Central Overlay zoning district.
  • Approve a Preliminary Site Plan for 242 residential lots for single-family detached residences, and 51,346 square feet of retail and office uses.

The Preliminary Site Plan proposes:

  • The non-residential component of the project at the southwest corner of the site in the areas adjacent to the intersection of Ft. Hamer Road and Golf Course Road, since the residential subdivision is located further east along Golf Course Road and internally to the site.
  • A main roadway entrance that provides access to the residential and non-residential components of the project. A second means of access is provided for the residential subdivision, and two more access points are shown to serve the non-residential portion of the project.
  • The residential subdivision will be a gated community with private roadways. The minimum lot size proposed is 6,250 square feet with a minimum lot width of 50 feet. The proposed density is 2.93 gross and 3.06 net.
  • No design detail is provided for the non-residential component of the project. The compliance with the North Central Overlay Districts regulations will be reviewed at Final Site Plan; however, the proposed height and building setbacks comply with the LDC applicable regulations. The proposed Floor Area Ratio is the maximum allowed in the UF-3 FLUC (0.23).
  • A total of 22.31 acres of open space is proposed (25.47% of the total site).
  • No impacts to wetland or wetland buffers.

Special Approval is required for:  1) a gross density exceeding one dwelling unit per acre in the UF-3 FLUC, 2) a net density exceeding 3.0 dwelling units per acre in the UF-3 FLUC, 3) commercial node designation, 4) exceeding 30,000 square feet of commercial uses in the UF-3 FLUC, and 5) a mixed use project in the UF-3 FLUC. Special Approval may be granted through the planned development process. 

The applicant requests Specific Approval to:  

  • Reduce agricultural setback to allow a 35-foot separation between residential building and active agriculture use (LDC Section 702.6.7).
  • Reduced greenbelt buffer width from 20 feet to 15 feet along the east and northeast property boundaries (LDC Section 604.10.3.6).
  • Allow understory trees in lieu of canopy trees within the portion of the greenbelt that abuts Gamble Creek Estates (LDC Section 604.10.3.6).
  • Allow sidewalks on one side of internal roadways (LDC Section 722.1.4.3).
  • Reduction in finish floor elevations (LDC Section 702.9.1.B.1).
  • Reduced replacement tree sizes (LDC Section 714.8.7).
  • Design standards, minimum setback from roadway and greenbelt buffer for building, swimming pools, cage pools (LDC Section 604.10.3.3.k)
  • Staff supports all requested Specific Approval,
  • Staff recommends approval subject to the recommended stipulations.
  • On June 13, 2013, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
  • A summary of the public comments from the June 13, 2013 Planning Commission public hearing are in the staff report attached to this memo.
