Action Requested
Execution of Contract for Sale and Purchase for a Permanent Easement with Park L Weldy and Carol S Weldy for improved sight visibility and increased overall safety of motorists and pedestrians at the intersection of El Conquistador Parkway and Bayside Drive, Bradenton, Florida.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
This voluntary sale and purchase is governed by Section 125.355 of the Florida Statutes.

Background Discussion

On August 13, 2013, the Board voted to install temporary stop signs on the El Conquistador thoroughfare at the Bayside Drive intersection. As a result, Public Works staff conducted a sight visibility review and found conditions could be enhanced by removing vegetation on private property on the southwest corner of the intersection.

In the interest of a long term solution, Manatee County conducted voluntary negotiations with the property owner to obtain a permanent easement at the intersection of El Conquistador Parkway and Bayside Drive in an effort to improve sight visibility and increase the overall safety of motorists and pedestrians at this location. The Contract for Sale and Purchase for a Permanent Easement was obtained as a result of said negotiations.

As a result of obtaining this permanent easement, the temporary stop signs on El Conquistador Parkway should be removed. Public Works staff will be presenting the recommendation during this Board meeting.
