Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion

• Mr. John Cavoli, agent for North River Land LV, LLC/Travis 55, requests approval of a rezone of approximately 55.19 acres from A-1/NCO (Agricultural Suburban - One dwelling unit per acre/North Central Overlay District) to PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use) zoning district; retaining the North Central Overlay District; and a General Development Plan for 156 lots for single-family semi-detached residences and a three-acre neighborhood retail or office site for Option A, or 164 lots for single-family semi-detached residences in Option B.

• The site is at the northeast corner of Mulholland Road and Fort Hamer Road.  The site is in the North Central Overlay District and subject to all applicable requirements listed in LDC Section 403.12. 

• The site is in the UF-3 (Urban Fringe-three dwelling units per acre) Future Land Use Category (FLUC).  UF-3 FLUC lists suburban or urban residential uses, and retail, wholesale or office commercial uses neighborhood or community serving, in the range of potential uses for consideration.  Special Approval is required for a mixed use project in Option A, a project in Parrish requiring a commercial node at the corner of Fort Hammer Road and Mulholland Road, a project exceeding a gross density (2.99 dwelling units per acre) of one dwelling unit per acre and net density (3.89) of three dwelling units per acre in UF-3 FLUC.

• The Manatee County Comprehensive Plan defines ‘Retail Uses-Neighborhood’ as, “Commercial establishments, or groupings thereof, that serve the commercial needs of the neighborhood (e.g. food stores, convenience stores, drug stores, restaurants).  The uses may also include office uses for personal or professional services”

• To be considered for commercial development, Manatee County Comprehensive Plan Land Use Operative Provision, E, requires any site in UF-3 FLUC to be a minimum of 1,500 feet from an intersection of two functional-classified roadways. 

• The site has frontage on Fort Hamer Road (Arterial) and Mulholland Road (Collector).  Additionally, Manatee County Comprehensive Plan Table 5-1, requires Special Approval by the Board of County Commissioners for a commercial node designation at this location.  If approval is granted, the site will meet commercial locational criteria and is then eligible for commercial development. 

• Planned development is the process necessary to achieve Special Approval. Planned development zoning also provides greater flexibility for the project when establishing appropriate buffers and setbacks to help mitigate potential adverse impacts.
 
• The site is in the A, and X Flood Zone Categories (FIRM Panel 12081C0195E, effective March 17, 2014). No impacts are proposed to the 7.053± acres of wetlands.

• The Land Development Code (LDC) requires two means of access for a project with more than 100 units.  The General Development Plan shows access via a boulevard entrance connecting Fort Hamer Road and an emergency access connecting an existing roadway in Chelsea Oaks Subdivision to the east.
  
• Schools servicing this site are Williams Elementary, Buffalo Creek Middle and Palmetto High schools.

• There are 50-foot wide landscaped roadway buffers proposed to be installed along Fort Hamer Road and Mulholland Road which meet the requirements of the North Central Overlay District and will help to alleviate any potential noise impacts from vehicles travelling on Fort Hamer Road and Mulholland Road.  The required 20-foot wide landscaped perimeter buffer is proposed along the northern and eastern boundaries adjacent to residential lots in Chelsea Oaks Subdivision.

• Staff recommends approval with stipulations.

• Planning Commission hearing was held on September 10, 2015.  The Planning Commission by a vote of 3-2 recommended approval of Option B for 164 single-family semi-detached residences, an explanation regarding vote is in staff report attached to this memo. 

• A summary of the public comments heard at the September 10, 2015 Planning Commission public hearing are attached to this memo.
