Action Requested

RECOMMENDED MOTION:


Based upon the evidence presented, comments made at the public hearing, the technical support documents and finding the request to be consistent with the Community Planning Act, as codified in applicable portions of Chapter 163, Part II, Florida Statutes, and the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan, I move to recommend Transmittal of Plan Amendment PA14-01, as recommended by staff.



Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion

New Agenda Language:

• One of the recommendations made by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) was that in order to promote successful economic growth there was a need for a greater focus on redevelopment and new development in the southwest quadrant of the County.

• Homes and businesses in the southwest part of the County have aged and the area has lagged behind other areas of the County in terms of growth and development.

• To encourage economic development with a funding source in the southwest area, Manatee County is proposing to create the Southwest Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district under home rule authority.

• The Board of County Commissioners has established two community redevelopment areas (South County CRA and 14th Street West CRA) pursuant to Chapter 163, Part III, Florida Statutes.  The existing community redevelopment areas encompass property located within the Southwest TIF district.

• On January 7, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners made a policy decision to proceed with the creation of the Southwest TIF district and to dissolve both community redevelopment areas.

• The first step in eliminating the community redevelopment areas involves terminating the community redevelopment plans.  This process requires review by the Manatee County Planning Commission (as the local planning agency) for conformity with the County’s comprehensive plan.

• The provisions of the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan that refer to the community redevelopment areas must be repealed before any changes to the community redevelopment plans are considered.

• Manatee County intends to pursue an alternative concurrency and multi-modal approach for transportation throughout the new Southwest TIF district, the Urban Core, as well as the Urban Infill Redevelopment Area (UIRA) located in North County.  These changes will be proposed in the future as County initiated amendments to the Comprehensive Plan.

Previous Agenda Language:

• A recommendation from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) was that in order to promote successful economic growth there was a need to start with a greater focus on redevelopment in the southwest quadrant of the County.

• Homes and businesses in the southwest area of the county have aged and lagged behind other areas of the county in terms of growth and development.

• To encourage redevelopment and provide a funding source in the southwest area, Manatee County is proposing to establish the Southwest (Home Rule) Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district.

• Currently, there are two Community Redevelopment Areas within the proposed SW TIF district boundaries – the South County and the 14th Street West CRA’s.

• The County must dissolve both Community Redevelopment Areas (CRA’s) to create the Southwest Tax Increment Financing District.

• The first step in this task is a Comprehensive Plan text amendment to remove references to and illustrations of the Community Redevelopment Areas (CRA).

• Manatee County will pursue an alternative concurrency and multi-modal approach to the entire SW TIF district, the Urban Core as well as the Urban Infill Redevelopment Area (UIRA) in North County. These changes will be part of future County initiated changes.
