Background Discussion
  • The request is to rezone 149.18 ± acres on the west side of 99th Street N.W., and west of 9th Avenue N.W. at 1704 99th Street N.W., Bradenton, from PDR (Planned Development residential) to CON (Conservation). 
  • The site is in the RES-1 (Residential, one dwelling unit per acre) Future Land Use Category (FLUC).  The proposed CON zoning district is consistent with the RES-1 FLUC.  
  • There are no wetlands or wetland impacts associated with this request.  There are no known historic or archaeological resources on the site.  The site is in the A11, BFE 10’, A12 BFE 10’ & 11’, A13 BFE 10’ Flood Zone Categories.  
  • Special Approvals are required for a project adjacent to a perennial stream, in the Coastal Evacuation Area, and the Coastal High Hazard Area.  The Special Approvals will be requested with the Environmental Preserve Management Plan (EPMP) to be approved by the Board of County Commissioners on 9/5/13, concurrent with the rezone request.
  • The CON zoning district is consistent with the community character of the immediate neighborhood and will allow more passive recreational amenities including an educational environmental discovery center for nearby residents and visitors.  Additionally, Manatee County will be able to maintain and restore natural habitats. 
  • Staff recommends approval.
  • On August 15, 2013, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
  • This is the first of two required public hearings; the second public hearing is scheduled for September 5, 2013.
