Based upon the staff report, evidence presented, comments made at the Public Hearing, the action of the Planning Commission, and finding the request to be CONSISTENT with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan and the Manatee County Land Development Code, as conditioned herein, I move to APPROVE Preliminary Site Plan PDC-16-01(P) with Stipulations A.1–A.5, B.1–B.6 and C.1; GRANT Special approval for: 1) a project in the Evers Reservoir Watershed Protection Overlay District; and 2) a project in the Special Treatment Overlay District; ADOPT the Findings for Specific Approval; and GRANT Specific Approval for alternatives to LDC Sections 402.11.D.3 (PDC setback requirement), 531.51.C (Specific Use setback), and 701.3.B.3 (Figure 7-2, roadway buffer width), as recommended by the Planning Commission.
Manatee County Comprehensive Plan
Manatee County Land Development Code
• Mr. Timothy Healey, P.E., from Frontier Engineer Inc., and agent for Hallmark Stations Inc. requests approval of a Preliminary Site Plan to allow construction of a new 3,123 square foot convenience store, a 3,071 square foot canopy over fuel dispensers/gas pumps and 896 square foot carwash on a 0.88± site at 8471 Lockwood Ridge Road.
• The site is at the northeast corner of Lockwood Ridge Road and University Parkway and currently occupied with a convenience store with gas pumps and carwash.
• In 1987, the Board of County Commissioners (B.O.C.C.) approved a rezone of .98± acres from C to PDC (Z-86-78) zoning district and a Preliminary Site Plan (PDC-86-8) to allow a convenience store with gas pumps.
• On March 20, 2008, the Board of County Commissioners approved Preliminary Site Plan [PDC-05-119(P)] to redevelop the site with a new convenience store, canopy, gas pumps and car wash. The new buildings were not constructed and the approval expired in 2013.
• The site is in the R/O/R (Retail/Office/Residential) Future Land Use Category (FLUC). R/O/R FLUC lists retail commercial in the range of potential uses for consideration. Developments in the R/O/R FLUC are not required to meet standards for commercial locational criteria (i.e. located within 1,500 feet of two functionally classified roadways).
• The current PDC zoning is compatible and consistent with the R/O/R FLUC and permits a mix of commercial retail and service uses with Board approval.
• The site is in the Evers Reservoir Watershed Protection and (WP-E) and Special Treatment (ST) Overlay Districts. The intent of a Watershed Overlay District is to protect the quality and quantity of potential and exiting potable water supplies within public surface water reservoirs and their watersheds. The Special Treatment Overlay is to provide additional protection for specific areas of, or resources in, the County that are especially sensitive to or subject to drainage by industrial, mining or major earthmoving activities. This overlay district shall operate in conjunction with the current PDC zoning district for this site. No impact is anticipated with the redevelopment of this site to the Overlay districts.
• The design shows there is an existing entrance connecting Lockwood Ridge Road. There is an existing cross access to the north and east connecting the existing commercial subdivision.
• Twenty-two (22) parking spaces are required and shown on the Preliminary Site Plan. Parking is proposed along the north, south, and west boundaries and west side of the proposed convenience store.
• Sidewalks exists along Lockwood Ridge Road and University Parkway.
• There will be perimeter and interior landscaping around vehicle use areas, as well as landscaping in accordance with LDC Section 701 in perimeter and roadway buffers.
• The project is in the X Flood zone Category. There are no wetlands or known historic or archaeological resources on the site.
• Staff supports the applicant’s requests for the following Specific Approvals: 1) to retain existing reduced roadway buffer widths along Lockwood Ridge Road and University Parkway; and 2) to allow reduced setbacks for the fuel tanks, convenience store and carwash buildings.
• Staff recommends approval with stipulations.
• On July 14, 2016, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
