Background Discussion

• Phillip Locke, P.E., McKim & Creed, agent for the owner, is requesting approval of a rezoning of a 4.52 acre parcel from A (General Agriculture – 1 dwelling unit per 5 acres) to PDPI (Planned Development Public Interest) and approval of a General Development Plan for the 137 acre Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant. 

• The General Development Plan is for the entire Lake Manatee Water Treatment Plant facility and includes the following improvements over a 15-year period:

• Biological filter building, plant drain pump station, and backwash pond/tank;

• Chemical feed building and neutralization tank

• Sludge pond, drying bed, ground storage tank or maintenance facility, pump station, and ground water treatment expansion.

• The proposed improvement are to enhance the quality of the potable water delivered to Manatee County customers.  The proposed improvements will not increase plant capacity or staffing requirements.

• Specific Approval - LDC Section 531.54.D.3 Standards for Utility Uses and LDC Section 701 Landscaping and Screening Standards.  The justifications for these Specific Approvals include:

• Security of the water treatment plant

• Conflicts with existing underground utility lines

• Existing buffers to adjacent properties. Staff has reviewed the requests for Specific Approval and recommends the requests.

• The project currently provides 83% open space (128.5± acres); the minimum established open space is 30%.

• The Floor Area Ratio (FAR) for the project is 0.063 which is an appropriate FAR for the area.

• On June 11, 2015, by a vote of 6 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
