Action Requested

RECOMMENDED MOTION:

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 ADOPT Manatee County Zoning Ordinance No. PDPI-03-21(G)(R2); APPROVE a revised General Development Plan with Stipulations A.1-A.6, B.1, and C.1-C.3; and GRANT Special Approval for a project adjacent to a perennial stream; as recommended by the Planning Commission.

Commissioner Baugh



Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion
  • The request is for approval of a revised General Development Plan for an addition of 320,257 square feet of floor area, increasing the FAR from 0.005 to 0.012 to allow for the construction of projects that are currently planned in the capital improvements program and for future projects that will be needed
  • This 1,169.20 acre site is located at 3333 Lena Road, south of SR 64, east of Lena Road, and west of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard in Bradenton.

History

  • The General Development Plan was originally approved in January of 2004.  Approximately 105.7 acres in the southwest portion of the site was rezoned to PDPI, placing the entire landfill and treatment plant site in one zoning category in August of 2008.
  • On May 3, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners approved revisions to the Land Development Code to allow General Development Plans that are in effect as of January 1, 2012 to have no expiration date.  This GDP was in effect on that date, and therefore has no expiration date.

Request:

  • This GDP includes capital improvements that are included in the capital improvements program and projects that are planned for build out of the landfill and wastewater treatment plant. 
  • Conceptual approval of future projects will enable Utilities and Public Works staff to submit Final Site Plans and Construction Drawings for projects identified on this GDP expeditiously, without requiring future public hearings.
  • The site is currently approved for 293,800 square feet of building area, with a FAR of 0.005. 
  • This plan contemplates the addition of 320,257 square feet of floor area, increasing the FAR to 0.012.  This is still but a fraction of the 1,169+ acre site.
  • Special Approval is required because this site is adjacent to a perennial stream, Cypress Strand. 
  • The southwestern portion of this site is shown to be located within the Evers Watershed Protection Overlay District.  However, watershed analysis information provided by the Public Works department indicates that this property is outside of the Evers Watershed Protection Overlay and does not impact the Evers Reservoir. 
  • Staff recommends approval of the request with stipulations.

Action of Planning Commission: 

  • On June 13, 2013, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
