Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion

• The agent, Rachel Layton, ZNS Engineering, is requesting approval of a General Development Plan for 170 single family semi-detached and detached residential units on an approximately 105.09± acre site.

• The site is generally located west of Erie Road approximately 800 feet southwest of the intersection of Erie Road and 69th Street East (Parrish).

• The site is in the RES-3 (Residential – 3) Future Land Use Category (FLUC) and is zoned PDR (Planned Development Residential).  The applicant proposes a gross residential density of 1.62 dwelling units per acre and a net residential density of 2.08 units per acre which is below the required densities in the RES-3 FLUC.

• Special Approval is required because the site is a perennial stream (southern boundary of the site is adjacent to a County maintained drainage easement identified to be a portion of the Cedar Drain), density is transferred from part of a wetland site to another part of the project, and the site is within the 25 year floodplain.

• Specific Approval is requested for an alternative to Land Development Code Section 706.7.C.1 requiring a uniform-width buffer, Section 1001.4.D.1 requiring cul-de-sacs and dead end streets be limited to a maximum length of 800 feet, Section 1001.6.A.1 requiring sidewalks on both sides of the street for a development within 2 miles of a Public Elementary or Middle School, Section 1001.1.C.3 to allow an alternative design for emergency access to serve as a second means of access, and Section 402.7.D.7 requiring a 25 foot front yard setback.

• Site lies in Zones A, AE and X per FIRM Panels C12081C0178E, effective 3/17/2014.  Furthermore, the site is partially located within the FEMA 100-year floodplain (Zones “A” and “AE”).  Base Flood Elevation varies from 27.27-29.81 feet (NAVD).  Project area is also partially located within the county 25-year floodplain delineation of Cedar Drain. 

• The site has 60.4± acres of wetland and 4.58± acres of stormwater ponds, no impacts are proposed. 

• The site will have one access off Erie Road and one emergency access through 79th Street East.

• Staff recommends approval with stipulations.

• On November 9, 2017, by a vote of 5 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Mr. Rahn was absent and one seat vacant.

• A summary of the public comments heard at the November 9, 2017 Planning Commission public hearing are in the staff report attached to this memo.
