Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion

• The agent, Rachel Layton, ZNS Engineering, is requesting approval of a Preliminary Site Plan for 84 single family semi-detached residential units on an approximately 37.19± acre site.

• The site is generally located at the northwest corner of Lockwood Ridge Road and 63rd Avenue East, Bradenton (Manatee County).

• The site is in the RES-6 (Residential – 6) Future Land Use Category and zoned PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use).  The applicant proposes a gross residential density of 2.26 dwelling units per acre and a net residential density of 2.93 units per acre which is below the required densities in the RES-6 FLUC.

• Special Approval is required because the site is in the Evers Reservoir Protection Overlay District and density is transferred from part of a wetland site to another part of the project.

• Specific Approval is requested for an alternative to Land Development Code Section 402.7.D.1 requiring a 20’ wide roadway buffer, Section 402.7.D.7 requiring a 25’ front yard setback, and section 706.7.A requiring a uniform width wetland buffer of 30’.

• Site lies in Zone X per FIRM Panel 12081C0317E, effective 3/17/2014.

• The site has 15.95± acres of wetland, no impacts are proposed. 

• The site will have one full access along 63rd Avenue East and one emergency exit along Lockwood Ridge Road.

• Staff recommends approval with stipulations.

• On January 4, 2018, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
