  • An application and review fee is being added under Historic Preservation for the Historic Landmark Designation. Fee will be $1,200 plus advertising costs. The Historic Landmark Designation will require two public hearings. One before the Historic Preservation Board and one before the Board of County Commissioners. The fee is based on an estimated time spent on a project by Planner, County Attorney, and Agenda Coordinator.
  • Adjustment under the Tree Removal/Replacement section.
    • Clarification that no fee may be required for tree removal/replacement on single family lots.
    • Deletion of the fee for tree replacement of a 5" & 7" caliper tree.
    • Proposed increase for tree replacement of 3" & 4" caliper trees.
      • This fee is used for furnishing and installing landscape-sized trees in Manatee County
      • The increased fee assessment is based on the cost of the plant at the nursery and the contractor installation costs for a 3" & 4" caliper tree.
      • The current market cost of trees has experienced a steep increase over the past year.
