Action Requested

RECOMMENDED MOTION:

Based upon the staff report, evidence presented, comments made at the Public hearing, and finding the request to be CONSISTENT with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan, I move to recommend ADOPTION of Manatee County Ordinance 14-02 fka 13-40, amending the Manatee County Land Development Code (Ordinance 90-01, as amended), as recommended by staff.
 



Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion

• The Land Development Code requires private improvements within a subdivision to have a security bond to cover 200% the cost of construction plus a 3% administrative fee.

• With the down turn in the economy and tighter lending regulations, developers are not able to secure such a large bond from financial institutions.

• Staff recommends the security performance for private improvements be equal to the percentage required for public improvements which is 130% of the current cost of construction.

• Staff also recommends the wetland mitigation security bond be increased from the current 115% to equal the same percent required for public/private improvements (130%). The additional percent represents the cost estimate plus the addition of potential CIP adjustments, project contingency and indirect costs.

• The procedural requirements for installation and bonding of subdivision improvements is being removed from Section 722.3 and put back in Chapter 9 - Subdivision Standards with a new Section 910.
