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 APPROVAL of Manatee County Ordinance No. 14-25, as recommended by staff.



Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code



Background Discussion

• With experience from other communities that have been impacted by disasters in recent years, permitting the use of mobile homes and recreational vehicles as temporary dwellings on single family residential properties assists in post-disaster recovery.

• This amendment will allow residents to occupy temporary dwellings on their property during reconstruction of their houses.  This will enable them to continue to experience a sense of community and encourage them to participate in the County’s recovery process.

• Several sections of the Manatee County Land Development Code prohibit mobile homes and recreational vehicles from being occupied or connected to utility service on residential single-family properties in specific zoning districts or as accessory uses.

• Staff recommends the following amendments:

 – Section 201, Definitions
 – Section 705, Temporary Use Criteria
 – Section 604, Exemptions from certain areas within County (Whitfield Overlay, Recreational Vehicle Overlay)

• Finding consistency with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan, staff recommends adoption of the LDC changes as outlined in the staff report.
