Background Discussion

On December 17, 2002, the Board of County Commissioners enacted Ordinance No. 02-68 which approved and adopted a community redevelopment plan for South County community redevelopment area. On January 10, 2006, and June 20, 2006, the Board of County Commissioners enacted Ordinance No. 06-23 and Ordinance No. 06-50, respectively, which approved and adopted amendments to the community redevelopment plan for South County community redevelopment area.

On January 7, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners voted to authorize County staff to prepare the necessary documents to dissolve the existing South County community redevelopment area and establish a new Southwest County Improvement District. On June 3, 2014, the Commission adopted Ordinance No. 14-28 creating the District effective October 1, 2014.

Dissolving the community redevelopment area requires Manatee County to repeal and rescind Ordinance No. 02-68, Ordinance No. 06-23, and Ordinance No. 06-50 and terminate the community redevelopment plan for South County community redevelopment area.

On September 11, 2014, the Manatee County Planning Commission reviewed the proposed repeal and termination of the community redevelopment plan for conformity with the Manatee County comprehensive plan. The Planning Commission recommended that the repeal and termination of the community redevelopment plan for South County community redevelopment area is consistent with and in conformity with the comprehensive plan. Attached is a letter containing written recommendations from the Planning Commission.

The Community Redevelopment Agency must consider the proposed repeal and termination of the community redevelopment plan and provide recommendations to the governing body and the taxing authorities within the community redevelopment area. Attached are letters to the taxing authorities within the South County community redevelopment area recommending approval of the repeal and termination of the community redevelopment plan.

The Board of County Commissioners as the governing body must hold a public hearing on the proposed repeal and termination of the community redevelopment plan. The public hearing is scheduled for October 2, 2014.
