Background Discussion
  • Manatee County Government is seeking a Certified Local Government (CLG) certification from the Florida Division of Historic Preservation and the National Park Service. 
  • The Certified Local Government Program is a preservation partnership between local, state and national governments focused on promoting historic preservation at the local level. 
  • As a Certified Local Government (CLG), local cultural and historic resources, significant to the history of Manatee County, may be granted a locally significant historic landmark designation. The designation provides protection to those sites worthy of preservation.
  • Matching grant funds are available to conduct surveys to identify and evaluate significant historic properties, to fund the preparation of National Register nominations as well as funding development of preservation education materials, publications or other media presentations of the community’s history.
  • Once certified, staff must follow specific performance standards:
     
      •  Provide the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO )with 30 days notice prior to all meetings
      • Submit Minutes and Record of Attendance to SHPO within 30 days after each meeting
      • Notify SHPO within 30 days of any change in  Historic Preservation Board membership
      • Hold a minimum of 4 meetings per year
      • Provide an Annual Report
  • Staff recommends approval.
  • On August 15, 2013, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval. 
  • A summary of the public comments heard at the August 15, 2013 Planning Commission public hearing are in the staff report attached to this memo.
