North Central Overlay Community Input

North Central Overlay Community Input Meeting
Posted on 02/04/2021
Residents living in and around Parrish, as well as other interested parties, are invited to a public virtual meeting taking place Thursday, February 11, to review and provide input about the North Central Overlay (NCO).

Established in 2005, the North Central Overlay District zone’s purpose is to promote development that is harmonious with the existing community and in accordance with the community’s vision. Specifically, its purpose, as stated in the Manatee County Land Development Code (403.12), is the following:

  1. Preserve the look and feel of the North Central area which has been described by the community as “green,” “open,” “quiet,” “natural,” and “agricultural” as the community transitions in the manner anticipated by the Comprehensive Plan;
  2. Strive for development that is visually attractive, compatible with the existing rural components of the community, harmonious with a small town atmosphere and the residential character of the area and respectful of the natural environment;

  3. Utilize characteristics of the existing landscape in the area such as clusters of native trees and vegetative screening to soften the appearance of new development;

  4. Promote the incremental development of a multi-use trail network connecting neighborhoods, parks, schools, shopping, and other community focal points by providing development incentives; and

  5. Provide for safe and convenient pedestrian circulation and provide standards for building placement that will aid in enhancing the pedestrian qualities of development.
Full details about the overlay code, including exemptions and design standards

Manatee County staff will provide a presentation, followed by a Q&A session.
