Contact/Presenter: Aaron Burkett, Traffic Operations Division Manager, x7509

Action Requested
Adoption of Ordinance 16-18, amending Section 2-22-22 of the Manatee County Code; instituting and creating additional no stopping, standing, or parking rights-of-way to include 75th Street Northwest; providing for codification; providing for severability; and providing for an effective date.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes, Section 316.008 - Powers of Local Authorities.

Background Discussion
  • Ordinance 16-18, Request for No Parking from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, on both sides of 75th Street Northwest from 8th Avenue Northwest to 9th Avenue Northwest (attached). 
  • The Manatee County School Board has requested installation of No Parking signs on 75th Street Northwest from 8th Avenue Northwest, north 300 feet to 9th Avenue Northwest.
  • The concern is that drivers are picking up and dropping off students along this section of right-of-way during the time period when the reduced speed limit school zone is active and when there is a higher volume of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.  Drivers parking in the location re-enter the roadway making U-turns, creating undesirable conditions for other drivers and pedestrians. Attached is a survey from the nearest neighbor.
  • Restricting parking along this roadway segment during school hours will encourage drivers to use the designated pick up/drop off area on school property.
