Background Discussion

• Heritage Harbour Development of Regional Impact (DRI #24) has 2,784.7± acres.  The mixed use development is generally located at the intersection of I-75 and SR 64, south of the Manatee River.  Parcel 35, which is the subject of this request, is on the west side of Upper Manatee River Road, approximately one mile north of S.R. 64. The site is in the UF-3 Future Land Use Category (FLUC) and PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use) zoning and WP-E/ST(Evers Reservoir Watershed Protection/Special Treatment) Overlay districts.

• Ms. Misty Servia, authorized agent for Manatee Land Investors, LLC, and Upper Manatee 288, LLC (applicants) requests approval to revise the Zoning Ordinance and General Development Plan for Heritage Harbour DRI relative to the subject Parcel 35.  The request is accompanied with a companion revision to the DRI Development Order [Ordinance 16-16] and is as follows:

      1) Add a Land Use Equivalency Matrix (LUEM) applicable only to Parcel 35;
      2) Add Commercial, Retail, Multi-family and Assisted Living Facility (ALF) as potential uses on Parcel 35 (without increasing DRI entitlements); 
      3) Show a numerical range of dwelling units for Parcel 35; 
      4) Realign Port Harbour Parkway Extension through Parcel 35 and corresponding “update of notes”;
      5) Specify the amount and types of development that may be authorized on Parcel 35; including recreational and open space requirements;
      6) Provide flexibility in the separation between multi-family buildings and single-family development parcels; 
      7) Change the front yard setback for Parcel 35 from 25’/20’ to 20’/15’ to be consistent with residential development in the project; 
      8) Remove the requirement for a 30’ buffer along the southern boundary of Parcel 35;  
      9) Remove the requirement for a noise mitigation study for Parcel 35; 
      10) Update wetland information shown on GDP and modify provisions related to wetland buffers and impacts for Parcel 35; and 
      11) Other minor updates, terminology changes, and corrections to reflect previously approved changes and to provide consistency with other approved documents.
Analysis for the listed requests is detailed in the staff report.
