Action Requested
Authorization for Chairman to execute Final Authorization of Road Impact Fee Credit in the total amount of $137,471.50 for payment in lieu of construction of required non-site-related road improvements, per Credit Authorization CA-07-03(T).

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Manatee County Comprehensive Plan, Section 5.1, Traffic Circulation Element / Future Major Roadways

Land Development Code, Chapter 8, Impact Fees / Section 807, Credits

Background Discussion
Chapter 8, Section 807 of the Manatee County Land Development Code provides for authorization by the Board of County Commissioners for Impact Fee Credits for contributions, payments, construction, or dedications made to Manatee County against applicable components of impact fees.

Development approvals granted in April 2005 to Twin Rivers II, Phases II and IV, required them to complete several improvements at the intersection of US Highway 301 and Fort Hamer Road in northeastern Manatee County.  In lieu of building these improvements, which were deemed to be impact fee creditable, Twin Rivers paid $143,500.00 to the County.  $6,028.50, the cost of signalizing the intersection, was deducted from the payment, leaving a creditable total of $137,471.50. 

Staff employed by Manatee County at the time of these payments was under the impression that no Board approval was required in order to authorize Twin Rivers’ road impact fee credits.  However, current staff believes that Board approval of all impact fee credits is mandated by the Manatee County Land Development Code, a view that is supported by the Clerk of Court’s Internal Audit Department.  Staff is therefore referring this application for road impact fee credits to the Board for their review and approval, in accordance with Section 807 of the Land Development Code.
