Action Requested


Based upon the staff report, evidence presented, comments made at the Public Hearing, and finding the request to be CONSISTENT with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan and in accordance with Section 341 of the Land Development Code, I move to recommend ADOPTION of Ordinance 20-34, amending the Manatee County Code of Ordinances, as recommended by staff.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion
  • Sections 106.3.A, 370 and 402.5 of the Land Development Code includes language that requires clarification or is otherwise inconsistent with other provisions of the LDC. The County Attorney's Office has recommended amendments to these sections to clarify them.
  • Land Development Code Section 106.3.A will be amended to clarify that it does not authorize lawsuits by third parties against the County to require the County to enforce and Land Development Code. This is consistent with intent of Section 106.3.A and court decisions.
  • Land Development Code Section 370 will be amended to clarify that "any aggrieved person" may file an appeal of an administrative decision under the LDC. This is consistent with the intent of Section 370 and the historical interpretation of this Section by County staff.
  • Land Development Code Section 402.5 will be amended to authorize interpretations of uses in planned development districts in the same manner as interpretations of uses in "straight zoning" district. This is consistent with the intent of Section 402.5 and the historical interpretation of this Section by County Staff.
  • Staff recommends adoption.
