Background Discussion
  • Purpose of this Joint Work Session is to discuss the next round of proposed amendments to the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code.
  • The proposed amendments are recommended to improve the overall land development review processes. 
  • In December of 2016 a “Kick-Off” Work Session was held to present an overview of the subject matter to the BCC.
  • Since that time, the applicant’s consultant reviewed both the Plan and Code, provided staff with memos of their research, conclusions, and recommendations.
  • Staff and the consultant will present, in more detail, the specific subject areas for amendment, which include:
    • Special Approval 
    • Planned Development
    • Clustering
    • Future Land Use/Zoning
    • Mixed Use
    • Sewer Connections
    • Access/Connectivity
  • Staff would like to have an open discussion with the Commissions and discuss the schedule for moving forward.
