Florida Statute, Chapters 166.041 - Procedures for Adoption of Ordinances and Resolutions, and 316.008 - Powers of Local Authorities

Background Discussion
  • Ordinance 16-36, request for No Parking from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., on school days, on 71st Street Northwest, east side only, from 5th Avenue Northwest to 8th Avenue Northwest (attached).
  • The Manatee County School Board has requested the No Parking signs adjacent to Palma Sola Elementary School on 71st Street Northwest be changed to reflect the current school times.
  • Because school times are subject to change from year to year and the daily school times schedule includes early release days, staff recommends adopting one time period for this restriction to ensure all school times are covered should any future schedule changes occur.
  • Amending the Ordinance will ensure the parking restriction along this roadway segment reflects appropriate school times and encourages drivers to use the designated pickup/drop off area on school property.
  • Public Works' staff has coordinated with the County Attorney's Office to draft Ordinance 16-36, No Parking on 71st Street Northwest, east side only, from 5th Avenue Northwest to 8th Avenue Northwest.
  • Public Works staff recommends the adoption of No Parking Ordinance 16-36.
