Background Discussion
  • King Engineering, on behalf of Thomas Howze, has filed a rezone application from “A” (General Agriculture) to “PDC” (Planned Development Commercial) and an accompanying General Development Plan.  The 5.48 + acre site is north of S.R. 70 at Verna Bethany Road.  The application is proposing 30,000 square feet of Neighborhood Commercial Retail uses on the subject property;
  • The site is designated Ag/R on the Future Land Use Map; the maximum square footage allowed in the Ag/R FLUC without a Special Approval is 3,000 ;
  • The applicant is requesting Special Approval to allow the 30,000 square foot development, in accordance with Comprehensive Plan Policy;
  • The site is in an “C” Flood Zone;
  • The property is outside of the Manatee County water and sewer service area and service will provided by well and septic tanks;  and
  • Staff recommends approval with stipulations.
  • On July 11, 2013, by a vote of 5 – 2, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Mr. Bedford and Mr. Conerly voting nay due to lack of a site plan and infrastructure.
