Manatee County Comprehensive Plan
Manatee County Land Development Code
• Dianne Fenech, AICP, and Strickland Smith, P.E. with Heidt Design, LLC, agent for WSI Land Holdings, LLC (owner), is requesting approval of a General Development Plan (GDP) for a project named Stonegate Preserve (f/k/a Stonedam Preserver).
• The project was formerly known as Stonedam Preserve, and was previously rezoned from A (General Agriculture) and A-1 (Suburban Agriculture) to PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use) with a Preliminary Site Plan (PSP) in 2005.Stonedam Preserve received Final Site Plan (FSP) approval in 2007.
• Both the associated PSP and FSP for Stonedam Preserve expired in 2012. As such the entitlements granted to the Stonedam Preserve project are no longer effective, and require a new site plan to be approved for any development to occur on site.
• The agents for the owner have submitted this request to establish new entitlements which are consistent with those which previously expired, the request is identical to the previously approved project.
• The project has three (3) Future Land Use Categories (FLUC); the UF-3 FLUC which provides for a maximum gross residential density of 3.0 du/ac, the RES-6 FLUC which provides for a maximum gross residential density of 6.0 du/ac, and the P/SP(1) FLUC which is designed to recognize existing and programmed public/quasi-public facilities, primarily those for public and private utilities.
• The project is requesting four (4) Special Approvals
1. To allow a project with a gross density exceeding 1 dwelling unit per acre in the UF-3 FLUC
• The project is requesting two (2) Specific Approvals
Both requested Specific Approvals pertain to roadway buffer requirements. The applicant is requesting approval to reduce the required roadway buffer along Buckeye Road from twenty (20) feet to fifteen (15) feet.
• Staff recommends Approval with Stipulations.
• On November 10, 2016, by a vote of 4 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Mr. Conerly, Mr. Bower and Mr. Horrigan were absent.
