Action Requested


Based upon the evidence presented, comments made at the public hearing, the technical support documents and finding the request to be consistent with the Community Planning Act, as codified in applicable portions of Chapter 163, Part II, Florida Statutes, and the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan, I move to recommend Transmittal of Plan Amendment PA14-01, as recommended by staff.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion

• A recommendation from the Urban Land Institute (ULI) was that in order to promote successful economic growth there was a need to start with a greater focus on redevelopment in the southwest quadrant of the County.

• Homes and businesses in the southwest area of the county have aged and lagged behind other areas of the county in terms of growth and development.

• To encourage redevelopment and provide a funding source in the southwest area, Manatee County is proposing to establish the Southwest (Home Rule) Tax Increment Financing (TIF) district.

• Currently, there are two Community Redevelopment Areas within the proposed SW TIF district boundaries – the South County and the 14th Street West CRA’s.

• The County must dissolve both Community Redevelopment Areas (CRA’s) to create the Southwest Tax Increment Financing District.

• The first step in this task is a Comprehensive Plan text amendment to remove references to and illustrations of the Community Redevelopment Areas (CRA).

• Manatee County will pursue an alternative concurrency and multi-modal approach to the entire SW TIF district, the Urban Core as well as the Urban Infill Redevelopment Area (UIRA) in North County. These changes will be part of future County initiated changes.
