Background Discussion
  • The applicants, Stephen P. Aron, Joseph J. Roman, and John S. Schlabach are requesting a vacation of a portion of 261st Street East within Pomello Park.
  • The right-of-way sought to be vacated was dedicated to the public in 1926 by the Pomello Park subdivision plat recorded at Plat Book 6, Page 61 of the Public Records of Manatee County, Florida.
  • The portion of 261st Street East that is sought to be vacated abuts the applicants properties and is unimproved.
  • Jurisdictional reviews by appropriate county departments and private utility companies serving the area to be vacated have been notified of the intention to file a vacation and have no objection.
  • Clarke Davis, Transportation Planning Section Manager, initially had a conditional objection. However, after a revised sketch of description was agreed upon by the applicants that reduces the vacation to meet the requirements of the LDC (per Miles Gentry, Planning Section Manager), Clarke Davis amended his comments and has no objection.
  • James Hallman with Charter (formerly Brighthouse) initially had a conditional objection. However, after James reviewed the comments from Peace River, James amended his comments and has no objection.
  • The vacation application complies with the technical requirements of the Manatee County Land Development Code and pertinent Florida Statutes.
  • All expenses associated with the subject vacation will be paid by the applicants.
  • Manatee County's application filing fee of $800 has been paid.
  • Staff followed and completed the recommendation outlined in the Request for Legal Services (RLS).
