- Execution of Contract for Sale and Purchase for a Warranty Deed from Perico Roadways Inc., a dissolved Florida corporation.
Chapter 125, County Government, and Chapter 607, Florida Business Corporation Act, Florida Statutes.
- The acquisition process was initiated with requests from the adjacent Perico Bay subdivision HOA which led to conceptualization for connecting a regional trail network over the property.
- Purchasing this parcel owned by Perico Roadways, Inc., will allow Manatee County to explore the possibility of building a connector trail that will allow access from the Robinson Preserve South Access Point into Perico Preserve.
- This would effectively connect three preserves and miles of trails, and the proposed trail would be comparable to shell surface trails at Robinson Preserve. The trails would add value to the experience of Preserve Patrons and accessibility for Park and Natural Resources staff managing the properties.
- The parcel consists of mangrove wetlands, submerged land in Perico Bayou, and an area of uplands along the west boundary on which a connector pedestrian trail would be located.
- The proposed trail would only be accessible to the public during preserve hours.
- Upland portions of the subject property have been invaded by undesirable invasive exotic vegetation which serves as a nearby seed source to both Robinson and Perico Preserves and are aesthetically undesirable as noted by neighboring residents.
- The nuisance and exotic vegetation, consisting mostly of Brazilian Pepper and Carrotwood Trees, would be removed and a thick vegetative buffer of desirable native trees and shrubs replanted along the west boundary to maintain views comparable to existing conditions for the neighboring property owners.
- Neither an Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) or appraisal was completed.
