Action Requested


Based upon the staff report, evidence presented, comments made at the Public Hearing, and finding the request to be CONSISTENT with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan and the Manatee County Land Development Code, as conditioned herein, I move to ADOPT Manatee County Zoning Ordinance No. PDPI-09-12(P)(R); APPROVE Stiplulations A-1 and A-2, as amended; and A-3 through F-1, as recommended by staff.

Commissioner Bustle

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion
  • The request is for approval of modifications to Design and Land Use Conditions for a Class III geosynthetically lined landfill.  The property is currently zoned PDPI.
  • This 208.15+ acre site is located on the west side of CR 39 immediately south of the Manatee/Hillsborough County line, at 14155 CR 39 in Duette.


  • On November 17, 2009, the site was rezoned from General Agriculture(A) to Planned Development Public Interest (PDPI).  A Preliminary Site Plan was approved for a Class III Geosynthetically Lined landfill.  
  • The project has been developed as a Class III landfill and has been operating since late 2011.

Current Request:

  • This request is to amend two Design and Land Use Stipulations of the Development Order.  One relates to the hours of operation.  The other relates to the frequency of soil cover on the working face of the landfill.
  • Staff has some concerns with the requested hours of operation because they are longer than traditional hours of operation for similar facilities.  This could lead to offsite impacts like noise and light trespass.
  • Staff does recognize, however that this facility is located adjacent to active mining operations and agriculture and there are few residences adjacent to the property today. 
  • With regard to soil cover, the proposal is consistent with FDEP requirements.  Oversight and enforcement of the facility‚Äôs Operation Permit is through FDEP, so any complaints regarding nuisances will be addressed by the applicant so they remain in compliance with that Permit.
  • Staff recommends approval.
