Background Discussion
In 2012 Manatee County relocated its Wastewater Division, Lift Stations Section, to the Southwest Reclamation Facility vacating property contiguous to Trailer Estates.

Manatee County already leased a portion of the property to Trailer Estates Park and Recreation District for vehicle storage and parking. With the transfer of our Lift Station Division, and the demolition of excess facilities, Trailer Estates approached Manatee County with a concept of maintaining and utilizing a portion of the property for recreational passive park uses such as horse shoes, badminton, and a walking trail.

Manatee County Utilities entered into dialogue with Trailer Estates for landscape maintenance and recreational passive park use on property located a the corner of Bay Drive and American Way.

Due to changes related to the seasonal status of some members of the Board of Trustees of Trailer Estates Park and Recreation District and some turnover of the membership, it has taken some time to finalize a lease agreement.

The agreement attached has been thoroughly reviewed by legal counsel of both parties and has been executed by the Board of Trustees on February 29, 2016.
