Action Requested

Based upon the staff reports, evidence presented, comments made at the Public Hearing, the action of the Planning Commission and finding the request to be CONSISTENT with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan and Manatee County Ordinance 04-39 ("The Manatee County Phosphate Mining Code") as conditioned herein, I move to recommend ADOPTION of Resolution R-18-012, Master Mining Plan for Wingate Creek Mine, as recommended by staff.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Ch. 125.01, F.S. Powers and Duties of County Commissions

Ordinance 04-39, The Manatee County Phosphate Mining Code

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan (Ordinance 89-01, as amended)

Background Discussion
  • This request is for approval of an amendment to the Master Mining Plan (MMP) for the Wingate Creek Mine to be compatible with the recently approved Wingate East MMP, Resolution R-07-017. The amendment proposes to extend the termination date of the mining life and trucking schedule (with no increase in trucking volume) by 14 years to 2037 and extend the life of reclamation to 2042. The proposed MMP amendment also requests modifications to the internal mining and reclamation dates. This amendment also incorporates conditions from the DRI DO, in conjunction with the approval of LDA 17-04, in order for the DO to be rescinded.

  • The Wingate Creek Mine is located in the eastern portion of Manatee County and is currently zoned EX. The site is located adjacent to Wingate East Mine and near the Southeast Tract. Currently the mine totals 3,028 acres of which 2,578 acres is approved for mining and disturbance (with a 280 acres clay settling area) and 450 acres is non-disturbed lands.
