Background Discussion

• Tara-Manatee Development of Regional Impact (DRI #11 – 1,124.21± acres) is generally located in the southwest quadrant of I-75 and S.R. 70, Manatee County.  The site is in the MU (Mixed Use), and RES-6 (Residential, six dwelling units per acre) Future Land Use Categories (FLUCs).  The site is zoned PDC/WP-E/ST (Planned Development Commercial/Evers Reservoir Watershed Protection/Special Treatment Overlay Districts).

• Tara development predates to November 1980 when the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) approved a Resolution granting a Development Order for TARA DRI#11 for a mixed use development on 1,136.95± acres.  Since 1986, there were many amendments approved to the Development Order.
• Currently, the Tara DRI is approved for 2,719 residential dwelling units, 399,631 square feet for commercial, office, Adult Assisted Living Facility, Mini Warehouse space, 36 Hole Golf course space, Hotel, two (2) Clubhouses, and two (2) Maintenance Centers.
• The applicant requests a revision to the TARA-MANATEE, INC. Development Order (DO) and Map H.  The request is accompanied with a companion revision to the Development Order [Ordinance 18-02 (f.k.a. 10-50) and is as follows:

1) The addition of a 123-room hotel use to Subphase III-R, Unit 1 per a land use exchange as provided for in Exhibit F;
2) Amendment to Map H (Exhibit B) to locate the Hotel use in Subphase III-R, Unit 1;
