Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Florida Statutes Section 380.06

Background Discussion

• The request is for approval of an amended and restated Development Order, pursuant to Chapter 380.06, Florida Statutes for the Gateway North Development of Regional Impact (A/K/A Artisan Lakes). 

• The 1,039.2± acre site is generally located northwest of the intersection of I-75 and Moccasin Wallow Road. This DRI was originally approved on April 9, 1992 for a 1,065-acre multi-use development. Five amendments have been approved by the BOCC, and the total amount of development authorized within the latest amendment (12/02/2010) is 2,800 residential units, 445,200 square feet of commercial space, 397,500 square feet of office/warehouse space, and 960,500 square feet of office space. The project also includes a 20-acre school site, a 15.5-acre recreation center, and a 24.3-acre park (dedicated to Manatee County).

• This request includes modifying Map H and the Development Order with the following changes:
o Reflect previously granted legislative extensions, and
o Provide an updated proportionate share calculation for Phase 1.

• Accompanying the amendment to the DRI as a Notice of Proposed Change (NOPC), the applicant requests an amendment to the General Development Plan and Zoning Ordinance under a separate application.

• The build-out date for Phases 1, 2, and 3 is updated to reflect legislative approved extensions granted by HB 7207 (4 year extension), and F.S. 252.363 (326 days + 60 days and 6 months) as follows:
o Phase 1: from 02/20/2022 to 09/13//2027
o Phase 2: from 02/20/2025 to 09/13/2030
o Phase 3: from 02/20/2027 to 09/13/2032

• The applicant has prepared an updated proportionate share calculation for Phase 1 of the Gateway North DRI, in order to address transportation deficiencies caused by non-project traffic as defined by current law (State Community Planning Act).  Phases 2 and 3 shall remain conceptually-approved and subject to further transportation, air quality and affordable/workforce housing analysis. The proposed change has been reviewed concurrently by the TBRPC, Manatee County, and FDOT.

• The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council (TBRPC) has completed their review of the project, and issued a NOPC Report that was considered at the February 8th, 2016 TBRPC Council Meeting.

• Staff has no objection to the proposed modifications to the Gateway North Development Order since:
o the updated phase and project buildout dates are merely a reflection of previously granted legislative extensions, and
o the proposed updated proportionate share calculation for Phase 1 shall be presumed not to create a Substantial Deviation and may not be considered an additional regional transportation impact.

• Staff recommends approval.

• On April 14, 2016, by a vote of 7 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
