Action Requested
Execution of Contract for Sale and Purchase for a Warranty Deed from Audrey S. Kelley and Elaine Jeanne Kelley to acquire the property for the Fort Hamer Bridge roadway improvements on Upper Manatee River Road in the amount of $61,617.50.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Florida Statutes Chapters 125 and 127 and Manatee County Comprehensive Plan Goal 5.1 addresses the safety and efficiency of forecasted vehicular demands.

Background Discussion

The Fort Hamer Bridge crossing is a priority project for the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization's Financially Feasible 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan being conducted by Manatee County in coordination with the US Coast Guard (USCG).

This acquisition is required to provide a north/south transportation route between high growth areas in eastern Manatee County that is separated by the Manatee River. The project will improve the Level of Service (LOS) to the existing local roadway network, accommodate future growth, improve emergency response time, and improve evacuation capacity across the Manatee River.

Ron Tegankamp, MAI provided an appraised value for the acquisition at $1.68 per square foot or $46,400 in 2011.

To avoid an appraisal update fee and possible expert and attorney's fees staff compared current tax values to the 2011 appraisal value and determined the assessments were comparable.  Since staff determined it was plausible to avoid these costly events, an additional $15,217.50 for tree installation along the new frontage boundary line of the property for noise abatement was agreed upon at the request of the property owner.
