Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion

• Canoe Creek Subdivision is approximately 304.09 acres on the north and south sides of Golf Course Road around its intersection with Jim Davis Road at 14355 Golf Course Rd., Parrish. The site is zoned PDR/NCO (Planned Development Residential/North County Overlay).

• On May 5, 2011, the site was rezoned to PDR and a Preliminary Site Plan [PDR-10-11(Z)(P)] was approved for 896 lots for single-family detached residences. 

• The request is to revise the ordinance to allow single-family semi-detached and single-family attached units in addition to the already approved single-family detached units.  

• The request is associated with an LDA.  The LDA will be brought before the Board at the same hearing.  The applicant is requesting a longer CLOS (Certificate of Level of Service) based on transportation analysis of Canoe Creek as a Planned Unit Development, which requires a mix of different residential single-family products. 

• No revisions are proposed to the Preliminary Site Plan.  The revision to the ordinance is to allow for the variety in unit type, but still keeping the single-family product.  No multi-family is proposed. All prior conditions, Specific Approvals, and Specific Approvals will be carried forward with the revised ordinance.

• Staff recommends approval of the request.
