Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion

1. Ms. Diane Chadwick, AICP, of Stantec Consulting Services, Inc., agent for the owner, is requesting approval of a Preliminary Site Plan for 1,600 residential units consisting of 740 single family detached units, 260 single family attached units, and 600 multi-family units.  The site is approximately 680 acres and is located on the east side of Carter Road, north of Moccasin Wallow Road, and south of Buckeye Road.

2. The site is located in the UF-3 (Urban Fringe, 3 dwelling units per acre).  The project’s gross density is 2.4 du/ac.

3. The project requires Special Approval for:  projects located in UF-3 exceeding 1 du/ac (gross) and 3 du/ac(net); project adjacent to a perennial lake or stream; and project located within the Entranceway.  Staff recommends support of the Special Approval Request.

4. Staff is requesting and supporting Specific Approvals to reduce replacement tree sizes.  The Applicant is requesting Specific Approval to the Buffer in North Central Overlay (NCO).  Staff supports this request because the purpose of the berm and wall is to mitigate noise impacts along I-75 and recommends that the wall and at least 75% of the berm be setback a minimum of 50-feet from Carter Road so that the required landscaping can meet NCO standards.

5. This site was previously approved for 1,072 homes.  The Applicant is requesting the increase to provide a wider variety of housing types within the development:  single family detached, attached, and semi-detached as well as multi-family.

6. The project provides 310.5 acres of open space, exceeding the requirements for a project located in the Entranceway.

7. Project access is from Moccasin Wallow Road and Carter Road.
