Background Discussion

• Bill and Sarah Eurice, applicants, are requesting approval for a rezone of ±1.33 acres of the western portion of a ±2.33-acre site from the A-1 (Agricultural Suburban) zoning district to the RSF-2 (Residential Single-Family 2 Dwelling Units/Acre).

• The existing A-1 zoning district is intended to permit short-term agricultural and related uses and to provide for areas transitioning from rural to suburban or urban character. Table 4-1 of the Manatee County Land Development Code (LDC) establishes the schedule of uses for the A-1 zoning district, which predominantly includes residential and residential support uses. The maximum residential density permitted in an A-1 zoning district is 1.0 dwelling units per acre, whereas the proposed RSF-2 zoning district permits a density of 2 dwelling unit per acre.

• The site, as well as all parcels within a .5-mile radius, lie within the RES-6 (Residential 6.0 Dwelling Units/Acre), or higher, Future Land Use Category (FLUC).

• The existing A-1 zoning district has a maximum allowable density of 1 dwelling unit/acre, and the proposed RSF-2 zoning district has a maximum allowable density of 2 dwelling units/acre. Lot standards for the RSF-2 zoning district allow for a maximum number of three lots on the ±1.33 acres of the site being rezoned from A-1 to RSF-2. However, the RSF-2 zoning district allows no more than one (2) dwelling units/acre.

• A straight rezone can’t condition uses and design standards.  Compliance with the standards of the RSF-2 zoning district and all other requirements of the LDC will be reviewed and verified with future site plan approval for this site.

• Staff recommends approval.

• On March 8, 2018, by a vote of 5 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval. Mr. Rutledge and Mr. DeLesline were absent.
