Action Requested
ADOPT Resolution R-15-126.

Enabling/Regulating Authority
  • Manatee County Land Development Code Chapter 9, Section 911.3, Public Hearing requirements for Vacation of Streets, Road, and other Appropriate Property.
  • Florida Statutes Sections 336.09 and 336.10 et seq., Closing and Abandonment of Roads.

Background Discussion
  • The applicant, Mandarin Development Inc., is requesting vacation of 600 square feet of improved platted right-of-way known as San Miguel Cove that currently provides emergency and secondary means of access. 
  • This vacation is to eliminate an emergency inter-neighborhood connection between Riva Trace and Carriage Run Subdivision.  The vacation would allow Riva Trace to eliminate the expense of maintaining a remote-operated access gate. 
  • Jurisdictional reviews by appropriate county departments and private utility companies serving the location to be vacated have been notified of the intention to file a vacation.
  • Public Safety does not support the vacation of the emergency access to Riva Trace because the cul-de-sac is 2400 feet in length, which is three times the normal limit.
  • Building and Development Services does not support the vacation; states Ordinance No. PDR-04-14(P)(R)-Riva Trace, LLC/Riva Trace contains Findings of Fact in Item "E" concerning the need for emergency access point since it was a part of a specific finding of fact when the BCC approved the revised Preliminary Site Plan for Riva Trace Subdivision on May 25, 2010. 
  • Per Public Works request, the applicant will be providing a permanent utilities easement for drainage and utilities over the area requested to be vacated.  This will be presented on September 22, 2015.
  • According to the applicant,  the vacation complies with the technical requirements of the Manatee County Land Development Code and pertinent Florida Statutes.  The applicant states the secondary means of access is not required and requests a public hearing on September 22, 2015.
  • All expenses associated with the subject vacation will be paid by the applicant.
  • Manatee County's application fee of $800 has been paid.
