Enabling/Regulating Authority


Background Discussion

The proposed vacant commercial property is located at 904 301 Blvd W, Bradenton, Florida (PID 4834200000) and is in close proximity to the Tax Collector's US 301 main branch office facility (see attached map). 

The parcel contains 2.1365 acres and is currently owned by ABC Liquors Inc. 

The Tax Collector's current commercial structure is not adequate for planned expansion of services requirements.  At a budget work session on August 19, 2014, the Tax Collector outlined a number of  impacts to his office's operations in the next few years that will result in very significant workload increases and the need for additional office space.  

After evaluation of the property it has been determined that renovations to the existing older structure are not cost effective as compared to erecting a new facility.

The proposal to acquire this property and construct a new building was presented at a work session on December 9, 2014.
