Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion
  • The request is for approval of an amended and restated Development Order, pursuant to Chapter 380.06, Florida Statutes, for the Creekwood Development of Regional Impact. 
  • This 816.26 ± acre site is generally located at the northwest and northeast intersections of State Road 70 and I-75. This DRI was approved on August 27, 1985, for a mixed-use project that includes residential, commercial, industrial, offices, and recreation.
  • Eight amendments have been approved by the BOCC, and the total amount of development authorized within the latest amendment (08/02/2012) is 1,250 units, 603,000 square feet of commercial space, 800,000 square feet of industrial space, 225,000 square feet of office space, 80,0000 square feet of mini-warehouse, and 100 hotel rooms.
  • This request includes modifying Map H and the Development Order with the following changes:

A. Modify the land use of Parcel G from office to residential;
B. Increase the total number of residential units by 112 for a total of 1,362 units and decrease the office square footage by 125,000 square feet for a total of 100,000 square feet;
C. Delete Land Use Condition #1 regarding maximum density in the watershed;
D. Amend the stipulations related to the I-75 bridge approach; and
E. Update the Development Order to reflect terminology changes and department references.

  • Parcel G is located on the north side of SR 70, west of I-75, and east of Creekwood Boulevard, approximately ½ mile northeast of the intersection of SR 70 and Creekwood Boulevard at 7715 52nd Terrace E, Bradenton (±20.75 acres) and the present zoning is PDC/WP-E/ST (Planned Development Commercial/ Watershed Protection/Special Treatment Overlay Districts).
  • The addition of 112 residential units will not impact the traffic pattern of the surrounding area. The residential use will generate less PM peak-hour trips than the previous approved office complex.
  • The proposed modification does not reduce the overall open space and conservation areas of the Creekwood DRI.
  • Staff recommends approval.
  • The Planning Commission is scheduled for December 12, 2013.
  • The Planning Commission’s recommendation and changes will be in an update memo for the December 17, 2013, BOCC meeting.
