Action Requested


Based upon the evidence presented, comments made at the public hearing, the technical support documents, and finding the request to be consistent with the Community Planning Act, as codified in applicable portions of Chapter 163, Part II, Florida Statutes, and the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan, I move to recommend Transmittal of Plan Amendment PA-16-04, as recommended by staff.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion

• In 2016, projects presumed to be a development of regional impact no longer have to go through the DRI process if consistent with the Comprehensive Plan.

• Existing DRI’s continue to require county, regional and state review.

• Existing DRIs have been allowed to request a Certificate of Level of Service (CLOS) for Concurrency with a General Development Plan (GDP).

• Projects slightly less than a Development of Regional Impact are deemed a “large project” and  have to meet all large project standards but are not eligible to request a Certificate of Level of Service with the associated General Development Plan.

• With no more DRI reviews for  proposed development that are consistent with the Comprehensive Plan, staff is proposing a General Development Plan that meets “large project” standards be allowed to apply for a CLOS.

• Various department names have been corrected throughout the sections.

• Staff recommends transmittal.
