  • MANATEE COUNTY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN, FUTURE LAND USE ELEMENT GOAL 2.4, ADEQUATE & AVAILABLE PUBLIC FACILITIES CONCURRENT WITH NEW DEVELOPMENT.  The project has been issued a Certificate of Level of Service for Potable Water, Solid Waste, Sanitary Sewer, Transit, Drainage, Traffic, and Fire Protection, Objective 2.4.1, Concurrency, CLOS-14-001.

Background Discussion
  • The final plat is for a single-family private subdivision with 149 lots.
  • The utilities (water, sewer, reclaim, and lift station) within this private road subdivision will be publicly owned and maintained by Manatee County.  The applicant has elected to plat the subdivision prior to its construction.  As a result, the applicant has provided a performance bond for platting purposes for all future private and public infrastructure improvements.  As part of the proposed public utility within this private road subdivision, a POMD agreement along with a Bill of Sale for utility infrastructure to Manatee County is required to be executed and recorded.
  • Upon completion of this subdivision and issuance of a Certificate of Completion by Manatee County, the performance bond will be released and replaced with a defect security bond.  At that time, the applicant shall execute a POMD agreement and a Bill of Sale and submit both to Manatee County for acceptance and execution by the Board.
  • All common areas including the roads will be maintained by the Del Tierra Homeowners' Association, Inc.
