Action Requested
Execute Contract for Sale and Purchase for a Warranty Deed with Ahmed E. Aburahmah for the purpose of roadway improvements on Upper Manatee River Road in the amount of $4,600.00

Enabling/Regulating Authority
Chapters 125 and 127, Florida Statutes. Manatee County Comprehensive Plan Goal 5.1 addresses the safety and efficiency of forecasted vehicular demands.

Background Discussion

The Fort Hamer Bridge crossing is a priority project in the Sarasota/Manatee Metropolitan Planning Organization's Financially Feasible 2030 Long Range Transportation Plan being conducted by Manatee County in coordination with the US Coast Guard (USCG). 

The acquisition is required to provide a north/south transportation route between high growth areas in East Manatee County and separated by the Manatee River. This project will improve the Level of Service (LOS) to the existing local roadway network, accommodate future growth, improve emergency response time, and improve evacuation capacity across the Manatee River.

In 2011 Ron Tegenkamp, MAI, provided a value for the acquisition of a vacant parcel of land at $.88 per square foot or $4,600.00. To prevent additional appraisal fees and possible attorney and expert fees, staff compared the 2011 tax values to the 2013 values and determined the assessments to be comparable.
