Enabling/Regulating Authority
Florida Statutes, Section 316.008 - Powers of Local Authorities

Background Discussion
  • Ordinance 16-18, Request for No Parking From 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, on both sides of 75th Street Northwest from 8th Avenue Northwest to 9th Avenue Northwest (attached). 
  • The Manatee County School Board has requested installation of No Parking signs on 75th Street Northwest from 8th Avenue Northwest, north 300 feet to 9th Avenue Northwest. The concern is that drivers are picking up and dropping off students along this section of right-of-way during the time period when the reduced speed limit school zone is active and when there is a higher volume of pedestrian and vehicular traffic.  Drivers parking in the location re-enter the roadway making U-turns, creating undesirable conditions for other drivers and pedestrians. Attached is a survey from the nearest neighbor.
  • Restricting parking along this roadway segment during school hours will encourage drivers to use the designated pick up/drop off area on school property.
