Enabling/Regulating Authority
Section 742 of the Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion
  • Edward Dick, on behalf of the Guardian Angels Foster Family Home project, is requesting a waiver of the street numbering requirement for the entry roadway into the project.
  • The site contains 7.2650 +/- acres and the proposed development is residential homes for foster care families.  Currently two homes are under construction, with the remaining seven homes to be constructed at a later date.
  • The access roadway into the project currently has the numeric designation of 77th Ct E.  However, the Guardian Angels Board would like to name the street "Bouwer Court," in honor of the Bouwer family, whose large financial contributions to the foster home project help make it  possible. 
  • Section 742.8 of the Manatee County Land Development Code allows for a waiver of the street numbering requirement.  This section also requires the Manatee County Public Safety Department, Traffic Management Division, and the North River Fire District to review the request.
  • These reviewing agencies, with the exception of the North River Fire District, have no objection to the waiver request and have indicated that emergency response will not be compromised by the granting of the waiver.
  • Guardian Angels Board has requested the County to pay the associated application fee of $812
  • County staff recommends that such refund and payment by County is appropriate and serves the public purpose of benefiting foster needs in the area
