Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion

• Ms. Rachel Layton (ZNS), agent for Neal Communities and McClure Properties LTD, seeks approval of a rezone to PDR (Planned Development Residential) and a Preliminary Site Plan for 92 lots for single-family semi-detached residences at the southwest corner of 63rd Avenue East and Lockwood Ridge Road..
• The 18.64± acre infill site is surrounded by residential developments. In September 2002, the site was rezoned from A-1/WP-E/ST to PDC/WP-E/ST without a plan. 
• Single-family semi-detached uses are permitted in the PDR zoning district with Board approval.
• The site is in the RES-6 Future Land Use Category (FLUC).  Suburban or urban residential uses are listed in the range of potential uses for consideration.  RES-6 FLUC allows a maximum gross density of six dwelling units per acre and net density of 12 dwelling units per acre.  The maximum gross density proposed is 4.95 dwelling units per acre and net density is 5.07 dwelling units per acre.  Special Approval is required because the gross density exceeds 4.5 dwelling units per acre.
• Special Approval is also required for a project in the Evers Reservoir Watershed Protection and Special Treatment Overlay Districts. 
• The applicant requests Specific Approvals to allow a reduction of the perimeter buffer from 15 to 10 feet and a reduction of the front yard setback from 25 feet to 20 feet.
• The total open space calculation proposed is 37% (6.78± acres). 35% (6.51± acres) is required.
• The site is in Flood Zones “X.”  There are no wetlands.
• The site will utilize County water and sewer.
• Staff recommends approval with stipulations.
• On April 9, 2015, by a vote of 5 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
