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 44th Avenue East Road Improvement Project from 45th Street East to 44th Avenue Plaza East was approved in FY 2014 (Project Number 6086960).
  • Parcel 135 is improved with a homestead residence.  A guest house/apartment is located on the property, but is located outside of the partial acquisition area.
  • Independence Acquisition and Appraisal, LLC, was contracted to negotiate an agreement for the land.
  • On March 16, 2017, Appraiser Nick Chop, MAI, Florida Valuation, determined the value of the area for acquisition at $412,250.00 consisting of a land value at $51,450.00, improvements at $278,000.00, damages incurable at $25,800.00, and cost to cure, net or minor, at $57,000.00.

  • A settlement was approved by Public Works in the amount of $485,550.00 for land, improvements, and cost to cure and includes legal and expert costs. Manatee County, as the condemning authority, is required to pay a landowner's attorney fees and reasonable expert costs in eminent domain proceedings.
  • The area of the partial acquisition is 39,551 square feet. The area of each Temporary Construction Easement (TCE) is 4,266 square feet and 11,900 square feet, respectfully. The TCE's were not part of the appraisal or initial project design and will allow a five-foot envelope around both the pond and the house to allow equipment to maneuver.
