Background Discussion

On September 3, 2015, Manatee County issued Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) 15-1162CP to solicit private sector partners who are experienced in hotel development to propose a nationally branded hotel property adjacent to or near the Bradenton Area Convention Center (BACC).   S. Goodman and Associates, LLC, was selected.

On September 27, 2016, the Board of County Commissioners approved a Development Agreement for a Convention Hotel with Improvement Network Development Partners (INDP), a special purpose entity created by S. Goodman and Associates for the purpose of developing this project.

On January 24, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners approved Resolution No. R-17-021 which provided for a Ground Lease And Development Agreement for the project.

The terms and conditions of the agreement have not been met by INDP and staff is requesting authorization to terminate the agreement.
