Action Requested


Based upon the staff report, evidence presented, comments made at the Public Hearing, and finding the request to be CONSISTENT with the Manatee County Comprehensive Plan and in accordance with Section 341 of the Land Development Code, I move to recommend adoption of Ordinance 16-24, amending the Manatee County Land Development Code, subject to Ordinance 16-23 becoming effective, as recommended by staff.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Land Development Code

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Background Discussion

• The County hired Littlejohn Consultants to review our existing regulations and make recommended changes to the regulations that would improve opportunities for infill, redevelopment and development within the urban area, along the Urban Corridors. 

• In conjunction with the Urban Corridors project, Littlejohn did an assessment of the Comprehensive Plan and the Land Development Code.  In addition to the proposed amendments to the LDC directly related to the Urban Corridors, Littlejohn and county staff identified other amendments that apply countywide. 

• These amendments include adding some sections that were taken out of the Comprehensive Plan (applicable Countywide) with Ordinance 16-23, approved in September 2016, reconciling definitions with the Plan, and some clean up items left over from the previous LDC reorganization.  

• Again, to keep the amendments manageable, the amendments are being taken as separate applications.  The amendments discussed within this staff report deal with amendments to the Land Development Code that are applicable Countywide.  Changes related to the Urban Corridors project are being processed separately.

• Staff recommends approval of the amendments.
