Background Discussion
  • The request is for approval of an Environmental Preserve Management Plan for an expansion to a passive recreational preserve (Robinson Preserve).
  • The 149.18 ± acre site is on the west side of 99th Street N.W., and west of 9th Avenue N.W., at 1704 99th Street N.W., Bradenton.  
  • The site is in the RES-1 (Residential, one dwelling unit per acre) Future Land Use Category (FLUC) and zoned PDR (Planned Development Residential).  There is a pending zoning request (Z-13-01) running concurrently with this request.  If approved, the  site will be rezoned to CON (Conservation)   
  • There are no wetlands or wetland impacts associated with this request.  There are no known historic or archaeological resources on the site.  The site is in the A11, BFE 10’, A12 BFE 10’ & 11’, A13 BFE 10’ Flood Zone Categories.  
  • Special Approvals are required for a project adjacent to a perennial stream, in the Coastal Evacuation Area, and the Coastal High Hazard Area.  
  • The use is consistent with the community character of the immediate neighborhood and will provide more passive recreational amenities including an educational environmental discovery center for nearby residents and visitors.  Additionally, Manatee County will be able to maintain and restore natural habitats.  
  • Staff recommends approval.
