I move to authorize the Chairman to sign the Certified Local Government Agreement and Cover Letter.
Manatee County Comprehensive Plan
Manatee County Land Development Code
- Manatee County Government is taking steps to become a Certified Local Government (CLG) through the Florida Division of Historic Preservation and the National Park Service.
- The required Land Development Code amendments necessary to implement the Certified Local Government (CLG) program were approved by the Board of County Commissioners on October 3, 2013. The LDC amendments and the CLG application were forwarded to the Florida Division of Historic Preservation for completeness review.
- Staff received notification from the Florida Division of Historic Preservation the submittal package met program guidelines.
- With the notification came a Certified Local Government Agreement that requires BOCC approval and signature.
- The signed Agreement will be returned to the Florida Division of Historic Preservation who in turn forwards to the National Park Service for final determination.
- Upon final determination from the National Park Service, Manatee County will become a Certified Local Government.
- As a Certified Local Government (CLG), local cultural and historic resources, significant to the history of Manatee County, may be granted a locally significant historic landmark designation. The designation provides protection to those sites worthy of preservation.
- Matching grant funds are available to conduct surveys to identify and evaluate significant historic properties, to fund the preparation of National Register nominations as well as funding development of preservation education materials, publications, or other media presentations of the community’s history.
- Once certified, staff must follow specific performance standards:
- Provide the State Historic Preservation Officer (SHPO) with 30 days notice prior to all meetings
- Submit Minutes and Record of Attendance to SHPO within 30 days after each meeting
- Notify SHPO within 30 days of any change in Historic Preservation Board membership
- Hold a minimum of 4 meetings per year
- Provide an Annual Report
- Staff recommends approval.
