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, the Manatee County Land Development Code, and Section 380.06, Florida Statutes, subject to the conditions of approval established in the Development Order, I move to recommend APPROVAL of Ordinance No. 14-04, as recommended by staff.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion
  • The request is for approval of an amended and restated Development Order, pursuant to Chapter 380.06, Florida Statutes for the Creekwood Development of Regional Impact. 
  • This 816.26 ± acre site is generally located at the northwest and northeast intersections of State Road 70 and I-75. This DRI was approved on August 27, 1985 for a mixed-use project that includes residential, commercial, industrial, offices, and recreation. Nine amendments have been approved by the BOCC, and the total amount of development authorized within the latest amendment (12/17/2013) is 1,362 units, 603,000 square feet of commercial space, 800,000 square feet of industrial space, 100,000 square feet of office space, 80,000 square feet of mini-warehouse, and 100 hotel rooms.
  • This request includes modifying Map H and the Development Order with the following changes:
                A. Allow group care home (assisted living facility) as an allowable use in Parcel MU, and
                B. Add 150-bed group care home and decrease the commercial square footage by 10,000 square feet for a total of 593,000 square feet of commercial space.
  • Parcel MU is located on the north side of SR 70 and east of I-75 (±52.53 acres) and the present zoning is PDI/WP-E/ST (Planned Development Industrial/ Watershed Protection/Special Treatment Overlay Districts).
  • The addition of 150 group care home beds will not impact the traffic pattern of the surrounding area and will generate less PM peak-hours trip than 10,000 square of commercial space.
  • The proposed modification does not reduce the overall open space and conservation areas of the Creekwood DRI.
  • Staff recommends approval.
