Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee County Land Development Code

Background Discussion

• Ms. Rachel Layton, AICP, with ZNS Engineering, agent for the property owner, is requesting approval of a rezoning from A/WP-E/ST (General Agriculture/Watershed Protection Evers/Special Treatment Overlay Districts) to PDR/WP-E/ST (Planned Development Residential/Watershed Protection Evers/Special Treatment Overlay Districts) zoning district and a Preliminary Site Plan for 139 lots for single-family detached residences.

• The 41.43± acre site is located on the west side of Lorraine Road and north of SR 70. The site is located within the RES-1 (Residential – one dwelling unit per acre) (20.68 acres), and R/O/R (Retail/Office/Residential) (20.75 acres) Future Land Use Categories (FLUCs).

• The Preliminary Site Plan proposes:

      o Two access points, along Lorraine Road.
      o 24 feet wide internal roadways (50-foot wide right-of-way). 
      o A minimum lot size of 6,000 sq. ft. (50’ x 120’). 
      o Gross Density: 3.35 du/acre and Net Density: 3.39 du/acre. Proposed gross and net density are in compliance with the Land Use Operative Provision # 3 of the Comprehensive Plan.
      o 37% of the site is designated as open space (15.34 acres) which exceeds the minimum requirement for a Planned Development Residential within the Watershed Protection Evers Overlay District (35%).

• Special Approval is required for a project exceeding a net density of 1.0 dwelling unit per acre in the RES-1 FLUC, and within the Watershed Protection Evers and the Special Treatment Overlay Districts.

• Specific Approval is requested to LDC Section 402.7.D.5 and 701.3.B.3.c, to provide a variable width greenbelt buffer (5 feet to 14 feet wide) on a 110- foot in length portion of the buffer along to the northeast property line.

• Staff recommends approval.

• On August 11, 2016, by a vote of 6 – 0, the Planning Commission recommended approval.
