I move to Adopt Ordinance 16-30.
As a Certified Local Government (CLG), Manatee County affirms its commitment to historic preservation.
• As a CLG, the county encourages property owners of historic sites to seek “local” Historic Landmark Designation, listing on the Florida Master Site File and/or, if eligible, listing on the National Register of Historic Places.
• To encourage the preservation and restoration of historic properties, an ad-valorem tax exemption program is important incentive.
• Sections 196.1997 and 196.1998, Florida Statutes, authorizes a county to adopt an ordinance to allow such an exemption on qualified historic properties or non-profit or governmental purposes that are regularly open to the public.
