Enabling/Regulating Authority

Manatee County Comprehensive Plan

Manatee Plan Land Development Code

Background Discussion
  • The 67± acres is a part of a 95.3± acre site.  On October 5, 2006, the entire site was rezoned to PDMU and a Preliminary Site Plan [PDMU-05-46(Z)(P)] was approved for a motor vehicle sales, rental, leasing establishment (with associated accessory uses) and 372 lots for single-family attached residences.  The commercial component is constructed (Lakewood Toyota Dealership).  The residential component received Final Site Plan (FSP-13-22) approval for 376 units (four units added administratively) and is being constructed as a multi-family project.
  • The current request is to change the residential component to multi-family units from single-family attached lots; add 28 units for a total of 400 multi-family units; two clubhouses, a fitness center, pool, and playground; detached garages with storage, a leasing office, mail kiosk and maintenance building.
  • Special Approval is required because the site is in an Entranceway and partially in the Coastal Evacuation Area (CEA), and Coastal High Hazard Area (CHHA) and Coastal High Hazard Overlay District.  Staff recommends a Hurricane Evacuation Plan be approved or updated by the Emergency Management Division of the Public Safety Department. 
  • The site is in a Flood Zone AE Category per Panel 12081C0190E and 12081C0326E, (3/17/14).   
  • The site is in the RES-6 (Residential, six dwelling units per acre) FLUC.  Special Approval is required for a gross density exceeding 4.5 dwelling units per acre and net density exceeding six dwelling units per acre.
  • The maximum building height proposed is 35 feet.
  • The site has access via a local road (1st Avenue East) which connects Cypress Creek Boulevard.  Additionally, the Preliminary Site Plan shows an emergency access connecting SR 64.
  • There are 11.3± acres of wetlands.  Minimal wetland impacts of 0.02± acres are proposed. 
  • Schools servicing this site are BD Gullett Elementary, Carlos B. Haile Middle, and Braden River High Schools.
  • The applicant requests Specific Approval for smaller replacement tree sizes.
  • Staff recommends approval with stipulations.
