7.   PDMU-11-08(Z)(G) – DTS#20110165 - TREES DIRECT LLC

Stephanie Moreland, Planner

An Ordinance of the Board of County Commissioners of Manatee County, Florida, regarding land development, amending the official zoning atlas (Ordinance No. 90-01, the Manatee County Land Development Code) relating to zoning within the unincorporated area; providing for the rezoning of approximately 85.54 acres on the north side of Mendoza Road and east side of I-75 at 5500 37th Street East, Ellenton, from the A-1 (Suburban Agriculture, one dwelling unit per acre) to PDMU (Planned Development Mixed Use) zoning district; approving a General Development Plan for two development scenarios (tradition and mixed use development) with a trade-off matrix that includes:

 

• 500 multi-family units which, may include a 120-bed residential care facility (equals 20 units), and

• Commercial/office use(s) of up to 150,000 square feet; and subject to stipulations as conditions of approval.

 

Opposition to the zoning change came from surrounding Home Owner Associations (HOA). Complaints of additional traffic, noise, crime and reduced property values were mentioned most by several residents who spoke to the commission. 

 

Pat Gross, President of Oak Creek HOA, provided a laundry list of reasons the development needs to be reconsidered. Gross emphasized that small roads, already overwhelmed, would have to carry as many as a thousand additional cars daily, and was very frustrated that the decision to go forward appeared to have already been made. John Kendzior, also from Oak Creek, claimed the applicant knew the cutting down of the old oak tree growth in the buffer next to Oak Creek was being destroyed to make room for development, not agriculture as claimed. 

 

Anthony Char, President of Covered Bridge HOA, expressed his concerns. Char has 45 years experience as a City Planner, discussed the stipulations requested by staff as being insufficient. His complaints were about density and traffic being a problem before the proposed development.

 

Staff recommended the proposed development, setting forth findings; providing for severability; providing a legadescription, and providing an effective date. -- Recommended for approval, 6 to 1, Conerly dissenting.
