County to Host March Workshops on Proposed Land Development Code Rewrite
Four half-day public meetings will be held at Convention Center March 4-7
MANATEE COUNTY – Manatee County Commission and Planning Commission will host four half-day workshops in March to discuss a series of proposed changes to the County’s Land Development Code, local regulations that govern how land is developed in the unincorporated areas of Manatee County.
During the workshops, County staff and a project consultant will walk through each of Phase I’s proposed changes which include organizational modifications to improve the usability of the Code, several “housekeeping” edits and updates necessary to address changes in Florida Statutes and other laws. Phase II changes will propose more substantive changes to the LDC as part of a separate public discussion at a later date.
The workshops will be held each day from Tuesday, March 4 through Friday, March 7. Each workshop will be open to the public and there will be opportunity for public comment every day. The workshops will be held at the Bradenton Area Convention Center at 1:30 p.m. each day. The workshops will be televised and rebroadcast on MGA and on the County’s YouTube channel.
Planning Commission, County Commission and public feedback from the March workshops will be included as part of a final draft of Phase I changes that will be presented to the County Attorney’s Office for review. After the County Attorney’s Office has reviewed the proposed Phase I changes, they will be presented to the Planning Commission and County Commission for final consideration later this year.
