The proposed Moccasin Wallow Road development is unlike other Neal Community projects, says Pat Neal. "I couldn't be more proud," the developer told the BOCC at Thursday's land use meeting, adding that he is looking forward to the county being proud of it too. Trouble is, he was just trying to take one of his costly responsibilities and foist it on the public ... again.

At Thursday's Land Use Meeting, two projects dominated what may have been the largest agenda the BOCC has been presented, at least in recent years. Wetland mitigation for the land the Ft. Hamer bridge is being built on was the first, and a 2.75 mile sidewalk for the Village of Amazon South project on Moccasin Wallow Road and U.S. 301 was the other.

Biding his time patiently for years, Pat Neal has owned wetlands on Perico Island bordering Sarasota Bay, waiting for the right mix of political connections to get the approval to destroy the environmentally sensitive land for another development. In fact, the 40-acre parcel of land he owns through a trust is mostly wetlands. Most if not all have conservation protection by the City of Bradenton’s development rules, but don’t expect Mayor Poston to ensure those rules are followed. As for the South Florida Water Management District, Carlos Beruff serves on its board and Neal and Beruff have close business ties, so it may be no surprise that they would grant a permit to Neal, allowing him to destroy the wetlands.
