EPISODE DESCRIPTION

produced by Eva Gray for WSLR

Manatee County is quietly pushing major changes to Land Development Codes in Manatee County that would make for less stringent requirements for developers. Originally, these changes were simply referred to as a "re-organization" of the plan. Once the county published the full changes, however, red flags were raised. Opponents to the changes say that these new codes could dramatically affect the quality of life for county residents. provisions include: an increase in building density and height limits, changes in fire codes, and an adherence to the Comprehensive Plan that does not apply to zoning codes. This makes for a redevelopment plan that has concerned everyone from the fire marshals to lawmakers, businesspeople, and citizens alike - albeit the comment period had ended as of January 31st. Joe Mcclash, former county commissioner and publisher of the bradentontimes.com, expressed concern that the commission would end up passing these changes in the summer, when most citizens are away from the county.
