Manatee County is seeking input on a set of changes to its comprehensive plan and land development code over the next few months. The proposed changes will have significant bearing on how the County reviews and processes future land development applications. More specifically, the suggested changes will bring more consistency among regulations in the County's major planning documents, according to Planning Manager Lisa Barrett. All of the new policies and revisions are posted on the County's website for public review. The County will host a public workshop to go over the planned changes on Jan. 17, from 5:30-7:30pm in the Downtown Central Library Auditorium. Attendees are encouraged to review the proposed changes online beforehand, in order to ask better questions, but a consultant will be on hand to explain the proposed amendments at the meeting. In 2018, Barrett said additional substantive changes will be discussed regarding the County's sign ordinance, how it's planning for sea level rise and provisions to allow for residential accessory dwelling units.
