PETITION To MAINTAIN THE CURRENT RSF-1 ZONING DESIGNATION (Residential Single Family-One Dwelling Unit Per Acre) of certain wetland property situated between the Braden River and Braden Woods subdivision and identified as Manatee County Property Parcels 583900006, 583910104, and 583910054 (6804 99th Street East, Bradenton).

Whereas, the aforementioned parcels are adjacent to the Braden River, a water supply for the City of Bradenton and

Whereas, these parcels are home to various indigenous flora and fauna, some of which may be protected species and

Whereas, proposed development will destroy natural habitats and increase the risk of damage to the water supply and adjacent residential properties and

Whereas, proposed development is inconsistent with the surrounding neighborhoods and contiguous residential lots are a minimum of one acre per home

We, the undersigned, petition Manatee County to maintain the current zoning designation (RSF-1) and deny any requests from the property owner(s) or developer(s) to rezone the aforementioned parcels.



A new development is being proposed near Braden Woods and River Club in Manatee County.  The land is currently zoned RSF-1, one single-family home per acre.  The developer is requesting that the zoning be changed to accommodate multiple homes per acre.

The land is located at 6804 99th Street East in Bradenton (Parcel IDs 583900006, 583910104, 583910054).

The proposed subdivision will be a gated community of 32 luxury homes situated on sensitive land that borders the Braden River, source of Bradenton's water supply. The homes will be constructed on lots that will be cleared of existing trees and vegetation. While a few areas will be designated "wetlands" they will be small, non-contiguous patches of nature, limiting the amount of wildlife that will be able to remain on this land.

We believe that too much of the "real Florida" is being devastated by over-development of sensitive areas and that more natural habitats must be preserved. Concerned citizens are petitioning Manatee County to deny the request to rezone the land to accommodate multiple homes per acre.
