Small Management Plans, Minor Plan Amendments and Incompatible Use & Linear Facilities Policy Requests Highlights

Management Plans for Properties 160 Acres and Smaller

The Office Of Environmental Services has received the following land management plans for properties 160 acres and smaller in size. Acquisition and Restoration Council (ARC) members who wish to have any of these plans placed on a formal ARC agenda for discussion should contact Hank Vinson, ARC Staff Director, prior to the date indicated below. Please note that at least three ARC members must make the request for a plan for a property smaller than 160 acres in size to be scheduled for an ARC agenda. If we do not receive three requests by the stated deadline to schedule a plan for consideration at an ARC meeting, the plan will be approved.

Katie Pierola Sunset Park

City of Bradenton Beach, Lease No. 4045

Katie Pierola Sunset Park is a 0.46 acre beach access sunset viewing park located in the 2200 block of Gulf Drive North, within the corporate limits of the City of Bradenton Beach. The key management objective for the park continues to be an essential point for public beach access. Abutting the Gulf of Mexico, the park’s location provides exceptional sunset views and year round access to the Gulf beaches.

The City of Bradenton Beach Comprehensive Plan’s Future Land Use Map designates the Katie Pierola Park as Park/Recreation and Open Space. The management plan proposes rezoning of the Park to Public Recreation Area (PRA), which is consistent with implementing the Park/Recreation and Open Space land use classification and for providing public access to the beaches.

The link below contains the plan and associated maps.

Katie Pierola Sunset Park

The plan will be approved by the Division of State Lands unless three ARC members request that it be placed on an agenda for consideration at a future Council meeting. The deadline for requesting that it be considered by ARC is  July 28, 2016.

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Mr. Alan Garrett with the City of Bradenton Beach at agarret@cityofbradentonbeach.com
