Development Review Process

On January 9, 2020, Manatee County Board of County Commissioners adopted the Administrative Procedures Manual via Resolution R-20-004 in order to maintain compliance with newly adopted House Bill 7103. This manual, in conjunction to Ordinance 20-06, defines both Completeness Review and Sufficiency Review. The manual walks applicants through the entire Development Review Procedure, from Pre-application, to final review of application and Board hearing (where applicable).
