Alternative Housing Strategies


The Alternative Housing Strategies Committee is interested in diversifying the local housing stock by facilitating a wider range of alternative housing opportunities, from shipping container houses to tiny homes on foundation to bungalow courts and everything in between. This group works with Manatee County Government departments, local developers, and community organizations to assess and maximize the feasibility and potential impact of non-traditional housing options in Manatee County. 



The Mentoring Committee’s goal is to determine the viability of a mentorship program between senior Manatee County Government Officials and young aspiring Manatee County Government employees. The committee aims to eventually develop and implement a mentoring program.
