Alerts & Notifications

Project 411
Project 411 is a collaborative Citizen Notification System where citizens can opt-in to receive special news alerts from government agencies like Manatee County Government, Florida Department of Transportation, Health Department and more. It's a simple sign up process. Just fill in the form below, and you will be added to the contact list. If you have any questions please email neighborhoodconnections@mymanatee.org


Project Outreach
The purpose of Project Outreach is to bridge communication between government agencies, Homeowners Associations, Community Associations, and Neighborhood Associations and new residents. We want you to be the first to know when a project will be occurring in your neighborhood so you have enough time to actively plan for it or make public comment when applicable.

The form can be filled out by the HOA/Neighborhood Association or a neighborhood specialist from the Neighborhood Planning division will be in touch with you to update the record.

If you have any questions, please email neighborhoodconnections@mymanatee.org
