On February 14, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners accepted the Manatee Protection Plan (MPP). According to “Action Item” established under 8.1 Implementation Action, 8.1.1 Adoption and Permitting of MPP, the County will incorporate the MPP and a corresponding amendment to Coastal Element (CST) Policy 1.4.7: Manatee Protection Plan. Therefore, Staff from Charlotte County Community Services is requesting to amend CST Policy 1.4.7: Manatee Protection Plan.
On March 27, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners (Board) approved this text amendment for transmittal to the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) and other State review agencies for review and comment.
On April 27, 2018, the DEO issued a letter stating that it had reviewed the proposed amendment pursuant to Sections 163.3184(2) and (3), Florida Statutes (F.S.), and has identified “No Comment” related to important State resources and facilities within its authorized scope of review that will be adversely impacted by the amendment if adopted. All other State review agencies also had no comments.
If the Board of County Commissioners approves this petition, “Action Item”, established under 8.1 Implementation Action, 8.1.1 Adoption and Permitting of MPP, is achieved.
