May 2019 Association Meeting
May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Important May Meeting…Your attendance is NEEDED! We request that you attend our next membership meeting on May 13th at 7:30PM at Sara Bay Country Club. We have 2 VERY IMPORTANT agenda items to discuss that could have a direct impact on the preservation and value of our historic neighborhood. We will be discussing the Sara Bay Marina project and Manatee Counties Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s) proposal. We desire your opinions and feedback on both these potential projects.
• Sara Bay Marina – The team that is in charge of the Sara Bay Marina project will be presenting their latest zoning plan for our review.
If you remember, the County Commissioners turned down Sara Bay Marina’s last attempt to rezone the entire “former church property” to commercial (ROR). They have revised those plans and are now presenting to us zoning that includes commercial and residential. Please don’t miss this opportunity to hear firsthand what is being proposed and your opportunity to ask questions.
• Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s) – We will be discussing and taking a poll of your stance regarding ADU’s. ADU’s are the county’s attempt to address affordable housing by allowing residents to place tiny homes, shipping cargo containers homes, and other types of “homes” (up to 1000 square feet), in their backyards. They are marketing this as “mother-in-law homes” however these homes could also be used as rental properties including Airbnb, and VRBO. This brings up a myriad of questions and concerns like traffic, parking, infrastructure, site lines, noise, and of course ultimately our property values. o Please don’t miss this opportunity to discuss this crucial topic and voice your opinion. Refreshments and donuts will be provided and of course, the bar will be open for cocktails and wine with our raffle drawings at the end.
Please attend this crucial meeting. We hope to see you there.
