The Manatee County Planning Commission held a public hearing on April 14th, 2022 and two items on the agenda brought plenty of citizens in opposition.
The first item was a new residential project called Twin Rivers Estates, which would rezone approximately 42-acres to bring 126 single-family homes. This is within the existing Twin Rivers community, which is nearly built out and surrounds the proposed project.

The matter came to vote at 1:22:03 and ended with 3 votes for and 3 votes against, which means there was no recommendation from the Planning Commission. The matter now heads to the Manatee County Board of County Commissioner’s public hearing on May 5th, 2022. The case number is PLN2103-0122.
Next was an amendment to the general development plan of the Cross Creek community to add 15.2 acres with a 144 unit apartment complex. There was no shortage of residents letting the Planning Commission know why they didn’t want apartments there.
One resident alleged that Mr. Beruff walked past her in the audience and said “This is stupid!” She brought this up in the beginning of her comments at 2:27:40. She’s likely referring to Carlos Beruff, the owner of Medallion Homes, which is developing the Cross Creek community.
The commission votes on the matter at 2:57:39. The motion passed unanimously and goes to the Manatee County Board of County Commissioner’s public hearing on May 5th, 2022. The case number is PLN2108-0120.
