Manatee Fruit Co. is pleased to report that the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners has approved plans for a proposed master-planned community known as Peninsula Bay. Whiting Preston and his team appeared before the Commission today to answer questions and discuss details of the proposal.
“We are thrilled by the decision of the county commissioners and look forward to the next steps in making our vision of Peninsula Bay a reality,” said Mr. Preston. “We are tremendously excited about the potential positive impact this neighborhood could create for the entire region. We thank the county staff and Planning and Zoning Board for their recommendation of approval to the Board, as well as everyone who spoke today on our behalf.”
Located on 360 acres along Cortez Road, Peninsula Bay is currently zoned for planned development and primarily consists of an agricultural operation surrounded by residential neighborhoods. The development team envisions the property as a waterfront community of up to 1950 homes with a boat ramp and kayak launch, a 67-acre lake that would buffer existing mangroves, and a waterfront area for shopping and dining.
