We are pleased to announce that Peninsula Bay has received its first stamp of approval from the Manatee County Planning Commission. Our development team presented to the planning commission on July 14th and received a 5-1 vote to recommend approval for the general development plan and the rezoning request. We will make a similar presentation to the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners on September 1st.
“We are happy to have earned a vote of confidence from the planning commission,” said Whiting Preston. “We believe our vision for Peninsula Bay will be a tremendous benefit to the area, especially in terms of jobs, housing options and tax revenues. Our tagline has been ‘connecting people to the water’ and we are passionate about that. We are also dedicated to protecting and enhancing the local ecosystem and to reflecting the style and spirit of Cortez. We look forward to continuing with our plans in the months to come.”
