Manatee County commissioners will vote on plans to construct a 250-room hotel next to the Bradenton Area Convention Center in Palmetto during Tuesday’s board meeting.
The county is working with the city of Palmetto, its Community Redevelopment Agency and Improvement Network Development Partners, LLC to develop a full-service, six-story hotel at 1 Haben Blvd. in Palmetto.
More than 17,000 square feet of public function space is proposed, including an 8,000-square-foot ballroom. A full-service restaurant occupying 4,150 square feet and 240 seats also is proposed.
“The agreement that county commissioners will consider on Tuesday represents a unique public-private partnership that will bring more tourism to Palmetto, business to the Convention Center and economic benefits to our entire community,” Manatee County Administrator Ed Hunzeker said.
The vote is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
