Anyone interested in preserving an important part of Bradenton's history should take a look at what is happening with the Point Pleasant neighborhood and a proposed ordinance designed to protect it. The early home to many of Bradenton's pioneers and professionals during the 1920-1960s, this tree-scaped architectural gem of an area is under assault and being opposed by developers who intend on purchasing homes, knocking them down and replacing them with commercial buildings and parking lots.
Bradenton's City Planning Department has studied this danger to longtime residents and has drafted a proposed ordinance which would create "The Point Pleasant Neighborhood Conservation District" to protect and preserve the character of our neighborhood. This proposed ordinance received the approval this week of Bradenton's Planning and Zoning Commission and will be considered by the City Council this Wednesday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m.
Please voice your concern over the destruction of Point Pleasant and your support of the proposed ordinance (#2976) by contacting the City Council members:
