Manatee commission delays vote on controversial Parrish subdivision

MANATEE -- For a second time, the Manatee County Commission has delayed a decision on the controversial Springfield subdivision, a 12-acre project in Parrish for which the developer is seeking rezoning to allow the construction of 19 housing units.

The project has drawn objections from several dozen Parrish residents who are concerned it will disrupt the area’s tranquil quality.

The commission, which first deferred a decision on the rezoning request Nov. 4, now plans to take up the rezoning request in February.
