The Manatee County Planning Commission recommended approval of Pat Neal’s Woodbrook II subdivision Thursday, Feb. 13.
At its monthly meeting, the commission OK’d a preliminary site plan for project, which calls for 77 single-family homes to be built on 53.78 acres south of Whitfield Avenue, between Prospect Road and Lockwood Ridge Road.
Woodbrook II is not considered the second phase of Neal’s Woodbrook community, a nearby subdivision off Lockwood Ridge Road that features cottage-home series priced in the mid-to-high $100,000s and low $200,000s.
Woodbrook II will even soon get a name change, said Leisa Weintraub, Neal’s vice president of marketing.
“Woodbrook II will have a completely different product (than Woodbrook),” Weintraub said. “We’re excited about the community because the area is enormously popular with people.”
Because the planning commission is an advisory body, the Manatee County Board of County Commissioners will have a final say on the site plan for the project.
