The Manatee County Board of County Commissioners will review a plan for a 610-home community on the west side of Rye Road, south of Upper Manatee River Road, at its land-use meeting Thursday afternoon.
The development, a project called Del Tierra, calls for a net density of about three homes per acre and is being proposed by developer D.R. Horton.
Country Meadows, a community just west of the proposed development, has about one home per acre.
D.R. Horton’s site plan proposes a second entrance to Del Tierra through Country Meadows to Upper Manatee River Road.
A traffic analysis conducted by the county anticipates a 7% traffic increase in Country Meadows if the site plan is approved.
The Manatee County Planning Commission recommended approval of the project with a 4-3 vote at its meeting Dec. 12.
Del Tierra would occupy 233 acres.
Commissioners will have final say on the community at its 1:30 p.m. meeting Thursday, in the commission chambers at 1112 Manatee Avenue West.
If approved, construction on Del Tierra would begin this year and be completed in 2017.
