Anna Maria commercial height: still 27 feet

The story in the March 14 issue of The Islander regarding the Anna Maria planning and zoning board’s recommendations on the comprehensive plan and future land-use map contained an error regarding the board’s recommendation for the height of commercial construction.

The story inadvertently indicated the board had recommended the commercial height limit as proposed in the comp plan be changed from 27 feet to 37 feet.

However, the board did not adopt any change to the 27-foot recommendation for new commercial construction as the story stated, and voted 4-2 to recommend the 27-foot height limit.

The Anna Maria City Commission will schedule a final public hearing on the comp plan and FLUM after it receives the recommendations from the P&Z board.
