All agree: Bradenton Housing boom not waning

An article by Duane Marsteller of The Herald writes: Manatee County's white-hot residential construction boom won't be cooling off anytime soon, if developers' intentions are any indication.

Developers proposed more than 22,000 new homes in 2005, according to a Herald review of plans submitted to the county, Bradenton and Palmetto. That's in addition to the more than 9,600 houses, townhomes, condominiums and apartments that the county and two cities approved during the year.

"Somewhat staggering," was how county Commissioner Ron Getman, the board's 2005 chairman, described the numbers.

Officials, planners and developers offered various reasons for the higher amount of development proposed and approved last year, including strong market demand, longer review periods and the county's elimination of the rural subdivision designation.

But all agree: They don't foresee the trend ending anytime soon.
