Plans for a massive new development are starting to take shape in west Bradenton.  Manatee county planners have already met with the owner of farm land about potential plans.

The new development would be a Lakewood Ranch-type community and is located off El Conquistador Parkway and 53rd Avenue.  It would include 8,000 homes.

Several public hearings will be scheduled to get input on the development.
