Public Notice

The property owner of the proposed Grand Lake development, located in the South Sarasota 2050 designated Village area generally located east of I-75 and south of Clark Road, has proposed a new alternative form of development called a "Village Enclave" that, if approved, could be applied in the Sarasota 2050 Village/Open Space Resource Management Areas. 

The proposed policy includes locational criteria where a "Village Enclave" could be located and development standards for the "Village Enclave", such as the following:
1. allowing a reduction of open space, 
2. allowing a reduction of Greenbelt Buffer widths, 
3. excluding the affordable housing requirement, and 
4. acquiring density without the use of the transfer of development rights from off-site sources, as well as 
5. other standards found in Village development such as walkable neighborhoods.
The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing for this privately-initiated Comprehensive Plan Amendment to discuss the standards and criteria on September 15 at 6:30 p.m., or as soon thereafter as possible. The hearing will be held in the County Administration Center, Commission Chamber, 1660 Ringling Blvd. First Floor, Sarasota, Florida
