Neighborhood Associations - CONA

      - monthly meeting -
  April 92018
     at 7 p .m.  
importance of our
comprehensive plan

and a report on the Bath and Racquet Club application
On Monday, April 9, 2018 please join CONA for a thorough discussion by Jon Thaxton regarding our county comprehensive plan.Learn how this document expresses our vision of what we want our community to be and how it drives the decisions made by our local government regarding development and redevelopment. That our plan for smart growth was carefully-crafted by citizens participating in a long process that resulted in a vision that garnered national recognition and awards will be covered. The examination will reveal the devolution of our comprehensive plan through gradual changes that failed to adhere to the inherent vision expressed by the community.
  Understanding and participating in this process is essential to reviving our vision in time to avoid the Browardization of Sarasota through compromise of the smart growth goals of our vision that include protecting neighborhood compatibility and the environment, limiting traffic congestion, constraining urban sprawl, and making growth pay its own way rather than being subsidized by existing taxpayers and degrading our quality of life.
   Following our traditional half-hour social beforehand, the meeting will open with Ben Cannon bringing us up to date on the redevelopment application for the Bath and Racquet Club.
  Q A will follow both discussions.  

social 6:30 p.m. -  meeting 7:00 p.m.
