Sarasota Conservation Committee meets the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 in the conference room at Lucky's Market, 3501 S Tamiami Trail #430, Sarasota, FL 34239.
On February 12th we will update on:
1) The 2050 Comprehensive Plan Amendment initiated by Pat Neal and Grand Lakes, which removed the contiguous, commercial town center requirement from the 2050 Plan. Neal was also granted in his rezone petition, extreme reductions in greenbelts, open space requirements and flood plane restrictions.
When the Board of County Commissioner's voted to approve these petitions, we donated to support the Serenoa Lakes neighborhoods lawsuit against Sarasota County wirh Grand Lakes. The lawsuits and hearings are ongoing.
2). A rezone petition and Comprehensive Plan Amendment to double the density of a 2050 Hamlet at the corner of Fruitville and Verna Rd. Planning Consultant Don Neu and the developer are also asking the county to run sewer services to the end of the county in order to acquire these density increases.
3). Update on Gabbert's construction recycle facility at the Celery Fields.
4). Update on recent action with the City of Sarasota with the Master Plan, citizens participation and Walkability.
