Hello Commissioners and County Administrator Harmer,I find this op-ed an interesting read considering what the county is trying to introduce into the "view" of Celery Field visitors and homeowners who live near Our Celery Field.There is no way that the county is meeting Sarasota's Zoning mission statement which is "Zoning's Fundamental Purpose is to Protect a Community's Health, Safety and Welfare.To have additional "ugly" folded into the view from Celery Mountain like Gabbert's proposed dump or maybe a Restaurant Depot is absolutely heart breaking. Where is the vision for our county? Are we that small in our thinking that green space is an affront to county government planning?We expect better from you.
Remaining hopeful you will all follow the zoning mission statement and support your voters demands (that are growing) to cease all sales of surplus lands surrounding Our Celery Field, it's yours too, why not join us?Respectfully,Adrien Lucas
"I tried watching the rowers from the west side of the lake looking east. It lasted about 10 seconds because my eyes were immediately drawn to all of the traffic constantly rushing past on I-75. C'mon, who doesn't love watching big semis at a public park? Extending a buffer wall between the interstate and the park does not make it any better, either.cc: Celery Field Advocates, Social Media Contacts and Interested Friends
