Two public meetings planned for Parks Master Plan discussion

Community members are invited to share their thoughts on the future of Sarasota County's parks, preserves and reserves at two upcoming public workshops.

The workshops will feature previews of the forthcoming parks long range plan, which is aimed at preserving, protecting and enhancing some of our community's most valuable resources. The process started in 2015 and is expected to be completed next year. We have heard from you, your friends, neighbors and colleagues regarding needs; now please help us develop the direction of the final plan.

The workshops will be held at the following locations:

  • 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 8, at Gulf Gate Public Library, 7112 Curtiss Ave., Sarasota.
  • 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Dec. 16, at Woodmere Park, 3951 Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice.
