Community News
 
The Downtown Sarasota Condominium Association, led by President Patrick Gannon, has succeeded in urging the City of Sarasota to send email notifications about development applications submitted to the city for review.
 
 
Construction of two new roundabouts on U.S. 41 is expected to begin this fall. The two-lane roundabouts will replace intersections with traffic lights at 10th and 14th streets, and are the first of at least 16 roundabouts planned throughout the city over the next six years.

The city is investing nearly $150,000 to restore the mermaid fountain at Pineapple Park — and that’s just the beginning of its plans to improve the downtown space. Click the link above to learn more.
 
 
Our building representative, Ann Godmere, attended their board meeting on Wednesday, February 1, 2017. Highlights from the meeting include:
 
HUB Update
A Quick Update from the HuB - Today (2.13.17) we begin re-building the HuB at our new location. Every time we move we leave something behind, but we have found that through re-construction, we are given the chance to reflect on what makes our community of entrepreneurs and creatives great.
 
HUB Overview
Rich and Assunta Swier started the HUB back in 2009. As many of you know, they are leaving their current location on the corner of Fruitville and Orange, and moving to Palm Tower (1345 Main Street) this month. Renovations are ongoing and there is hope they will be complete by late April. The Palm Tower will be renamed HUB, and the former HUB building will be renamed to BOLD. BOLD's owner is Jesse Biter. He will be renovating the building and using the same business model that Rich and Anna instituted at the HUB; fostering innovation and local growth by creating environments in which entrepreneurs and small business owners can live, work, and thrive. Rich and Anna also purchased the old Golden Apple Dinner theater, which is also under construction, and will serve as additional space to grow their businesses. A few of the business they started and grew include Offers.com, Dealers United, and BioLucid. They are also committed to the beautification of downtown Sarasota, and enticing a younger demographic to move to Sarasota to grow their businesses and raise their families. It's working. Just last year, they had 15,000 foot traffic inquiries and just as many phone calls and e-requests.
 
Homeless Committee Goals
  • Being a conduit for positive communications.
  • Advocating for more policing downtown including more officers and longer hours of active patrolling.
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of the several efforts being made by the city to provide more and improved services for the homeless population.
  • Follow up with data illustrating the economic impact that persons without homes and without services are having on the downtown merchants and vitality of the city.

Transportation Committee
A downtown circulator, a la Uber like concept, is being introduced to downtown Sarasota in the near future. Six electric vehicles will be stationed at the Palm Garage. Residents will be provided with a mobile phone app to download and use, just like Uber's app. This is an on-demand service. There will also be a phone number to call should you not want to use a mobile phone app. The difference is, IT'S FREE! Tips are welcome of course. The city is paying for it via advertising car wraps. The service is mainly for downtown Sarasota but the final service area is not available at this date.
 
Greenspace Committee
This committee is very concerned with building developers not replacing the trees they take down to make way for their buildings. The board created a statement of support and are sending it to this group: Support for City Tree Mitigation Ordinance.
 
Mission - “We support the creation of an articulated vision and a long-term master plan for the Sarasota Bayfront area that will establish a cultural and economic legacy for the region while ensuring open, public access to the bayfront.”
