Sarasota, FL:  Everyone who lives, works and plays in Sarasota is invited to get on board as the City embarks on Sarasota in Motion, its first citywide transportation master plan.

Sarasota in Motion logoSarasota in Motion will serve as a playbook for how the City not only invests in transportation infrastructure, but also how it achieves the community’s long-term quality of life goals.

 As part of the effort, City staff will host lunchtime and evening public visioning workshops on Tuesday, June 4:

  •  11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Bayfront Community Center, 803 N. Tamiami Trail
  • 5-7 p.m. at the Robert L. Taylor Community Complex, 1845 34th St.

Those unable to attend a meeting in person are encouraged to complete the initial Sarasota in Motion online survey, now open at sarasotainmotion.com. The quick and easy survey asks about citizens’ use of and priorities for Sarasota’s transportation system. The survey will be open through the end of June.

“It’s important that we hear from as many residents and visitors as possible as we formulate a holistic transportation plan for the city, how people get around and improvements that can be made,” said Planning Director Steve Cover. “At the end of this process, we’ll be prioritizing projects and recommendations that will shape what transportation and mobility in Sarasota will look like over the next 25 years.”
