Sarasota, FL: The public has another opportunity to weigh in on the future of transportation in Sarasota when the City hosts two community workshops later this month.
The City is in the second phase of “Sarasota in Motion,” the first citywide transportation master plan. Sarasota 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.
Anyone who lives, works or plays in Sarasota is invited to attend one of the two upcoming workshops and share their thoughts on what they would change about the City’s transportation network, how our streets can be safer and how travel options can be expanded.
Both workshops will be held Tuesday, Oct. 22, with two options offered that day:
- Workshop No. 1: 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Selby Public Library auditorium, 1331 First St.
- Workshop No. 2: 4-5:15 p.m. at Selby Goodwill Manasota-Newtown, 1781 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way
Both meetings will cover the same material, so those interested can attend whichever option they prefer.
In addition to the workshops, an interactive online feedback map is now available at SarasotaInMotion.com. Citizens can zoom in on specific streets, intersections and routes on the interactive map and post their comments and ideas.
