First event scheduled for Aug. 24 at Selby Library
The City of Sarasota’s Planning Department is hosting three open houses to discuss new mixed-use zoning districts and to receive public comments, city staff has announced.
The first open house is scheduled from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 24, at the Selby Public Library, which stands at 1331 First St. in downtown Sarasota, a news release says.
A potential zoning text amendment “would create new mixed-use zone districts to incentivize on-site attainable housing along commercial corridors and in commercial centers,” the release explains.
Each open house will begin with a staff presentation, followed by break-out sessions to foster conversation on the following topics, the release adds:
- Future land use and zoning.
- Mixed-use zone districts.
- Attainable housing.
- Design standards.
The second workshop is to be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3233, which is located at 124 S. Tuttle Ave., the release notes. The third will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at the Arlington Park Gymnasium, which stands at 2650 Waldemere St.
