Developer will pay for Mauna Loa Entrance

Excellent News: Word arrived today that HealthSouth Corporation, which is building an addition to its Rehabilitation Facility on the north side of Bee Ridge Rd., has offered to pay the cost of installing an embellished median at the entrance on Mauna Loa.

The entrance is being reconfigured to satisfy traffic requirements due to the upgrade of the HealthSouth facility. Work is expected to begin soon.

This generous gesture would not have been possible without the intervention of Sarasota Neighborhood Services, which confirmed the offer this evening, and to whose dedicated staff we now owe yet another debt of thanks.

In addition, Neighborhood Services confirms that Lake Sarasota still has $2132.84 in grant funds. These need to be used by Sept. 30,  on projects that meet grant guidelines. If you have ideas, send them along or come to our next meeting on June 9.
