Has the 2050 Plan hit the skids?


Does anyone remember the 2050 plan? The idea was to respect and preserve the rural character of Sarasota County east of I-75.

There was general agreement in favor of a concept -- that landowners could create master-planned communities east of I-75, in exchange for meeting higher standards of development and enhancing environmental protection. And, by supporting this alternative, environmentalists and others would accept development that protects and connects valuable natural assets. 
Those were the goals then. How can they be remembered and embraced again?

How's that working for us, facing the prospect of Racetrac 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?
