Letter from the Chair of the Lake Sarasota Community Group

Dear Neighbors,

My name is Keith Russo. My wife, Sommer, and our boys love this neighborhood. That is why I volunteered to be considered for and was elected chairman by the members of the Lake Sarasota Community Group. Hence why I am now using this ID, rather than my personal one.

First, LSCG is not an HOA, as many of you may know. We are not interested in regulating your lives. We are avolunteer group open to all Lake Sarasota residents that are invested in our neighborhood and its safety and well-being. As such, this group has advocated on behalf of our community to local and county officials, kept the community informed of events and news that affect us, and coordinated community activities. Certain community members, like Tom Matrullo, should be applauded for doing a great deal to help us all. I am committed to continuing LSCG's tradition of advocating for your concerns and building community in every respect.

We have noticed that many people have concerns about our neighborhood,…

The night work is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. on both days. Please be cautious of the traffic control officers and flag men controlling the intersection.
