County meetings involve more changes to 2050 Comprehensive Plan

Windfall for developers?
Public Notice

Proposed Amendment to the Sarasota County Comprehensive Plan
The Sarasota County Planning and Development Services Department will hold two public meetings on proposed Comprehensive Plan Amendment No. 2015-G. Both meetings will present the same information. These are not public hearings. The purpose of the meeting is to inform the public about the content of the proposed amendment and to seek comments and suggestions regarding the amendment.
The public meetings will be held on:

Date:                 January 18, 2017
Time:                 6:00 p.m.
Location:            Gulf Gate Library, 7112 Curtiss Ave., Meeting Room B, Sarasota

Date:                 January 25, 2017
Time:                 6:00 p.m.
Location:            Englewood Sports Complex, 1300 S. River Rd, Englewood
The publicly-initiated amendment is related to the required Open Space and Greenbelts for 2050 Village developments, and proposes to revise Policies VOS5.1, VOS1.2.a, and VOS2.1 of the Sarasota County Comprehensive Plan, Future Land Use Chapter, Sarasota 2050 RMA System section, and other policies as necessary.
The amendments could allow the County Commission to:

1. Grant requests for exceptions and/or reduction of the required 500-foot Greenbelt widths of a 2050 Village, with established criteria; and

2. Grant requests to reduce the Open Space of a 2050 Village to less than the required 50%, but to no less than a minimum of 33%, with established criteria.
