From a recent issue of SRQ's PAGE 1.
"At dinner parties, the tennis court or golf course, the only conversation I hear about the development in downtown Sarasota is negative. People in general lament the willy nilly construction and the loss of the atmosphere which made Sarasota so charming. Basically, in the last few years, the out-of-control development has destroyed the enchantment that was Sarasota. Can we save what is left?" -Sarasota resident Paula Holleran, in response to the Thursday, December 15 PAGE 1 quote by City Commissioner Ken Shelin.
