Sarasota Herald Tribune Comment on Arcades

The following is from today's editorial in ths SHT concerning arcades. Be sure to read the entire editorial.

At a public hearing Monday, city commissioners should dump the baggage-laden arcade policy, under which the city incentivizes the structures by allowing developers to encroach on the public space over arcades. The policy, approved as part of the downtown master plan, carries more risks than rewards.

We agree with the opinion offered here.
