Help Establish A Sarasota Green Policy

What: City Commission will discuss preserving and enhancing greenspace
When: Monday, October 15, during the 6:00 PM Session
Where: City Hall - First Street and Orange Avenue
What You Can Do: Attend to show support and email the Commissioners

At this meeting, we will have a unique opportunity to increase the quality of our lives by urging the Commission to preserve and enhance our greenspace downtown as well as develop an overall green policy for the city, including the protection of our coastal waters.

For simplicity, greenspace refers to trees, flowers, shrubs and grass.

We are asking for a new Green Policy that clearly articulates the importance of greenspace, providing that the destruction of any public greenspace be only a last resort, not a first option, and then only with appropriate mitigation.

It is essential that we show widespread community support for this initiative.

Ways you can help include:
  • Attending on Oct. 1st and bringing your friends and neighbors with you,
  • Forwarding this message to your friends and neighbors via email, hard copy and word-of-mouth,
  • Emailing the Commissioners (addresses below) to express your support for more greenspace
  • Calling 954.4115 and asking to leave one message for all five Commissioners.
Thanks for your help in letting our Commissioners know how important this issue is to Sarasota's residents.
