The City of Sarasota’s planning department is hosting three open houses to discuss new mixed-use zoning districts. The first open house is tonight (Aug. 24) from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Selby Public Library, 1331 First St.

A proposed zoning text amendment would create new mixed-use zone districts to incentivize on-site attainable housing along commercial corridors and in commercial centers.

The open houses will begin with a staff presentation, followed by break-out sessions on the following topics:

  • Future Land Use and Zoning
  • Mixed-Use Zone Districts
  • Attainable Housing
  • Design Standards
  • Transportation

Sessions are also scheduled for 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Sept. 20, at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3233, 124 S. Tuttle Ave. and from 5:30-7 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the Arlington Park Gymnasium, 2650 Waldemere St.

Questions can be sent to Communityworkshops@sarasotafl.gov, and additional information can be found by visiting sarasotafl.gov/attainable-housing-initiative.
