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
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.
