We've got three fabulous projects in the works right now in Sarasota: the new bayfront, enhancement of Selby Gardens, and a proposed new hall for the Sarasota Orchestra. These are all projects that will make Sarasota an even better place than it is. So. . . . please get them moving as soon as possible.
