Sarasota County, Florida -- Sarasota County and the cities of Sarasota, Venice, and North Port have announced they will partner on a five-year consolidated plan for community development and affordable housing. Community visioning sessions will be held to explore such community needs as economic development, neighborhood improvements, special needs housing, services for the homeless, affordable housing and social services for low-income residents.

The two visioning sessions for the 2011-2016 consolidated plan will be held from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m. on the following dates and locations: 

  • Tuesday, March 1, at the Robert L. Taylor Community Complex, 1845 34th St., Sarasota
  • Thursday, March 10, at the North Port City Commission Chamber, 4970 City Hall Blvd., North Port

The  consolidated plan is a five-year strategy that determines how Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) funds are spent in the community.

The visioning sessions are free and the public is encouraged to attend. For questions about the sessions, contact Debra Figueroa at 941-951-3640, ext. 3762, or Debra.Figueroa@sarasotagov.com.
