Follow-up questions to the June 30 public meeting on the Benderson Siesta Promenade development included:
Q. When and where is the meeting on the changes to the Critical Area Plan (CAP) (height and density) that the County Commissioners will need to approve for this project?
Q. How does the public influence (or request) the taffic/road study to include all roads, even roads such as Midnight Pass going north and south?
As of July 14, 2016, Benderson had not submitted an application for the Siesta Promenade development, though it is anticipated by the end of July. Once the applications for CAP and Rezone are submitted, the County will schedule a CAP boundary public hearing and begin review of the rezoning petition. The CAP boundary hearing will occur approximately 8-10 weeks after submittal and will address the boundary, multi-family use, and density. The public hearing for the rezoning will occur approximately 6-8 months after submittal and will include the CAP and rezoning.
After applications are submitted, the County will collect correspondence from the public. Persons notified of the neighborhood workshop, or attending and providing an address, will be notified of the public hearings by mail. Otherwise, individuals may provide their complete mailing address to the County. Addresses will be forwarded for inclusion in the Applicant's mailing list. Applications submitted are posted to the County website for viewing and downloading under the tab titled "Petition Applications Filed".
Individuals can contact the County after the application has been filed for a copy of the transportation analysis. Traffic analysis is determined by County and State staff. The County can provide the contact info after the analysis has been submitted. he contact for this project is Todd Dary, DRI Coordinator, Sarasota County Planning Services, 1660 Ringling Blvd. Sarasota, FL 34236.
