What is Keep The Country...Country?

The Old Miakka Community is asking the County to remove the option in the 2050 Plan that allows hamlets in the 6,000 acres in the NE corner of Sarasota (urban sprawl). This amendment
to the 2050 Plan does not ask to stop development, rather it asks that development be restricted to the
current zoning of 5, 10 or 160 acres.

Sarasota is losing it's countryside to urban and suburban developments. Hi Hat Ranch plans to build 10,000 homes east of I-75. Lakewood Ranch continues to spread eastward and
southward adding thousands of homes. A new 400 home development has been approved along eastern Fruitville Road.

Developers want to more than triple the density of land as currently zoned. The current zoning is the appropriate designation for eastern rural lands. This will soon be the only place left in
Sarasota where people can own horses, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, and pursue a country lifestyle. Please ask your County Commissioners to
Keep The Country...Country by removing
the hamlet option on this land.

If you want to support rural Sarasota (now and in the future) get involved. To get notices and information get on
Becky's email list: miakka1945@gmail.com

Together we can
Keep The Country...Country.
