Approximately 50 people met yesterday to discuss the future of Bayfront Park Recreation Center.
At the meeting, architect Lisa Wannemacher, of Wannemacher Jensen Architects, presented a prospectus plan for a proposed community center that updated a 2009 draft Master Concept Plan created by the town and Sarasota County with public input. The plan Wannemacher presented at Wednesday’s meeting included a kayak/canoe launch, boardwalk, community garden and an active recreation field.
If the plans move forward, Key citizens could have the final say on the project via a referendum vote in November at the earliest. Nearly two-thirds of voters rejected a community center plan in 2004.
A second public meeting is scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, at the Recreation Center.
