The Longboat Key Town Commission urged town staff last week to meet soon to discuss the Urban Land Institute's (ULI) recent findings. Last week, staff scheduled its first meeting to build on the momentum of the consultant's recommendations.
Town Manager Dave Bullock announced a special meeting for 1:30 p.m. Nov. 4 at Town Hall to discuss the recommendations.
ULI spent last week on the Key, interviewing residents and business owners, touring the island and drafting recommendations that will be submitted officially to the town in a 40-page document in the next 60 to 90 days.
That report will include an implementation strategy to accomplish the suggested goals.
The following strategies and recommendations were presented to the town Oct. 25:
• Build the community together
• Adapt to a changing market
• Focus on the future
• Relax rental restrictions
• Împlement early actions
• Complete the town center
• Locate the community/cultural center at the town center
• Improve mobility
