Commission to vote on $605,000 parking deal


Date: October 5, 2009
by: Robin Roy | City Editor


City Commissioners will vote today on a proposed $605,000 agreement with the Sarasota Opera concerning the coming Palm Avenue parking garage.

The opera has agreed to release the 1.5-acre parking easement between the back of its building and the lot where the garage will be built.

In exchange, the city would give the Sarasota Opera $605,000 in TIF funds and an annual allotment of 1,077 parking permits in the garage for three years.

The opera would then receive those parking permits at a cost of $45 to $50 each for the next seven years.
