On Friday, the owners of the Ringling Shopping Center took the battle over a Walmart Supercenter once proposed at the site to Lakeland.
John P. Harlee III, attorney for Louis and Diana Doyle, filed a petition for certeriori with Florida's Second District Court of Appeal in Lakeland Dec. 6, according to court records.
The suit asks for an appeal of Circuit Court Judge Kimberly Carlton Bonner's decision to uphold the Sarasota City Commission's Feb. 23 denial of a site plan for the 98,000-square-foot supercenter, according to an email from Sarasota City Attorney Bob Fournier to commissioners.
Fournier said in a Dec. 10 voicemail message he would be unable to comment on the case until he finishes reading the petition.

- I concur with Bill E. This site would be a wonderful campus with ample parking, a park that could be expanded and plenty of room to house, feed & provide the myriad of services these folks need to get back into society. Plus the close county services would be an added bonus and reduce staff transportation issues between police/sheriff offices. And finally, the buildings are immediately available and with schools near by the kids could regularly attend classes. Lets see if we can this project off of the ground and finally address the homeless needs in coordinated and responsible manner. Mike R.
- This might be a great place for housing the homeless run by the sheriffs department. Just reuse the buildings and plenty of asphalt for expansion such as portable buildings and tents.
