- Sarasota will never be for anyone young. I have lived here for 20 years and it is by far the most sleepy city in Florida. Quiet, boring and the sidewalks roll up at 8:00. This city is for old people and bitter wealthy young people.
- The noise ordinance is not "of a different era" as stated here. It came about in recent years due to two things, more residential units in the downtown area, and the disregard of most musician of the people who live in the downtown. We lived smack in the middle of downtown from 1990-2000 when there was no noise ordinance. It was not fun. Whether you are 20 or 80 you want your home to be your sanctuary. And one man's music is another's noise. On the other hand we are in the music business - have been located in Sarasota for almost 25 years and have held more than one outdoor amplified event in the downtown area with no complaints. That's because we act in a professional manner and part of that is having respect for other people.
As to affordable housing, the price points that are being bandied around will not be found affordable by most "young professionals". Do you really want to live in a 500 SF apartment? And pay $800+ for the privilege?
