As part of a deal to buy utilities infrastructure from Dolomite Utilities Corp., Sarasota County could also acquire 115 acres for a new sports complex.
Sarasota County commissioners will meet for a workshop Tuesday, Nov. 26, to consider details of a plan to spend $2.2 million to buy a parcel at the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Tuttle Avenue. The county has asked that the seller remove fence encroachments on the property before the deal closes, but they have not responded, according to a county memo.
Parks and Recreation Director Carolyn Brown said during a Nov. 19 phone interview said there will be workshops soliciting public input next year for a parks and recreation master plan, which would include suggestions for the 115-acre property. There are currently no plans for what type of sports complex to build at the site.
Commissioners will also consider proposals to purchase county-owned land near Fruitville Road and Coburn Road. Benderson Development and Goodsports Enterprises Global have pitched sharply contrasting plans for the property. Benderson has suggested a manufacturing facility while Goodsports envisions a sprawling sports complex.
