Going Blue

The resort is the first to become a certified Blue Community.
by: Katie Johns Community Editor

The Resort at Longboat Key Club is now recognized as a Blue Community.

The club is the first to earn this certification from The Blue Community Observatory hosted by the Patel College of Global Sustainability at the University of South Florida, now an affiliate of the UNWTO International Network of Sustainable Tourism Observatories.

Blue Communities use strategies for a sustainable planet and healthy ocean. The observatory aims to provide tourism managers with information related to tourism impacts on environmental, social and economic impacts.
