The Longboat Key Town Commission will discuss on first reading and public hearing an ordinance that would ask voters whether to allow tourism use with a maximum of 300 units on the Longboat Key Club’s Islandside property at a special meeting at 1 p.m. today.
The ordinance calls for a special election May 12, 2015.
Sarasota attorney John Patterson, who represents Key Club owner Ocean Properties Ltd., wrote in a Nov. 9 letter to the commission that his client “wishes to redevelop a portion of its property in Islandside including residential and tourism (a hotel, a meeting center, and related facilities, including restaurants).”
Ocean Properties does not seek an increase in density for the property.
