Sarasota bayfront nsyjm8

The Sarasota Bayfront Planning Organization last week issued a Request for Qualifications to find a design team that will lead the creation of a comprehensive master plan for the bayfront area around the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. The 42-acre city-owned parcel has been the subject of great discussion in recent years. The Sarasota Bayfront Planning Organization is a 501(c)(3) that was created to develop a sustainable master plan for the site and to propose an ongoing improvement plan for the site. Click here for details about the Request for Qualifications; submissions are due by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 1.
