A coalition of Sarasota residents working toward quality progress for our city.
STOP! is a civic group formed to safeguard the growth and development of the City of Sarasota. Our focus concerns the city’s zoning regulations. Currently, these codes prevent formal citizen input and feedback on proposed development in our downtown while creating hulking buildings on narrow sidewalks, unrealistic traffic planning and walkability/ pedestrian hazards. The new Form-Based Code, currently under consideration, would reduce public input in all outlying areas of the City.
This website tells you who we are and what we do. It provides background and resources on the issues we face. Most importantly, it provides a guide to getting involved and making your voice heard.
Please explore our site and get to know us better; we hope you will want to join our effort.
