Strategic Initiative – Membership

  • Noise Control
  • Vacation Rental Control 

Following their April 26th meeting, the Board is working on setting up a committee to work on this initiative that will identify the scope of this initiative and establish action items.  Membership volunteers:

  • Noise Control – Ricki Lindsay, Bay Point Park
  • Vacation Rental Control – Leslie Spangler, Alta Vista
  • All aspects- Eileen Normile – Hudson Bayou 

 The scope of this 2024 project is scaled down from a much larger initiative “Code Enforcement”.  The intent is to work on these action items, but also move forward on transitioning from our traditional reactive approach to Code Enforcement to one that is more proactive.

Code Enforcement is more than Code Compliance

People not familiar with the way Sarasota Government is organized have expressed difficulty understanding “Code Enforcement”.   No one department has Code Enforcement responsibility, rather responsibilities are split between Code Compliance (Development Services), Public Works, Parks and Rec, Risk Management, Utilities, Parking, the Police, and others.  To effectively report a violation, it is imperative to know which department handles what code violations.  The 3 More Information pictures below are linked to the City’s website pages designed to help people understand who handles what, most reported violations with code references, important contact phone numbers, how the process works and answers to frequently asked questions.
