This morning, a few dozen protesters gathered outside the Sarasota County Administration Building at 1660 Ringling Boulevard in advance of the Public Hearing on Petition 17-01 by TST Ventures, LLC.
As the hearing got underway, County staff made two overflow rooms available to accommodate all the attendees who gathered to witness, and possibly speak during, today’s public hearing.
