The community has a chance to guide the future of parks, preserves and recreation services in Sarasota County over the next 20 years by participating in an online survey, but the deadline to do so is July 5.

The survey is part of a larger effort to develop a Master Plan that will provide a framework for enhancing the parks system and community input is crucial. The online survey is available at and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

"The time you invest in completing this survey will aid us in taking a resident-driven approach to making decisions that will enrich the future of our community and positively affect the lives of its residents" said Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Director Carolyn Brown.

In addition to the survey, Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources has been conducting public workshops, focus groups and citizen interviews in an effort to better understand our residents' priorities for parks, beach areas, trails, preserves, sports and recreation facilities, programs and services within the community.
