SKA actions on proposed Siesta Promenade project

Updated August 7, 2017

SKA is actively working to follow the progress of the Benderson Development proposal to build a mixed-use development at the corner of Stickney Point Road and US-41.  Our goal is to ensure that the final development has the least possible impact on Siesta Key and its residents.  At the moment all proposals are preliminary, but SKA will keep our members informed as the process progresses to stages that are ready for public discussion.

On July 25, 2017, County Planners deemed the revised application submitted June 28, 2017 Incomplete and Insufficient and sent two documents to Benderson Development listing issues to be addressed.  After the developer has made the required revisions and additions,  County Staff will again review the documents for completeness within 30 days of resubmission.  See the revised timeline below based on an assumed resubmission by Benderson 30 days after receipt of the notices of Insuffiency and Incompleteness.  All dates are approximate and subject to change.

Documents filed with Sarasota County

Below are links to the documents filed with Sarasota County by the developer along with the latest advisories on the project from the County Planner.  Newest documents are at the top.

Please note that the July 2017 documents are public record but are not posted on the Sarasota County website because they are not open for public comment until the developer has had an opportunity to address the issues identified.  SKA has been given permission to share them with our members so you may have the latest information.

Please do not send comments to County Staff until the documents are finalized after Benderson responds to the items in the letters.  However, if you feel you need clarification of any items addressed in the letters, please send specific questions to Todd Dary, County Planning Project Manager.
