SKA actions on proposed Siesta Promenade project

Updated September 30, 2018

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. 

Projected timeline UPDATE

Based on the announcement of county staff notices of sufficiency and completeness of the revised application, the following are rough estimates of key dates.
  • County Staff sufficiency declaration: July 17, 2018
  • End of County Staff formal review: August 31, 2018
  • First public hearing (Planning Commission): November 15, 2018
  • County Commission public hearing: December 12, 2018
Please be aware that these are estimates based on the timelines provided in the County Fact Sheet.  All are subject to change.  The county will announce all public hearings, and SKA will keep members informed of announcements as they occur.
