Big Pass Dredging Update – November 2018

SKA is working for a DO NO HARM solution for Siesta Key and Big Pass

In October, the civil court denied the SKA Verified Complaint to prohibit the dredging of Big Pass on the basis that it violates the Sarasota County Comprehensive Plan.

However, the ruling on the complaint opened the door to alternative avenues for the challenge, so SKA has filed an Amended Verified Complaint and is currently waiting for the city to respond during the required 20 day period.

We greatly appreciate your continued contributions to support legal expenses and representation on behalf of Siesta Key! You can make a tax-deductible contribution to SKEDF of any amount to help us continue defending the Siesta Key environment.

Please refer to our Big Pass Project Page for more information on the impact of the proposed project and less harmful alternatives. SKA fully supports the need for Lido Beach renourishment but strongly advocates for sources of sand that do not endanger Siesta Key or the Big Pass environment.
