Commissioners vote to terminate contract with Lido Pavilion developers

Lido Pavilion Update with City Commissioners

SARASOTA (WWSB) - City Commissioner voted Tuesday night to end a long fight with the developers who were in charge of the Lido Pavilion.

Commissioners voted 4-1 to terminate the agreement with developers and pay them a settlement.

The developers had plans to update the Lido Pavilion with a restaurant, Tiki bar and splash pad, but the community was concerned about extra noise and traffic to the area.

The developers ended up backing out from the project and demanded financial compensation for what they’re out having spent years working on the project.

Commissioners voted to end the contract and pay the developers, but had no further discussions on what the future plan for Lido Pavilion may be.
