  • 0

SARASOTA, FL (WWSB) - Several groups in Sarasota are teaming up to push the City Commission to build a new Performing Arts Center as part of a bayfront redesign.

The Van Wezel Foundation is partnering with The Bay and the Sarasota Bayfront Planning Organization to launch SarasotaPerformingArtsCenter.com - a website that will promote the creation of a new multi-venue center on the 53-acre bayfront site between Boulevard of the Arts and 12th Street.

The Performing Arts Center is meant to be a centerpiece of the site's redesign.

The groups banding together hope to garner support so that come September, the City Commission will vote to move forward with the proposed plan.
