SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. -- A Lakewood Ranch developer is hoping to get approval from the county commission Wednesday to expand into Sarasota County.

According to the Sarasota Herald Tribune, the expansion will allow hundreds of new homes to be built south of University Parkway. It would also connect Lakewood Ranch to Fruitville Road east of the interstate with the addition of new roads.

The developer will go before the Sarasota County Commission Wednesday afternoon.

We'll show you what happens tonight on ABC 7 News at 5:30.
