    Every time sarasota tries to help your community you complain,when they spent millions on new street lights and road repair,and slow down islands,everyone complained.when Walmart wanted to build in your community of martin L.king behind gas station east of 301 you said no we will open our own local stores.walmart would have made hundreds of local jobs in your backyard of your neighbors,still no stores,just empty field.why dont you just let sarasota beautify your neighborhood, you complain so much,they need to pick another place to spend our cities millions. i forgot they also just spent a ton of money remodeling your park at the corner of mlk and 301 as well as putting brand new apartments for all of the low income please just enjoy all the things the city is doing for your community instead of complaining about all that is handed to you.

    They should replace the old plaques with new ones of the names of all the people that have been killed in New Town. But again, I dont think they would have enough room.
