    Sad to see these changes? Really? Everyone wants infrastructure and nobody wants to pay for it. If this is the biggest challenge facing Sarasota, Sarasota doesn't have any problems. What other areas do you recommend to help raise money? A bake sale maybe?

    I have lived here for thirty years, and I remember the old downtown. It really wasn't someplace you wanted to go. There were only scattered places of interest and it had a seedy feel in spots. The city planners have done a great job shaping the downtown we see today.

    Here's something to consider for assisting downtown workers: how about offering monthly parking passes at a reduced rate? That would take care of a portion of the complaints. And for everyone else--the first 90 minutes are free! The paltry sum for staying the next few hours is nothing in contrast to the time wasted in hunting for a spot to park.

    Living here my entire life it's honestly sad to see these sorts of changes happening to my.....no, our city. I understand times are tough but enough is enough. How about we looks at other areas to help raise money for the city or give a parking pass or credit system to the citizens of Sarasota and have visitors pay for parking? As for now, this is just another reason why I stop going downtown as much as I use to.
