SARASOTA- The Sarasota County Commission have cleared the way to buy land for a new youth sports complex.

The 115-acre property is at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way and Tuttle Avenue, near Booker Middle School.  Commissioners will vote to buy the land, as long as its current owner removes some fences from the property.

The land will cost the county $2.2 million.
