Strategic Plan Survey

You’re invited to join a discussion about the future of the Downtown Improvement District and what actions should be taken to achieve the DID’s goal of improving downtown Sarasota. While the DID is a self-taxing district comprised of commercial property owners, all are welcome to take our survey and share ideas to make our downtown a special destination for residents and visitors alike want to experience.  

Would you like to see more? Additional special events like Fresh Fridays? Or ways to make downtown even more visually appealing? A recent lecture series hosted by Architecture Sarasota highlighted the successful transformation of downtown turning it into an engaging, walkable area, and one of the most desirable places in the nation. What’s the best path forward to continue and build upon that success?

Take the Survey.
