Construction begins on new Daiquiri Deck CB’s and Daiquiri Deck owners partner on South End project A new building combining modern architecture and a beachy vibe is rising up on Stickney Point Road and should be constructed by early spring. A new Daiquiri Deck restaurant will anchor the three-story building, filling the top floor — a perch that affords outdoor-deck views of the Intracoastal and Gulf, from some vantages. On the first floor, the building will also house a new coffee shop and retain existing retail space for CB’s Island Outfitters store. The second floor will be used for storage. The concept for the building was born about two years ago when the co-owners of

CB’s Saltwater Outfitters and Island Outfitters store and the co-owners of the Daiquiri Deck local chain of restaurants started talking about a project they hoped would become a destination spot on the south end of the island. The two groups of owners spent the next two years working together to negotiate the terms of a lease, work with an architect on the design of the building, and secure construction approval from the county. Construction work began July 11 at the site of the three-story building at 1250 Stickney Point Road, and after all the meetings and collaboration, Mason Tush,

co-owner of CB’s, believes the result will be worth the effort. “By adding this restaurant and coffee shop, we are hoping it will create more of a buzz for the area,” said Mason Tush, coowner of C.B.’s. “It ought to be pretty cool.” CB’s will own the new building, while Daiquiri Deck will lease the space and operate both the restaurant and the coffee shop. CB’s is a family-run business owned by Mason and his parents Aledia and Lee Tush; Daiquiri Deck, which currently operates three restaurants, is owned by Troy Syprett, Russell Matthes, and Matt Grover. CB’s purchased the property at 1250

Homeless on Siesta Key

beach park that’s often used by children and families. Often, “there was a picnic table full of empty beers by noon,” Gazaway told The Eagle. “Volunteers cleaning the area,” Gazaway said, “had also found some indications that the homeless individuals were using drugs. Other residents who walk the beach in the morning began to notice the group camping in the park.” At the end of June, Gazaway contacted the Siesta Key Association (SKA) — mainly to notify the group about the situation. In turn, SKA representatives contacted county officials including the Division Manager of Beaches & Water

Access, who in turn notified Wayne Applebee, the county’s homeless services director and a deputy who works in the area. Gazaway told The Eagle that the homeless individuals appeared to be gone, as of press time in late July, trash was cleaned up, and there was no more illegal camping on the picnic tables. Gazaway emphasized that he hopes some individuals are willing to utilize resources that can help them — such as programs at the Salvation Army in downtown — but the open intoxication and activities such as urinating in the park’s pavilion should not be tolerated by the community. He is hopeful that if nearby

PUBLISHER’S NOTE:

By Roger Drouin

|Not all accept resources to become self-sufficient Ray Gazaway recently watched a group of homeless individuals at Turtle Beach Park camping on picnic tables, using public bathroom areas to shower, urinating in the pavilion, and drinking at Turtle Beach Park over several weeks. The situation had Gazaway, who lives in a condo near the park, concerned for several reasons. As the mercury rose, he was worried about the condition of the individuals in the extreme summer heat. “I got worried because the heat was so bad,” said Gazaway, who also had concerns about the men and women drinking, leaving behind what he described as a pile of discarded beer cans at the

Mark H. Smith of Smith Architects. The completion target for construction is early spring, Troy Syprett, managing partner with Daiquiri Deck told The Eagle.

residents and county officials remain vigilant “we can nip it in the butt, and in the long run maybe help some people.” In a series of responses, Sarasota County officials let SKA representatives know they are monitoring the situation. For the past few years, the city of Sarasota and the county have been struggling with finding long-term solutions to the problem of chronic homelessness in the county. Catherine Luckner, vice president of the SKA, said she noticed that the county responded quickly to the resident’s concerns. Continued on page 23

President’s Column Welcome to mid-summer. It doesn’t get much hotter in these parts-and from the looks of the national weather map this past week-it has been about as hot in two thirds of the country. Subdued is the ambiance around here so it seems Landings residents have departed in search of cooler climates-good luck- or are staying in air conditioning right here. In keeping with past tradition the LMA Board didn’t meet in July so there is no Eagle’s section recapping the committee reports. However, the Roads and Safety and Security Committee was active. ROADS PAVING UPDATE Last month it was reported that of the five contractors sent bid requests only two responded with bids and they were far higher than anticipated. The committee in consultation with the Executive Committee solicited additional bids. A special board meeting was held on July 15 to consider a new bid, which was within the estimated range. Just prior to the board meeting a second new bid was submitted, with favorable pricing and some other interesting suggestions, but lacking pricing on several aspects of the work. The board concluded that it is more important to get the best possible project than to make a hurried decision. The committee and our paving consultant are meeting with both of these bidders and plan to have a recommendation for the August 4 board meeting.

By Larry Lawrence

SAFETY AND SECURITY The committee has two recommendations for the board’s consideration. First the radar speed detection program has determined that there are a number of drivers exceeding the speed limit by 8 to 10 mph. Currently the policy is to issue a warning letter for exceeding the limit by 10 mph. Based on this new information, the committee is recommending that a second occurrence within a thirty-day period of a violation of between 8 and 10 mph will constitute a first violation of the association’s speeding regulation. This would result in a warning letter being issued. Second, the committee will be recommending guidelines for the use of night-time radar speed detection. Obviously the committee is taking compliance with the speed limits very seriously. STORM PREPARDNESS Last month The Eagle’s lead article was on hurricane preparedness with emphasis on the shortage of shelter space. In my column I mentioned that the LMA Safety and Security Committee has updated all of its procedures and contacts as well as linkages with outside contractors for enhanced security and clean-up. Remember that police, fire and ambulance services are not available during a county declared emergency. Please take time to review your plans in the event of a significant storm-August and September are the periods of highest probability of severe events. For those with disabilities early action is essential!

THE LANDINGS SHOPPING CENTER AND SIESTA PROMENADE There is nothing new to report on the Landings Shopping Center, but the association is continuing its vigilance. Regarding Siesta Promenade (the proposed Benderson project at the corner of Rt. 41 and Stickney Point Rd.), a group of 5-6 community associations are coalescing in opposition. At its August board meeting LMA will be considering its involvement, if any. I surveyed the resident association presidents and there wasn’t any significant opposition to LMA expressing concern about this planned development. In the meantime interested Landings residents have been attending community meetings regarding the project and several have made public comments expressing their concerns about the “density” of the project and its impact on an intersection that has significant congestion and at times is gridlocked during the tourist season. COMMUNITY ENHANCEMENTS The Treehouses are on a roll. In a year’s time they’ve put on new roofs, installed pavers in the driveways and parking pads and if all goes well soon will have newly paved roads. The Villas at Eagles Point have beautiful new tile roofs. It is continuous enhancements such as these that keep our community beautiful and maintain the value of our investments! Cheers Larry

THE LANDINGS EAGLE August 2016

Although Sarasota County staff still has not completed its accounting to arrive at the total expense of the South Siesta Key Renourishment Project — which was completed in late April — staff has the potential of netting extra state grant money to help cover the cost, the county’s coastal initiatives manager has reported to the county’s Tourist Development Council (TDC). Moreover, staff has been very pleased with the color of the sand and with the fact that Tropical Storm Colin did not seem to do much damage to the beach, Laird Wreford told the TDC during its June 16 meeting. “A fair amount of sand” was lost from the southern limit of the renourishment area, Wreford said, but the bulk of the project fared well. “We really didn’t suffer that significantly.” Funding for the estimated $21.5-million project will come from Tourist Development Tax (TDT) revenue, assessments of the property owners along the slightly more than 2 miles of beach front and a state grant, he explained. The county already has received $2.75 million in state money, he said, but it is seeking $6 million to $7 million more. “We have up to three years after construction to still secure that funding.” Ultimately, he explained, that could affect the total assessments the property owners will pay. A public hearing before the County Commission to set those assessments was postponed in June as staff continued to compile the final amount of the expense. County spokesman Jason Bartolone said the public hearing has been rescheduled for Aug. 23,” noting that the board will be on its annual summer break the last two weeks of July through the first two weeks of August. On July 14, Rachel A. Herman, the county’s environmental planning manager, indicated that the staff was continuing to

work on the final figures for the cost and the assessments. Wreford pointed out to the TDC that the renourishment this year was the second project to place sand on south Siesta Beach. The first was completed in 2007. The project area runs from a rock revetment that is about 3,000 feet south of Point of Rocks, he noted, to the southernmost house on the island, where waves were “washing against [the] bulkhead].” Altogether, 713,000 cubic yards of sand was dredged from three submerged areas in the Gulf of Mexico and placed on the beach, he added. “Weeks Marine of Covington, La., had two hopper dredges heading 7 to 10 miles offshore to collect the sand,” Wreford said. During remarks to celebrate the conclusion of the project, County Administrator Tom Harmer noted that the amount of sand placed on the beach weighed about 1 million tons, or the equivalent of more than 200,000 elephants. “We’re actually hearing some very positive feedback from some of the residents along the project area,” Wreford told the TDC members. On March 9, he pointed out, the sand placement on the beach began; it was completed on April 26. “You’ve got to normally count on three to four months for the sand fill. … This was seven weeks.” Wreford said Weeks Marine used two hopper dredges for its work. The vessels would pass each other in the Gulf, he noted: “one coming in as the other went out.” A dredge sucks in a slurry of sand, he explained, and pumps it into receptacles. A pipe then carries that sand to the shore, where the “big blast of sand slurry” is shaped by bulldozers to “systematically build [the] beach.” “And sure enough you see

this miraculous transformation from this very, very narrow and steep and threatened shoreline to a fat and happy shoreline. … The end result was tremendously successful.” It was also a successful event for wildlife, he noted. As required by the permitting process, he said, a trawler traveled out into the Gulf in advance of the dredges each day, looking to capture any turtles that might be in the vessels’ path. Those turtles were relocated “out of harm’s way.” No turtle was injured during the course of the project, he pointed out. Altogether, Wreford added, 46 were relocated.

The future of renourishment projects

After Wreford’s presentation, Venice City Councilman Bob Daniels told his TDC colleagues he did not believe county leaders could count on such renourishment projects to keep their beaches in good shape in the future. County Commissioner Charles Hines, who serves as the TDC chair, replied that he also has concerns about renourishment projects in the years ahead. Wreford told the council that more and more coastal areas are engaging in renourishment projects for the first time. “You have this ever-increasing demand for sand,” he added; yet, offshore deposits in the Gulf of Mexico are becoming scarce. Communities are removing submerged sand much faster than it can be replenished offshore by natural systems, Wreford explained. And while some people are researching ways to keep sand in place, “it’s extremely dicey,” he added. Structures installed to retain sand end up creating greater erosion issues in other places, he continued. Continued on the next page


Continued from the previous page

One experimental source of renourishment material, Wreford said, is a “glasslike product” without the jagged edges. It has much of the same quality and feel of real sand, he pointed out, but more research needs to be undertaken to determine whether it might harm wildlife. For example, Wreford said, the temperature of the material might prove too hot for turtles and birds. Daniels asked whether any discussion has been scheduled for the TDC in coming months regarding new technology that might be able to keep sand in place in lieu of renouirishments. Hines told the TDC members he would talk with Wreford about either bringing in an expert on such science or letting Wreford provide a more detailed presentation about information he has learned from attending seminars.

Racquet Club News |Manager’s Report

By Kevin Lechlitner

The Family Swim Night was a big success. Thankfully this year Mother Nature cooperated with us. It was held Friday, July 8th from 4:00 - 7:00 PM. Roughly 30 community residents attended the event. Thank you to Doug and Veronica Day from the LMA Social Events Committee for organizing it and decorating. Thanks to staff member Gary Bowen for serving as lifeguard as well. This year, the food was provided by PDQ. The chicken fingers and salads were great! As usual, the hit of the party had to be the ice cream truck. It looked like everyone enjoyed a frozen treat, including the adults in attendance. Fall is right around the corner. For the 24th year in a row, The Landings will host the USTA National Senior and Super-Senior Father / Son Clay Court Championships the week before Thanksgiving. This year, for the first time, we will be adding a third division. After a few years of requests from the players, we added an Ultra-Senior

division where the father has to be at least 80 years old. If you are interested in taking part as a host family, please contact Ralph & Dee Ricapito at 927-6261. They do a fantastic job organizing the host families every year and have volunteered to do it once again. If you have any questions about being a host, feel free to call me at the Club or call Ralph and Dee directly at 927-6261. Beginning in August, we will start the annual court resurfacing project. Two courts at a time will be offline until all eight are pristine again. Even though the courts are much quieter in the summer months, I still suggest you call ahead for reservations. With Joe teaching on one court and two others down for resurfacing, the options are somewhat limited. Weather permitting, this project should be completed by the end of September. That gives us a two-week cushion before the start of the Women’s

County staff’s failure to comply with direction for inlet management strategy leads to board concerns about revising policy By Rachel Brown Hackney www.SarasotaNewsLeader.com Sarasota County never completed a beach and inlet management strategy — including an assessment of the nature and extent of coastal erosion and monitoring of the effectiveness of beach restoration initiatives — in spite of the call for such an undertaking to be completed by 2015, a member of the public has pointed out to the County Commission. Furthermore, the updated version of the Comprehensive Plan — which has been crafted over the past 18 months — no longer calls for such a strategy, Peter van Roekens, chair of Save Our Siesta Sand 2 (SOSS2), told the board on July 6 as it was conducting its latest public hearing on the revision of the document. As a result of the inaction, he continued, no county environmental analysis has been undertaken of the $19-million City of Sarasota/U.S. Army

Corps of Engineers (USACE) proposal to dredge Big Sarasota Pass to renourish South Lido Key, van Roekens said. Additionally, instead of 12 measurable objectives in the existing Environment section of the Comprehensive Plan, van Roekens explained, the new version has “six amorphous nonmeasurable statements, which consequently have no scheduled delivery date. Measurable results have been replaced by consideration and process.” City of Sarasota staff members recently announced that they expect the Florida Department of Environmental Management (FDEP) to issue the necessary permit this fall for the dredging of Big Pass to proceed. Because the county never has fulfilled the requirements of the existing Comprehensive Plan policy, van Roekens pointed out, the USACE has based its entire plan on models.

A Legacy of Service.

He asked that the board keep the existing Comprehensive Plan language and implement the strategy. Both Chair Al Maio and Commissioner Christine Robinson voiced concerns about his remarks and asked staff to take a look at modifying the new language before the board adopts the revised Comprehensive Plan in late October. Although the board voted unanimously on July 6 to transmit the updated document — with changes the commission approved that day — to state officials for the required review, Maio asked Environmental Planning Manager Rachel Herman to consider van Roekens’ statements in proposing further modifications before the October public hearing.

Parsing the intentions Existing Environmental Policy 1.2.3 says the following:

“By 2015, develop a Beach and Inlet Management strategy with monitoring program for Sarasota County, incorporating regional coordination and interaction, to: • “assess the nature and extent of coastal erosion; • “monitor the effectiveness of beach restoration programs; • “determine the effect of storm events on sand movement; • “identify dominant coastal processes which would aid in evaluating permit applications and coastal decision making; • “incorporate the long-term effects of sea level rise within the management policies; • “identify the impacts of modified inlets on historic erosion rates; • “identify beach segments with common erosion/accretion histories; • “recommend beach management strategies for each segment, including maintenance; • “identify potential impacts

to existing environmental conditions; • “identify and assess impacts to marine habitats and wildlife; • “ensure beach management strategies are environmentally sound; and • “develop a long term strategy for areas of chronic erosion.” The new policy, 4.7.1, in the updated Environmental Element, says this: “The county shall manage its beaches and inlets in consideration of the following: • “Potential for regional coordination and cooperation • “Nature and extent of coastal erosion and opportunities to address areas of long-term erosion • “Adaptive management approach to beach and shoreline restoration and enhancement programs Continued on the next page

EVERY VOTE COUNTS!?

Continued from the previous page

• “Mitigation of impacts of sea level rise through planning and management • “Management strategies for shoreline segments based on their erosion/accretion histories and trends • “Potential affects [sic] to marine and coastal wildlife and habitats” When Robinson asked Herman why the language had been changed, Herman replied that the modification makes the policy “more goal-oriented,” and gives the board more flexibility “to fulfill the intent of this policy rather than creating a standalone plan.” Herman added, “It’s really a philosophical difference in how you want to pursue that beach management.” When Robinson asked for an example of such flexibility, Herman pointed to the recent board request for a staff assessment of erosion on South County beaches in the wake of Tropical Storm Colin’s damage in early June.

Herman added that the commission could require a standalone plan to work in concert with specific actions to support the overall policy. “We all have to live with this — all five commissioners,” Maio told Herman, as well as the people in his district. (Maio represents Siesta Key on the board.) The existing Comprehensive Plan language “is much more definitive and forceful” than the new proposed policy, Maio pointed out. “I sure would like our staff armed with as much as possible.” Maio told Herman and county Planning Division Manager Allen Parsons, “Measure it the way these folks are looking at it,” referring to van Roekens and the SOSS2 board members. Maio then asked that staff bring that analysis to the board “between now and transmittal and adoption” of the updated Comprehensive Plan. “We would be happy to do that,” Herman replied.

One definition of having “Words With Friends” may be a game we play on our iPad or phone. But, on this day having words with dear friends was around a long standing, “Hand and Foot” card game. I found myself between a long time friend who has just become an unregistered Conservative Republican, and on my left side another girlfriend who remains a life long Liberal Democrat. The game allows us to chat while cards are being shuffled. This day it led to: who is Presidential material and who is not Presidential enough; gun laws, the future importance of Supreme Court picks, even health care issues. The morning flew by, in this blue and red mood. The morning ends, the game was fun; and I realize we are all good friends, and care for one another and would always be there for each other when in need. So we laugh a lot and come November, the two of them can go to the polling place, sashay up to the kiosk........and cancel each other’s vote! Let the cards fall where they may.

Landings Radar Program The new Landings speeder detection program went live in March of this year. As of midJune, there were 21 vehicles identified as moving at least 7 MPH over the speed limit. Violation letters for speeds in excess of 10 MPH over

the speed limit have been sent, and other speeders are being monitored for repeat offenders. Statistics indicate that the combination of a lower speed limit and a revised speed limit detection capability

have substantially reduced the average speed of drivers in The Landings and lowered our potential for a serious incident involving pedestrians and vehicles.

ICE IT! I love ice! Is that bad?

Many of us like sucking and chewing on ice. It’s cool, no calories and refreshing. However, it’s a major cause of broken teeth and dental restorations! Ice is very cold and chills teeth to make them more brittle. Add to that that ice is very, very hard. Now you’re biting into a very hard substance with cold, brittle teeth and it’s a terrible recipe for cracks and fractures. So, unless you like it so much you don’t mind the problems it causes; consider breaking this habit before it breaks you!

It’s up to you!

The Eagle Has Landed

Village Association discussion arises over seafood festival planned on Siesta Public Beach in December By Rachel Brown Hackney Members of the Siesta Key Village Association (SKVA) made it clear during their July meeting that they are not pleased with the concept of the Siesta Beach Seafood & Music Festival, scheduled for Dec. 3-4 on Siesta Public Beach. The event “was brought to our attention by accident, actually,” SKVA President Wendall Jacobsen announced during the organization’s monthly session. A form someone had provided to the SKVA showed the festival is being planned by Paragon Fine Art Festivals, which is headed by Siesta resident Bill Kinney. None of the SKVA members had heard about the event until someone had passed along the form, Jacobsen noted. Ann Frescura, executive director of the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce, said the Chamber had not received any formal information about the festival, either. When Michael Shay, the Siesta Key Village Maintenance Corp. liaison, asked whether Paragon had obtained a county permit for the December event, Jacobsen replied that he did not know. SNL learned from county spokesman Drew Winchester on July 6 that Paragon has made a reservation for use of the beach and has paid a $500 deposit. The total for fees and tax will be $2,479.87 Among the details found on the Paragon Fine Art Festival

website are that the event will be held from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4. The description notes, “The event is a unique blending of food, music and visual entertainment affording attendees a potpourri of delectable seafood creations and delicious drinks prepared by the top restaurants in Siesta Key and Sarasota. Combined with the mouth-watering foods will be outstanding musical performances by local and regional [musicians] in a diversity of genres from Scottish [bagpipes] and classical [quartets] to bands of various flavors: rock-and-roll, jazz, calypso and reggae. Another integral component is an extraordinary outdoor gallery of fine arts and crafts by artisans from around the nation. If you are a fine artisan or craft vendor consider becoming part of this event and broadening your market base in Florida.” The website also indicates general admission will be free, but VIP tent access will cost $50. SKVA Director Russell Matthes, co-owner of the Daiquiri Deck restaurants, pointed out during the meeting that Paragon also has scheduled events on St. Armands Circle and in downtown Sarasota and St. Petersburg during 2017. “It takes a little away from businesses,” he pointed out of plans for the seafood festival on the Key.

During a July 6 telephone interview, Kinney indicated he has been planning the Siesta Beach event for more than a year. “We’ve done plenty of outreach with the businesses,” he added. He originally proposed the festival as an alternative to Siesta Fiesta, he explained, having discussed that prospect with SKVA Vice President Mark Smith of Smith Architects in May 2015, as detailed in an email from Kinney. Paragon conducted its first Sarasota Seafood and Music Festival in downtown Sarasota in January in collaboration with the Sarasota Downtown Merchants Association. Ron Soto, chair of that organization, wrote in his March message to members, “With literally thousands of attendees, the two-day event was a home run for the SDMA, thanks to Bill Kinney and Paragon Events, the festival’s producers.”

Oh la la! Saul and Pat in Rouen, France enjoying a River Cruse from Paris to HonFleur

Kinney said he had signed up about five seafood restaurants so far for the Siesta dates, including Walt’s Fish Market and Restaurant. He pointed out, though, that it was early in the planning process. Given that this would be a for-profit event, Matthes said during the SKVA meeting, he felt it would set a bad precedent for Siesta Public Beach. He added that he did not believe the Daiquiri Deck, Captain Curt’s

Crab & Oyster Bar and other seafood restaurants on the Key would participate in it, “when we have our own brick-andmortar right here …” “This is a money-making option for these folks,” SKVA Vice President Smith concurred with Matthes. After SKVA members were able to learn more about the proposal for the event, Matthes said, they would report on their findings.

New Daiquiri Deck “We are looking to open in early Spring,” Syprett said. The modern architecture, designed by architect Mark Smith, will be “warmed” by colorful accents and tropical landscaping such as royal palms, Syprett, said. “It will have a ton of trees and plants,” Syprett said.

A restaurant and coffee shop

The restaurant will meet the demand of the island’s growing south end market, which includes tourists staying at resorts and short-term condo rentals. “Siesta has become two markets,” Syprett said, noting that vacationers staying on the south end of the island often don’t want to drive or drive far when they do — especially when they have to battle traffic and try to find parking in peak tourist season. The 4,100-square-foot restaurant will include 152 seats and will be a smaller version of the restaurant’s Village location 2.7 miles to the north. Although the new Stickney Point restaurant will be smaller, it will feature a similar layout and the same food and drink menu as the other Daiquiri Deck restaurants locations. The local chain operates three locations: the original in the Village; Daiquiri Deck St

Continued from cover story

Armands; and Daiquiri Deck on the Island of Venice. The 900-square-foot coffee shop will have 20 to 25 seats, and feature breakfast sandwiches, along with different types of coffee drinks, including lattes and espressos, Syprett said. There isn’t a coffee shop on the south end currently, and both Syprett and Tush said they believe the café will meet a need. “If they are renting a boat at CB’s or Siesta Key Marina, or if they keep a boat there [at the marina], or even people staying in a nearby condo can get a cup of coffee or a breakfast sandwich,” Syprett said. “It should be a nice place,” Syprett said. There will be a sitting area with Wi Fi so people on vacation can come to check their emails, Syprett said. “The whole concept is very family orientated,” Syprett said of the project. “It should be a good addition to the south end of the Key,” added Tush, “and make for a nice family fun location to give people things to do on vacation.” Tush believes the investment in the area will also be a boom for other nearby businesses. “I think it will improve everybody’s business on the South End,” he said.

“Island theme”

The Daiquiri Deck and coffee shop will complement the business at CB’s Saltwater Outfitters, Tush said, offering dinning options for customers before or after renting a vessel. CB’s Saltwater Outfitters is located just two doors down at 1249 Stickney Point Road. “We really wanted to create a good synergy between the two businesses,” Tush told The Eagle. In addition, Daiquiri Deck matches the “beachy, fun tropical island” theme of CB’s, Tush said. Daiquiri Deck matches the “kind of feel” Tush said his family wanted for the area. “Their restaurant model obviously works; they have been around for a long time and have several other locations,” Tush added of Daiquiri Deck. Syprett said he believes the project would also dovetail with the proposed Siesta Promenade mixed-use center at the northwest corner of U.S. 41 and Stickney Point Road. Benderson Development is taking steps to gain county approval for the latest version of its plans for Siesta Promenade — a mixed-use center that would transform the busy intersection.

Captain Jim Klopfer’s Fishing Report

Fishing at the gazebo in The Landings

Adventure Charters 941-371-1390 There is a little secret here on Siesta Key; the fishing is terrific in August! Many anglers assume that the heat slows down the action, but this is far from true. The reality is that due to daily rain showers, the water temperature is actually lower in August than it is in June. Hordes of bait fish cover the flats. This combination results in excellent conditions for anglers to succeed. The best action will be early morning, late afternoon, and at night. Snook love the infusion of fresh water into the bay. Snook migrate back into the bays after spawning out on the beach in August. Shallow diving plugs such as the Rapala X-Rap are very effective baits. They cover a lot of water and produce explosive strikes. Scented soft plastics also work well. Live shrimp, pinfish, and pilchards will also catch a lot of snook, particularly once the fish are located. Outgoing tides at first light and in the evening are the best times to fish. Redfish will begin to school up in large numbers in August. The bars south of Siesta Drive are worth a try. Weedless gold spoons and scented soft plastic baits on a 1/8 ounce jig head are proven baits. Hand-picked shrimp cast into pot holes is a deadly technique, too. Low, incoming tides are best. The deep grass flats on the north end of Siesta Key will be good spots to target speckled trout. High tides in the morning will produce plenty of fish. Spanish mackerel, pompano,

Photos submitted by Norman Olshansky

bluefish, ladyfish, jack crevelle, sharks, small gag grouper, and mangrove snapper will also be caught by anglers drifting the deep grass. A live shrimp under a popping cork works very well. A jig with a grub tail is the preferred artificial bait but plugs and spoons are also effective. The bars from CB’s Saltwater Outfitters at Stickney Pt. south to Blackburn Pt. will hold some very nice trout along with a few redfish. This area does not get a lot of pressure in the summertime. This is an early morning bite and a high tide is preferred. In the last several years mangrove snapper fishing has been outstanding! Grass flats that drop off into deep water with some current flow should produce plenty of nice snapper this month. Live bait works best and baitfish will usually catch larger fish than shrimp. A 1/0 live bait hook tied on a 24” piece of 20 pound flourocarbon leader with just enough split shot to get to the bottom is the simple but effective rig. Surf casters should have opportunities for snook, the beach fishing for snook this year has been outstanding. Small artificial lures such as white jigs and small plugs work well, while live shrimp and baitfish will score more consistently. Other species such as Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, drum, trout, pompano, and flounder will be taken as well. The best conditions are an east wind and incoming tide.

Siesta residents argue against Comprehensive Plan change regarding abandonment of roads on waterfronts By Rachel Brown Hackney www.SarasotaNewsLeader.com On July 6, as the Sarasota County Commission held its third public hearing on proposed revisions to its Comprehensive Plan, five members of the public argued against a 4-1 vote the board took on May 11 to abandon a 360-foot segment of North Beach Road that has been closed to traffic since 1993 because of its deterioration. Four pleaded with the commissioners not to weaken the portion of the Comprehensive Plan dealing with vacation of road segments or access points on waterfronts, while two others — including one who has filed suit against the county over the North Beach Road action — urged the commissioners to revisit that specific decision. Yet, only Commissioner Christine Robinson — who cast the “No” vote on May 11 — asked that the public record show her objection to the revision as part of the county’s 18-month effort to update the Comprehensive Plan. Late on July 6, the board voted unanimously to transmit to the state the plan, incorporating modifications it did approve that day. Following that state review, the document will be back before the board in late October for final adoption, Planning Division Manager Allen Parsons pointed out. Sarasota attorney Dan Lobeck of Control Growth Now told the board, “I’m

shocked, quite frankly … at what you’re proposing to do to your Comprehensive Plan on the very policy that made illegal what this commission did in vacating [a part of North Beach Road] that provides beach access … and turning it over to private interests.” Michael Consentino, the Siesta resident who filed suit against the county in early June, had alerted him to the proposed change in language, Lobeck explained. The current policy in the Parks section of the Comprehensive Plan says, “The County shall not vacate road segments on waterfronts along any creek, river, lake, bay or Gulf access point and shall encourage right-of-way use of these areas for coastal beach and bay access.” The proposed change — which would be Parks Policy 1.1.12 — says, “The County should not vacate road segments or access points on waterfronts along any beach, bay, creek, river, or lake, and should encourage public rightof-way use of these areas for public shoreline and water access.” Lobeck pointed to the fact that staff had proposed replacing “shall” with “should.” That “encourages you to do something as opposed to requiring it,” Lobeck said. “It’s sort of beyond my imagination that [the Comprehensive Plan revision] can happen,” Siesta

resident Katie Hayes told the commissioners. “Shall” and “should,” she added, “are very different. … I don’t know how it can happen easily,” she continued, referring to the proposed update, “but I think you all should vote against it.” As for North Beach Road, she continued, “I’m in favor of keeping [it] open.” Consentino himself said of the May 11 vote on the road abandonment, “I just think that you simply made a mistake on this. … I don’t think that there’s anything nefarious. … I’m going to try to help you see the light.” When Consentino took the opportunity to offer further public comments on the afternoon of July 6, he told the board, “I’m pointing out that ‘shall’ is extremely important.” It should stay in the policy, he added, and not just because of his lawsuit. Katie Gerhardt, who identified herself as a real estate appraiser and a Realtor, told the board that when she was a child growing up on Siesta Key, people could drive along Shell Road and look out over the Gulf of Mexico. Later, part of that road deteriorated and private property owners put up barricades to prevent public access, she continued. “Eventually, it was given to those property owners, and now we have lost that beautiful scenic drive.” Referring to the North Beach Road segment, she added,

“I believe that this stretch … is probably the only spot on Siesta Key we can drive by and see the beach and the Gulf upclose and personal.”

Lone dissent on the board

After Robinson lodged her objection to the proposed changes in the policy, Commissioner Charles Hines responded, “She’s baiting me …” Robinson laughingly replied that she was not. Referring to the existing policy, he continued, “The ‘shall not’ has created some serious issues in regards to factual situations where it makes no sense [for the county to keep maintaining a road segment].” The policy prevents a person from providing a reason why the board should not vacate a portion of a road, he explained. One reason Hines voted in favor of abandoning the North Beach Road segment, he said on May 11, was because the attorney for the three couples who had petitioned the board for the action pointed out that the couples also owned parcels on the Gulf side of North Beach Road. Therefore, the attorney — Charles Bailey III of the Williams Parker firm — said North Beach Road technically was not on the waterfront. While he had to be careful not to address Consentino’s case against the county, Hines pointed out on July 6, “I am in

favor of changing this [policy].” Nonetheless, Hines said, he would not have a problem “with language … that makes [the change] stronger,” making it clear “that there should be a significant reason [to abandon a road section]. … But to totally say, ‘You shall not’ just, in my opinion, does not make sense. It’s too, too restrictive.” For example, he pointed out, the board should be able to approve a road abandonment petition when “there is no public benefit [and] there is no foreseeable public benefit,” but, instead, the potential for liability if the county continues to maintain a specific section of road. “I don’t know how to qualify this anymore to make it stronger,” he added of the proposed language. “I think this change is appropriate … but it’s not something that should be done lightly at all.”

Questions asked for approving the Benderson Siesta Promenade development Q. When (and where) is the meeting on the changes to the (CAP) Critical Area Plan, (height and density) that the County Commissioners will need to approve for this project? Q. How does the public influence (or send in request) for the traffic (road) study to include all roads, even roads such as Midnight Pass going North and South? At the time of press the application has yet to be submitted. It is anticipated to be by the end of July. Below is a response to these questions from the County point person, Todd Dary assigned to the project. Once the application for CAP and Rezone are submitted the county will schedule a CAP boundary public

hearing and begin review of the rezone petition. The CAP boundary hearing will occur approximately 8-10 weeks after submittal and will address the boundary, multifamily use and density. The Public hearing for the rezone will occur approximately 6-8 months after submittal and will include the CAP and rezone. After applications are submitted the county will collect correspondence from the public. If you were notified of the neighborhood workshop, or attended and gave your address, you will be notified of the public hearings by mail. If you did not, please provide the county your complete mailing address to be forwarded to the applicant to place on their mailing list.

Homeless on Siesta Key The Sheriff’s Office, Luckner said, has responded with “the greatest of compassion and respect” as they contacted homeless people. She said they talked with individuals, instead of just arresting them.

Services available

Applebee said he believed this was the first and only complaint he knows of regarding homeless people at Turtle Beach. He said after a notification, the Sheriff’s Housing Initiative Facilitating Transient Services (SHIFTS) and outreach workers would visit with homeless people to see if they are interested in any services that could help them. “Social service workers would go out and engage with the folks and see if they are interested in any services,” Applebee told The Eagle. “If a person is eligible and willing to work with the program, we would bring them in and the SHIFTS program offers temporary

housing, and we work on things like employment or getting disability benefits they may qualify for,” Applebee said. “The goal is to get them stabilized and self sufficient, and then assist them in finding a housing situation that meets their needs. That is a voluntary program, and they have to be willing to go and see professionals and work on self sufficiency.” Applebee noted that, “whether people have a home or don’t have a home they are allowed to be in public spaces, as long as not breaking any rules or laws.” Sarasota County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jason Mruczek, in charge of the Sheriff’s Office operations on the Key replied in a June 26 email to Luckner, vice president of the SKA: “We will continue to monitor that area and take appropriate action whenever we find any laws or ordinances being violated. We will also be working with outside groups to see what other options may be available to homeless persons

seeking services. I will let you know of any results we’ve had in the coming weeks.” Shawn Yeager, Division Manager of Beaches & Water Access at the county’s Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources, wrote in an email to Luckner: “Again, thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. Our staff will continue to monitor as well.” The Sheriff’s Office reports that they have conducted outreach as a result of the email from SKA back in June. There were three individuals identified who regularly visit Turtle Beach that are experiencing homelessness, none have a desire to enter program services when it was offered to them. “… Of course, please always encourage park patrons to contact the Sheriff’s Office at the time the situation is occurring (9-1-1 or 941-3161201). This allows a deputy to respond and investigate the complaint in a timely manner.”
