Zoning Alert: Mega Hotels proposed for Siesta Key
There are several proposals to create oversized mega hotels on Siesta Key. In order to construct these mega hotels, developers will need the County Commission to approve a change to our comprehensive plan and zoning code. Our zoning code has been in place since the 1950's. Regulations to prevent any increase in intensity or density on the barrier islands have been in our code since 1989.
Not satisfied in requesting the elimination of density requirements for hotels on the barrier islands, the developers are asking to eliminate density on any hotel that requires redevelopment. For more information on proposed mega hotels on Siesta Key, visit our Siesta Key Zoning alert page under the SK Government and Zoning tab or use this link.

A message from our president,
From the moment I stepped on to
Siesta Key's wonderfully soft sand 20 years ago, I knew I had to work to protect it's beauty.
Since moving here, I've been actively involved in civic organizations and in politics.
It has been my pleasure devoting time to ensure our Siesta Key community continues to be the best place to live and to spend quality time. I've been so passionate in protecting our way of life that I've spent my personal finances in legal fights against Sarasota County on issues regarding density, illegal rentals and other detrimental government actions.
I will continue to keep our community informed on ongoing issues.
