Where “Quality of Life” is No Accident

The economic, civic and cultural sophistication of Sarasota County is not happenstance. Continuous, grassroots processes develop and engage strategies for continued economic growth and global competitiveness. These public/private partnerships all commit to attain sustainability in Sarasota County’s economy and environment. This community meets opportunity and challenge head-on, in open discussion and debate; where business leaders share a strong voice in the civic dialogue at the local, regional and state levels.

Long-term strategies seek to capitalize on unique assets in Sarasota County, including our aging population, design thinking and sustainability systems.
