 Resource Management Area (RMA) Policy Revisited

 

Scope of Work
The Scope of Work document combines and restates various comments and issues identified through this evaluation process that relate to policies / regulations being reviewed for possible amendment to encourage the implementation of Sarasota 2050 RMA Policy. The Scope of Work is organized within three phases that relate to the complexity of the issues involved:

  • The first phase is to be pursued within a four to six month timeframe, and includes issues generally involving modifications to the Sarasota 2050 Zoning Regulations that do not require any Comprehensive Plan policy changes.
  • The second phase is to be pursued within a seven to ten month timeframe, and involves policy changes (Comprehensive Plan) that do not deviate significantly from the original fundamental values of Sarasota 2050 RMA Policy.
  • The third phase is to be pursued within a 10 to 14 month timeframe, and involves policy changes that may deviate from the original Sarasota 2050 values.
