Yes, we are OPEN FOR BUSINESS! 

Sarasota County is more than 570 square miles, with more than 20,000 businesses, 75% of which are small to medium in size (25 or fewer employees) but huge in terms of impact. 

With initiatives like the expedited permitting processes and our business assistance email address, bizhelp@scgov.net. We work to enhance your experience throughout the entire permitting process. 
 
Bi-weekly meetings of the Development Review Committee (DRC), occur as part of a formal pre-application meeting for planning petitions. In these meetings, new projects are discussed. The DRC provides the developer upfront knowledge of conditions that are required.
