Neighborhood 'share shops' scheduled
Sarasota County announces next round of neighborhood 'share shops'
SARASOTA COUNTY - Earlier this year, Sarasota County Neighborhood Services piloted "share-shops," a unique form of workshop in which residents are included on a panel of subject matter experts.
Each share-shop highlights a neighborhood project that has been completed through the county's Neighborhood Initiative Grant Program. In addition to grant recipients, the panel also includes a county staff subject matter expert and a member of the Neighborhood Initiative Grant Advisory Committee.
"These share-shops provide great insight on how to successfully apply for and implement one of our neighborhood grants. But, at their core, they are stories of neighborhood residents joining one another to work toward and achieve a goal. We think those stories are worth sharing," said Sarasota County Neighborhood Services Manager Jane Grogg.
A share-shop, focused on a pond restoration project in Talon Bay, is planned for 4-5 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 16, at the North Port Library.
Any neighborhood leader or resident is encouraged to attend. If you would like to be notified of future share-shop dates, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
