The Legacy Trail Referendum
On Nov. 6, Sarasota County residents will be asked to vote to fund the extension of The Legacy Trail. The funds would be used to extend the trail into downtown Sarasota as well as provide enhanced connectivity from North Port through Venice to downtown Sarasota.
An estimated 225,000 people use The Legacy Trail annually. The benefits of an extension include creating nearly 30 miles of non-motorized paved transportation corridor through Sarasota County with the potential of becoming a regional connection between Manatee, Sarasota, DeSoto and Charlotte counties.
