    5349 Howard Creek Rd Sarasota, FL, 34241, USA - Sarasota County
    This green gate and the fence to the right of it was put up last week and blocks a county drainage easement and ditch. This man has does this because he does not want walkers, bike riders, or horse riders going by his house. He runs an illegal carpentry/cabinet making business out of his garage and doesn't want to get reported again. He's already been told to shut it down before. The county has been called for a second gate that illegally blocks the drainage easement trail behind his house, but has been threatened by this bully, so they don't do anything. This is unacceptable. This easement cannot have a closed gate and I am sick of this man being able to get away with bending the rules to suit himself. We must all abide by the law, he is not special and does not get a hall pass to do what he wants.

    So everything reported and marked UNFOUNDED in your system is really unfounded and closed or trying to make it go away from public view ?????? I don't see how SANCA is really wanting and trying to be in compliance when this goes back over 7 months and Mr. Osterhoudt met with SANCA in September and to date they are not able to submit the required information to the County. All citizens would like to be able to just do what they want with no repercussions as long as they SAY they really want to comply. Actions speak louder than words. SANCA is not going to get permits for the large blue shipping containers and the piles of outdoor storage as they have already been told they are not allowed but yet they want to be in compliance but WILL NOT remove those items that they have already been told will not be approved.

    Athletes Dr Sarasota, FL, 34235, USA - Sarasota County
    S&D plan required that shell parking for boat ramp in east and west lake be converted to paved surface when development done. The East lake was converted. The West lake was not. Sarasota County ordinance requires that rock or shell MAY be approved if an alternate parking plan is submitted to the County Engineer and Zoning and $500.00 fee paid. This also does not meet ADA as no path other than shell from Athletes Drive to boat ramp/handicap spot.

    5851 Nathan Benderson Cir Sarasota, FL, 34235, USA - Sarasota County
    After trying multiple times to get clarification from the County on when or if they intend to complete or have developer complete land development issues missing in the park I am told they are reviewing them with approved plans. They have been reviewing for several months. Engineer and Benderson were required to submit plans and certify that they met all land development regulations. Sarasota County is unwilling to ask Benderson to complete the park as agreed. No parking areas have canopy trees as required. Landscape Street buffer never installed along Cattlemen Road. Numerous ADA issues in the park. Missing sidewalks. Missing parking lot and pathways lighting. Missing parking lot striping and bumpers. Numerous areas missing ADA parking space. Those that do have no connectivity to bathroom or pathways. ETC ETC. County staff refuses to have Benderson complete the park as required by Land Development ordinance. Taxpayers are going to be on the hook for these issues. Why is staff looking the other way for Benderson?
