    238 Parkview Dr Venice, FL, 34293, USA - Sarasota County
    We have the same issue at the corner of Parkview and Sunnyside. When it is raining, the water comes over the curb. With the summer rains, these corners will be constantly flooded. We appreciate the new pavement, but water never pooled to this degree prior to the resurfacing of the streets. In addition to the driving problems, this will be a problem for mosquitoes as well.

    3616 Roslyn Rd South Venice, FL, 34293, USA - South Venice
    The drainage ditch that runs from baffin to the creek has erroded a large portion of my lot and has filled the creek in to a depth of only one foot at low tide. This has also created a swamp area. This problem needs to be addressed. Thanks.

    116 Tina Island Dr Osprey, FL, 34229, USA - Laurel
    Very poor drainage on Tina Island Dr particularly at the end of my driveway. We were told some time ago that a drainage pipe was crushed but have not seen any attempt to repair it. Please investigate.

    2189 Pine Gardens Trl Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Gulf Gate Estates
    We have lived here 6 years. This plant has never grown here like this in the past. At first it was slow but now it is taking over the bayou. I know we are not supposed to mess with the water at all as it is county property. Will you please send someone to assess and handle it before the whole body of water is covered.

    Storm water does not drain, and the street floods.
  • 2616 Britannia Rd Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Sarasota County
    The culvert along Lords Ave/Albert place that is along the back fence line of Britannia Rd is so extremely overgrown the water in the culvert and the plant growth to push my fencing and it's bringing snakes and rats and encouraging dumping of trash. This is my 3rd report in as many months and nobody has been out to cut it back in the past 2 years. It's county property and needs to be maintained as it's causing property damage to everyone on Britannia Rd whose backyard fencing is there.

    115 Sunnyside Dr Venice, FL, 34293, USA - Sarasota County
    No drainage at the corner of Sunnyside Drive and Alsace Avenue. Cars passing through the area drive into the high water. The water is scattered everywhere and the drivers lose steering control. The mailbox has been hit several times and the palms on the property are dying. Two Queen Palms have already been cut down because of the water issue. Individuals out for a walk will cross the property to avoid the standing water only to be drenched in water by the cars driving into it. This is a real safety hazard.

    11823-11899 Herreda St North Port, FL, 34287, USA - Warm Mineral Springs
    They are building a new house and they blocked the drainage. The water from the entire street drains on this corner and we have lots of standing water and the street is flooding after it rains. About 2 years ago they reworked all of the drainage on this road and it drained perfectly but now it's a problem again.

    1851 Livingstone St Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Vamo
    There's a storm drain at the end of Livingstone nearest 41, but there's no method for water to get to it. So it stacks up like this. It's also in the yards of the people living there and nearly to their front doors. It just has no where to drain too.

    1726 Mova St Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Vamo
    Drainage ditch is being blocked by a ficus tree that my neighbor planted by his mailbox years ago. It floods my yard every summer. Now my yard is starting to sink down and my fences are under water constantly.

    This has been an ongoing erosion issue. I have a land survey which was done October 2020 to compare to the previous land survey. The comparison clearly shows the massive erosion from the storm water drainage behind Roslyn Road south of Baffin intersection.

    There are several homes that are in jeopardy due to this erosion issue. I am requesting an IMMEDIATE MEETING to discuss how this will be corrected.

    I am a Realtor with Exit King Realty and I have a signed petition by all the home owners who are affected by this erosion issue thus putting their property in further danger and loss of property.

    We are aware that the bridge will be replaced at the W. Baffin and Roslyn Road and we are requesting that the correct drainage be provided for this storm water and then backfilled...exactly like the previous problem that was on Datura.

    I request that you contact me immediately please. This will not be ignored and I have also reached out to local legal counsel.

    Sincerely,
