  • 5900-5956 Cattlemen Lane Sarasota, Florida - Fruitville
    With the construction of the new Live Oaks Apartments, they have closed Cantu Ct workers off from being able to exit at the traffic signal across from Colonial Oaks Blvd. Now, hundreds of workers have only one exit with a stop sign and anyone that needs to travel south on Cattlemen Rd will have to make a dangerous left turn across 3-4 lanes of traffic. The road is expected to be closed until construction is complete in 2 years, so something needs to be done in the meantime to alleviate this unsafe situation. This is a concern everyone here shares, please do not ignore this. It is far too dangerous for people to make a left onto Cattlemen Rd at rush hour everyday, not to mention lunch time and any other time they need to leave.
  • 2076 Misty Sunrise Trail Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County
    Friday night's rain event caused a back up of the stormwater system in our community. I believe the lake that our system outfalls into was not properly draining into the subordinate systems as designed. I believe that the county structure with the facility ID of CT_112016_026403 may be impacted by vegetation or storm debris. Can you please check the outfall and the subordinate ditches/pipes for proper operation?
  • 2534 Mooring Lane Sarasota, Florida - Gulf Gate Estates
    Medallion Homes purchased the Gulf Gate Golf Course. They do not maintain their property on the outside of the barbed wire fence they erected. It's been well over 8 months since the last mowing crew. Please ask them to maintain their property !
  • Coyotes Archived
    601-603 Alhambra Road Venice, Florida, Florida - Venice
    Coyotes are living in the 600 block of Alhambra Road. The excrement picture is outside my front door at 603 Alhambra. They have been sleeping behind my home and on the neighbors front door mat at 609 Alhambra. I have seen two together. We have elderly single female neighbors living alone at 604 and 612 who have seen the coyotes behind their homes. I worry what might happen if someone opens their front door and a coyote is on the mat.
  • 4800-4856 Wilde Pointe Dr Sarasota, FL, 34233, USA - Sarasota County
    Last Friday Aug 2nd I reported this problem after 5:00 PM and a crew came out and placed barricades around the hole. In the week since, the hole has enlarged and gotten deeper. Nobody has been out to repair it.
    Probably a storm drain issue with a bad joint allowing the soil beneath the asphalt and base to be sucked away until the road has collapsed.
    Please repair the source of the problem and then the road ASAP as this is a busy intersection - Wilde Pointe Drive and Cedar Pointe Blvd.
  • Gladstone Boulevard Englewood, Florida - Englewood
    Gladstone blvd is a cut through to Bayshore. People travel down Gladstone to use the light at EnglewoodIsles parkway, because it’s almost impossible (especially from November-May) to make a left onto 776. The next traffic light after EnglewoodIsles parkway is not until Dearborn. We have many neighborhoods surrounding EnglewoodIsles, and nobody can blame them for taking Gladstone to get to the traffic light. Our speed limit is 25mph on Gladstone. We have people speeding Day and night anywhere from 45-65 mph on a 25mph street everyday. We’ve had speeds up to 90 mph too. This is an I-75 speed in a residential neighborhood. The speeding is dangerous with the school buses in the morning, and also in the evening. We have thousands of people who travel down Gladstone weekly. Our neighborhood has a number of reported incidents of accidents, dogs being killed, and pedestrians being almost side swiped. There’s even a FWC report from a bald eagle being killed on Gladstone from speeding. We don’t have street lights, and people walk, and bike, on Gladstone everyday. Gladstone is .8 miles long, and it’s a straight roads without any stop signs. People have used this road drag race at night . Somebody will be killed. We cannot take a deputy off patrol 7 Days a week just to monitor just 1 street in our county. We need the county’s help for safety of our residents and their pets. We have hearing and visually impaired residents, along with many handicap residents. We ask for a few stop signs to break up the flat stretch of road .8 miles long. Also, many years ago double yellow lines were paid for by an old HOA board. This is the county’s roads, as we aren’t private. The double yellow lines made this worse. The HOA will work with the county to resolve this consistent issue, before more lives are in daily danger. Many residents have reached out for help, and have gotten nowhere.
  • 604 Avenida De Mayo Sarasota 34242, United States - Siesta Key
    County allows this property to continue renting by the week, quickly "archiving" valid complaints about this illegal rental all the while leaving frivolous neighboring issues pending. 604 Avenida de Mayo is supposed to be a single family home with 30 day minimum lease.
  • 6947 Antigua Pl Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Gulf Gate Estates
    Once again this home is being reported as an illegal Airbnb. This past weekend it was used for a bachelorette party; multiple trash cans put out after the party - three days before trash pickup. We will continue to report this home until something is done about it.
  • 10 Beach Road Sarasota Florida - Sarasota County
    flag pole erected on former pier. dude conducts a personal ceremony... this is not the place for a personal flag and pole or nightly personal ceremony .... this is becoming an annoyance Mike Cosentino and his "Save Beach Road campaign has been an eyesore since he started commandeering the pier for his personal cause. Sure go ahead and fight your legal fight, but don't be an eyesore and continue marring our beautiful sunset location for the whole season. Mike Cosentino has done a terrible job marketing his cause. bolting signs and poles to the pier is as unacceptable as a port-o-potty and tents. It is not too long ago that Irene came thru here.... and these mountings may not be hurricane safe, and creating dangerous flying debris. If it is authorized and is going to remain, can you assure us of the stress stability of the mountings.
  • 136 1st St E Nokomis, FL, 34275, USA - Laurel
    The owners of this property are making a fool out of everyone at the Sarasota County Zoning Dept as ever since they were allowed to construct this out of place monstrosity of a garage, they have been breaking every restriction place on them when permitted. They are also storing commercial construction equipment on site in a residential neighborhood that they cleverly hide behind the garage so that you can't see it from the street. These people do not live here, they use this garage as a commercial venture and the abutters and the abutters abutters have been complaining about this since first constructed to no avail as nothing is ever done to make them comply with residential rules. This needs to be resolved as the group behind this complaint are seriously talking with attorneys about legal action over the neglect from county officials that are causing us to not be able to enjoy the use of our properties.
  • 2021 Mcintosh Rd Sarasota, FL 34232, USA - Sarasota Springs
    Sensors/timers are not working properly to allow Linwood drivers to turn onto McIntosh. School begins in 2 weeks, and it will be chaotic.
  • 6101 Business Boulevard Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County
    I walk 2x a day with a co-worker and we cross the section in the photo where the crosswalk lines are faded and one of the signs are covered by trees. I was wondering if you can help contact the proper area regarding re-striping of the lines with reflective paint and trimming the tree so the sign could be seen better? Every day there is an issue with cars NOT stopping while we are walking. It is a pedestrian crosswalk and the cars are supposed to stop. It's very dangerous as they speed by without regard for the speed limit or the pedestrian crosswalk. Thank you for your help and guidance.
