FDOT has confirmed that there will be a hearing on 12/11.  I have learned that 200-ish people e mailed Mr. Purvis and requested that the hearing take place.    Parking is limited at the Siesta Key Chapel, so you may wish to car-pool.
The public hearing will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Wednesday, December 11, 2019 at the Siesta Key Chapel, 4615 Gleason Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34242. The formal hearing begins at 6:00 p.m. FDOT will hold this hearing to give interested people the opportunity to review displays and talk one-on-one with staff.This public hearing will only address the transfer of jurisdiction of the roadways. If you wish to speak, please arrive prior to 6 p.m. and register as a speaker at the check-in table.
NOTE:  It should be understood that FDOT has NO AUTHORITY, to override the Siesta Promenade application directly.  What we can bring out, is the deficiencies in how the traffic is to be handled, per what was stated in the Siesta Promenade hearings, the Kimley Horn engineering reports, and the County transportation reports:
