COALITION ANNOUNCES “SARASOTA’S SIX TO SAVE”
Hoping to spotlight the most threatened historic properties, archaeological sites, and cultural resources in the county!
The History & Preservation Coalition of Sarasota County announces the Sarasota’s Six to Save program. Similar to the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s “11 Most Endangered Historic Places” and the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation’s “Florida’s 11 to Save”, the preservation community in Sarasota County wants to bring awareness to historical resources at risk. Everything from development to climate change can render a historic property in peril. The goal is to highlight six resources per year that are in most danger.
The program is designed to increase the public’s awareness of the urgent need to save Sarasota County’s historic resources. Inclusion on the list is only a starting point for advocacy and education, and is intended to be part of a collaborative effort to identify solutions for each.
The Coalition is seeking nominations to the inaugural Sarasota Six to Save list.
PLEASE USE THE NOMINATION FORM BELOW. The application deadline is March 6, 2020. The list will be announced during the History & Preservation Coalition’s 4th Annual Sarasota County Heritage Awards Luncheon taking place April 25, 2020 at the Venice Golf & Country Club. Information on the list will follow on this website in May, which is Florida’s annual Historic Preservation Month.
