Peace & Justice Wednesday – 9am – Reimagining Sarasota Bayfront – Then Joe and Billy on today’s Vietnam

Written by on Sunday, March 11, 2018

This Wednesday, March 14, our first guest will be Bill Waddill, the Executive Director of the Sarasota Bay Planning Organization – www.thebaysarasota.org. Check out their website. This is the organization which raised enough money to hire the design group Sasaki to propose, by this July, a plan for the 42 publicly owned acres on the bay centered around the Van Wezel. Past SBPO board minutes and many other documents are at sbpo.thebaysarasota.org/documents/ and FAQs are at www.thebaysarasota.org/faqs. The 2.1 million raised for the Sasaki study came from nearly 60 donors and several foundations including The Patterson Foundation, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, the Charles and Margery Barancik Foundation, the Community Foundation of Sarasota County and the William G. and Marie Selby Foundation. Bill Waddill is a former Kimley-Horn & Associates Senior Vice President.

ON THE SECOND HALF OF THE SHOW Joe Newman will talk with reporter Billy Cox about Billy’s recent trip to Vietnam and reflect on how that government is working today.
