The photo above is from the Manatee-Sarasota Sierra Club website and depicts an idyllic setting of what much of Florida could still look like in 2050. However, as county officials continue to bend the restrictions of the long-term master plan know as 2050 plan to accommodate every Pat, Carlos, and Nathan developer, the more likely future will be cookie-cutter subdivisions delineated by traffic congested roadways. Gayle Reynolds, Chair for the Sarasota Conservation Committee of the Manatee-Sarasota Sierra Club, is part of an effort by concerned citizens to slow down the sprawl. She is joining Steve and Lew to talk about how the 2050 plan is being subverted from its original goal of offering a commonsense approach to growth and what some are trying to do about.
