Welcome to Sarasota County's Wiki 

This wiki gives you an easy and quick way to collaborate with others and share your ideas, comments and suggestions with the Sarasota County commissioners about policies and regulations they consider.  You can participate in the wiki several ways:

  • You can read what’s posted on the wiki, then edit it and save your changes.
  • You have an opportunity to comment on the policy or join the online discussion.
  • You can see your changes and the changes of others at any time, as well as the comments people have made.
Each policy or proposed ordinance will be “open” for editing and comments until a specified date. After the wiki closes, Sarasota County staff will review the results and prepare a summary for the commission to consider as part of its public input.
