THE 'NO RIGHT ON RED' SITUATION AT THE STICKNEY POINT ROAD INTERSECTION CONTINUES TO CAUSE CONSTERNATION; A NEW SLATE OF OFFICERS AND BOARD MEMBERS HAS BEEN PROPOSED FOR THE VILLAGE ASSOCIATION; AND THE SIESTA CHAMBER FINALLY HAS A NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Siesta Seen SIESTA SEEN The no right on red traffic issue at the inter- section of Stickney Point Road and Midnight Pass Road continues to vex county leaders and Siesta Key residents, as evidenced this week by discussions of the County Commission and the Siesta Key Village Association (SKVA). During the County Commission meeting in Venice on March 4, Commissioner Nora Patterson told her colleagues, "I'd really like our staff to get involved with [the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)] on this. … It is going to create more of a problem."
