Siesta Seen ANOTHER SUSPECTED ENVIRONMENTAL VIOLATION HAS BEEN REPORTED ON THE BEACH; THE COUNTY COMMISSION PUBLIC HEARING DATE IS SET FOR A NEW PETITION REGARDING CONSTRUCTION AT 162 BEACH ROAD; AND VILLAGE BUSINESS UPDATES ABOUND By Rachel Brown Hackney Editor A Sarasota Audubon volunteer reported a new potential violation of county and state environmental regulations on the north end of Siesta in late December, I learned this week. "a great mix of migrant and localized shorebirds on Siesta Key and especially on the wide north end [of the] beach." However, "a large number of beach visitors" witnessed a man Allan Worms, a wildlife biologist, reported digging an artificial outlet on the west side of in a Dec. 30 email that he had been seeing a tidal pool in the vicinity of Accesses 4 and 5. With the wind having blown out of the north Monday and into Tuesday morning — from more than 20 mph to about 10 mph — the fine quartz sand on Siesta Beach appeared to have been sculpted by an artist.
