Both the president of the Siesta Key Village Association (SKVA) and the execu- tive director of the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce planned to be present on the evening of Aug. 7 when the Sarasota County Planning Commission considered whether to recommend the County Commission approve outdoor displays on Siesta Key under strict guidelines. Debra Lynn-Schmitz, e x e c u t i v e d i r e c t o r of the Chamber, said she was prepared to offer the support of her members. SKVA President Wendall Jacobsen told about 20 members of his organization at their Aug. 5 meeting that while he probably would voice support for the proposed revision of the Siesta Key Overlay District (SKOD), he also would stress enforcement if the changes ultimately win approval of the County Commission. Mark Toomey, owner of Robin Hood Rentals and a leader of the business group advo- cating for the revision, told The Sarasota News Leader he had sent an email to all the members of that Siesta Key Village Association President Wendall Jacobsen and Treasurer Roz Hyman listen to a comment during the organization's Aug. 5 meeting.
