Sarasota News Leader November 23, 2012 BE WARY OF PARKING AT THE RITZ Just as parking was "liberated" at St. Armands Circle this week, the screws were tightened along Ritz-Carlton Drive in front of the down- town Sarasota hotel. Signs sprouted recently to say parking was by permit only. City of Sarasota Parking Manager Mark Lyons says the Ritz-Carlton owns the road, and it in- stalled the signs "to improve safety, turnover and flow." Members of the public are allowed to use the road, and they previously could park there for extended periods of time. "This was a surprise to us," said Lyons when asked about the hotel's new restriction. "The Ritz controls the parking."
