Investment Survey

In the next 25 years, almost $5 Billion may be invested in the Sarasota/Manatee transportation system. Your priorities will help decide which programs and projects are submitted to state and federal transportation departments for funding.  

Over the past year, we have hosted workshops, gatherings, and surveys intended to gather public opinion on the future of transportation in Sarasota and Manatee County.

Based on this public input, we have created a set of ‘Vision Statements’. These Vision Statements outline our top priorities and are used to guide us as we continue in the Long Range Transportation Planning process.

We have 3 Vision Statements: 
1. Create vibrant places
2. Preserve environmental health
3. Promote economic diversity

The purpose of the following questions is to gauge how strongly these statements align with your goals and vision for the future of the Sarasota and Manatee community.
