Homeless Shelter Planning
April 1, 2014 there was an open to the public joint meeting at the Chamber of the Sarasota County Commission regarding plans to build a Come As You Are shelter for homeless people. Renouned top expert Dr. Marbut was there and this recording is of him talking with Sarasota Mayor Suzanne Atwell. Dr. Marbut is talking about if having a shelter will draw more homeless to the area and Mayor Atwell is asking if they can have the shelter way out of town in a cow pasture. Many residents in attendance were hoping to put it in such a cow pasture away from town.
