Siesta Key is the Largest Unincorporated Barrier Island in Florida. Should we incorporate? Let’s find out together.
Save Siesta Key’s number one objective is to work through the legal and political process of getting incorporation on the ballot for the community. We believe incorporation and responsible self-government provide us with our best opportunity to maintain the unique charm and vibe of Siesta Key, and to preserve our quality of life for residents and business owners. Most importantly, we believe the community of Siesta Key has the right to vote on creating their own municipality.
Imagine OUR Community
Imagine the town being run by people who live here. An elected group of citizens who will strive to keep our island an exceptional place to work, live, vacation and retire.
Imagine leadership that promotes community involvement, collaboration between residents and businesses, managed growth, and preservation of our magnificent environment.
Imagine the town’s core values being integrity, transparency, accountability, mutual respect, decorum, and Siesta Key hospitality.
Imagine having a larger voice and a seat at the table, in the decisions that affect our community.
Imagine having a smaller, more efficient government.
Imagine working together to improve things like traffic, bike paths and entrances to our beautiful island.
Imagine building a community that can make a real difference on our little slice of heaven.
Save Siesta Key Needs Your Support!
Local bills are rarely approved the first time; it is customary to resubmit. We feel confident that our submission for incorporation in 2022 will be successful. Our Sarasota County Legislative Delegation in Tallahassee has changed from six to four members.
Two of our “no” votes were redistricted out of Sarasota County. We are actively working to obtain a unanimous vote in support, addressing the concerns of the former delegates, shoring up our efforts with influential and effective representation in Tallahassee and continuing to increase our efforts on educating the public on and off the island.
