altThe North Trail Redevelopment Partnership is a broad-based, collaborative community initiative that fosters sustainable, predictable, economic redevelopment along North Tamiami Trail to achieve a revitalized, attractive, safe and inviting environment for business, institutions and neighborhoods.
 
The North Trail Redevelopment Partnership was formed in January 2009 by then Mayor Richard Clapp as a task force comprised of local citizens to study, understand and work to facilitate positive redevelopment of the North Trail.    The membership of this non-profit organization includes representatives of Ringling College, USF, New College, Ringling Museum, and the Sarasota Police Department along with Indian Beach-Sapphire Shores, Bayou Oaks, and Central Cocoanut neighborhoods and local architects, planners, business owners, real estate brokers, and City of Sarasota planning staff.   

Membership is open to any anyone willing to actively participate.   We collectively meet twice a year (March and October) from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm at the Center for Arts & Humanity (1226 N. Tamiami Trail), first floor conference room.
