‘Why shouldn’t downtown Sarasota be noisy?’

9 Oct, 2013

At a Rotary Club meeting, Biter attacks a group of downtown residents who participate in Sarasota Commission and Planning Board meetings

They’re afraid of 20-somethings spilling out of clubs at 2 am and bellowing at the moon. They’re afraid of throbbing music and honking horns.

Biter laments that commissioners feel they have no choice but to turn down projects that would, in his opinion, make downtown better. Biter plans to build a 180-unit apartment provide 800-to-1,000-square-foot apartments for rent at about $1,200 a month.
