VIDEO: Long Bar Pointe: At What Cost?


Local volunteers shot this video in an effort to get the truth out about Long Bar Pointe and the request to develop it into a resort area with a 250-room hotel, marina, large convention center, hundreds of thousands of square feet of office and commercial retail space and thousands of residential units - all on Sarasota Bay. 

It truly is a question of at what cost do we offer up this beautiful shoreline of Mangrove Forest and Sea grasses which support so much marine life, which in turn supports our quality of life?

Special thanks to videographer Rob Harris, as well as the R&R Foundation and Hausman Family for their support in the protection of this incredible ecosystem which is so important to Sarasota Bay and Manatee County.
