Sarasota: St. Armands Circle Outdoor Events Banned


No more permits for outdoor events at St. Armands Circle will be issued during the peak tourist season this winter and spring, according to a moratorium ordered by the City Commission Monday night.

The temporary ban, supported by many local merchants, would allow no more special events in the St. Armands Circle Park from Feb. 1 to April 20. Meanwhile, city staff are working on an ordinance to make the seasonal ban permanent.
