EPISODE DESCRIPTION

By Tyler Whitson.
Recorded 2013-04-10.
Air date: 2013-04-12.
Broadcast version.

There has recently been some community resistance to a request by River's Edge Community Church to rezone its property on the corner of Beneva and Bee Ridge Road so that it may be sold to a developer called the Beneva Land Trust, which would tear down the church and replace it with a 24-hour Wal-Mart grocery store.

So far, about 550 homeowners in the area have signed a petition to leave the zoning as is and are working to gain more signatures and support ahead of a County Commission meeting that will likely determine the future zoning policy of the property. This meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 24 at 1:30 p.m. at the Sarasota County Building, 1660 Ringling Boulevard. For more information about this effort, I spoke with Sharon Whalen, who has been helping to lead the community effort.
