The Sheriff's Training building, located at 6647 Midnight Pass Road will soon be part of the surplus property the County will either decide to retain or sell. Representatives from the Siesta Key Chamber of Commerce, Mark Smith and Siesta Key Association, Bob Stein, have met and discussed retaining the property with all the County Commissioners in the past two months. The two groups representing Siesta Key see the viability of utilizing the property as a parking lot for the area since the southern part of the island experiences the same parking shortages the Village has during Season. The rendering above shows the property could house a 40 foot by 20 foot building along with 182 parking spots. Parking rendering courtesy of Mark H. Smith, Smith Architects.
