City of Sarasota

Sarasota County

Manatee County



Summary

The City’s current population of 55,000 

represents 14% of Sarasota County’s 

population and 7% of the total population 

of Sarasota and Manatee County’s 

population.



Why does it matter?

As the largest city, Sarasota is a major 

destination for surrounding communities.  

Regional development patterns for 

housing inside and outside the City will 

continue to influence changes in travel 

times and distances to daily destinations.

is 44,187, which represents 28% of the 

jobs in Sarasota County and 17% of the 

jobs in Sarasota and Manatee County.

Why does it matter?

employment in the region.  The City’s 

ability to attract new job opportunities

COMMUNITY PROFILE

Projected Population Change in Sarasota



Summary

The City is growing and is projected to 

continue to grow. The City’s 

population is projected to increase by 

20% over the next 20 years.

Why does it matter?

Growth in population will continue to 

mean increases in regional and local 

travel demand during peak and off-

peak periods of the day and week.  It 

will also mean changes in demand and 

cost of housing, which will in-turn 

influence people’s travel choices.

COMMUNITY PROFILE

Age Distribution of Sarasota Residents



Summary

Almost half of all residents in Sarasota 

are not old enough to drive or are at 

an age where they may reduce their 

driving due to age-related abilities. 

Why does it matter?

Creating a transportation system that 

can accommodate children and the 

elderly can expand mobility options 

for a wide range of the City that can’t 

drive.

COMMUNITY PROFILE

Commute Mode Share: 

City of Sarasota vs Area Counties

Summary

People that live in the City of 

Sarasota use a wider range of 

travel options to get to work 

than in the County.  However, 

most people drive to work.



Why does it matter?

Access to public 

transportation and density do 

have an impact on travel 

choices.  Increasing public 

transportation services and 

having people live and work 

more closely can help reduce 

travel demand, particularly on 

major corridors during typical 

commute times.

Commute Mode Share: 

City of Sarasota vs Peer Cities

Summary

Mid-sized cities can be 

competitive and have higher 

rates of people walking, biking, 

and taking transit.

Why does it matter?

Making investments in walking, 

biking, and public transit does 

have an impact on the travel 

choices people make.  Combined 

with increasing densities and 

development patterns, it 

becomes more convenient to 

make shorter trips by foot, 

bicycle, or public transit.

COMMUNITY PROFILE

Where people work that live in Sarasota: 

Destinations

Summary

7 in 10 Sarasota residents that 

are employed work outside of 

the City. 3 in 10 Sarasota 

residents that are employed 

work in the City. 6 in 10 

residents live within 10 miles or 

less of work.



Why does it matter?

The majority of residents that 

work leave the City to get to 

their job.  If the City can attract 

more businesses, it would put 

less demand on the regional 

transportation system and give 

more people options to get to 

work beyond driving.

Where people live that work in Sarasota: 

Destinations

Summary

Almost 9 in 10 workers in Sarasota 

live outside of the City. More than 

half of people employed in 

Sarasota live within 10 miles of 

their job. 



Why does it matter?

While the majority of workers in 

Sarasota commute into the City, 

the majority of them live within 

10 miles or less of their job.  This 

group of commuters represents 

the greatest opportunity for mode 

shift to walking, biking, and transit 

because of their shorter commute 

distances.  Increasing housing 

options in Sarasota can reduce the 

need for long commute distances.

What would you change?

Where do you feel unsafe?

What places are difficult to access?

Red Stickers are for streets that 

you think need to change.


MAP EXERCISE

What do you like or not like about this place?

What works well here? What doesn’t work well?

What could be done to improve it?

Use Post-it notes to describe your 

comment.

points with the group.
