County Govt

Long before the Laurel Civic Association was formed, the concerned citizens in the Laurel area have worked with Sarasota County Government in order to effect permanent and positive change. We have worked for years with numerous branches of Sarasota County Government, citizens and foundations in order to bring needed improvements to Laurel and the Sarasota County. Some of our accomplishments include: A new community center and an expanded 14-acre park, An addition to the community center to house the Laurel Civic Association's programs, New paved streets and improved drainage (children walked in the streets and waded water to get to the bus stop before), New sidewalks (children don't have to share the road with cars now), We are one of the founding members of Community Youth Development Project, Participated in the original group for Florida Kid Care for Sarasota County, Secured grants to provide activities for children at the Sandra Sims Terry Community Center, Worked with Parks and Recreation and Office of Housing and Community Development to secure a larger space for our programs in the Sandra Sims Community Center.
