WARNING: Long Bar Pointe development will damage your bay.
Long Bar Pointe is a proposed development in Manatee County that could severely damage fish nurseries and bird nesting sites in north Sarasota Bay. If you have ever enjoyed fishing, boating or nature-sightseeing on Sarasota Bay, watch this video and contact the Manatee County commissioners (http://www.mymanatee.org/home/government/board-of-commissioners/E-mail.html) to tell them you oppose this over-the-top development. Sarasota County residents, this is your bay and your battle, too. Watch to see what we could lose if it is approved.
