The City of Sarasota Designates New Neighborhood District



The City of Sarasota has officially recognized The Limelight District, an area which consists of businesses north of Fruitville down Lime Avenue through 12th street. “This area is a hidden treasure,” says Limelight District President Kim Livengood, APR, CPRC. “But we don’t want to stay undiscovered.  We are off the beaten path, but not too far from downtown Sarasota and definitely worth the extra few minutes it takes to get here.” Livengood is with The Bazaar on Apricot & Lime, an indoor indie market, and spearheaded the idea. It came to fruition with the help of Robert Livengood, Jenny Townsend, Brad Bierman and Howard Davis. Joining them to make up The Limelight District official board is Barbara Brant, Steve Rowe, and Debra Bartlett. Included and near the Limelight District is JDub’s Brewery, Music Compound, Brant’s Bookshop, Burgess Signs, Ed Smith Stadium, The Humane Society, Jon F. Swift Construction, Speed Pro Imaging, and so much more including the soon to open Wa Wa, the Marriott Hotel and the Pickleball Complex.

The Limelight District hosted quarterly membership meetings and established a board with the help of Sarasota Planning Director Steven Cover and City of Sarasota Neighborhood Planner Nancy Kelly to make this a reality.
