Selby Gardens' Master Plan: Facts to Frequently Asked Questions

BrandStory

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY OCT 2, 2019

The more people learn the facts about Selby Gardens' Master Site Plan, the more people support it. Here are four key facts:

1. Funding  Ninety-nine percent of current funding for Phase I comes from private philanthropy.

2. Parking  On peak days Selby Gardens turns away over 200 visitors due to lack of parking. Building the Sky Garden facility on U.S. 41 allows Selby Gardens to grow parking capacity and grow walkable gardens within our existing property by 50 percent, while adding nearly 50,000 square feet of free public access. 

3. Preservation  Marie Selby’s original home and gardens, the historic Payne Mansion, and the Augusta block of Palm Avenue are preserved.

4. Traffic  Traffic studies determined Selby Gardens’ visitors account for three percent of current traffic and would account for just 3.8 percent upon completion.

Learn more at Selby Gardens and join nearly 5,000 friends who have signed the petition.
