"Our destination has recently seen a tremendous expansion of non-stop flights into and out of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, which is quickly growing into one of the best airports in the region, further setting the Bradenton/Sarasota Area apart from other beach destinations in the state."

[Travel]  Visit Sarasota County Partners with Bradenton Area CVB to Celebrate New United Airlines Flight
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

Visit Sarasota County (VSC) and the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (BACVB) teamed up with United Airlines to add a nonstop route from Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) to Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ). “We’re giving our customers throughout the Washington region more access and options to fly to Florida,” says Ankit Gupta, Vice President of Domestic Network Planning, United Airlines.  “We’re excited to add Sarasota to Dulles and give fliers from the Sunshine State another convenient connection to our vast network.” The two destination marketing organizations celebrated the inaugural Flight 3402 on Sunday, October 27 with a water cannon salute, giveaways and a ribbon cutting ceremony at SRQ.

The two daily nonstop flights will now provide domestic and international travelers the ability to connect through one of United’s hub cities if a layover is necessary. This flight will also likely open economical opportunities due to the corporations and associations surrounding the Nation’s Capital—many of whom will now consider sourcing Sarasota County and the Bradenton area as a destination for meetings, now that there is a more direct route available and convenient group airlift access—key factors in business destination selection. Additionally, the central location of SRQ, only 5 miles from some of downtown’s largest meeting hotels, makes getting to meetings or incentive locations a breeze. 

Virginia Haley, President of VSC, Elliott Falcione, Executive Director of BACVB and Christian Dorn, Marketing Program Manager of Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority led a group of meeting professionals, who arrived on the first arriving flight Sunday, to Muse restaurant at The Ringling Museum for a celebration luncheon and tour. More extensive “Familiarization Tours” (known in the industry as ‘FAM’) of Sarasota and Bradenton will occur throughout the week with various local hotels, attractions and restaurants. “We have planned a varied and fun agenda to show off our amazing destinations to our special guests!” says Ellen Thomas, Senior Meetings Sales Manager of VSC. VSC and BACVB hope to work with more industry partners, meeting professionals, airlines, airports, media or each other, to continue promoting the destination and attract visitors. 

“Our destination has recently seen a tremendous expansion of non-stop flights into and out of the Sarasota Bradenton International Airport, which is quickly growing into one of the best airports in the region, further setting the Bradenton/Sarasota Area apart from other beach destinations in the state,” says Falcione. “We are thrilled to see the new United Flight from Dulles as the D.C. area is historically an important market for destination visitation from leisure travelers, groups and meetings. We know that those who take advantage of the flight (and especially the planners on the inaugural flight) will enjoy the convenience of flying into SRQ and landing minutes from the world-class beaches, dining, arts and more offered in the destination.”

[Education]  Bowden Fires Maultsby Based On Scathing Report
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

Sarasota County Superintendent of Schools Todd Bowden on Monday fired Assistant Superintendent of Schools Jeff Maultsby for inappropriate communication between the administrator and a subordinate.

The move came after outside investigator Vicki Sproat issued a report detailing allegations by employee Cheraina Bonner, who accused Maultsby of sexual harassment.

“After reviewing the entirety of the text messages exchanged between Mr. Maultsby and Ms. Bonner, and the transcripts and exhibits from each interview conducted by Ms. Sproat, it is clear Mr. Maultsby behaved inappropriately, and his actions are unbefitting of a school district employee,” Bowden said.

The Sproat investigation includes texts sent by Bowden to Bonner, saying such things as “You know I love you Ms. Raina” and “I’m just kidding. This will now carry over to tomorrow.” Maultsby told the investigator the comments were “razzing” over a pro football game where his team, the Raiders, beat hers, the Pirates. But Bonner said Maultsby also made inappropriate comments about women in the workplace, and it was enough she changed her workplace attire to be more covered.

Bonner eventually brought concerns to School Board Member Caroline Zucker, who brought the matter to Bowden. Bonner believed she was passed over for a promotion on Maultsby’s recommendation. Bowden eventually told Maultsby about the complaints. The report said Bowden’s actions played a primary role in failure to properly address the complaints.

“I disagree with the report findings and several conclusions made by Ms. Sproat,” Bowden said in response. “I look forward to delivering a full response to School Board members next week.”

Maultsby has 15 days to respond to and appeal his firing. The School Board will hold a special meeting on Nov. 5 where Bowden will officially notify the board of his intent to fire Maultsby. The board can act as soon as Nov. 19 on the recommendation if Maultsby does not appeal to decision.

[ShopTalk]  Grain Gains
Brittany Mattie, brittany.mattie@srqme.com

If you consider your home rustic, your style earthy, or just genuinely love the look and feel of natural wood, make a note to stop at Tremblay Wood Art's first public 'Trail Sale' for a one day only event. Osprey carpenter Ryan Tremblay has handcrafted custom projects for local businesses such as the drafting table for Nautilus Homes, the donor wall for the VAEC at Ringling College of Art & Design and tables for the Ridley's Porch at the Ritz Lido Key Beach Club. Now for his first public sale, he'll be bringing out all the stops, including a solar kiln, hand hewn barn beams, a myriad of furniture and art—all made of local recovered wood from 20+ species, including rosewood, norfolk, pecan and more.

"Being sea-locked in Florida has increased my focus on sustainability," Tremblay says. "I prefer to use the more rapid end of this renewable resource we call wood. Making mahogany jealous of pine is a challenge I love. Reclaimed lumber is my favorite and constantly on my radar." 

From 200+ kiln dry slabs, 200+ charcuteries/cheese boards, 15+ tables/desks, 300+ wine barrel staves, 100+ chrome table legs and 2000+ feet of sorted small stock lumber, kill the boardom one weekend by scouring the lot of exquisite wood goods, made with artisinal execution and sustainability in mind. Whether it's a log recovered from debris pile on Wharf Road in Sarasota after Hurricane Irma, rekindled to become a ruggedly cool piece of art, or rosewood charcuterie boards that have been soaked with three coats of food grade butcher block mineral, lemon and orange oils, and hand buffed with two coats of carnauba and beeswax, Tremblay is sure to always preserve the wood's natural beauty and enhance the glory of its grain.

Trail Sale: Saturday, November 2, 7am - 5pm at 862 South Tamiami Trl., Osprey, 34229, @tremblaywoodart.

[Shopping]  Artisans' World Marketplace Open Regular Hours During New Sidewalk Construction

The Mark condominium project and the Lemon Avenue streetscape has been the largest and one of most difficult to work through for nearby businesses, including Artisans' World Marketplace. "We owe a lot to First Church, our landlord and partner these 23 years, and to all of you who have bravely made the difficult trip through all the construction to shop in our store.," says owner Sandy Ramsey. "We have come to a point where we can see the horizon." One of the last things to be done is a new sidewalk outside the fairtrade boutique. The new sidewalk on Lemon and Pineapple Ave. are under construction as of Monday, October 28, and Artisans' plans to be open regular business hours during this time, with access from its back door. "While the process has been difficult, we believe this revitalization will bring new life to an often forgotten area of downtown," says Ramsey.

[Transportation]  Scenario Planning Workshop a Success for Sarasota/Manatee MPO

Over 100 elected officials and community members attended the Choices: Scenario Planning Workshop and explored how three themes, derived from community surveys, outreach and planning events, compared to the current trend, could play out over the next 50 years. Each scenario illustrates future types and locations of communities, which influence how people will travel in the future. Participants agreed they would like to invest in the Vibrant Places Scenario, Environmental Health Scenario, Economic Diversity scenario, and the Current Trend scenario, respectively. Furthermore, most preferred the Vibrant Places Scenario. It is important the MPO receives community feedback on these scenarios in order to build a collective community vision.

The public is invited to share their opinion by taking the second survey in a series of four total— the Scenario Survey, released at the Choices Workshop. The community vision directly influences the regional transformation of the transportation network in the Sarasota/Manatee MPO 2045 Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP). The purpose of the 2045 LRTP is to develop future transportation facilities in Sarasota and Manatee counties. The LRTP must consider the full complement of transportation modes – roads, bicycles, pedestrians, trails, transit, parking, railroads and airports. The plan spans at least twenty years and must be updated every five years. The 2045 LRTP must include robust public involvement to shape the final plan.

The survey closes November 30 and the public is encouraged to help build the community vision today. Take the Scenario Survey here, www.mympo.org/transformtomorrow
