This Tuesday Sarasota County held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Downtown Cooling Plant.
The plant was built to operate efficiently and accommodate the growth of county facilities. It cools over 1,200,000 sq. ft. of air-conditioned space and can produce over 2,650 tons of cooling with current capacity and built-in growth.
Sarasota County, located on the Gulf coast of Florida, is a premier community that features arts, culture, manufacturing, fine dining, professional sports, eco-tourism and the best beaches in the United States. Approximately 417,000 residents live within the county's unincorporated area and four municipalities, the cities of Sarasota, North Port and Venice, and the town of Longboat Key. Sarasota County government works closely with these municipalities as well as nonprofit organizations, volunteers and others to provide a superior level of service to its residents, businesses and visitors.
