Sarasota County is hosting two workshops to provide more information on the Energy Economic Zone (EEZ) and to invite public input on clean technology, incentives, and how to accelerate green economic development.

The workshops will be held:

6 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, in the Commission Chamber, Sarasota County Administration Center, 1660 Ringling Blvd., Sarasota.
6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, 3951 Woodmere Park Blvd., Room C, Venice.
Sarasota County’s proposed EEZ is part of a state pilot program. The workshops will provide opportunities for public input on the use of incentives and the types of businesses that would be eligible for the project.
