SUNCOAST -  The county will soon be allowing electric bicycles on the nearly 11 mile trail that stretches from the McIntosh Road to the Historic Venice Train Depot. This announcement comes as the county will be extending the trail north to Payne Park in Sarasota and then east from Florence Street in Nokomis and to North Port.

Food trucks would be allowed to set up through most commercial areas of the county. This would let vendors be on public property as long as they are 50 feet from residential areas.
