Famous for its beautiful beaches and stunning island chain, Sarasota is a popular tourist destination. It was also the winter home of the Ringling family. Founders of the famous Ringling Brother’s circus, their fortunes largely disappeared during the Great Depression. Their name lives on today with Sarasota’s Ringling Boulevard.
In 2006, a few local Sarasota organizations joined with the federal government in a lawsuit against Sarasota County. The lawsuit alleged that Sarasota County was using zoning regulations to intentionally discriminate against citizens with disabilities. The 2004 zoning regulations shut down two group homes treating alcohol and substance abuse. The county settled the case for $760,000, and the group homes remained in operation.
