Directors Ron McCarty and Linda Garcia confer recently with Sarasota City Planner Dr. Clifford Smith over what type of hand rails would be historically appropriate on the Crocker Memorial Church.
The need for rails has been evident since the Church was settled into its current home in Pioneer Park. Raising the building above flood level was imperative, but that left some rather steep and shallow steps to negotiate into the front entry doors. Choosing rails for safety and appropriateness required research into past alterations and discussion to keep the Church looking as historically attuned as possible.
As soon as the city approves the plans decided by Ron and Linda, installation may commence. If you would like to contribute to this safety feature and amenity, that would be helpful! Send your check to HSoSC, 1260 12th Street, Sarasota FL 34236
