The Sanibel Historical Village will host a discussion on the Sanibel Plan led by Porter and Chauncey Goss at a Twilight Talk at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 5. The event will take place at BIG ARTS’ Phillips Gallery.
The discussion will focus on how and why the Sanibel Plan came about, what has been accomplished, and how Sanibel’s future will continue to be shaped by the plan, according to village board president Karl Rodman.
“This gathering represents the first step in the historical museum’s intention to make this story an important part of our presentation,” Rodman explained. “We intend to demonstrate that pioneering farmers helped make the island what it became – and visionary planners helped to preserve what those pioneers created.”
Tickets are $10 each and must be paid in advance. “We advise people to reserve their spot as soon as possible, as the event is expected to sell out quickly,” said museum manager Emilie Alfino. To make your reservation, call Alfino at 472-4648. Checks and credit cards are accepted.
The historical village is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. The village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS). Admission is $10 for adults 18 and older; those under 18 and members are free. Docent-guided tours are available at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at no extra charge, based upon docent availability.
