SARASOTA, FLA. (January 27, 2020) — Claudia Barnett, a sales associate with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s Sarasota - Downtown office, has been elected 2020 chair of the Sarasota Historic Preservation Advisory Board. Appointed by the City Council, she is serving her third year on the board. 

An accomplished professional with 40 years of experience in real estate, Claudia specializes in historic preservation.  After ten years as a snowbird living on Siesta Key, she and her husband Jack relocated from Washington, D.C. to Sarasota full time, where they purchased and renovated their own Landmark 1926 home in the Sapphire Shores neighborhood — on the first lot ever sold by John Ringling. 

The Sarasota Historic Preservation Advisory Board was established for the purposes of recommending the designation of historically significant structures and archaeologically significant sites to the City Commission. The board also can recommend the designation of historically significant districts, approve applications for moving permits and review recommendations for local properties being referred to the National Register of Historic Places.

“It is an honor to protect and recognize the value of historic properties in Sarasota," said Claudia Barnette. "As we tear things down and build new, we need to protect the Sarasota that people come to when they anticipate paradise. Thoughtful adaptive reuse and sustainability for the future is the current challenge we face in Sarasota and throughout Florida. Protecting the integrity of Sarasota for the future is my personal goal.”
