To view public comments, visit City-Data.com referencing Sarasota, its neighborhoods and amenities.
There are gated communities downtown, which offer walkability, however, many Florida communities are developed and center around recreational activities which do not include a town center. It is a bit of a give and take.
If you will be relocating to Florida from Wisconsin, you can also check out the Sarasota district school website which will provide you with pertinent information.
