North Port [†] as Described in 2013

The City of North Port, at 104-square-miles and more than 57,000 residents, is the largest city in Sarasota County and is now the lead city in the North Port-Bradenton-Sarasota Metropolitan Statistical Area. A median age of 40 and nearly 10,000 school children, North Port is only 20 percent built out. This translates into plenty of room to develop.

Some residents have described this up-and-coming community as a blank canvas, ready for a Picasso or a Michelangelo to paint the picture of a glorious lifestyle. But most think of Norman Rockwell, due to North PortŐs young families and that special Ňsmall town feelingÓ that one gets when attending the local winter holiday parade or visiting the community library.
