CONA is a coalition that represents more than seventy neighborhood, condominium, homeowner, and civic associations plus individual members dedicated to working to protect neighborhood interests and to providing a voice for all of the neighborhoods in Sarasota County. 
We were founded in 1961. 
CONA exists to leverage the power of neighborhoods and to make Sarasota County more neighborhood-friendly.
