The Sarasota County (Fla.) Emergency Management officials say they need more community uses for the hurricane shelter proposed by the Sarasota Memorial hospital to make it financially viable, according to an article North Port Sun website.

The plan is to construct a 35,000-square-foot evacuation center with a capacity to hold 1,000 evacuees during an emergency. The shelter would be on a new hospital campus in Venice.
