The City of Winter Park is working to set up specific zones to regulate where street performers can practice their trade while in Park Avenue shopping district.
The City has previously chosen to not regulate buskers or solicitors by not requiring them to file for a permit.
The Merchant Association, the Park Avenue Merchants Association, the City’s Parks and Recreation Board and the Code Compliance division have crafted an ordinance that would establish designated performance zones in Central Park and near the Winter Park Farmers Market. The rules will apply to all forms of public performance and soliciting, much like Orlando’s blue box program.
The City Commission will vote on the ordinance on December 14.
