The City of Orlando is considering a pilot program that would bring more public restrooms to the Central Business District.
Regular Bungalower readers will recall a previous Bring To Orlando post where we called out the City for only having two public restrooms downtown that are open at the end of the night when the bars close. That could potentially lead to thousands of downtown revelers having to relieve themselves in the streets and on historic buildings before finding their way home.
The new plan was reportedly inspired by a Nightlife Task Force and will place two mobile stalls at separate locations. The pilot test will be voted on by the Community Redevelopment Agency at its upcoming December 9 meeting and is expected to cost over $500,000.
The restrooms, if approved, will be located behind the downtown public library and at the Pine Street rideshare hub throughout spring 2020. The hours would be 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 11 p.m.-3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
If passed by the board, the new mobile restrooms could be rolled out as early as December 12.
