UPDATE: The City Commission Work Session has been rescheduled from October 8 to 1-3 p.m. October 15 instead.
The City of Winter Park is asking for feedback on a recently-released report on its proposed Orange Avenue Overlay.
The plan, which was put on a sudden and temporary hiatus this summer, calls to overhaul the Winter Park Comprehensive Plan that would allow for the construction of buildings that are much larger than what is currently allowed in a certain section of the city – the Orange Avenue corridor seen below.
The report, which you can see HERE, was requested by a number of residents at public hearings, to help them better visualize what the new height and density restrictions would allow for in the area so the City of Winter Park included the following images to help paint that picture. Developments and neighborhoods referred to in the plan include Sodo Shopping Center, the Rialto Condo on West Sand Lake Road, and a number of properties in Avalon Park, as well as a few properties on the Gulf Coast, including Tampa’s Armature Works.
Adoption of the Orange Avenue Overlay is scheduled for consideration later in 2020 but residents have an opportunity to provide feedback on the plan right now by contacting the Mayor and City Commissioners at [email protected]
A public virtual work session is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. Thursday, October 8 and you can sign up for it by emailing Commissioner Cooper at [email protected] with “Focus Group” as the subject line.
