OCPS Rezoning Hearing

May 21st, 2009

A Public Hearing will be held on May 26 at 5:30 pm to discuss the closing or merging of schools. Residents are encouraged to attend, please arrive around 4:30 to ensure parking due to an event at the Amway Arena (parking is free, be sure to inform the parking attendant that you are attending a school board meeting).

Board Member Robbinson placed a proposal on the table that would close Hillcrest and Fern Creek and move the students to a new K-8 facility to be built in Audubon Park at 1500 Falcon Drive (Option #4).  The new school would be a zoned K-8 and requires the movement of students into the school.  The other zoned K-8 that we have is Blankner School.

This would move students that live in Audubon Park to the new K-8 facility instead of attending Audubon Park Elementary and Glenridge Middle school. So far our neighborhood would still be zoned for Winter Park High School.

The information on the entire package is at https://www.ocps.net/fs/governmental/pupil/Documents/Robbinson%20Packet%205%206%2009.pdf , the option that is up for a vote on the 26th is option 4.

The OCPS Rezoning Hearing will be held at the OCPS building near the Amway Arena at 445 West Amelia St., Orlando, Florida 32801. Parking is free, please arrive early to ensure parking availability.

Audubon Cell Tower – MPB Decision

February 17th, 2009

Today the City of Orlando Municipal Planning Board (MPB) unanimously voted to deny the request for a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) to allow a 105ft. tall communication tower within the AC-N zoning district. Though this decision is only a recommendation to the City Council and not the final decision, it does deliver a strong message to the City Council. We will post more information once the hearing is scheduled for the City Council to actually vote on this CUP.

 

Because today’s decision is only a recommendation to deny the CUP, please continue to send your concerns and comments to our City Commissioner, Robert Stuart.
