With a storm and high winds expected in Central Florida this afternoon, Winter Park City Hall will close at 3:30 p.m. and meetings scheduled for today are canceled.

The Planning & Zoning Board scheduled for 6 p.m. today will now be held at 6 p.m. on Jan. 17. The board was set to consider a proposal from Rollins College to build a three-story, 80,000-square-feet project with 48 units of faculty and staff housing.

The project slated for the corner of New England and Virginia Avenues is an attempt by the college to provide workforce housing close to campus. It also includes a coffee shop and a book store.

Today’s Civil Service Board meeting will be rescheduled for a date not yet announced.

The Winter Park Community Center will remain open until 6:30 p.m. for after-school care only.

The city expects normal operations to resume on Wednesday, according to a news release.
