There’s Still Time for Comp Plan Suggestions
Final Adoption Scheduled April 2017
The City is on a fast track with their Comprehensive Plan updates, but that does not mean it’s too late for citizen input and participation in the process.
Follow this link to the Comp Plan, where you can see how it is being edited and updated.
If you have questions, or if there is something you don’t understand, email your questions to email@example.com.
Commissioners Welcome Your Input
Commissioner Greg Seidel told the Voice, “I am in the process of gathering citizens’ questions and suggestions to bring forward at the December 12 Commission meeting. I hope everyone will feel free to contact us and to participate in this process.”
Comp Plan Meeting Dec. 5
Plan to attend the Comprehensive Plan Coffee Talk December 5, from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. at the Welcome Center, 151 W. Lyman Avenue. City Planning Staff will be there to explain the process and answer your questions.
The Comp Plan is vitally important to all of us who care about our city. It is the over-arching document that lays out the concepts and policies governing how Winter Park will look – now and in the future. Together, the Comp Plan, the Zoning Codes and the Building Codes form a sort of three-legged stool. The Comp Plan lays out the broad policies, while the Zoning Codes specify what type of structure can be built where, and the Building Codes say how the structure must be built.
Changes Possible Until Final Adoption
Even if you are unable to attend the Comp Plan Coffee Talk December 5, your input will still be welcomed by staff and elected officials. City Communications Director Clarissa Howard assured us that citizens can submit their input and that Comp Plan changes can be made until the final adoption by the City Commission, which is scheduled in April 2017.
After the library fiasco, there is a feeling that no one in Winter Park governs
“back street Winter Park.” Therefore, why waste time trying to contribute.
Unless you want a (proposed) library sized building on every corner, contribute.
The citizens in East Orange County have shown all of us that if you persevere, you can win over developers. The Orange County Commissioners listened. Hopefully, The Winter Park Commission will do likewise. Stay involved!
Are there really any, tax paying, residents Winter
Park in favor of this?
Or,even actual residents ?
