Winter Park-Maitland Observer
Feb. 12 meeting on CRA

Over the past 18 months, we have seen significant development interest in our CRA District.  The majority of the interest is centered on our downtown core area.  The downtown core area is a four-block area bound by George Avenue to the north, U.S. Route 17-92 to the east, Maitland Avenue to the west, and Packwood Avenue to the south.  Horatio Avenue and Independence Lane are the main streets within this area where the redevelopment interest is focused.
Presently, four development teams, in different stages in their due diligence process, are preparing redevelopment proposals for submission to our city.  These proposals will include some or all of the two-and-a-half acres of city-owned property located within that core area, such as the old City Hall site and the parking lot on the north side of Horatio Avenue.  However, before any development team submits a proposal, our city must first decide on if and/or how our city property will be addressed as part of this redevelopment.  Therefore, the City Council and CRA Board have scheduled a joint special meeting on Feb. 12 at 6:30 PM in the City Hall Council Chambers to address two decision items as follows:

1. To consider a decision to include the city-owned parcels (including the old City Hall site and the north parking lot) in the redevelopment process for the core area; and,
2. To consider authorizing the publication of notice under FS 163-380—Disposition of Public Property—to invite proposals from qualified developers for the development of the real property indicated above to be submitted to the Council/CRA Board within 30 days from the date of publication of the notice.

The second agenda item is a state statutory requirement as well as a mechanism to entice development teams located outside of Central Florida to submit proposals.
This meeting on Feb. 12 is a very important one for our Maitland community and we need your input as Council and the CRA Board consider the items on the agenda. Please mark your calendars and plan to attend.
