Just wanted to let you know that the Mills Park developers are working on some revisions to the Haven / Nebraska intersection. The curb will be extended to clearly prohibit the right turn motion. They are still working with traffic engineering staff to finalize the plan.

The community meeting to discuss the Lynx Lymmo project will be held on Thuesday 26 January 2012 (see attached public notice). The consultants will be presenting their preferred northern alignment at that meeting. Our neighborhood has been very much engaged in this urban planning effort and we have every reason to anticipate that our concerns and preferences will be reflected in the Consultant’s recommended alignment. This meeting will be our final chance to influence the future path of this transportation system which could be a huge benefit to our neighborhood. I hope that each of you will attend and that the Lake Formosa neighborhood will be well represented.

LYNX and the City of Orlando are partnering to
evaluate the expansion of the LYMMO
circulator system. This LYMMO Expansion
Study will provide a fresh look at transit
modes, alignment alternatives, ridership
demand, costs and impacts, and potential
funding strategies associated with an expanded
LYMMO service. The study is being conducted
following Federal Transit Administration (FTA)
Alternative Analysis procedures to keep open
the prospect of future federal funding for an
expanded LYMMO system.
During the meeting, we will present
information on existing conditions within the
study area (see map), as well as goals and
objectives for LYMMO improvements, and a
preliminary framework of alignment and mode
alternatives to be evaluated.
We seek your initial ideas regarding future
LYMMO routes, services, stations and other

Please try to attend this meeting on Wednesday. While this project is already designed, and while there are currently no plans to 4-lane Virginia, this is a good opportunity to remind the City Transportation Dept of our opposition to any widening of Virginia.

This is a reminder about the public meeting this afternoon (Thursday 20 November) at 5:00 at the Lock Haven Neighborhood Center at the corner of Alden and North Lake Formosa. FDOT will be presenting it’s revised plans for Orange Avenue at 5:30 and 6:30 with Q&A sessions before and after the presentations. Thanks to your involvement and the involvement of the Ivanhoe Village merchants, Senator Lee Constantine, Representative Scott Randolph, and Commissioner Robert Stuart, FDOT has substantially revised its plans for Orange Avenue resulting in the elimination of far fewer parking spaces than they had originally proposed. I hope that everyone will come out tonight to show FDOT that this project is still on our radar.
On another note, Ivanhoe Village is holding it’s first Jingle Eve celebration tomorow evening (Friday 21 November) from 6:00 till 10:00 featuring holliday musical performances along Orange Avenue from Ivanhoe Row north to the White Wolf cafe. I hope to see you there!
HERE is a flyer from FDOT regarding a public meeting scheduled for next Thursday to discuss the Orange Avenue resurfacing project. FDOT has already met with Ivanhoe Village, and has made substantial changes to their original plan and retaining most of the parking spaces that had been scheduled for removal. Thanks to everyone who wrote letters to our elected officials and the FDOT District Secretary. Our activism has certainly had an effect on FDOT’s plans.
Thanks for your participation!
