Our next LFNA MEETING is Tuesday July 28th @7pm – Loch Haven Neighborhood Center.
We’ll review the association bylaws, bring everyone up to date on proposed traffic calming on Philadelphia, and get the latest from The Yard developer Chance Gordy. We’ll set some new goals, revisit some old ones, and start creating a focused vision for the neighborhood. Then we’ll begin to discuss strategies for working with the city to achieve them.
If you have other ideas or suggestions, you’re welcome to message me. Please plan on attending, bring your ideas AND bring your neighbors. – It’s a lot to cover and we can’t do it without you!

City of Orlando Metropolitan Planning Board Meeting – Tuesday, February 17, 2015Important Message to all Lake Formosa Neighborhood Residents…
Inverlad submitted an official application for the Ivanhoe Place development to the City of Orlando on December 22, 2014. This project will be reviewed at the February 17, 2015, City of Orlando MPB meeting. The plans have been considered sufficiently complete for review and the project was placed on the agenda for the February meeting. Because Inverlad is proposing an abandonment of a road (specifically Alden Road), there are two items for the MPB to consider: 1) the proposed road abandonment and 2) the proposed mixed-use development.
For further information:
MPB Agenda items with regard to this development proposal:

• Gordon Spears, Michael Jungen, and Louise Mills met with City of Orlando on March 24, 2008 to continue discussion on LFNA’s vision that incorporates the best aspects of the Neighborhood Horizons project while considering the impact of roadway realignment.
• Dean Grandin, Division Manager of the City Planning Division, has indicated that previous plans are ‘obsolete and that we need to formulate news ones.
• Gordon Spears, Michael Jungen, Louise Mills, and others from the LFNA Board will continue discussions with City of Orlando on this topic in the near future to develop a better understanding of City provisions, policies, regulations, rules, etc.
• A community meeting to develop LFNA neighborhood consensus will then be held in the future.
Please note the pdf document with possible Alden realignment options we discussed in our October meeting is posted here.
If Alden is realigned properly, it could help create a good streetscape and buffer from Orange and public transportion such as Lynx and commuter rail. We will be discussing this further in upcoming meetings.
