The City of Orlando Municipal Planning Board and Planning Staff want to hear from residents and businesses as we explore changes to our code about the development of tandems and duplexes in the City.

The goals of these proposed changes are to ensure that as Orlando grows, we grow in a way that both preserves and the unique character of our neighborhoods and provides for affordable, quality housing opportunities for our residents.

Discussion topics include design goals that will help ensure these new developments complement and reflect the special character of our neighborhoods.

City of Orlando Metropolitan Planning Board Meeting Tuesday, February 17, 2015 Important 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.
