Save the date for Ivanhoe Village’s 16th Annual Jingle Eve & Boat Parade event. Enjoy a festive evening stroll as you browse wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants. There will be food, entertainment, and door prizes. The event will take place from 6p to 10p.
As a follow–up to the update at the beginning of October, I have good news: all of the milestone wells that were sampled on September 27th were below cleanup target wells again this time. Therefore, the system will remain off and prepared for long term storage.
However, one well did show a slight concentration of Benzene though. Monitoring well DW-11 which has historically had low concentrations of Benzene had 9.6 µg/L of it this time. This will be monitored and will not require the system to be turned back on since this well is a 55 ft deep well and the treatment wells are 20 ft deep. Tentatively, we plan on over-purging that well or a well nearby address this.
Please feel free to call me anytime if you need additional information or have any questions. Have a great weekend.

I wanted to remind all of you about a meeting this afternoon where Florida Hospital is going to present its DRI plans to the public. This DRI has enormously potential to change our neighborhood. The meeting is at 6:30 PM at the Loch Haven Neighborhood Center on the lake at the corner of Alden and North Lake Formosa.
I hope to see you all there!

Preliminary Information Available at
Ivanhoe Village Main Street was approved by the City Council yesterday and is up and running. This is the organization that we heard about at our last meeting that is made up of businesses, cultural organizations, Florida Hospital, and community representatives, and is devoted to promoting the Orange Avenue corridor from Magnolia to Florida Hospital as a community “main street” providing recreation, culture, commerce and health care to our community. This group plans to eventually expand into the commercial parts of our neighborhood along Virginia and Alden. I believe that we share many of the same long term goals as this group. Ivanhoe Village is planning a kickoff event to celebrate its inception on Saturday 26 April. This event will feature live music, refreshments, activities for the kids, and various other activities sponsored by the member organizations and businesses.
-Gordon Spears, Vice President
Update from Gordon Spears, 10/2/07:
I think that the main points that I want to bring up with the FH planners are:
1) The neighborhood’s preference for mixed use along the alden corridor (rather than Commercial as FH has proposed) in keeping with the city’s comp plan vision for the rest of the Alden corridor.
2) Ways that FH can partner with the City in developing adjacent parks such as the USDA site and improvements to Loch Haven Park and the Lake Formosa loop trail.
3) Ways that FH can partner with the City in facilitating transportation improvements such as expanded LYMMO service to Florida Hospital/Loch Haven Park, and optimal pedestrian/bicycle access to the proposed Commuter Rail station.
The DRI modification application document is available on line at the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council’s web site: http://www.ecfrpc.org/Main/Main.asp
