We are excited to announce the Third Annual Indie-FolkFest at the Mennello
Museum of American Art. Last year’s festival drew thousands of festival-goers in celebration of local Florida music, artists, food and community.
The 2017 Festival promises to be the biggest yet. Join us again as we showcase local, national and regional art, music and culinary talent in the beautiful lakeside sculpture garden of the Mennello Museum. This family-friendly, pet friendly and free event takes place this Saturday, February 11th, 12pm to 5pm.
City of Orlando Council Chambers, 2nd Floor, Orlando City Hall
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.
For more info visit cityoforlando.net/duplexes or contact City of Orlando Chief Planner Elisabeth Dang at 407-246-3408 or firstname.lastname@example.org
District 3 Comm. Robert Stuart, City of Orlando Planning and Transportation stff and Renaissance Planning Group invite the community to continue the conversation about the Virginia/Lake Highland Transportation & Land Use Study.
Please join us to hear an update on the study, including what infomation has been gathered from the community, in addition to data on current transportation infrastructure and parking, current land uses, development patterns and makret conditions in the area. We’ll also start discussions and present ideas based on this information to get your input on specifics like roadway improvements, sidewalk and crosswalk changes, bike routes, redevelopment opportunities and on-street parking changes.

Our next association meeting is this Tuesday! Here’s our agenda for discussion:
1.) The latest from the city regarding parking and traffic on Haven Dr. and cut-through traffic from Mills Park – and what residents can do if they are unhappy about the 2 hour parking restriction.
2.) The city’s upcoming Comprehensive Planning Study and the formation of a residential traffic committee to offer solutions to city planners and better position the neighborhood for the future impact of new development.
3.) It’s also time for our annual elections. If you’re interested in getting more involved and helping our organization have a stronger voice, now is a great time to join our board. It’s also the time we ask members of the association to pay their annual dues. Membership is open to any resident – dues are $10 per household.
4.) Open discussion on any additional items. Please let me know if you have an item for discussion and I’ll include it on our agenda that evening.
Additionally – As you know, our meetings are hardly formal. And while I appreciate the casual feel we have, I feel the meetings would benefit from a bit more structure. Considering this, I’d like to start by setting a predetermined time limit for this meeting to 1 hour. Attendees will appreciate knowing when to expect to leave and not feel awkward getting up if they need to go while someone is speaking.
Of course, we can still gather and talk individually after the meeting if needed. Sometimes that’s the best part!
I hope you’ll plan to attend.
President – Lake Formosa Neighborhood Association
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!
