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.

General Membership Meeting – LYMMO Meeting 1/26

Neighbors,

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.

Monthly update for Sellers Auto / Artist Studio petroleum cleanup site 489201547 / 489201548 update #59A)‏

Good afternoon,

As a followup 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.
